Constantines share new song ‘Call Me Out’

In support of Black Lives Matter and Unist'ot'en Camp Legal Fund for Land Defenders

One of Canada’s most-celebrated indie rock outfits have returned with their first new piece of music since 2014. The Guelph-bred rockers have released “Call Me Out,” a song written in 2017, calling it “an owning of our privilege and responsibilities.”

The song will only be available through Bandcamp, and all proceeds from its sale will be donated to Black Lives Matter Toronto and Unist’ot’en Camp Legal Fund for Land Defenders.

Check out “Call Me Out” below.

“‘Call Me Out’ was written in 2017. It’s an acknowledgement of the need for open listening, active learning, inward study and accountability towards personal and social change. It’s an owning of our privilege and responsibilities,” the band wrote in a message shared with the song.

“We’re not looking to take up a lot of space with this release, but thought it might do some good to put it out now, rather than hiding it away any longer. It won’t be available on spotify, applemusic, etc, or as a physical release. Please don’t post it on youtube. The purpose of this release is to raise money for the folks mentioned above.”

Constantines reunited in 2017 for appearances at Wayhome Music Festival and Kazoo!Fest. The band also played a pair of shows at the Horseshoe Tavern in December of 2017 as part of the venue’s 70th anniversary.
