Unreleased Double Album by Late Women Guitarist Chris Reimer Set for Release
The project is currently raising funds via a new auction
Published Dec 12, 2017While Women guitarist Chris Reimer may be gone, the Calgary musician definitely hasn't been forgotten. Following his sudden and tragic passing in 2012, he's been treated to an array of tributes over the years. And now a new posthumous double album of his unreleased music is set to arrive next year thanks to his friends and family.
The project is in its early stages, but as Pitchfork reports, a T-shirt from Reimer's personal collection is being auctioned off to help raise funds for the release. The shirt was never worn by Reimer, but it features an image of Women's final album, 2010's much-loved Public Strain.
You can place a bid on the shirt here.
As of yet, there is no firm release date for the as-yet-untitled double album, but it is expected out in 2018.
All the album's proceeds will eventually go towards the Chris Reimer Legacy Fund.
Following Reimer's passing, he was the subject of the animated tribute film Dude, That's Insane. Also, his record The Chad Tape was posthumously released in 2012.
