  • THE ROOP Releases New Song “Love Is All We Got”

  • Lithuanian pop rock band THE ROOP, consisting of Vaidotas Valiukevičius, Robertas Baranauskas and Mantas Banišauskas, released a new song “Love Is All We Got” along with a music video on March 11, 2022.
    The track was written by Mantas Banišauskas, Robertas Baranauskas and Vaidotas Valiukevičius. Produced by Laisvūnas Černovas and Vaidotas Valiukevičius.
    The video was directed by INDRĖ JUŠKUTĖ, who filmed it last October.
    The song is a band statement and support message for Ukrainian people. Because, their home country Lithuania has a history of Russia's regime aggression multiple times.
    Also, the song was released on very special occasion, which means March 11th is the day of Independence of Lithuania.
    Lithuania declared that it was an independent nation, the first of the Soviet republics to do so on March 11, 1990,
    The band announced that all proceeds from streaming this song on all platforms in 2022 will be used to support Ukraine.
  • THE ROOP said in a statemant, “We filmed the music video for “Love Is All We Got” at the end of October 2021. We, Lithuanians, have a painful collective memory and it kept whispering that the tension and disturbance in the world was rising. But not even in the worst nightmare could we dream of a war starting in it's roughest form. While editing the video now we added additional images of people gatherings, support and protest activities from Lithuania and around the world. It is important for Ukrainian people to see us all who see, feel and support.

    Blooming flowers symbolise hope and desire for peace. After all, flowers can break through concrete - such a superpower of life lies within the spirit of Ukrainians while fighting the invader. The dominating green color in the music video encodes revival, birth, and also prompts to stride forth and commit actions firmly.

    Looking back at Lithuanian history, we remember experiencing Russia's regime aggression multiple times. We were being occupied, exiled, killed. Each family has living memories of it. So how did we survive? We are guessing it was because of love. Because of big love for our families, children, mothers, fathers, and our country. Our nation like no other deeply understands and supports Ukraine. Putin's war against Ukraine is a war against humanity. We wish for it to end.

    We express enormous support for Ukrainian band “Go_A”, with whom we established a warm friendship in Rotterdam, during “Eurovision”. We were discussing a collaboration and “Love Is All We Got” was one of the options. However, our intentions and plans were terminated by Russia's invasion into Ukraine. “Go_A” recently wrote that they temporarily pause their music activity because of the war. All members of the band remained in their homeland. We want to believe the war ends as soon as possible, and we can write music and make the collaboration happen.

    We admire people's consolidation in Ukraine's exhausting fight against the aggressor. Each contributes as much as they can and comprehends at a time. We, as THE ROOP, support Ukraine by financial donations, and we gave away all of our remaining merchandise - warm sweatshirts for adults and children. In addition, we constantly share relevant information on social media. Now we decided to contribute using our primary work - music. All of the funds collected for streaming of this song on all platforms in 2022 will be used to support Ukraine. Music can contribute to the idea of a better world, and spread beyond borders and nations.”
