Spain Will No Longer Fly With United Airlines (Statement)

10 April 2017 Los Angeles

 

In the news today we have seen disturbing images and video footage depicting the violent, forced ejection of a passenger from a United Airlines flight. This passenger had done nothing wrong, and did nothing to deserve such treatment.

 

As a band that travels frequently, we in the band Spain cannot tolerate such behavior from an airline that is supposed to garner our trust. We will no longer be flying with United. Our tour rider will be amended to state as such.

 

We wish the victim of United Airlines’ brutal and completely unnecessary tactics well and wish him a speedy recovery. We hope he will receive just compensation from the airline. We also hope the people who are in charge of the airline do the right thing and apologize to the passenger who was abused, to the passengers (including small children) of the flight who had to witness the assault in person, and to all people everywhere who were emotionally affected by the footage.

 

Sincerely,

 

Josh Haden

Two New Live Show Recordings Uploaded

I just uploaded two new live shows to the Spain subscription page.

As I said in the accompanying message, regarding the Spain tour in Europe earlier this month, for the first time the band's performing without a set list, letting the mood determine what we play and deciding songs on the fly. We played four shows and never played the same set twice. It opens possiblities which couldn't exist if we were playing the same set every night like zombies. 

These live shows are essential listening at least for me as I'm starting to put the new album together. They are for subscribers only...if you're interested in Spain and in the new album please think about starting a subscription, it's not that expensive and helps us more than buying something from iTunes or God forbid listening to our songs on Spotify. - Josh
