Bush have premiered a new video for their new song “People At War,” via People. The clip was released for the U.N. Refugee Agency’s World Refugee Day, and it seeks to raise awareness about the hardships refugees face around the world.
Gavin Rossdale said the following:
“Having seen the footage of innocent refugees forced to flee their homes and lives, culminating in the picture of the young boy, Aylan Kurdi, lying dead on the shore –- the horror of that photograph, as a father, as a human being –- was too powerful to avoid. It was the catalyst to write this song and to show empathy with the plight of the refugees”
The band also started a #WithRefugees campaign and are urging fans to sign a petition asking world leaders to look for solutions to this global crisis.
