Today, Hand Habits has announced a new EP featuring covers of their song "wildfire" performed by Angel Olsen, Lomelda, Kacey Johansing, Tara Jane O'Neil and John Andrews & The Yawns - as well as the original. "wildfire," a song written during the California Wildfires in 2017, is a stand out from Hand Habits' critically acclaimed sophomore album, placeholder.
Hand Habits, in partnership with Saddle Creek and Bandcamp, will be donating 100% of the profits raised from this campaign to the Amazon Conservation Association, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, that has been protecting the western Amazon for almost 20 years. More info about the campaign, which features 3 different pledge levels, can be found HERE. Once the fundraising goal is met, the vinyl will be put into production and the entire EP will be released exclusively via Bandcamp.
The Rise is the first word in a conversation, the first step on a new, unkept trail. It’s the beginning of a new era for the Toronto trio, and the first of three pieces in a year-long puzzle, which will be constructed over three separate releases.
