Chicago’s Snow Burial have announced that they will be live streaming an acoustic performance this week, via the Prosthetic Records YouTube channel.
The stream will happen on Thursday, 26 March at 8 EDT/ 7 CDT/ 5 PDT. Additionally, the band will be accepting donations throughout the performance, and will be sending all money raised to The Greater Chicago Food Depository.
Snow Burial’s Ben Bowman comments:
Like pretty much everyone involved in the music industry we have shifted rapidly from being extremely bummed about cancelling our tour to wondering what we could do to help. Doing a livestream and donating all the proceeds to a local food bank seems like one of the best ways that we can do that. Well, Brandon is actually providing the true best help – he’s a physician’s assistant, treating patients through this pandemic. I can just play guitar and sing a bit.
It’s not the same as touring (at all) but I am very excited to have an excuse to experiment with our songs and play for folks over the internet. I’ll be playing acoustic-ish versions of each song on Ostrava (I’m physically incapable of not using a delay pedal) with some commentary on the songs and the chance to chat with everyone live. I’m stoked to take a new approach on the tunes, and, frankly, to have something to look forward to. All of Illinois is under a shelter-at-home order and it’s easy to have a very hard time through this. Having some fun in a way that can help those in real need is exciting.
Snow Burial were recently forced to cancel shows with Huntsmen due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Snow Burial are supporting their latest LP, ‘Ostrava.’
