Oshawa, Ontario based rockers Crown Lands continue to leave their mark on 2018, which included touring as the supporting band for One Bad Son. This week the band is dropping a brand new music video for their song “Mountain”.
“Mountain” depicts the horrors of Colonialism and the history of Residential schools in Canada, which is a topic near and dear to the band, as one of the members is Mi’kmaw. The name “Crown Lands” is their way of reclaiming the term for Indigenous Empowerment. The video premiered with Global Citizen, an international charity that focuses on human rights. Their hope is to call on Justin Trudeau to reinstate a director for the National Inquiry into Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women.
There will be a Global Citizen show held at Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver on April 12th where Crown Lands will support Sam Roberts and will be releasing the video as part of the show. The purpose of this night is to raise awareness for how global warming affects women more in impoverished countries around the world.
Our hats go off to Crown Lands for their dedication to such an important cause. Please take the time to watch this extremely compelling video and follow the band on their socials to learn more.
I’m Nicole, a biology teacher by day, but my life revolves around music. I’m that girl that you will always find with the concert t-shirt on and ear buds in. It is rare that you find me without some type of music playing in the background. I connect all of my life experiences to music. It truly has its own language in my heart. There is nothing more exciting than taking in all that a concert has to offer. I love to support local Canadian acts and attend as many shows that I can.
