UPDATE: We raised $600 for North Bay Donate - thank you all, we'll keep forwarding along any additional donations we receive.
As many of you have probably seen on the news, there was a huge flood last week in the Guerneville region of Northern California. The Russian river rose to it’s highest level in 24 years, 15 feet over flood stage. Roughly 2,000 homes and business were flooded/damaged and hundred of residents have been displaced.
Our singer Roadie and his wife Paula live less than a 100 yards from this river in the small town of Monte Rio. Thankfully their home was on higher ground and escaped damage. However many of our friends and their neighbors have suffered some serious loses and damages from this flood.
We decided to release a benefit, pay as you want download EP, with hopes of raising some money to help those affected by the flood. In keeping with the spirit of this region, this EP features a revised version of the track "Monte Rio" from our brand new LP. This version is a different mix from the record and for the first time in Kicker history, has curse-free (censored) lyrics that can be played on the radio, prompted by our favorite local DJ Jesse Luscious at the almighty KALX in Berkeley. Included with this EP is an unreleased track from our last session entitled "Shit Box" which obviously is NOT radio friendly…
All proceeds of this release will go to the North Bay Donate - Disaster Relief Fundraiser. Please help spread the word and donate whatever you can to help.
Thanks and up the punks!
