Toronto, ON-based band Mad Ones are back with a brand new video for their single, “In Silence”.
Lead singer, Andrew DeVillers states,
“It was “important to display a sense of fun in the video to counter what we were exploring in the song and that simple expressions of peace and unity are important if we are going to overcome the xenophobia and social othering that holds us back.”
On top of this release, the band will be hosting a benefit concert for humanitarian aid in Yemen at the Hard Luck Bar in Toronto. The show will feature other notable Toronto acts such as HotKid, Beams, Catl, Jerry Leger, Regina Gently and Noah Mintz. All proceeds will be donated to the International Rescue Committee.
“We are hosting a concert to raise money for humanitarian aid in Yemen, where two-thirds of the population is at risk of starvation. It is the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. All proceeds from the show will be donated to the International Rescue Committee (rescue.org). We are hoping to raise
amoney and bring awareness to a crisis which receives so little media coverage in North America,” says Mad Ones lead man Andrew DeVillers. The band has also released a video (shot by director Andrew Kalu) for their new single “In Silence” which speaks to the issues of gun violence – “It’s important to display a sense of fun in the video to counter what we were exploring in the song and bunch that simple expressionsof peace and unity are important if we are going to overcome the xenophobia and social othering that holds us back.”
