Guided by Voices are launching a subscription service. It’s called HOT FREAKS, named for the song from the band’s 1994 album Bee Thousand, and according to a post on the band’s website, every Tuesday, “a weekly email will deliver sneak previews of brand new songs, plus rarities, never-before-heard tracks, demos, live concert recordings, rare photos and videos, recording secrets, exclusive swag offers, and many more surprises from deep within the Guided By Voices vaults.”
Cost of the subscription is $100 a year, with exclusive access to downloads and streams, as well as what they describe as an “easy-to-use phone app.” The post also reads, “We kindly ask subscribers not to leak, share, upload, sell, broadcast or podcast the contents of HOT FREAKS. Thanks for your support and stay safe and healthy!”
