Chvrches Dedicate Song to Harambe at Reading Festival, and a Meme Dies

On the same day that Young Thug released a song called “Harambe,” Chvrches dedicated a song to the slain gorilla at a major festival. We are officially at Maximum Harambe Meme Capacity; something’s gotta give.

Watch above as Martin Doherty introduces the song “Under the Tide” at Reading Festival on Friday with “R.I.P. Harambe!” Props to Stereogum for the find, and to the crowd for embracing his unexpected words.

Check out Chvrches’ animated video for “Bury It,” featuring Hayley Williams of Paramore, below. Then watch the band discuss their recent album Every Open Eye below that:
