The Human Rights
W/ DJ Friendlyness (Big Sugar)
modern roots reggae innovators The Human Rights are proud to announce their 2016 Spring Tour which will take place from mid-March to late May. The tour will be in support of their second full-length album, simply entitled The Human Rights, and a groundbreaking social justice initiative spearheaded by the band.
"The Human Rights are looking forward to the opportunity to do our thing on this Spring tour, which is to bring real Roots Reggae music to the people" says Friendlyness, who is also well-known across Canada as a member of Canadian rock reggae pioneers Big Sugar.“We feel very blessed and are very happy with the new album, and proud of the work it represents. We've wanted to do what we can to help the world situation through music, and we are excited to support the IDRF through ReggaeForRefugees.”
The Human Rights are raising money to make the tour possible through a crowdfund campaign launching Thursday, December 17th. 10% of all donations to the fund will benefit ReggaeForRefugees, a reggae music movement founded by Friendlyness to make a real contribution to helping people all over the world who are who are suffering from displacement and underdevelopment due to conflicts and other social issues. The Human Rights are donating a portion of monies earned from reggae music to the International Development and Relief Foundation. www.thehumanrights.ca/r4r
