Pat Egan of Relapse

Pat Egan, longtime Director of Retail Sales at Relapse Records, tragically passed away on Monday February 18th after a battle with pneumonia and related complications. In honor of the man who was so instrumental in the success of so many Relapse bands and records, the label has put together a 20 track compilation featuring a collection of his favorite songs and artists, including Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Brian Posehn, Red Fang, Death, and many more, including a never-before-released track from Exhumed.
All of the proceeds from the release will go towards a college fund for his daughter Katie. Alternately, if you want to donate more or just want to donate, you can contribute via Paypal to wellmissyoupat@relapse.com. Stream that comp below and buy your copy at Bandcamp.

RIP Pat Egan. We crossed paths many many times at shows and beyond and your presence and humor will be missed.
