We are excited and humbled to be announcing the release of “Digging Us a Hole.” This song was born during the “Funeral For Our Future” action in March, where we sang it together with over 100 activists in the TransCanada lobby in Westborough, MA. 25 of us kept singing as we were led out in handcuffs. We’re making the recording available for free throughout the “Fearless Summer” because this song truly belongs to everyone who’s fighting the pipeline!

Our greatest hope is that this song will continue to be used by those rising up against KXL. We’ll need all types of tools in our belt in order to build this movement big enough and strong enough to win, and the right song can be a powerful tool indeed. If it serves your work, please use the song in any actions or videos that you have coming up.
If you want to use our recording of “Digging Us a Hole” in your next video, just download the track for free, upload to youtube (or vimeo etc.) and be sure to post a link to our Twitter and/or Facebook. We’ll share and promote anything you put out that incorporates the song. And make sure to tag it with #DiggingUsAHole, so we see it!
We’ll be posting videos from fellow activists all summer long, but we wanted to start off with this first video that our friends Brian Fitzgerald and Sam McCracken made, which we think captures the spirit of the song, the action, and the movement as a whole.
This song is yours, use it for good!
Shot, directed, and edited by Brian Fitzgerald and Sam McCracken
