The Muslims Sign To Epitaph Records & Release New Single ‘Fuck These Fuckin Fascists’

The Muslims formed in 2017, brought together by the aftermath of the 2016 election. They have since released three albums The Muslims (2018), Mayo Supreme (2019), Gentrified Chicken (2020) and the Inshallah: Tomorrow We Inherit The Earth EP (2020). The all-queer, black & brown Muslim punk band unapologetically use music as a vessel to call out racism, the American political landscape and white supremacy. The Muslims have a lot to say and they aren’t afraid of hurting any feelings in the process. 

Epitaph Records have welcomed The Muslims to the label and have now shared their new single, Fuck These Fuckin Fascists. Taking inspiration from classic punk and afropunk roots, the Durham, NC trio mix hardcore, rock-rap fusion, political satire & shared experiences as multi-racial Muslims into a powerful and spiritual deliverance. With their sharp lyrics, gut-wrenching rhythms and offensive satire, the queer POC punk band is ready to convert everyday citizens into cultish Munks.

“I started writing this song during Donald Trump’s first impeachment trial and finished it during the attempted coup. What a time to be alive. As a person who fits the description of a so-called ‘Black Identity Extremist,’ I find it funny that our music and message, calling out racist violence, makes people more uncomfortable than actual racist violence. At least we’re cute, tender, and funny af. Artists are the truth-tellers throughout history, and we’re just speaking our truth. Fascism was never wiped out, it just got more polite and calls itself a Richard Spencer now, whatever that is. We’re going to speak truth to power and have a damn good time doing it. I hope our fans (aka Munks) get some coded message about destroying capitalism and the patriarchy, but only if they play it backwards. I hope this song inspires the next Munk to be themselves: to mosh in the mirror, cuss out racists, steal plant clippings from government buildings, and support their local Co-ops.” (vocalist QADR)
