Derek Archambault (Defeater, Alcoa) is in the midst of a crowd funding effort to raise money for a much needed hip replacement surgery. While almost 75% of the money needed to fund the surgery has been raised, the goal is still far from reached. Along with knowing you are helping someone get back on his feet, both literally and figuratively, and get back to what they love, by donating you also get something in return. Archambault has recorded four cover songs and a new version of a fan favorite on his Thank You EP. People have been donating blindly without hearing much from the recording until now; here is a live video cover of Elder Brother’s “Who’s Gonna Carry You Home?” from their debut on Pure Noise. Additionally, the EP features a new version of Defeater’s “I Don’t Mind”, and acoustic covers of “Shambles” by Make Do And Mend, Blacklisted’s “Stations” and “Young Kerouacs” by I Am The Avalanche.
