Last month, RX Bandits announced plans to commemorate the 10th anniversary of their landmark album Resignation with an extensive summer tour. In further celebration, the band has announced the release of a five-track covers EP, which serves as their first recorded material in four years.
Each week leading up to the tour’s launch on July 5th, the band will release one of the EP’s songs. First up is their cover of The Police’s “Can’t Stand Losing You”, which is streaming at Alternative Press.
Also included are covers of Blonde Redhead, Weezer, and Fugazi. The fifth, King Crimson’s “21st Century Man”, will only be available on the CD given away for free at each show.
