Erika M. Anderson shares new track referencing recent mass shootings in the US alongside disturbing video depicting the simulation of a high school shooting

EMA has responded to the ongoing string of mass shootings in the US with a new track and video, entitled ‘Active Shooter’ - you can watch it above.

The video, which some may find triggering, features footage from the Mount Pleasant, Texas Police Department’s training video on mass shootings, and simulates an incident at a middle school, which is where the video was filmed. The track also contains a sample from President Obama’s recent speech in Oregon following the shootings at Umpqua Community College.
