Hear New Sound: Thee Deadcoats' "Putin Lights Up the Fires" (Pussy Riot Cover)

...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead and the Coathangers are doing more than just setting out on the open road together these days, as they've just released a brand new collaborative single via BandCamp with all proceeds going to help pay legal fees for jailed Russian political punks Pussy Riot as well as those devastated by Hurricane Sandy via the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief fund. In it, members from each band -- under the moniker Thee Deadcoats -- cover Pussy Riot's fierce anti-Putin anthem "Putin Lights Up the Fires" (in English, of course.) As you may recall, ...Trail of Dead recently dedicated their latest release Lost Songs to the feminist punk act and stated that their new material was "inspired by the apathy to real world events that has plagued the independent music scene now for over a decade." Also of note, the track marks a reunion between ...Trail of Dead and producer Mike McCarthy, the man behind their 2002 classic Source Tags & Codes. The embers still burn brightly on that listen, just as they do on "Putin Lights Up the Fires"...
