    United Nations have released their new song “Stairway to Mar-a-Lago.” Noisey debuted the track and point out that it is not Geoff Rickly on vocals:

    inger Geoff Rickly has stepped down from vocal duties. But recognizing that these are dark times and the world needs UN’s brand of satirical political commentary now more than ever, the band is soldiering on and has recruited a friend to fill in on their new song, “Stairway to Mar-a-Lago.”

    I know that's a first-instinct guess but that should kinda be eliminated once you actually listen to the song.

    A friend guessed Kathy from Circle Takes the Square, which seems pretty logical.

    Circle makes sense. I was thinking dude from blood brothers but have only listened for 20 seconds


    Definitely not blood brothers. In a way it does sound like Daryl. Also sounds like kathy. I'm leaning towards Daryl though.

    Yeah after listening to song twice I got away from BB. Song is great whoever is singing.

    I'm a huge fan of Thursday but I think Rickly's easiest the weakest part of UN. I like the vocals on this track slightly more, but still the weakest part.

    Non vocally, this band is sooo good. Wish they would find a vocalist that doesn't sound like they're whispering into a distortion pedal.

    One of the only good things to come out of today. This was desperately needed.

    Nah...this band is all about how it doesn't matter who is in the band. The silver lining here is that with Ricklys departure, brightens the opportunity of more Thursday activity. IDK tho...not really sure what their status is of late. I noticed the reunions and that's it.
