Pussy Riot debuted a new protest track at the closing ceremony of British artist Banksy's Dismaland exhibit in Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, England. The activist group commented on the song and their reasons for participating:
Regardless of ones political views we have a moral duty to offer refuge to people fleeing war and persecution. We recognize the challenge faced by Europe in accepting hundreds of thousands of displaced people, but this is more than a political challenge - it is a humanitarian crisis and as such we must act together and rise to the challenge.

Today, we continue our Sonic Reducer series and focus on Fest 14! (Psst… we're sponsors!)
In the series, Punknews writers compress a band, genre, theme, or time period into a playlist that would fit on a single CD. Along with the playlist, you'll get either an overview of the topic, such as a band introduction, or a story about how the music in the playlist moved or changed the writer. This series is intended to be educational, giving you the listener an overview of a certain scene, but it's also intended to be rockin'.
