"We have named our mission | Praying, not condemning | Blood relations are craving witness | Liberation from this nation's sickness | We will win with no malice and no militias," MC Stephen "Brer Rabbit" Brackett sings on Flobots' single, "Pray."

Members of the Flobots have been spreading reform love for more than a decade by way of marching, community outreach, campaigning, social change, anti-war anthems and a nonprofit for at-risk youth.

And though they've been peaceful activists since before the Trump regime, before #Occupy and before #BlackLivesMatter, it's the forward momentum of these movements that has kept the Denver group singing strong.

Flobots continue the crusade with a collection of protest songs on its crowd-funded album, "NoEnemies," set for release on Friday.

James "Johnny 5" Lurie told the Camera in an October interview that before the band's mentor, Vincent Harding (speechwriter, friend and associate of Martin Luther King Jr.) died in 2014, he challenged the band: "Where are the songs for today's movements? In the Southern Freedom Movement, we were a singing movement. Are you a singing movement today? If not, how can you become one?"

"That's a critical piece of technology, the song," said Laurie in last year's interview. "The ability to sing songs together, to sustain yourselves in moments when you're being tested and to be able to conjure up a moral force together. As a band, we spent the last couple of years looking at that. What are the songs we would sing if push came to shove in a street protest? What are the songs we can write together? What are the songs we can research and learn?"

Thus, the birth of "NoEnemies," an album funded by a Kickstarter campaign that surpassed more than $31,000 over its goal of $50,000.
