This year, 10 different artists are givings fans the chance to purchase exclusive pink pressings of their albums for a good cause.
Now in its third installment, 10 Bands One Cause uses these funds from the releases to benefit Gilda’s Club NYC.
Named after late comedian and SNL star Gilda Radner, the club is a free safe haven and educational center for those who are going through (or have been affected by) cancer.
“Gilda’s Club’s mission statement is simple, ‘No one should face cancer alone,’” said Anthrax founding member Scott Ian in a statement. “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.”
Seven of the albums are reissues and include: Courtney Barnett’s Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, Anthrax’s For All Kings, Ed Sheeran’s X, Jim Breuer and the Loud & Rowdy’s Songs From the Garage, My Chemical Romance’s Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ The Getaway and The Black Keys’ Chulahoma: The Songs of Junior Kimbrough.
The other three are forthcoming new releases, including Pixie’s Head Carrier, Opeth’s Sorceress and NOFX’s First Ditch Effort.
Past artists who have contributed include Run the Jewels, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell and Primus.
The pressings can be ordered online through various retailers here and will be available nationwide wherever vinyl is sold.
