Members of this Kyiv rock band are now fighting as soldiers

Like many Ukrainians, the members of a band called Antytila have picked up arms and are now fighting against the Russian invaders. They reached out to Ed Sheeran and asked him if they could perform remotely as part of his Concert for Ukraine, which is coming up in Birmingham on March 29.

How did they do that? Via TikTok, of course.

@antytila_official Hello @Ed Sheeran , greetings from Kyiv! 🇺🇦 We offer to make a live broadcast between Kyiv and Birmingham with Antytila temporary joining the gig remotely. #antytila #edsheeran #sheeran #ukraine #kyiv ♬ оригінальний звук – Antytila / Антитіла

Ed Sheeran responded. Read more here. Unfortunately, as fighting men, they aren’t going to be allowed to perform.
