As residents of Flint, Mich., the members of King 810 are likely more affected by the city’s water crisis than many of their peers, and as such, they’ve gone above and beyond to lend support in the ways they best know how. The latest method is by releasing a new song called “crow’s feet” via the Not Safe to Drink: Music for Flint Water Crisis Relief compilation with the funds going to aid the Flint Child Heath & Development Fund.
Earlier this year, the band released the song “We Gotta Help Ourselves,” calling attention to the crisis that has required government intervention. For those unaware, it was determined that many in Flint have been exposed to lead in their drinking water, which has affected many of the city’s children who are most vulnerable to the long term affects caused by the ingestion. In addition to the track, which incorporates some of the news report footage on the situation, the band has created a t-shirt with all funds also going to the Flint Child Health & Development Fund.

As for the Not Safe to Drink compilation, over 50 artists have contributed music to the collection, including such acts as Taking Back Sunday, Craig Owens, We Came as Romans and Anti-Flag among others.

King 810 released their first full length album with Roadrunner Records in summer of 2014. Memoirs of a Murderer arrived in August, led by the singles “Killem All” and “Fat Around the Heart.”
