Enter ShikariRou Reynolds, the frontman of the band, has criticised the government’s contribution to the climate crisis.
Despite staging the global climate conference COP26 in Glasgow to help improve climate change, Reynolds pointed out that the government’s proposed Cambo oil field project will cause serious harm to the environment.
“I think still the focus is making sure we point the finger where it should be pointed at the government and the fossil fuel industry,” he told BBC Sport.
“You know, we’ve got the government apparently looking at approving the Cambo oil field which would emit three million tonnes of carbon over its lifetime.

“So stuff like that, that’s what we use our platform for, to get real information out there and try and work towards stopping that.”
According to BBC NewsEnvironmental groups warned that the project could endanger hundreds of species and cause a climate crisis.
The UK government stated that an environmental assessment will be conducted in the area west of Shetland Islands.
It comes after Reynolds previously urged fans to take “personal action” to help tackle climate change, in the wake of a damning report which found that humanity’s damaging impact on the climate is now a “statement of fact”.

She recently headlined the UMA Entertainment Group’s special not-for-profit eventCOP26 featured panels, talks, and live music.
The singer explained how involving art in the conference “made sense” because “sometimes matters like the environment can get too political, so we need to inspire the emotional part”.
“I love Mother Earth, and for me it’s a very emotional case to be fought for our world and our environment,” she added. “She gives so much to us, and we just take and take and take. It’s so unbalanced and wrong. We’ve managed to taint something really beautiful with an ugliness.
