Enter Shikari frontman Rou Reynolds (ROUT) offers Nourishment for 2012 ActionAid fundraising EP
Charity download EP to be released for just a minimum donation of £1 on 28th August 2012, Reading Festival launch planned
Every so often we learn of a worthy charity event or release and this one is no exception. Rou Reynolds, frontman of Enter Shikari, has recently spent time devoting time to the ActionAid project based in Ghana, helping with filming and documenting footage back in the UK.
Reynolds was inspired by the plight of the people and says:
Hearing about ActionAid's work from someone who'd seen it first-hand captured my imagination, and I wanted to produce this record to make sure all our fans go and check out the amazing stuff ActionAid do.
Called "Nourishment" and released under his solo-guise of ROUT, Reynolds has mixed pin-sharp beats with sampled dialogue and songs taken from the Ghanaian people featured in the teaser video on this page. The idea behind the EP is simple - to raise awareness and funds for Reynold's favourite charity and direct people to the ActionAid cause in the process.
For just a minimum donation of £1 (it's already sounding like it's worth far more, quite frankly - and you are free to pay a bit more), you get four innovative tracks from a man we're used to hearing screaming at all and sundry in one of the UK's sharpest rock bands, Enter Shikari. The EP will be available to download from Tuesday 28th August, here: www.entershikari.com/downloads
If you are heading to the Reading Festival this coming weekend, you can witness the official launch of the EP at the start of Enter Shikari's DJ set at the ActionAid tent just before midnight on Saturday 25th August. You can also check ActionAid DJ sets at Reading from Huw Stephens (Thursday 11pm), Alt-J (Friday midnight) and The View (Sunday midnight).
