X Ambassadors have released a new song called “Hoping,” with all proceeds from sales and streams of the track for the next six months earmarked for the American Civil Liberties Union. Frontman Sam Harris said in a statement, “‘Hoping’ is a song for everyone currently living in fear. We proudly support the efforts of the ACLU, an organization which combats hatred and prejudice in this country.”
Harris added, “We will continue to fight against sexism, racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, homophobia, xenophobia, and the pervasive intolerance being encouraged under our current administration. As long as there are those of us who suffer and experience injustice in this world, we will continue to use our music and our voices to speak up. Our resistance is one of love and hope.”
- “Hoping” is available to download and stream on all major platforms.
- X Ambassadors’ major label, VHS, was certified gold last summer for sales of more than half a million copies. The set features the Number One modern rock radio track “Renegades” and the Top 20 single “Unsteady.”
- The band is currently on a string of tour dates and will perform at the Pot Of Gold Festival in Chandler, Arizona on March 18th.
