A north-based alternative rock band has launched an EP with a difference, as proceeds from it will be used to support a live music venue in Inverness.
Four piece band, Distance Between Us, whose members come from Alness, Forres and Elgin, played the city’s Tooth & Claw venue in February and made a recording of their performance – originally for their own use.
But with many independent live music businesses facing financial difficulty because of the current lockdown, they decided to reach out and support the venue they consider their ‘spiritual home.’
The live recording they made in February has been released as a six track EP which includes a favourite track with their fans, Emergency Line.
Singer and guitarist, Dave McBain, said: “We have decided to sell the EP via a pay-what-you-want option, and any money we receive from sales of it will be given directly to the Tooth & Claw.
“Nobody knows how long the lockdown is going to go on for, so any money we can raise will go some way to keeping the lights on until things return to normal.
“I know people are off work just now and money is tight, but every little helps.
“If they can pay £10, £5 or even £1, then hopefully they will have a live music venue to go to in Inverness when this is all over.”
The EP can be bought via the band’s Facebook page or online at distancebetweenus.bandcamp.com.
