Refused has donated 100% of proceeds from their VIP / Meet & Greet tour packages to Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS). The packages were sold on the band’s recent North American tour with Plague Vendor and the Coathangers; over $3k was raised and donated to the charity.
Drummer David Sandström states, “To be blunt, MOAS is doing what the EU would be doing if it was a functioning political entity. They're getting shit done, picking drowning children, women and men out of the ocean and putting them on European shores. It's crucial work and a no-brainer for us to get behind.”
The Swedish hardcore band released Freedom last summer, their first album in 17 years since their 1998 album The Shape of Punk to Come. Refused will return to North America as support for Deftones in August and will perform at Riot Fest Chicago this Fall.
