MR. BUNGLE Releases First Music In 20 Years: A Cover Of THE EXPLOITED’s ‘USA’
MR. BUNGLE roars back with their first recorded music since 1999, releasing a cover of THE EXPLOITED’s politically charged anthem “USA”, available now on all digital platforms via Ipecac Recordings.
Watch the song ‘USA’ below.
The San Francisco Bay Area band, whose current incarnation features original members Trevor Dunn, Mike Patton and Trey Spruance, along with Scott Ian (ANTHRAX, S.O.D.) and Dave Lombardo (DEAD CROSS, ex-SLAYER, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES), is donating 100% of the proceeds from both the song and a limited edition t-shirt to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, through July 4. The shirt, which will only be offered through Independence Day, is available exclusively via MR. BUNGLE’s webstore. MusiCares’ COVID-19 Relief Fund was created by The Recording Academy to help those within the music community who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
“Doesn’t matter what part of the political spectrum you are on, everyone at some point has said ‘F**k the USA.’ The closest thing we have to a universal sentiment,” says Spruance.
“This is a song that resonates and speaks to the country that Ipecac calls home,” adds Ipecac Recordings co-owner Greg Werckman, who will also be donating the label’s proceeds from the single. “Over 100,000 U.S. citizens are dead from the pandemic. At the same time protective masks have turned into a political football and no one has a grasp on testing. Racism continues to rear its ugly head. Police brutality spikes, unemployment spikes, depression spikes and’‘our’ ego-driven elected officials don’t seem to care. We need to do a better job of looking out for each other. MusiCares looks after all of us in the music community.”
