Local rockers Schooner are giving exclusive rights to their next release release to charity. The 6-song EP dubbed Duck Kee Sessions will be released on Tuesday, February 9 exclusively via CyTunes. For those unfamiliar with CyTunes, check out our December 2008 post about the music service. All proceeds from the site benefit the Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University.
The band will have a release show for the EP at The Pinhook in Durham on Friday, February 19 with Erie Choir, Veelee and The Popular Kids.
Check out the EP's track list below as well as a download of the lead-off track "Feel Better." You'll also find Schooner's upcoming dates and radio appearances down there too.
In related news, Reid Johnson said that his side project with Ivan Howard (of The Rosebuds) and Zeno Gill (of Pox World Empire) called The Flute Flies is working on six new songs, two from each songwriter. More on that when it's available. Check out photos and a review of The Flue Flies first show at Local 506 in December 2008 here.
