Hot Chip are very pleased to release a never heard before track ‘Losing My Head’ (Superpitcher Dub), taken from the band’s ‘A Bath Full Of Ecstasy’ album sessions.
All profits from the track – on sale via Bandcamp only – will be donated to climate emergency action group EarthPercent.
‘Despite the challenges that our industry faces in modifying its working methods in order to limit damage to the climate we feel that it’s incredibly important to face up to those changes. The scientific consensus on the impending climate emergency is irrefutable and we all need to recognise our responsibilities in attempting to avert it. In all honesty it should be our number one priority at this moment. Our government continually fails in making it so but we need to come together to set a better example.’
– Hot Chip
Additionally, the quintet have announced they will be playing a special show at London’s EartH with all profits going to EarthPercent to further support the cause. The show will be presented with Music Declares Emergency’s #NOMUSICONADEADPLANET campaign
Sunday 7th November – EartH, London – with support from HARD FEELINGS.
Tickets will be on sale at 10am BST on Thursday 14th October from gigsandtours.com
