Culture Abuse are a band that can’t sit still. Since their inception in 2013, they’ve relentlessly showed their creativity through music, art exhibitions, photography and live performances. Culture Abuse's new collections album— Good Shit, Bad Shit, Who Gives a Shit?! (available digitally on July 24th)—  encompasses the demo process of writing their records, live recordings from their many years of touring, and their history of collaborating musically with friends. Live songs recorded by fans at the shows, cover songs they’ve laid down for fun, alternate versions of previously released songs, and literally the first recordings of song ideas are all presented on this 29-song album of unreleased recordings from the Culture Abuse archive. Check out the track listing for the collection below.

The first single to surface from Good Shit, Bad Shit, Who Gives a Shit?!  is an alternate version of “Heavy Love” (from 2016’s Peach).  This stripped-down, slowed-down version of the track features bonus instrumentation and a chilling vocal appearance from Juan Gabe (Comadre), and feels as freewheeling and fascinating as ever.

Culture Abuse comments, “With the state of the live music industry in limbo, we thought now is a better time than any to open ourselves up and give the listener a different take on some of our past work. We take the groovy mid-tempo songs off Bay Dream (2018) and give you our aggressive live set atmosphere. We re-imagined the faster, more upbeat songs from Peach (2016) and slowed them down into an acoustic, stripped-down set.”  They continue, “Cover songs from iconic bands like the Sex Pistols, the Buzzcocks and the Equals— we tear ‘em up and piece ‘em back together the way we do when we sit down together and make ‘zines, tour posters and show flyers.  Some of our original songs are covered by our close friends within this collection.  We’re presenting this release through digital outlets so the songs are at their most accessible. So whatever’s happening in your life, here are some songs to help you take it all on: the good shit & the bad shit.”
With their kinetic D.I.Y ideology, Culture Abuse once again have transcended genre and returned with an electrifying collection that traverses their career and catalog thus far.
