Salmon Releases Song for Charlottesville

Leftover Salmon released a song from their forthcoming album several weeks ahead of the anticipated release in response to the terrorist attack at protests in Charlottesville, VA. Aptly titled "House of Cards," the song is a reaction to the recent political climate and the direct impact of the nation's leaders on actions of unsatisfied civilians. They also released an accompanying video that shows powerful footage from the last several months in the mainstream political media.

"In these strange and dangerous times, music has a role to play in the national conversation," said guitarist Vince Herman. "There's a long tradition of that in the U.S. and we're proud to use our voices to say 'This is not normal.'"

This timely track is not only a reflection of these unrestful times, it's also the band's way of encouraging other artists to use their musical voice to offer support to protestors and to write and sing acts of protest in themselves. The five-minute video follows the timeline of the song, pulling, at times unsettling, images from events of last year and as recently as this past weekend. By releasing the song, the band hopes to spread awareness about what's going on in the streets and peacefully contribute to the movement against racism and intolerance.
