Acrassicauda drummer Marwan Hussein recently spoke out about Donald Trump‘s travel ban with RollingStone.com, and now the band is not only using their voice to show support for those affected by the ban, but their music as well. Acrassicauda has just been confirmed to headline a benefit show here in Brooklyn that will help raise money for those affected by President Trump’s travel ban. Joining them at the Knitting Factory on February 26th will be Testament‘s Alex Skolnick, IKILLYA, Sun & Flesh, Robots and Monsters, Signals of Bedlam, plus some extra special guests throughout the night as well. Tickets for the benefit show are only $10, and they are on sale right now.
Here’s what IKILLYA‘s Jason Lekberg had to say on the addition of Acrassicauda to the show: “The guys in Acrassicauda have been friends for many years and when we heard they were looking for a way to help those affected by Trump’s travel ban, it was a no-brainer to add them to our show. It was already a killer lineup and we thank Paul, Rachel, Gideon and all at the Knitting Factory for helping us make this a night of metal to focus on what really makes American great again; compassion for our fellow humans and the celebration of diversity.”
