Deathcore act Carcosa, who are from Vancouver, BC, have released a new music video that illuminates some of the injustices done to the Indigenous Peoples of Canada. The video pertains to the band’s song “Restless.” Along with this new video, the band have also released a new merch drop and have shared that the proceeds from this merch drop will be donated to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society.
Per a statement from Carcosa vocalist Johnny Ciardullo:
“‘Restless’ is our attempt to signal boost serious subject matter that we hold very close to our hearts. The Indigenous People of Canada have been facing injustices and ridicule since we encroached on their land hundreds of years ago. With the recent & ongoing discoveries being unearthed at residential school sites across Canada, we wanted to speak up, show our support and stand in solidarity with our First Nations people. This song is a stark reminder that these atrocities happened and the fallout will not just dissipate. We haven’t forgotten.
“To do this right, we worked exclusively with Indigenous music video directors & editors to allow them to tell their story and speak their truths. We are here to scream alongside them as they seek answers and accountability. We want to give a huge shout-out and thank you to Á’a:líya Warbus and her team at Salish Legends Media for doing this with us and telling their narrative through this gorgeously shot video. Net profits (after production and shipping costs) made from the ‘Restless’ merch drop will be donated to Indian Residential School Survivors Society.”

This is an incredibly wonderful gesture from the band; the guys in Carcosa are super cool dudes and even worked with us in the past as part of an X-Mas charity. At the time of this writing, the band’s latest release is their 2021 album Anthology.
