Controversial punk rock band Pussy Riot is back with a new video that slams the governments that are turning their backs on refugees.

The Russian female punk rock band, Pussy Riot, has been at the center of many controversies over the years. They are a no holds barred, outspoken, no cares given group that speaks out against injustice and corruption.

Remaining true to their nature, they've released a radical new music video for their pro-refugee track, “Refugees In.” The video includes footage from their first legal, organized concert at Banksy’s Dismaland in September.

The new song takes a stand against European governments, accusing them of worsening the tensions in Europe by closing their borders to refugees.

"Governments here should feel the shame/ F***ing liars, you're to blame," they sing over a hard-hitting electronic beat with a chorus that repeats, "Refugees In, Nazi's Out."

The group actually wrote the song in just two days following recent press coverage of the many deaths and obstacles refugees were experiencing along their journeys to asylum, Mic reports.

The video’s release couldn’t have come at a better time, less than a week after the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris, France that now has several countries casting away refugees in fear of welcoming terrorists posing as distressed asylum seekers.  

"We had no doubts that the main topic of our event should be a pro-refugee, pro-free-traveling, multiculturalist agenda," Pussy Riot member Nadya Tolokonnikova reportedly told Noisey.

"We cannot and must not turn our backs on these people. We cannot allow our elected representatives to place a monetary value on human lives. Ethics and not economics should be our guiding principle."

"If Europe closes the borders, hundreds of thousands of Muslims putting on the line everything they have to escape radical Muslim state will never be able to see another world," Tolokonnikova told Noisey in reference to Paris, the video and the ongoing fallout from Syria. "Some of them will join that very ISIS, being embittered and disappointed in the good will of European states.”

“If we want to attract Middle Eastern people with our Western values there is no other way but to accept them. Accept and save those who flee the country occupied by terrorists, those who run to Europe as to some promised land."
