“London always responded raucously to what we do, perhaps because of its own class struggles” says frontman Eugene Hütz, “Punk and hardcore is like a cultural-
humanitarian corridor between all countries that deals with those issues, and a lot of it developed and grew muscles here. We are always excited to energise that corridor.”
“Since the beginning of invasion, London has been a very central place of support for
Ukraine’s Victory – not only with fundraising events, but with every tangible kind of
support to bring about Ukraine’s Victory as fast as possible,” he continues. “We
appreciate it tremendously. Much respect for that.”
Bearing witness as his homeland endured the heinous barrage of a violent and deadly invasion from Russia, Eugene recently joined forces with Les Claypool of Primus to collaborate on ‘Zelensky: The Man With the Iron Balls’ a joint release to rally support for the Ukrainian people. The track also features Stewart Copeland, Sean Lennon, Billy Strings, and fellow Gogol bandmate Sergey Ryabtsev. Proceeds from the sale of the single will be donated to Nova Ukraine, a nonprofit organisation dedicated to providing humanitarian aid to the people of Ukraine.
In addition, Eugene collaborated with NYC punk stalwart Jesse Malin for a cover of The Pogues’ classic ‘If I Should Fall From Grace With God’. Released exclusively via Bandcamp, all proceeds for this single will benefit the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation, which “supports the development of democracy, a free-market economy and human rights in Ukraine, and the strategic partnership between the U.S. and Ukraine.”
Furthering their support from the Solidaritine Tour, GOGOL BORDELLO have teamed up with Cauze, a modern Donor Advised Fund, who will collect proceeds from the tour to donate to Care.org’s Ukrainian Crisis Response. For more information, please visit their website – HERE
