Based in the Capital metro of Washington, D.C., three-piece Han Gan returns with The Time Past EP, a follow-up to 2018 full-length The City of Magnificent Intentions. This group, made up of veteran players from the hardcore and punk scene, matches their hard-hitting instrumental parts with thought-provoking lyrics reflecting the crazy world we find ourselves in in 2020.
Commenting on the album, the band says: "The music and the first draft of the lyrics for The Time Past were written a few months before the COVID-19 outbreak and the murder of George Floyd, but what we had written portended to us a major shift. A lot of people could feel something was coming, and The Time Past is our document of that feeling."
Recorded and mixed remotely, the album drops tomorrow, July 1st, with all proceeds from streaming, digital sales, and physical copies (limited-edition cassette and compact discs) going to the Community Justice Exchange’s emergency response fund supporting BLM protesters and immigrant detainees. Check out the premiere of the album's title track below, and consider supporting this release and the worthy cause it benefits.
