X Ambassadors protest gun violence with new song, "Optimistic"

ABC/Paula LoboX Ambassadors have released a new song called "Optimistic," written in response to the recent mass shootings in Gilroy, California, Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas.

"We need to keep these conversations going," says frontman Sam Harris. "About gun violence prevention. About keeping families together. About protecting women's reproductive rights. The 24-hour news cycle is unrelenting, but it's important we stay vigilant and don't forget these injustices."

In addition to the new track, X Ambassadors are making a donation to the gun control organization Everytown for Gun Safety. You can download "Optimistic" now via digital outlets.

"Optimistic" follows the new X Ambassadors album Orion, which was released in June.
