Official press release:

Veteran Chicago punk band Racetraitor has signed with Good Fight Music with plans to release an all-new LP this fall. The band is also re-releasing Burn the Idol of the White Messiah both digitally and on vinyl with three additional tracks not found on the original version.

Racetraitor has released a music video for "BLK XMAS" today exclusively via Revolver Magazine. Directed by the band with animation and visual effects by Ashref Lassoued, this is the first bit of music the band has released in over a year.

"BLK XMAS is really about how absurd it is that people, like the Fox News crowd, try to insist that Jesus or even fictional characters like Santa Clause are white," says vocalist Mani Mostofi. "On one hand it is totally absurd and laughable but on the other hand, it goes hand and glove with the type of racist and xenophobic sense of cultural purity that gives rise to something like Trump.

"Whether it is 'Fear of a Black Planet' or 'Fear of a Spanish speaking America,' it's all propaganda designed to get white people to follow a political line that barely benefits most of them beyond a false sense of superiority."

Drummer Andrew Hurley comments, "With all that is going on in the world, we are trying to make a record that pulls no punches in the music or the message. We want to inspire punks, hardcore kids, and metalheads and maybe piss off a few racists along the way."

"BLK XMAS" is available on all streaming services today and as an iTunes instant grat track. All pre-orders are available today as well.

Racetraitor will release 2042 on October 12, 2018, via Good Fight Music. This will only be the band's second official full length in 20 years, with the first being the release of now cult classic Burn The Idol of the White Messiah in 1998.

Mostofi continues, "the name of the record refers to the date the US is predicted to become a majority-minority country. '2042' explores different sides of the racist fear and the far right attack on the concept of a majority-minority America. It hits on everything from Trump, the far right media, to xenophobia and Islamophobia."

2042 features the full lineup that recorded Burn The Idol of the White Messiah, (Mani Mostofi, R. Brent Decker, Dan Binaei and Andy Hurley of Fall Out Boy and Sect). It also includes the addition of Andrea Black from the now defunct metal act Howl.

2042 track listing:

01. Three Minutes of Hate
02. The Lion and the Lamb
03. Black Xmas
04. By the Time I Get to Pennsylvania...
05. Aylanoor
06. Cataclysm
07. The Cult of Eschatology
08. Unhinged
09. The Universal Corrective Map...
10. Rooz Va Aftab

Claus, not Clause, and Santa Claus is based out of "white" origins - German, British, and Dutch. So, basically stopped reading at this point, because these asshats are retarded.

Racetraitor was never a punk band. They were always a shitty metalcore band. Facts.

So these hipster cucks are trying to be cool to be racist against their OWN race??What a terrible gimmick to try and sell more merch and ticket sales. Go and open up a vegan food truck that only serves to minorities instead.

The the US is expected to become a majority-minority country? Impossible. At that time there will still be a majority and there will still be minorities, but a minority cannot be a majority, and thus a majority-minority condition cannot exist. Go shove another falafel up your ass.

This band is probably OK with small children at Gay Pride Parades and Drag Queens teaching pre-school. Song sucks by the way, sounds like warm diarhea being shaken up in a gallon sized ziplock bag by a Parkinson's patient.

"Veteran hardcore band" is polite terminology for "older and out of shape."

I love the responses from the morons who think this is a new band or "new gimmick" and aren't aware they were doing this 20 years ago.

"it goes hand and glove..."

The expression is "hand in glove." Christ, you can't even get that right and yet you want people to take your politics seriously.

The singer dude is Arab, I believe, and has worked for the past decade for at least one NGO trying to push for "democracy" in Iran. I wouldn't be shocked if those organizations, or this band for that matter, are Hasbara/Mossad linked ops.

This band is heavily influenced by Noel Ignatiev, who is a vicious anti-White, Talmudic racist.

Make no mistake, this band resurfaced at a time when manufactured racial division is in full-swing to cheer-lead the overtaking of civilized countries by third-world peoples. It's not a coincidence.

Good Fight is what Ferret became after Carl and Paul absolutely sunk the label into a deep grave. LOL those two try hards would sign a band called Racetraitor cuz that's the exact edgy shit that they think makes them superior to other whites. Total Scum

Dude(s) who are millionaires, banking on their white privilege, but also hang with free-loading krust punk dorks are stoked.

Also, Racetraitor are 40 somethings who still think not having a real job is cool.

Also, vegan cyclists are stoked.

Also, eat at Blackbird in Philly. Real cheese on a vegan pie.

Also, also.

absolute atrocity what this fcking band stood for their whole entire worthless musical 'career' (LOL).

Can't wait for democrat supporters watch in aghst while the criminal Clinton empire turn our country into the next Zimbabwe and South Africa for the sole benefit of their own corrupt posse.

Isn't that a whole new problem of its own you shitbrick. When you're in high school and post secondary in your early twenties you are disillusioned with how the world actually is so you actually buy into ideological crap without thinking with your head. Now in your 40's if you still believe this atrocious marxist drivel then you need to get carbombed in palestine dumbfck

Does this band still call the audience crackers? Maybe we'll all be referred to as such again in the liner notes since they cater moreso to white SJWs than actual racial minorities
