Written and recorded last year, Dispatch’s new single “Dear Congress (17)” has only gotten more relevant following last week’s tragic school shooting in Parkland, Fla.

According to an official statement by the band, the song, which you can listen to below, is “written from the perspective of someone who just buried their loved one” and exposes “the personal side of observing Washington throw empty condolences to grieving families while accepting NRA Campaign money.”

All proceeds from the song will be donated to The Brady Campaign, a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing gun violence in America.

Dispatch just announced an extensive summer tour.
