Run the Jewels, Al Green Reissue LPs on Pink Vinyl for Cancer Charity
Run the Jewels, Al Green, Primus and Sturgill Simpson are among the artists who will issue pink vinyl versions of their albums on September 29th as part of Ten Bands One Cause, a RED-led effort to raise cancer aid and awareness. Joey Bada$$, Ingrid Michaelson, Clutch, Chet Faker, Between the Buried & Me and Pierce the Veil will also reissue their LPs on limited edition vinyl, with all proceeds benefitting Gilda’s Club NYC. The organization, which provides communities for those diagnosed with cancer, is named after comedian Gilda Radner, who passed away from the disease at the age of 43 in 1989.
Run the Jewels’ Run the Jewels 2, Primus’ 1990 debut Frizzle Fry and Green’s 1977 LP The Belle Album will get the pink vinyl treatment, with the special reissues available at retailers nationwide. This is the second year for the Ten Bands One Cause program; last year, Against Me!, Courtney Barnett, Jason Isbell and more aligned with the cause, which raised $30,000 for Gilda’s Club NYC.
“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 in a statement. “I am honored to be a part of 10 bands One Cause benefitting Gilda’s Club NYC.”
