Thee Deadcoats "Putin Lights Up The Fires" (Pussy Riot Cover)

Thee Deadcoats "Putin Lights Up The Fires" (Pussy Riot Cover)
…And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead and the Coathangers are teaming up for some tour dates next week, and to celebrate, they've also joined forces in the studio as the supergroup Thee Deadcoats. The band have recorded a cover of still-imprisoned Russian political punkers Pussy Riot's "Putin Lights Up the Fires."

The group's straight-ahead, distorted take on the punky tune is being offered up at a pay-what-you-want price point, with proceeds being split in half to help pay for Pussy Riot's legal defence fund and to the assist the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief.

You can sample it down below and get charitable over at Thee Deadcoats' Bandcamp page. A purchase will also nab you a remix from Hercules and Love Affair contributor Whitney Fierce.

Trail of Dead and the Coathangers hit Toronto's Lee's Palace November 20.
