The Bar Stool Preachers are top lads. Pure and simple. Allow me to prove it to you. Ready? Right. Well read on then.
Some people want to see the world burn. Others want to help out in any way they can. Sometimes we do get the heroes we deserve. Sometimes.
It could be as simple as a kind gesture. Something that helps ease the desperation and sense of helplessness that a hard time can have on somebody else. A stranger. A complete unknown. Or in this case, it can be a band offering their music for free with a promise to help out those keeping us safe. These heroes wear musical instruments instead of capes.
Cue The Bar Stool Preachers. In a message we found in our inbox this morning, the band announced a new free two song EP. “This Soundtrack To Your Apocalypse”. The band also states that donations are welcome, and that other merchandise like shirts and prints are available. The proceed of which will help the band survive and be used to help out the real heroes – the men and women on the medical front lines.
If that isn’t a worthwhile cause – I don’t know what is. Good lads!

The following is the bands message :
This is a digital EP. released as the world changes around us. As quarantine hit and the statesmen unraveled our fates, we locked ourselves in the studio and we made this for you.
“This Soundtrack To Your Apocalypse.” We made it free.
We made it free because even if we don’t know what’s around the corner, we know people will need music.
If you want to donate, it will buy us groceries and keep a roof over our head. If you can’t donate, we hope you share this and help us in that way.
We’re giving away some of the money we make, directly to help healthcare workers and their families.
We chose this charity: www.NHScharitiestogether.co.uk but we’re also down for suggestions.
We’re selling prints, t-shirts, and hoodies, designed by cartoon legend Zombieteeth. Buying our merch is a great way of supporting the band. It also makes us feel less guilty for using your money to live and fund the band. We’re also giving a portion of all merch made to the same charity. Coz we can.
This is a call to be better. To be kinder. Share strength. To be a community that leads with love. And to hold politicians accountable.
This is for us, this is for you, and this is to help as much as we can.
