Ten Bands One Cause | Benefit Gilda's Club

Article Contributed by Good Cop PR | Published on Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Music distribution companies RED and WEA are spearheading the third annual Ten Bands One Cause charity initiative. This campaign offers fans limited and collectible album reissues on pink vinyl from 10 top name artists. These reissues are part of a program that raises funds and awareness for Gilda's Club NYC, a non-profit which works to support, educate and empower cancer patients and their families.  Gilda’s Club NYC was founded in 1995 in memory of beloved actress/comedian, Gilda Radner who lost her fight with ovarian cancer in 1989.

This year's artists reflect the program's routine diversity, and include, among others, Aussie indie fave Courtney Barnett, legendary rock band The Pixies, and seminal metal outfit Anthrax, whose Scott Ian says, “Gilda’s Club’s mission statement is simple, “No one should face cancer alone.” The vital support they give to cancer patients and their families is truly a noble cause and we are honored to be able to help.” Comedian and musician Jim Breuer, who is also participating in the initiative adds, “I saw personally the effects of breast cancer. My wife dealt with it twice. I'm happy to support this cause to create more awareness on this subject.”

7 of the titles will be released on 9/27/16. 3 other titles are brand new albums being released on 9/30/16 and 10/7/16. They will be available wherever vinyl is sold (preorders already available at Bull Moose, srcvinyl, Amazon, and you can find your local record store HERE).

Bull Moose, an independent retail chain based out of Portland, Maine is donating $1 for each of the next 1,000 subscribers to a Ten Bands One Cause Spotify playlist. You can view the playlist HERE.

In the past 2 years, RED and its account, artist and label partners have been successful in raising over $65,000 for Gilda's Club NYC. Artist participation on social media, combined with posts from participating retailers generated massive impressions, and press pickup from such key outlets as Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and more helped immensely in spreading the word.

Artists that have previously participated in the Ten Bands One Cause initiative have included Against Me!, Courtney Barnett, Jason Isbell, Kellie Pickler, Lucius, Nothing, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Temples, In This Moment, Me First & The Gimme Gimmes, Run The Jewels, Sturgill Simpson, Joey Bada$$, Al Green, Between The Buried & Me, Chet Faker, Pierce The Veil, Primus, Clutch and Ingrid Michaelson.

Gilda's Club NYC’s mission is to support, educate and empower cancer patients and their families.  A cancer diagnosis can be an extremely isolating experience which triggers many emotions including fear, anger, depression and an overwhelming sense of helplessness.  Currently more than 4200 men, women, teens, and children attend free support groups, educational lectures and workshops at the West Village townhouse or at hospital partners around NYC.  More than 55 percent of our members have a cancer diagnosis, and the remaining are their loved ones – their children, partners, relatives or friends.  At Gilda's Club NYC, we believe no one should face cancer alone.
