The Toronto-based act is fronted by two Iranian-born brothers whose family fled the country after the 1979 revolution. The new version of the song features the line, “Hey, Ayatollah, leave those kids alone!”
In a statement, Waters said that he believes Blurred Vision were playing a vital part in “the resistance to a regime that is both repressive and brutal.” Waters himself is touring the Pink Floyd album The Wall—which contains the original version of “Brick”—this fall.
