For the third year in a row, ten artists will issue or reissue their albums on pink vinyl to raise money for Gilda’s Club NYC. The non-profit is named after comedienne Gilda Radner who died from cancer in 1989 at the age of 43.
“Gilda’s Club’s mission statement is simple, ‘No one should face cancer alone,'” Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian said 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.”
This year’s limited edition and collectible album reissues are Anthrax’s For All Kings, the Black Keys’ Chulahoma, Courtney Barnett’s Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, Ed Sheeran’s X, Jim Breuer and the Loud & Rowdy’s Songs From the Garage, My Chemical Romance’s Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, NOFX’s First Ditch Effort, and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ The Getaway. All will be released Sepember 27. The remaining three titles are brand new albums, two of which, Opeth’s Sorceress and Pixies’ Head Carrier Will come out September 30, and one, NOFX’s First Ditch Effort will be released October 7.
Comedian/musician Breuer’s wife has experience with the battle to defeat cancer. “My wife dealt with it twice,” he said in a statement. “I’m happy to support this cause to create more awareness on this subject.”
