The Morning Benders, the Brooklyn-based band via Berkeley, CA have put together the Japan Echo EP to benefit the Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund.
As Chris Chu (lead singer and guitarist) notes on the band’s website:
Last week we were scheduled to go to Tokyo to play our first show ever in Japan. It was going to be a very special trip for us, and for me in particular. I had always dreamt of going back to Japan to play music. Not many people know this, but I was actually born in Japan, and although I only lived there for a couple years, I’ve always had a deep love for the country and its people. I cannot express how sad and helpless I’ve felt reading about everything that is happening there right now, and even though we couldn’t be there, we wanted to do everything we could to help. We love you Japan.
The EP is primarily a remix of their Big Echo album with a couple of other songs. It is only available from the band’s website with 100% of the proceeds donated directly to the Relief Fund.
