Published Mar 18, 2010Kind-hearted political punk rockers Propagandhi have at long last unveiled the release details of their upcoming digital EP, a short but sweet collection of rarities, with proceeds benefiting reconstruction efforts in Haiti through Partners in Health.
Dubbed The Recovered EP, the release will be available on April 6, and according to the band, "Accompanying the release is a 19-page digital booklet in which [singer/guitarist] Chris [Hannah] drones on endlessly about recording techniques or some shit. All net proceeds benefit the Partners In Health organization, so quit whining about the fact that it's only 8.5 minutes long and plunk down your cash." That's the cover up there above.
As we told you last month, the EP will feature three previously unreleased songs, reaching as far back as 1993's How To Clean Everything and 1996's Less Talk, More Rock. Former Propagandhi member and current Weakerthans front-man John. K. Samson makes an appearance on the EP, lending vocals to "Leg-Hold Trap."
Speaking of the EP's charitable nature, Hannah told Exclaim!: "People should keep in mind that as the world's attention to the earthquake decreases, Haiti will still face the incredible challenge of rebuilding their impoverished, fragmented cities, while very likely having to fend off political and economic interference from the usual suspects: Canada, U.S.A., and France."
