The local metal band Midnight has just issued a cover of D.R.I.'s "I Don't Need Society" for a hurricane relief benefit. All profits from the track, which is available as an exclusive Bandcamp download-only track, will go to the Red Cross and its efforts to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

"Being wild nutty metalist/punkoid/scumball/rockheads blah blah blah, we all feel we don't need society,” says Midnight frontman Athenar in a press release. “But like it or not, we are a part of society...I think? Maybe not, but anyway, here's an interpretation of 'I Don't Need Society' by one of my all-time favorite Texas bands, Dirty Rotten Imbeciles. So, instead of buying a pair of those used soiled panties off of Ebay or that 13-inch-long un-sanded dildo that you've had your eye on for quite some time now, use that cash to help out some folks in the Lone Star State who may need a pair of soiled panties or a dildo of some sort."

Later this year, the band will release its third album, Sweet Death and Ecstasy, via the Hells Headbangers imprint. The CD version will feature a bonus disc featuring a 12-song live rehearsal recorded in 2015.
