Reverend And the Makers record riot inspired song

In light of recent events, Reverend and the Makers have recorded a new song ‘Riot’ which is available to watch on Youtube now.

Lead singer Jon McClure writes:

“I watched the events unfolding on the news the other night same as everyone else and was gutted to see the buildings on fire and people losing their businesses. the same way many of us have seen this coming for some time.

Watching the news put me in mind of an old unfinished track that we had worked on. This is that track. Its free, it’s not a money thing in any way but i feel it my job as an artist to talk about and react to what's happening in my own way. this isn't part of any forthcoming reverend album, its not gonna be a political record in the slightest but to keep schtum when there's rioting in the streets just ain't me. hope you enjoy”
