Hundred Suns "Amaranthine" unleashed via Alternative Press
Posted 07.25.17Alternative Press! The band is donating a portion of profits from ‘Amaranthine’ to THORN, an organization that focuses primarily on preventing the sexual exploitation of children.
"’Amaranthine’ is one of our favorite songs," vocalist Cory Brandan (Norma Jean) tells Alternative Press.
"It switches between two different time signatures, and we experimented with a lot of dynamics. Chris and Legs have a very balanced writing and rhythmic chemistry on this track, which gave me a lot of room to be vocally versatile. I feel like the song has a very shadowy, almost ‘street’ vibe to it, matching its dark lyrical content, which was inspired by human trafficking — a very serious problem that deserves way more attention than it gets. At times it feels like the world is in a perpetual cycle, talking about the same topics over and over but trafficking is a real crisis taking place in all of our communities, cities and states. I had a conversation with a border agent, who that told me that they intervene to help young girls and boys almost every day."
Hundred Suns will be donating a portion of proceeds from sales of "Amaranthine" to THORN, which were founded in part by Ashton Kutcher.
"According to the U.S. State Department, 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year, which is an insane stat," Brandan adds. "But raising awareness is meaningless without action, so we’re donating a portion of profits."
"Those that want to join us in supporting this important cause can do so by downloading "Amaranthine" on iTunes. You can also visit wearethorn.org for more information.”
