The Morning Benders have put together an EP with the proceeds going to the Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund. Only two of the eight tracks are new (the rest are remixes), but the music sounds awesome. You can download the album on their website for a donation of $5, $15, $25, $40, $50, or $100
Singer and guitarist Chris Chu had this to say:
Last week we were scheduled to go to Tokyo to play our first show ever in Japan. It was going to be a very special trip for us, and for me in particular. I had always dreamt of going back to Japan to play music. Not many people know this, but I was actually born in Japan, and although I only lived there for a couple years, I’ve always had a deep love for the country and its people. I cannot express how sad and helpless I’ve felt reading about everything that is happening there right now, and even though we couldn’t be there, we wanted to do everything we could to help. We love you Japan.
Please give what you can. The music is great, and the cause is even greater.
