To celebrate today's Bandcamp Friday, St. Louis horror metal trio The Lion's Daughter (opens in new tab) have released a six-song digital EP, Turbo Covers, that features unreleased covers of Judas Priest (opens in new tab)'s Turbo Lover (opens in new tab) and Ministry (opens in new tab)'s Burning Inside!, alongside previously released, if hard-to-find covers of G.G. Allin (opens in new tab), Nine Inch Nails (opens in new tab), Mr. Bungle (opens in new tab) and Nirvana (opens in new tab). In addition, the band are also releasing a special Turbo Lover-inspired t-shirt design.

On the first Friday of every month since March of 2020, Bandcamp has waived their revenue share to help support the many artists who have seen their livelihoods disrupted by the pandemic. Over the course of these 14 days, fans paid artists and labels $59 million (£42.6 million), helping cover rents, mortgages, groceries, medications, and much more.

The Lion's Daughter's most recent album, last April's Skin Show, is available via Season Of Mist Records. Turbo Covers and the accompanying t-shirt are available via Bandcamp (opens in new tab).
