Already Dead Releases New Single “Bread and Roses”

Already Dead has released a new single today entitled “Bread and Roses.” It’s a punk version of the classic 1912 hymn and poem dedicated to the women and children striking for better working conditions in the mill manufacturing city of Lawrence, Massachusetts. In the century since, it has existed as a sign of solidarity and strength with workers worldwide. The band’s latest album, My Collar Is Blue, was released last fall.

Bandmember Dan Cummings (who is also a Boston union pipefitter) had the following to say:

“It aligns with what I hope Already Dead projects as an ethos. And that’s standing up for yourself and for your fellow people and to fight for what is fair. In my opinion, there is evidence of that in all class struggles.”

Already Dead will perform the new single live at the annual Bread & Roses festival in Lawrence on Labor Day, September 4, alongside fest director and collaborator Felipe Collazo. Stream “Bread and Roses” below!
