The Game samples Guster on New Album

West coast Hip Hop icon The Game sampled alt-pop pioneers Guster on his new song "Pot Of Gold" featuring Chris Brown.  The track is featured on The Game's new The R.E.D. Album, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, and features a large portion of the Guster classic "Rocketship" from the band's 2007 classic "Goldfly". You can watch the video for The Game's new Guster-sampled track here, and read a a witty Q&A the band did regarding the song on their website.

The band will be donating a portion of the money they earn from "Pot of Gold" to the Crittenton Women's Union.  Drummer Brian Rosenworcel offered this statement regarding their reaction to being sampled for this song, as well as their reasoning for choosing Crittenton Women's Union to donate their proceeds.  "Mostly we're flattered to have been sampled in a hit song.  I don't think it'll send droves of people out to discover our "Goldfly" album, but we're excited that we can make a donation to a worthwhile charity with money that comes in from this.  I have a friend who works at Crittenton Women's Union in Boston, and they do great work helping survivors of domestic abuse become economically independent".

The band is currently on tour with Jack's Mannequin in support of their new E.P. On The Ocean. Even Hurricane Irene couldn't keep the band off the road, as they ran into some pretty crazy weather on route.  They documented their experience with Irene here, as they made their way from New York to their show that night in Indiana.  Check out their remaining dates below.
