In collaboration with Deb Googe from My Bloody Valentine and more.
Thurston Moore is set to release ‘Chelsea’s Kiss’ b/w ‘Sad Saturday’ this Cassette Store Day (October 8) in support of the campaign to free Chelsea Manning, a US Army solider who was given a 30-year prison sentence in July 2013 for violating the Espionage Act by giving information to Wikileaks.
Partial proceeds from the single will go to the Chelsea Manning Support Network (if Julian Assange’s alleged offer to go to prison if President Obama pardons Manning doesn’t happen first.)
There will be a release party at London’s Lion Coffee + Records on October 8. ‘Chelsea’s Kiss’ will be released via Blank Editions and is available for preorder now.
