North Carolina punk band The Muslims unleash a new single announce the release date of their forthcoming album Fuck These Fuckin Fascists.
Taking inspiration from classic punk and Afropunk roots, The Muslims have successfully synthesized the “fuck you” energy of the oppressed into an ass-kicking, head-smashing, fascist-punching sonic experience. The soon-to-be-released LP, Fuck These Fuckin Fascists, is the ultimate sing-along anthem against all forms of oppression.
It’s the perfect balance of humour, tenderness and political rage, wrapped in affirmations for oppressed peoples. Musically, The Muslims continue to bring dynamic melodies to the foundation of classic punk riffs, sprinkled with out-of-this-world rhythmic outbursts. Lyrically, the band unapologetically uses music as a vessel to call out racism, the American political landscape, and white supremacy.
The band’s leader and resident bad Muslim, Sheikh QADR, draws songwriting inspiration from trailblazing Black artists, such as Bobby Hackney Sr. (Death), Nina Simone, Jimi Hendrix, and Poly Styrene (X-Ray Spex), while drummer Ba7Ba7 and bassist Abu Shea blend their diverse musical backgrounds to drive a noisy-melodic truck into your face.
Today, the band share their new single, “Unity,” a song dedicated to activists fighting to make a change and call out the hypocrisies in government policy.
“Love is an action word that demands of us to speak up and fight, passionately, for the future we all deserve,” proclaims vocalis QADR.
“I’m so tired of their belligerent screams for ‘UNITY,’ corny dances and symbolic gestures. We don’t want Harriet Tubman on a fuckin $20; we want reparations and no more racist police.”
The Muslims unapologetically use music as a vessel to call out racism, the American political landscape, and white supremacy. They formed in 2017, brought together by the aftermath of the 2016 Trump election and have since released three albums – (2018), Mayo Supreme (2019), Gentrified Chicken (2020), and one EP, Inshallah: Tomorrow We Inherit the Earth (2020) – and are dead set on really stirring things up!
