The Hind’s track "Rocksteady" was composed especially for the movie. January 2012 saw the group perform in Haiti for the first time. The track "Hold on 4 Haiti" was written as result of the earthquake and they have been instrumental in raising thousands of dollars for the relief effort with Partners in Health. Steel Pulse are currently working on a new album which will be released later this year and also a documentary of their long career which features live footage and interviews.
