THE WORLD TALKS ABOUT THE NEW SONG “FOR IT ALL NOW”
"Outernational is one of the few bands that means serious fucking business." - Remezcla: NYC, USA
"Stridshornen tutar. Slagorden ekar. Revolutionärerna ifrån Brooklyn är tillbaka. (Battle horns blare, slogans fly, the revolutionaries from Brooklyn are back)" - Rock Foto: Stockholm, Sweden
"It all reinforces their ”one-world music’ position, and encapsulates the modern times better than most others who attempt it, including Manu Chao." - Hell’s Rumbings: Montreal, Quebec, Canada
"This song is filled with lyrics that paint the reality of a revolutionary. They must be willing to put their very lives on the line. This song says nothing about being willing to kill, but speaks to being willing to die, with your head held high." - True Rebel: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
"El 2013 es un año muy importante para Outernational. Fue el comienzo de su gira internacional. Este resultado se vio reflejado en una nueva canción llamada ‘For It All Now’" - Terra: Bogotá, Colombia
"La banda, que Morello identificó como "el próximo Rage Against The Machine", y que de manera inteligente denomina su música "future rock" (rock del futuro) -sin entrar en polémicas o definir géneros separados, que de hecho su música los tiene todos-, estuvo tocando en Colombia el pasado semana." - Radionica: Bogotá, Colombia
“Çà fait longtemps que l’on attendait un groupe comme ça! (How long we have waited for a group like this!)” - MaMusicale: Paris, France
Hello worldwide team Outernational! We appreciate all your notes, letters, posts and concerns about us here in NYC after Hurricane Sandy. Thankfully, we are all ok and without any real damage. But many people close to us have been affected in very serious ways by the hurricane and flooding, especially on Staten Island, the LES, and the edges of Brooklyn. This is a very heavy time.
The storm laid bare many truths - the deadly reality of global warming and of the dehumanizing inequality of this system. People in poor areas (housing projects and outer boroughs of NYC) were hit hardest by the storm and are still dealing with tremendous suffering. Outernational singer Miles Solay spent the last two weeks visiting some of the hardest hit areas, reporting on people’s stories, helping with basic necessities, and of course bringing the idea that humanity doesn’t have to be this way and that we, as people, could handle problems like this much differently if we had a revolutionary society. Recommended:You can read these reports and more here.
This Friday Outernational will be performing at a benefit concert in NYC, all proceeds go to the Waves For Water charity, which has a special program to respond to NYC’s beach communities after the hurricane.
