From Emmett Till to George Floyd, the debate over the value of human life has been ongoing throughout history. The Grammy-nominated viral R&B/Soul sensations known as The Hamiltones kick off Black History Month with a plea for humanity in the official music video for "My Life Matters". Directed by The Last American B-Boy, the video is now available to give a watch below.
"Equality is not conversed, it's exerted" -The Hamiltones
"My Life Matters" is from The Hamiltones' powerful new album '1964', which was released on the 57th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s iconic 'I Have A Dream' speech at the March on Washington, and the 65th anniversary of the high-profile death of Emmett Till. With a recording from Congressman John Lewis, '1964' serves as a timely tribute to the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S., while providing a moving soundtrack to the current global movement for racial justice and equality.
Available on all digital streaming platforms via Young Vintage/Dame Inc/Common Cents/EMPIRE, '1964' serves as The Hamiltones' full-length follow-up to 2019's 'Watch The Ton3s' EP and February's 'Watch The Ton3s (The B Side)' EP. The album will also serve as the official soundtrack for the Restore Black Wall Street 2021 campaign.
