UNDER THE RADAR: Filthy Friends – “Despierta” .
The supergroup Filthy Friends is made up of Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker, R.E.M.’s Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey, Bill Rieflin, and Kurt Bloch and the group is about to release their debut album, Invitation.
Originally created amongst the friends as a David Bowie cover band in 2012, the band has now grown into something more substantial. Now they’ve shared a video for their first-ever original song, “Despierta,” which was released last year as part of the anti-Trump 30 Days, 30 Songs series and is now the lead single for the new album.
Invitation is out August 25 via Kill Rock Stars
