After seeing the incredible success of the single “Come Together (We Will Stop You)” over the past week – a cover song done in tribute by the super group Lifeline International to support the people of Ukraine, with 100% of proceeds going to UNICEF – music label COP International Records has now released a music video for the track as a thank you and to continue encouraging donations to help the victims of the ongoing war.

The video features appearances by musicians from around the world who contributed to the track, including bassist Bill Gould (Faith No More), guitarist Richard Kruspe (Rammstein), vocalist Chris Connelly (Ministry/Revolting Cocks/The Joy Thieves), vocalist Jeff Scheel (Gravity Kills), vocalist Lisa K (Basement Jaxx, The Crystal Method), drummer Matt Walker (ex-Filter, Morrissey, The Smashing Pumpkins), Julia Sania (from Ukrainian band The Hardkiss) and legendary producer John Fryer (Depeche Mode, Cocteau Twins, Nine Inch Nails).

“The contributors were spread all over the world, so watching the video was the first time I got a true sense of exactly how many people were involved with the song’s creation,” explains COP International Records founder Christian Petke who came up with the idea with producer John Fryer, inspired by the success of Live Aid in the ‘80s and wanting to replicate that humanitarian effort. “Seeing all of those people together on the same screen was truly an emotional experience for me.”

Adds video creator Greg Young, “I was excited to take on the challenge of creating this protest video from artists around the globe. I love how we can now collaborate long distance and ‘Come Together’ for a great cause.”

The day of its release, March 24, “Come Together (We Will Stop You)” was the best selling song in any format on Bandcamp. And after four straight days of retaining the top position, it still continues to hover near the very top of the sales charts on the music-selling website.

Petke and the team are moved by the success of the song, which has received international attention, but recognize that there is much more work to be done. “It’s becoming very clear that the war in Ukraine will not be ending any time soon,” he says. “It will take a sustained effort to help the people of Eastern Europe, so it’s important that we continue to raise money and send aid.”

It’s a sentiment shared by many of the song’s collaborators as well. Geno Lenardo (ex-Filter) says, “We all truly need to ‘Come Together’ to support Ukraine in every way we can. This song is an outreached hand to them. It lets them know that we are watching daily, and that we care. I hope everyone who hears it can give what they can! As it's been said, ‘We make a living by what we get. But we make a life by what we give.’”

And Bill Gould adds, “I’m happy that I was asked to be a part of this, and I hope it does some good.”

The full list of contributors on “Come Together (We Will Stop You)” is as follows:
John Fryer (Black Needle Noise)
Chris Connelly (solo artist/Ministry/Pigface/The Joy Thieves)
