Stephen Egerton, der Gitarrist der Descendents, schenkt gemeinsam mit seiner Tochter und Bandkollegen Milo den Musikern von Pears den Song „Where´s My Shirt?“

In einem Statement dazu erklärt der Musiker, dass Pears die Lieblingsband seiner Tochter sein und diese kürzlich Shirts ihrer Idole bestellte. In voller Vorfreude und Erwartung schaute diese „dreimal am Tag unruhig in den Briefkasten. Und zwar jeden Tag. Sogar sonntags.“

Der Erlös des Songs geht an Pears

An der Gitarre und am Schlagzeug ist Egerton zu hören, seine Tochter Sophie am Bass und am Background-Gesang und Milo übernimmt die Vocals.

Der Erlös des Songs geht ganz an Pears, denn auch die US-amerikanische Band musste Ihre Tour aufgrund von Covid-19 absage. „Es ist eine kleine Geste“, erklärt Egerton, aber ich möchte ihnen dafür danken, dass sie so gut mitgemacht haben und die Vorgaben gegen die Pandemie ernst genommen haben.“

Hello, ALL! I wanted to let you know about a very short song that I’ve released, which can be found here: Just over a year ago, the Descendents got to play a few shows with the PEARS. I’d warned my daughter to be prepared, but she was totally blown away by their intensity and by halfway through their first set she had a new favorite band. She’s a music lover in general, but she really, really loves this band. A couple of weeks ago she used some of her paycheck (which is typically hoarded with a fury) to buy two PEARS shirts and one day later, she was anxiously checking the mailbox three times a day. Every day. Even on Sundays. Thus this song was born. I played guitar and drums, Sophie is on bass and backing vocals, and Milo stepped in as guest vocalist. As you well know, many touring bands have had to cancel or postpone tours due to covid-19. The PEARS are one of the bands impacted in this way, and so all proceeds from this song will go to them. It’s a small gesture, but I want to thank them for kicking ass, for taking CDC guidelines seriously, and for taking this song in the spirit in which it was intended. (I want to be clear that they were not at fault with Sophie’s impatience to get her shirts. She’s just a little…eager. ) If you would like to show them your support in other ways, check the links on the Bandcamp page. The link to the song is in my bio, and thanks for the jams, Erich, Zach, Brian, and Jarret!
