Overdue Collection Agency is celebrating its new status as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and has teamed up with Gates and Pryor to produce the split 7”. The split is titled Burn Bright Vol. 1, and will be the first release of original material from the label. In addition, 50% of the profits from this release will benefit charitable organizations that support survivors of sexual assault, The East Los Angeles Women’s Center and RAINN.

Gates’ contribution to the split record is a stunning song called “Captive,” which is an unreleased b-side from their critically heralded full-length album Bloom & Breathe (available now from Pure Noise Records).

““Captive” was one of our favorite songs from the Bloom & Breathe recording sessions, and we thought it stood so well on it’s own that we ultimately decided to leave it off the album to present in another project,” says vocalist/guitarist Kevin Dye. “When Michael from Overdue Collection reached out about doing a charity split with Matt Pryor, we knew it was the right placement for the track."

"In addition to working with a label dedicated to quality vinyl releases, we’re proud to be supporting charities focused on survivors of sexual assault with a portion of the profits for this release,” Dye adds. “This cause is extremely important and we urge you to look into these organizations and donate further in any way you can."

Additionally, Pryor has contributed two tracks, "My Own Reflection" and "Brake Lines," to Burn Bright Vol. 1. His latest release is the live album Nine Forty Live, and fans can catch him in concert with Chris Conley and Andy Jackson on the tail end of his current tour. Get tickets here.
