Eskimo Callboy have officially changed their name to Electric Callboy. The band decided to drop Eskimo from their moniker due to it being a derogatory term that was imposed on Inuit and Yupik people by non-Indigenous people. With this news, the group have also launched a new charity shirt featuring their new name to raise money for Ukraine.
The group commented:
Today we have big news for you!
Some of you that watched our last videos might have expected it already, but today is the day that we change our name!
From now on we are ELECTRIC CALLBOY!
Actually we recorded some more videos with lots of more information… but with the senseless violence that is happening to the people of the Ukraine at the moment, it just doesn’t feel right to push that topic any further. Still, we don’t wanna wait any longer with our name change with the knowledge we gained during our journey.
So here we go!
We hope you like our new name as much as we do!
But now, we need your attention to present you 2 charities, that are really important to us!
So please check out this new video and let’s use our energy for peace and solidarity!
Stay safe, We ❤️ You!

This news comes after the group previously announced that they would be removing some of their past music due to offensive lyrical content.
