Mr. Bungle To Release ‘New’ Track This Week As Part Of Bandcamp’s Benefit Release Plans


0

As they have done in the past, this Friday, June 05th, will see music retailer Bandcamp.com once again waive their revenue share for all sales made via their platform. While the service initially partook in this gesture to benefit artists struggling amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the ongoing tensions across America have seen some of the artists/labels involved instead opt to donate their profits to causes related to racial justice and change.

Additionally, Friday, June 19th, will find Bandcamp donating 100% of their revenue share to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

As for this Friday’s coming event, a ‘new’ track from Mr. Bungle is among the scheduled releases. That band entered the studio earlier this year to re-record their 1986 demo, “The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny“, along with a number of covers and rarities from that era. Others lining up benefit releases for this week include:

  • Brutal Panda: Releasing charity comp featuring Moon Destroys, Ruby the Hatchet, Kowloon Walled City and many more, with proceeds being donated to Campaign Zero.
  • Dark Descent: Donating 25% of all sales to The Place, an outreach program for homeless young people.
  • Ghoul: Donating 100% of sales to The Bail Project.
  • Gilead Media: Releasing exclusive Cavernlight cover of “The Black Crow” by Songs:Ohia.
  • Hassle Records: Sharing 100% of digital revenue with artists; releasing limited edition rarities from The Used, Lonely The Brave, and Frank Iero.
  • Magnetic Eye: Sharing 100% of digital revenue with artist
  • Monolord: Releasing exclusive instrumental remix of the band’s 2014 album Vaenir.
  • Mr. Bungle: Giving 100% of proceeds from new track & new T-Shirt style to Musicares Covid-19 Relief Fund.
  • Sacred Bones Records: Donating 100% of all digital sales split between The Loveland Foundation and a nationwide bail fund that splits donations among community bail funds.
  • Thrill Jockey: Releasing several LPs at a reduced price, with proceeds going to anti-racism charities; releasing a handful of limited-edition color LPs that were unearthed during a recent warehouse clearout.
