We wanted to find a way to support Matt and the work All Hands Volunteers is currently doing. It’s a great initiative, in which selfless volunteers have been getting their hands dirty helping to rebuild communities,” says drummer Dallas Thompson.
All proceeds from the sale of the EP will go to support the charity. SST will be available for purchase via the bands website, iTunes and through the New Damage Records website.
