Here’s their manifesto:

In a politically challenging era, it’s our time to stand up against the machine. Brass Against’s first and foremost goal is to make exceptional music. Yet we would be remiss to not also note the unfortunately exceptional times we live in.

We want our music to not just sound inspiring; we want our music to resonate with people’s emotions and encourage action. We’re producing exceptional music with a political edge.

We are angry, we are inspired, we are ready for change—and we hope our music amplifies this energy in everyone who listens.
