[INDIE ROCK] X Ambassadors Keeps The Hope Alive With New Single Benefiting ACLU


“When it all feels broken
You got to keep your hope alive.”


As every moment slips away you lose something: your shoe, a race, a family timepiece, time itself. The great ordeal is followed by a test, which in turn is preceded by a stiff challenge. Overcome, we must, said a green alien in a galaxy far away. The mentor. Realize now, that we are all on the heroes journey – perhaps collectively, perhaps not.

America is approaching the the meat of the second Act – approaching it’s inner most cave and about to face it’s greatest ordeal.

“It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life.
Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.” ~Joseph Campbell

It’s during this time of uncertainty in which we need to hold on the strongest, speak up the loudest, and hope the hardest. It’s no secret that American ideals are under attack by the very people sworn to protect them, and it’s now, upon the cusp of our greatest challenge where we need to take our stand. Together, without fear.

'’Hoping’ is a song for everyone currently living in fear,” -Sam Harris (X Ambassadors lead singer)Click To Tweet

After a sold out performance at The Roxy in LA, benefiting Planned Parenthood, indie-rock troupe X Ambassadors have released “Hoping”. All proceeds generated from digital sales and streams of “Hoping” in the U.S. (for a period of six months) will benefit the ACLU, an organization the group have been extremely supportive of throughout their career.

“’Hoping’ is a song for everyone currently living in fear,” says X Ambassadors lead singer Sam Harris. “We proudly support the efforts of the ACLU, an organization which combats hatred and prejudice in this country. We will continue to fight against sexism, racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, homophobia, xenophobia, and the pervasive intolerance being encouraged under our current administration. As long as there are those of us who suffer and experience injustice in this world, we will continue to use our music and our voices to speak up. Our resistance is one of love and hope.”
