The day after tomorrow is, of course, Bandcamp Friday, which means for that day, Bandcamp will forego its cut of all sales and 100 percent of the proceeds will go directly to the artists.
And Plague Dad’s got something special for you: a brand-new EP, featuring six tracks: five originals, and one cover of a tune called Sickness, by Ted Hawkins – who, if you haven’t heard of, you’d do well to check out.
The new release is cassette-only, but of course includes a download code so you can listen on your various digital devices.
The songs themselves were recorded at Sun Tiki Studios on Forest Ave. in Portland, Maine, and mastered by Dylan Ray down in Nashville, and they sound fucking awesome. If you’ve caught a live Plague Dad show, this tape has that high-energy, Grungefolk vibe. If you haven’t seen ’em live, you owe it to yourself to check it out.
The cassettes themselves are strictly limited to 100 units, hand-numbered, in white shell nested in a clear Norelco case. They include a lyric sheet, liner notes, a Plague Dad sticker, and there’ll probably be some other cool swag stuffed into the package, too.
You don’t wanna miss this one, folks, because when they’re gone, they’re gone.
