To celebrate Overdue’s new status as a 501( c )(3) charitable organization, we’ve teamed up with Gates and Matt Pryor to produce a superb split 7". The split is entitled Burn Bright Vol. 1, our first release of original material.
Each artist and associated labels graciously donated use of the songs, free of licensing fees. (Artists are still being paid mechanical royalties.)
In addition to commemorating our status as a 501(c)(3), 50% of the profits for this release will benefit two other charitable organizations. Both charities support survivors of sexual assault: The East Los Angeles Women’s Center and RAINN. Please head to their respective websites to make direct donations or to find out how you can help.
Gates contributed a b-side from their full length Bloom & Breathe, entitled “Captive”. Gates will be on tour this summer with Thrice and La Dispute.
Matt Pryor contributed two tracks “My Own Reflection” and “Brake Lines”, his latest release is the live album Nine Forty Live.
There are 5 variants in total, 3 are exclusive to the webstore. Gates and Matt Pryor have their own versions, which will be available on their respective tours. Here’s the pressing information:
