Today, punk rock collective The Crew release “One Voice,” a rousing punk rock anthem about unity. The Crew features legendary punk rockers, Fletcher Dragge & Byron McMackin of Pennywise, Mike Muir of Suicidal Tendencies, and Tim Armstrong & Matt Freeman of Rancid.
“Collaborating with Tim Armstrong, Mike Muir, And Matt Freeman has been an awesome experience, obviously Byron Mcmackin and I go way back. Byron and I had a demo of ‘One Voice’ laying around for couple years, and I thought it would be cool to bring a couple old friends on board to breath some new life into it,” explains Fletcher Dragge. “Watching these guys lay down their own personal trademark styles on this song was nothing short of amazing! I think it’s safe to safe we’re all pretty fucking stoked on the final product, and being able to donate proceeds to Musack feels pretty awesome as well. Find it, crank it up, and enjoy!”
The track is available on all streaming platforms via Epitaph Records. Stay Free Recordings will release the track on a 7” vinyl to benefit Musack, whose mission is to give kids and teens a voice through music by providing musical instruments and support for teachers. The vinyl will feature The Crew’s “Once Voice” on Side A, while Side B will feature an original song by some of Musack’s youth rockers; Rippy and the Sillyettes. Rippy and the Sillyettes are two young girls from the Navajo reservation, who wrote "One in A Million" about their friend who was murdered.
