Goes Cube have released a new digital EP titled “What Ruckus: Loud Songs From 2005-2011“. The band had the following to say about it:

“We are very pleased to announce the release of an online-only EP called “What Ruckus: loud songs from 2005-2011.” The EP, released by The End Records, contains one track from each of our full-length albums as well as a handful of rare and previously unreleased tracks. ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS EP WILL BE DONATED TO THE BRADY CENTER, TO BENEFIT THE VICTIMS OF GUN VIOLENCE.

Gun violence is a very important issue to us, as the Goes Cube family has been directly affected by it. The recent tragedy in Aurora has only made it all the more pressing.
