Malekh: A rare post I know! But we have something important to share. Acolyte has never been a political band and probably never will be so it's never been particularly relevant to reveal that I am a gay man. However, it recently became possible to become involved in a benefit compilation in aid of homosexuals facing persecution in Chechnya. We are very proud to be part of this and it has been amazing, both personally and as a band to see the incredible support this has received. Please consider having a look and contributing to this great cause by picking up this awesome compilation. Malekh x
