Battlehooch is offering up a new, limited edition live EP, entitled Casual Religious. The EP features three favorite Battlehooch tunes plus one new track, entitled “Joke.”

Battlehooch – “Joke” (live)

During Battlehooch’s “Desolation” tour of 2010, the band stopped at a venue called the Hobby Shop, a live music space that doubles as a recording studio. The live recordings were engineered by Andrew “Mud” Murdock, and later mixed at San Francisco’s own Hyde Street Studios.

The band is releasing just 500 copies of the EP, available for free at Battlehooch’s show at the Independent Friday night, 7/1/11 (9:00 pm, $13, with Ghost and the City, Sun Hop Fat, and Panhandlers). Casual Religious will not be available for purchase after the limited copies are gone, so those who want the EP will have to head out to the Independent tomorrow night.
