Chicago’s The Ableist has released a new song entitled “Sucked Back into the Sun.” The track offers up hauntingly relevant lyrics and a psychedelic, but still heavy, tone to absorb in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Although the single’s applicable nature is purely coincidental (the song has been a crowd favorite since the band first started), the timeliness of it’s release is due to the band’s desire to provide mutual aid to the Coronavirus relief effort. The Ableist is currently offering the track for $1 or more on Bandcamp before the song is released on streaming services in hopes to raise funds from listeners to donate to Chicago’s Rogers Park Food Not Bombs. The organization is currently coordinating efforts to provide impacted individuals and families with groceries and precooked meals from both the organization and participating local restaurants.

The song also features Alice Kraynak (of Thee Casual Hex) on co-lead vocals and violin, as well as album art by Kit Snicket (the designer of the popular antifascist themed tarot deck “The Witches’ Insurrection.”
