Run The Jewels, Ingrid Michaelson & More Team Up For Ten Bands One Cause

CLUTCH * AL GREEN * PIERCE THE VEIL * PRIMUS

RED DISTRIBUTION LAUNCHES 2ND ANNUAL PINK VINYL PROGRAM FOR CANCER AID AND AWARENESS WITH 10 DIVERSE AND EXCITING ARTISTS, OUT SEPTEMBER 29, 2015

PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT GILDA'S CLUB NYC, AN INNOVATIVE CANCER SUPPORT ORGANIZATION

Over a year ago, RED Distribution teamed up with some of its premiere label partners and artists to create and launch Ten Bands One Cause, a program that involved the creation of limited pink vinyl for ten different releases.

The program, which included notables like Against Me!, Courtney Barnett, Jason Isbell, Lucius, Temples and others, coincided with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October). It raised nearly $30,000 for Gilda's Club NYC, an innovative cancer support organization founded in 1995 by psychotherapist Joanna Bull, Gene Wilder, Mandy Patinkin, Joel Siegel, and other generous individuals, in memory of SNL vet/actor/comedienne, Gilda Radner, who passed away in 1989 from cancer.

On September 29th, RED is set to release its second annual run of limited edition copies of pink vinyl from Run The Jewels, Sturgill Simpson, Ingrid Michaelson, Joey Bada$$, Between The Burried and Me, Chet Faker, Clutch, Al Green, Pierce The Veil, and Primus. The releases will be available for purchase at retailers nationwide wherever vinyl is sold, and proceeds will sponsor Gilda's Club NYC.

Says Ingrid Michaelson of the project, "I lost my mother to cancer last year and want to do all I can do to help those affected by this cruel disease. I am honored to be a part of 10 bands One Cause benefiting Gilda's Club NYC."

Adds JP from Clutch,"Breast cancer is something that effects each one of us. We are honored to lend our support to Gilda's Club NYC and their mission to support, empower, educate cancer patients and their families."

Gilda's Club NYC's mission is to provide welcoming communities for women and men who are diagnosed with cancer, their caregivers or for those who have lost someone to cancer. Their innovative program is an essential complement to medical care, providing networking and support groups, educational lectures, workshops and social activities, all free of charge. A cancer diagnosis can be an extremely isolating experience, which triggers many emotions including fear, anger, depression and an overwhelming sense of helplessness. Gilda's Club NYC believes no one should face cancer alone.

Quote from Lily Safani, CEO, Gilda's Club NYC

"When someone gets diagnosed with cancer it impacts everyone who is close to them - in many different ways. The daily routine of life now includes doctors' visits, weekly treatments and unprecedented medical expenses. The new "routine" is difficult to manage and navigate alone. But at Gilda's Club NYC, we help cancer patients and their families learn how to live with a cancer diagnosis - through our support groups, educational lectures, and classes. It's important to know you aren't alone and at Gilda's Club, you never are."

A number of outside companies have offered to partner this year including Baked By Melissa (by providing pink cupcakes for listening parties), Crosley (offering up pink Crosley turntables for giveaways), Record Store Day (who distributed 10,000 koozies on Record Store Day) & more.

Sims: OCKZ is hungrier than his peers. And Brooklyn's emerging emcee feels as if the wait has been long enough. As he maneuvers his way through the industry, making new friends and copping epic features, he's been readying a mixtape that might well be considered an album in scope and quality.
