Writing on Instagram, Mall Grab said: “This has all got me incredibly bummed and angry, since I feel I have something of a means to spread a message i’m putting up this “EP” with 4 unreleased mg bits that more than likely would never see the light of day otherwise – i hope this can help at least a little, because i feel like this is all i can do at the moment”.

NPR reports at least 25 people have died in the fires, while 500 million animals are estimated to have died.
