The new band honors the memory of the dead with "Deportees"
In 1948, a plane carrying 28 passengers, mostly Mexican migrant workers, crashed near Fresno, Calif. Today, on Human Rights Day, indie band “The Last Internationale” offers a song in their memory, “Deportees.”
The band’s debut album, executive produced by Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello, will be released this coming spring.
