Christened Perpetual Penance, the comp rounds up live rarities, demos, and errant material from the band's numerous split releases and packages them all together into one tidy two-disc set, crowned with artwork by vocalist (and noted sunglasses enthusiast) Uchino.Listen to the whole bloody thing on HPGD's Bandcamp page, and cross your fingers for a Coffins/Winter split (a girl can dream, right?).TRACK LISTING:Disc 11.
