As of Saturday, April 13, 'Thoughts and Prayers' can be found at RSD-participating record stores, but it is expected to sell out quickly, so if you are eager to obtain this, put in a request early with your local independent record store
Schoolkids Records have anounced the new 'Thoughts and Prayers' 7" single from David J, which will be released for Record Store Day. This will be issued on limited edition vinyl in a run of only 500 copies. This is the first great protest song of the year, exclusively for RSD 2019. David J Haskins, an achieved solo artist in his own right, is also co-founder of both Bauhaus and Love and Rockets and the man responsible for the lyrics of the Bauhaus classic 'Bela Lugosi's Dead'. "Thoughts and Prayers' is a scathing rebuke of the United States for it's inability to stop the senseless mass school shootings that are killing our nation's children," says David J, who bemoans the futility of "sending thoughts and prayers" to solve this tragic issue and also the inherent hypocrisy of the present government.
