The Dutch punk band Ink Bomb is selling a cover song for charity: “Broken” by Bad Cop/Bad Cop. The Nijmegen foursome are donating all proceeds to their local food bank.
Front person Joost Hoedemaeckers explains. “Via the Food Bank Nijmegen Overbetuwe donations are going towards the people who need them the most. On one end you see more and more people turning towards the food bank because, for example, their income has evaporated. On the other hand you see supermarkets dealing with less surplus food that can be donated to food banks. More money is needed to be able to keep offering people complete food packages.”
“Also, all our previous plans were suddenly gone,” elaborates bass player Arina Banga. “Shows were cancelled, rehearsels were scrapped. This project was also a way to keep busy as a band.”
