For its second annual Ten Bands One Cause, RED Distribution is re-releasing 10 bands’ iconic albums on pink vinyl this September to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness month and to raise proceeds for cancer education and family support charity Gilda’s Club New York City (GCNYC).
This year’s limited-edition pink vinyl includes albums by Run The Jewels, Sturgill Simpson, Ingrid Michaelson, Joey Bada$$, Between the Buried and Me, Chet Faker, Clutch, Al Green, Pierce the Veil, and Primus.
“I lost my mother to cancer last year and want to do all I can do to help those affected by this cruel disease,” said Ingrid Michaelson. “I am honored to be a part of Ten bands One Cause benefiting Gilda’s Club NYC.”
The special reissues will be available nationwide starting September 29, in advance of Breast Cancer Awareness month this October.
Gilda’s Club NYC was founded in honor of Gilda Radner, a renowned, trailblazing comedian and original cast member of Saturday Night Live. Radner passed away due to ovarian cancer in 1989 and GCNYC was founded in her memory in 1995.
GCNYC’s mission is to support, educate and empower cancer patients and their families. Currently more than 4,200 men, women, teens and children attend free support groups, educational lectures and workshops at the West Village townhouse or at partner hospital locations around NYC. More than half of GCNYC’s members have cancer themselves; other members include family members or friends.
Last year, Ten Bands One Cause raised more than $30,000 for the organization.
“Breast cancer is something that affects each one of us,” said Clutch band member Jean-Paul Gaster. “We are honored to lend our support to Gilda’s Club NYC and their mission to support, empower, educate cancer patients and their families.”
