June 11th: Sing Me Home, A Country Music Compilation for Anarchist Prisoners

Listen to Sing Me Home: Songs Against Prison, here.

Sing Me Home is an album of folk and country cover songs against prisons and the police. All proceeds from the album go towards benefiting long-term anarchist prisoners in tandem with the June 11th international day of solidarity.

These are the voices that sing through us, sing with us, sing us home. These songs are about killing guards and getting free, about the concreteness of prison walls and also how dream and memory are able to travel through those walls, about the pain of missing the ones you love and about the strength of solidarity. We hope that these songs become part of our lives and that singing them becomes a source of power.

From the bandcamp website:

Lovely cassette tapes. 200 copies available, 50 of which can be sent into prison. Get in touch if you’d like to order a bunch to sell at events, we’ll send them to you at cost so you can send off the proceeds. Price includes shipping in the US.

Includes unlimited streaming of Sing Me Home: Songs Against Prison via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Unfortunately, we can’t really sing anyone home. Please support these other projects:
