Santa Cruz punk lifers Good Riddance released a new LP, Thoughts and Prayers, in 2019, and while their plans to tour with Death by Stereo, The Homeless Gospel Choir, and Clowns this spring ahead of Punk Rock Bowling and Pouzza Fest never materialized due to you-know-what, they did release a benefit EP in April. Benefit for World Food Program USA features four unreleased songs from Thoughts and Prayers sessions, and you can stream it below.
