The Playbook release cover of “Macy’s Day Parade” by Green Day to raise money for The Heart Foundation

Australian pop-punks The Playbook are streaming an acoustic cover of the track “Macy’s Day Parade,” originally by Green Day. The track was released in order to raise money for The Heart Foundation in Australia. You can listen below, and if you can consider donating through Bandcamp here as all proceeds will go towards The Heart Foundation.

On the release the band has said: It’s far from polished, there are mistakes and off notes, but there is a reason behind our decision to put this online… Brent, one of our guitarists, had a heart transplant when he was a teenager. He doesn’t complain about it, however, the things that he goes through health wise every single day are absolutely mind blowing to the rest of us. Recently, Brent has been in hospital going through cardiac failure. Despite all of his best efforts, he is unable to come to Tasmania with us on The December Dates In Forgotten States Tour. As a result, we will now be playing these shows acoustically. We’ll be playing originals with a couple of covers thrown in, so thought this is how we would make the (very last minute) announcement. This cover will be online for only a short time and we will be giving any money donated by you guys for the track to the Heart Foundation to support them in all the brilliant work they do. This means a lot to us personally, so thank you in advance for checking out the cover!

Bleacher Days (pop punk) stream new EP ahead of schedule, set out on December tour

Boston punks Bleacher Days are now streaming their new EP, I Only Saw True Purpose, ahead of schedule.

The boys are also setting out on their run of December shows next Friday, December 8th to celebrate.

According to vocalist Wren Mohammed, The period when we were writing the songs was for sure a rough time, but it was a complete catharsis honestly. Our producer Chris had a much larger part in the writing process, and the songs are all SO much better for it. He’s a really talented guy, and we learned a lot when we recorded with him, so we’re lucky to have him on our team. Recording the songs definitely helped us all cope with what we were individually going through at the time as well. So even though frustration is what drove its conception, in the end we all came out much healthier and wiser people, and we hope each listener feels that with each listen.

You can listen to the new EP, or check out the show dates below.
