“The Chad Tape” leaks…

The Chad Tape was slated to be officially announced via a release from Flemish Eye on August 13, however, the internet had other plans!

Some time ago Chad VanGaalen approached Chris Reimer of Women offering to reproduce a casette tape of Chris’ solo work. Chris started work on this but passed away before completing the project. His closest friends have assembled the songs he intended for the tape, laid it out with Chris’s own writing and artwork and now this tape is available here for you.
***All proceeds from this release will benefit the Chris Reimer Legacy Fund, an organization dedicated to providing scholarships for children in music and dance education.***

You can still pre-order cassettes from the Chris Reimer Bandcamp site, and you can also download the digital album.

The project has already been mentioned by Rolling Stone, Stereogum, Chart Attack, CBC Music, Exclaim!, Pitchfork, CMU and elsewhere. We sure do hate that word “posthumous,” but we’re thrilled at the response to this work.

Or, as I said on Facebook: “I am remembering how I would call you jackass, and then you would call me jerkface, and then we would hug. You just got press from Rolling Stone, jackass. Love you.”
