Massive Attack, Fontaines D.C. and Young Fathers have joined forces for a limited-edition benefit EP entitled Ceasefire, with 100 percent of proceeds supporting the emergency operations of Doctors Without Borders in Gaza and the West Bank.

Now available for pre-order digitally and on 12-inch vinyl, the collection features material from all three bands and artwork designed by Massive Attack's 3D.

"The hourly scenes of horror in Gaza, with hospitals and schools bombed to dust and innocent civilians, journalists and doctors killed in unspeakable numbers has been made so much worse by more than ten weeks of abject political failure," 3D said in a statement. "We're in awe of the Doctors Without Borders medics who place their lives on the line to help innocent civilians in Gaza. The Ceasefire EP is a tribute to them, and their incredible ongoing work in truly indescribable circumstances. We stand in solidarity with the people of Palestine."

Fontaines D.C. added, "Fontaines D.C. join millions across the world in demanding an immediate ceasefire and a permanent end to Israel's brutal occupation of Palestine." The Irish post-punks continued:

Since October, Doctors Without Borders have been on the ground in Gaza, where every human is an IDF target, risking their lives to give vital care to the thousands injured by Israel's indiscriminate attacks on the starving and defenceless. We feel utterly helpless in what we can do at this point however we do hope our small contribution to this record can raise some desperately needed funds for Doctors Without Borders in Gaza. Ceasefire Now. Free Palestine.

The Ceasefire EP will be released on March 1, 2024.
