Today Maya announce their Winter 2021 tour of Mexico with support from Salvaje and Hollow at Night (presented by Seeds of Hate). The announcement comes following the release of their latest EP Despierta.
The band is going beyond sharing their distinct brand of hardcore by giving back to the communities that inspired it through charitable efforts for school supplies and resources for children in need throughout the tour:
“We are headed back to the motherland for the first time since 2012-2013. Mexico just has an energy that lights a flame in the air. The culture, the country, the food and most of all the people. Getting to be a part of the punk, metal, and hardcore community is huge for us. Most of our families have travelled into the US for more opportunities. Maya is headed back to Mexico because of the opportunities granted. Therefore, we have set up a GoFundMe for donations to a nonprofit organization that helps kids in need. Located in Guadalajara, Jalisco, MX – it is an education program to keep children out of the streets. Definitely something for the less fortunate. To be able to give back means everything to us, especially coming from the punk community. We are preparing for our CD release event in our hometown of San Jose, CA. Those attending the event can help the cause. ‘Back to school’ supplies are welcome.” – MAYA
Fans attending the band’s CD release in San Jose on August 28 are invited to bring school supplies, which will be donated to cities with support programs during the tour and the nonprofit organization, Jezreel Ministerio de Alcance. The organization holds close ties to the band and assists children in need with support through a Christian church group. Those unable to attend the show can donate via Maya’s GoFundMe link.
