Renowned punk cellist Gordon Withers along with The 1984 Draft, an Ohio-based band channeling Rock sensibilities through a ‘90s-tinted Punk and Indie lens, have co-released a new single entitled “Honest.” The song was digitally released today via Poptek Records for Bandcamp Friday. There will also be a limited edition lathe cut 7” to follow in March. Gordon Withers delivers a cover of The 1984 Draft’s “Honest” on the A-side with the original The 1984 Draft version is featured on the B-side. All profits from the “Honest” single will benefit the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
The 1984 Draft Frontman Joe Anderl had the following to say about the release:
“This project started with one of my best friends giving me one of the kindest Christmas gifts I have ever received, a one-of-a-kind 7” where Gordon Withers had performed a cello quartet of The 1984 Draft’s ‘Honest.’ After receiving the gift, I thought that my friend and Gordon could really use a copy so I reached out to Gordon who was into the idea. We also decided to use this opportunity to give back and decided to donate the profits to the NAACP LDF.”
