By now, you’re probably aware of the tragic passing of Chris Friedrich, bassist with Caspian — it came completely out of nowhere and shocked a large portion of us. It also came with the revelation that he had married only months before leading to longtime tour-mates and fellow post-rock legends This Will Destroy You to reach out and release a previously rare track fittingly entitled ‘Their Celebrations‘ that was originally only available through a compilation put together by Amnesty International.
The track is being put out through the Magic Bullet Records Bandcamp page for the price of $1 with all proceeds going to benefit his grieving widow. At that price it’s hard to turn it down, but if you need more convincing then you can stream the track in full below:

It’s every bit as beautiful and delicate as you would expect from the band, they manage to put together soundscapes like no other.
