PANTERA has released a limited-edition social distancing t-shirt based on the cover of the band’s classic album “Vulgar Display Of Power”. 40 percent of the net proceeds generated from the purchase of the shirt — which features the “Walk” song lyrics “Be yourself, by yourself, stay away from me” — will be donated to the MusiCares COVID-19 relief fund.
Experts say “social distancing” is the best way to curtail the spread and dampen the impact of the coronavirus on the population.
The Centers For Disease Control And Preventiondefines “social distancing” as the act of “remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet) from others when possible.”
Members of Ghost performed an instrumental cover of Pantera‘s “Walk” during their October 24th set at the Giant Center in Hershey, PA. Fan-filmed footage of that can be seen online below. The band are currently prepping for a European/UK tour to close out the year. They will be taking 2020 off from the road to start working on their new album for a 2021 release.
