by Bankshot!

Montreal, Canada's The Delegates have posted the entirety of their recent sophomore album for download. The album, titled The Diary of Hamilton Fish was released last year on Bankshot! Records.

The record is the follow up to their self-released debut, 2003's We All Taste The Same, and was produced by Mike Trujillo (Osker, Leftover Crack, Choking Victim) at Succulent Sounds in Highland Park, CA. You can download the entire album from this site.

In return for the free album, the band asks that:

you tell every single person you know to do the same; send emails, myspace invitations, put it in your blogs, comments, post it on your scene sites, write it in chalk on the sidewalk, make posters and put them up, make hand bills and hand them out, make t-shirts, write it on your ass and run naked through the streets, and whatever else you can think of to get people downloading the music.

The other thing I want you to do is, if you got a few bucks sitting around that you might have spent on the album, make a donation to Nata Village

Nata is a village of 5000 people located on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans which suffers from the second highest HIV infection rate in Africa. Every cent of every donation will go directly to the people of the Village to help with everything from mosquito nets to antiviral drugs.

The band is also working on a new album, and more information on that is expected soon.
