Following the recent flooding of the Guernevill region of Northern California, Oakland's Kicker has issued a downloadable, pay-as-you-wish EP to raise funds for relief. Aptly titled Russian River Relief Fund EP, it contains two songs. All proceeds from the effort will go to the North Bay Disaster Relief Fundraiser and other issue-related casues.
In a prepared statement, the band says:
The Russian River rose to its highest level in twenty-four years, fifteen feet over flood stage. Roughly two-thousand homes and business were flooded/damaged, and hundreds of residents have been displaced.
Our singer Roadie and his wife Paula live less than a one-hundred 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.
Kicker features current and former mebers of Neurosis, Operation Ivy, and Dystopia and recently released Pure Drivel (Tankcrimes).
