Cover Your Ass Vol. 1 will feature covers recorded by Speedy Ortiz, Hinds, Cass McCombs Band, Porches, TEEN, Palehound, The Lemon Twigs, Deerhoof, Cut Worms, Daddy Issues, (Sandy) Alex G, The Quilz, and Luke Temple. This first volume of The Cover Your Ass series is a tribute to the dedication shown by countless doctors and nurses who make real measurable differences in millions of people’s lives. As such, Lionfish Music has pledged to donate 100% of profits from this album to Planned Parenthood in these times of uncertainty.
Cover Your Ass Vol. 1 will officially release on Friday May 26 via Lionfish Music, serving as the first installment of charitable compilation cover albums. With excitement towards the release the Lionfish Music team explains, “The generosity of the bands and everyone who is working to help spread the word about this album has truly been a heartwarming and uplifting experience. There's still a lot of good in this world."
The goal of this series is simply to make a difference for a cause that we feel very strongly about: women's basic rights to reproductive freedom and affordable health care for those who need it. We need to start covering our own asses now. We need to organize and mobilize. It’s time to make a positive impact. Music is one of the most universal means of using one’s voice to embody beliefs, and it’s time for us all to speak up.
