Today marks the birthday of the late Red Tape Parade singer Wauz Kenobi. Kenobi succumbed to his battle with cancer last April, while working on the band’s newest material (which was to be part of their third full-length album).
The band has stated that “Leap Year of Faith” was one of the few demo songs that was completed with Wauz before he passed away. It has become somewhat of a dedication/memorial song, and the members have joined with other fellow musicians to create this music video for the track.
Check it out below.
The song (with B-side of “Song 21”) and video appear on a “tribute bundle” that is being released today through End Hits Records, and is said to be the last new work we shall see from Red Tape Parade.
The bundle includes 7″ and DVD, which features full live Red Tape Parade show, as well as a ton of bonus content ranging from interviews to music videos to Joey Cape and Brian Wahlstrom’s acoustic tribute to Kenobi.
