Ingrid Michaelson, Joey Bada$$ Will Release Pink Vinyl for Cancer Support Group
Digital downloads make music acquisition easy, but there's nothing nothing like the touch of a tangible record, and now music buffs have extra incentive to expand their vinyl collections.
Later this month, and in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness efforts, RED Distribution will partner with Ingrid Michaelson, Joey Bada$$ and additional artists to release pink vinyl records as part of Ten Bands One Cause, an initiative that aims to raise money for cancer-support group Gilda's Club NYC. The campaign kicked off last year with artists like Courtney Barnett and Temples and raised $30,000.
"I lost my mother to cancer last year, and want to do all I can do to help those affected by this cruel disease," Michaelson said of the project, according to a statement. "I am honored to be a part of Ten Bands One Cause benefiting Gilda's Club NYC."
Gilda's Club NYC, which was founded in 1995, offers support group meetings, informational lectures and workshops for men and women of any age who suffer from cancer and their families. It was named in honor of Saturday Night Live legend Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer in 1989, and is known around the city for its iconic big, red door. Gilda's Club currently serves more than 4,000 people.
Run the Jewels, Sturgill Simpson, Al Green, Between the Buried and Me, Chet Faker, Pierce the Veil, Primus and Clutch will also release records as part of Ten Bands One Cause.
Be sure to pick up a copy of these artists' releases anywhere vinyl is sold starting September 29, and get more information here.
