Inter Arma Release Cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “March of the Pigs”
At a time when it seems like we’re learning about a lot of bands having very poor judgment (to put it mildly), it’s nice to hear a story about a band that has excellent judgment. I’m speaking specifically about Richmond’s Inter Arma. The band has a new covers album, the cheekily-titled Garbers Days Revisited, coming out next month, but they apparently delayed the release of the new single from that album — a reimagining of “March of the Pigs” by Nine Inch Nails — because, well… here, I’ll let them explain it:
“Hi. We released our cover of Nine Inch Nails’ ‘March of the Pigs’ this past Tuesday, but felt it would have been inappropriate to latch onto the outrage we’re all experiencing to promote a cover album, even if by happenstance. If you want to hear it, it’s out there. In the meantime, we suggest that you continue to fight against police brutality and institutionalized racism however you can. It’s working. If you’ve got the means, please consider giving a few or a lot of dollars to the Richmond Community Bail Fund and/or BEAM (Black Emotional And Mental Health). Links below. Black Lives Matter.
