Recorded entirely in isolation and and tracked separately by participating musicians, members of Signals Midwest, Ratboys, Modern Baseball, Into it. Over It. and more have teamed up for a benefit track to benefit NIVA.

The song "Tying Airplanes to the Ground" was inspired by the late John Prine and it features Maxwell Stern (Signals Midwest, Timeshares) and several friends (full credits listed below).

"I wrote this song on April 8th, 2020, the day after John Prine died. I spent the whole day doing nothing but listening to his music," Stern says. "There's such incredible beauty and humor in his songs but there's also a definite darkness, a somber quality that can exist in that same space. I was wondering about what he might write for these current times, and then I tried to write my own personal version of that song."

NIVA is the National Independent Venue Association, an organization working to secure financial support for independent venues across America in response to closure during the pandemic. The single is released on Lauren Records.
