Third Eye Blind and frontman Stephan Jenkins recently trolled conservative concertgoers at a charity event in Cleveland during the Republican National Convention, speaking in favor of liberal causes and at one point yelling from the stage, “Raise your hand if you believe in science!” Now, the alt-rockers are doubling down with a financial overture to the Democratic Party.

Third Eye Blind announced Monday they are selling “Raise your hand if you believe in science!” T-shirts, and will donate all proceeds to the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who made a point of saying “I believe in science!” during her acceptance speech at the DNC. The shirts, which cost $25, will only available through Aug. 9.

At the Musicians On Call event held during the week of the Republican National Convention, Jenkins also spoke out in support of LGBT rights. The band later replied on Twitter to a user asking if they were concerned about negatively affecting the charity. “We were not, as musicians on call were well aware of who we are and our take on things (like science and rights!),” they replied.
