Over the summer, Australian rockers Atlas Genius released “63 Days,” their latest single, via Caroline, and then the duo embarked on a massive American tour. That tour arrives in DC on Monday, Oct. 16 for a show at the Historic Synagogue at Sixth & I.
A few weeks ago, Atlas Genius took “63 Days” to a television performance on Conan. There, they explained the song is about an accidental heartbreak and that it took on a deeper meaning.
With the song, brothers Keith and Michael Jeffery realized the same forces that separate two people are the same forces that can create a rift around the world. “The layers of ignorance that we acquire through our misconceptions, miscommunications, and misunderstandings — whether they be gender, sexual, racial, or political — can leave us covered and unrecognizable in gook, and we don’t even realize it,” said a press release about “63 Days.”

And so the band launched a social media campaign called #63DaysOfLove.
63 DAYS of lending a helping hand to anyone who needs it.
63 DAYS of connecting with your friends, family, loved ones, neighbors and total strangers.
63 DAYS of getting involved with charities or organizations both local and global.
63 DAYS of reaching out to those in need.
Through the song, the band invites fans to join them in a 63-day commitment to spreading compassion and kindness. For more information, and to view a PSA video of Keith + Michael discussing the campaign, visit http://www.atlasgenius.com/63daysoflove.
