The latest video from Luz de Vida II – A Compilation to Benefit Homicide Survivors, a new album from Fort Lowell Records, Juarez have released their new video for the track “Ghosts in the Room.”
The album features artists spanning a variety of genres, and all of the proceeds from the record will go to Tucson’s Homicide Survivors Inc, a nonprofit organization that works to help meet the crisis and long-term needs of families of murder victims through support, advocacy, and assistance.
The Luz de Vida project began in the days following the January 8, 2011 shooting that took six lives and injured 19 others. Luz de Vida is Spanish for “Light of Life” and acts as an expression of community, love, healing, grace, and hope, a positive response from Tucson musicians and national artists.
Juarez was founded in 2007 in a Tucson dive bar by Dana Fehr and Michael Sanger, combining their love of metal, creative songwriting, and guitar riffs and eventually rounding up the missing links: Thomas Beach and Johnnie Munger. They disbanded in 2011, though the band are currently working on mixing and mastering tracks they recorded back in 2010, including “Ghosts in the Room.”
The album will be released on November 5, coinciding with the All Soul’s Procession, an annual community ceremony in celebration and mourning of the lives of our loved ones and ancestors.
