Our Last Night raises funds for victims of Paris terror attacks

New Hampshire post hardcore group Our Last Night is releasing a limited edition t-shirt to raise funds for the victims of the Paris terrorist acts which took place a week ago today.  Proceeds from the sale of the shirt, which reads “We need to break the cycle of hate,” will benefit the French Red Cross.  The message comes from the lyrics of Our Last Night’s single, “A World Divided” off their latest record, Younger Dreams.

The band expanded on what the song means to them and how it relates to the recent attacks:

“When we wrote “A World Divided” we wanted to shed light on how important it is to accept and understand each other. For some reason it has turned into a common human instinct to feel hatred toward an idea we don’t understand. We feel that this lack of perspective is the root of most problems in our world. It saddens us deeply that an amazing city such as Paris has been the most recent target of this ignorant hatred. Paris has shown us so much love every time we’ve ever played there and we will help them in any way we possibly can. All of our thoughts are with those people in Paris, and anyone around the world that was affected by this tragedy. We love you. “
