Last week Craig Owens announced his latest endeavor – his very own clothing line. The line is called Cheer Up Kid, and it’s available for purchase via the new MerchNow store that was recently set up. In addition to the store, Owens launched a Bandcamp page under the clothing line moniker. Yesterday afternoon, the musician surprised fans by releasing a short grindcore EP he recorded with a friend of his last year. The project has been dubbed as Bea5t, and the EP is titled Empathy Is A Gift. It’s a short, surprisingly brutal effort that Owens is not usually known for. It’s also kind of awesome. You can stream/purchase the EP via Bandcamp below.
