    I wanted to make this thread specifically to talk about how great these cover songs are, from a Swedish telethon during the US election night

    "Today is the International Women's Day and the theme of the year is #BeBoldForChange. “You Are the Problem Here” isn't a typical First Aid Kit-song. It's angry and direct. It's a song written out of despair. After reading about yet another rape case where the perpetrator was handed a sentence which did not at all reflect the severity of his crime we felt upset and vengeful. We were, and are, sick of living in a society where the victims of rape are often blamed for the horrible thing that has been done to them. Our message is clear and should not be controversial in the least: if you rape, you are the problem. Alcohol is not the problem. So called “youth culture” is not the problem. You are. And you always have a choice.

    A portion of proceeds will be donated to @WomenforWomen International - an amazing organization we’re honored to support."

    I remember an interview a little while ago that they were working on a new album most likely out this year. I hope that ends up being true.

    They've got a cover of Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill on Spotify.
