All Proceeds Go To The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society
Canadian band Dogpile, known for its releases in the 1990’s of industrial rock often compared to Godflesh, Skinny Puppy etc. and its risqué use of homo-erotic artwork are releasing their first new studio tracks since 1995. All revenue generated by these songs will be going to charity.
Dogpile formerly signed to Belgium’s Kk Records gained notoriety for their aggressive, guitar heavy
sound, unrelenting drum machine and mix of screaming and growling vocals. “They looked like they
hated the world, no thank-you for coming shit, no encores, no contact with the audience, no laughs.
Just short sets of violent guitars and hate” wrote one live show attendee.
Vocalist William Adams states “I thought all the anger and vitriol had been medicated out of me. I was
wrong; it’s not gone, just more refined and calculated.” Inspired to move forward with new Dogpile
material by the recent death of their close friend and tour manager from pancreatic cancer, this may
set the stage for further new material from the band. All proceeds from “Broke Upon the First Stress”
will be donated to The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Sea Shepherd's primary mandate is to
assume a law enforcement role as provided by the United Nations World Charter for Nature.
Choosing The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as the recipient for revenue generated from this
song was based on Adams’ desire to “save the planet, not humanity”.
A digital only release, “Broke Upon the First Stress/Mute Girl” is is available now
from Adams’ Trees & Wires imprint with cover art by photographer Michael Dent. Adams has
quietly been putting out hand packaged discs in recent years under the name “Dragging The Mule”.
