October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month - Here is a ultra-cool project announcement from the non-profit The Keep A Breast Foundation.
The Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB), an organization dedicated to empowering young people around the world with breast health education and support, has partnered with Rude Records to curate an alternative music compilation entitled ‘Music for Boobies’, with proceeds going to support KAB’s vision of eradicating breast cancer for future generations. Launching this December, the collection will include songs performed by globally-known music acts in collaboration with visionaries in the alternative rock community.
“Having spent countless years on the ground at Warped Tour educating about breast cancer prevention and early detection, Keep A Breast has always considered the alternative music scene an invaluable partner in engaging a young audience” said Shaney jo Darden, Founder of KAB. “As we celebrate our 15th anniversary, we’re really excited to join forces with Rude Records on the ‘Music for Boobies’ compilation, which will feature many of our favorite artists we've met over the years.”
The current list of global supporters generously backing this initiative include top industry record labels such as Epitaph, Side One Dummy, The Orchard, Sumerian, Pure Noise, Equal Vision, The Agency Group, The Noise Cartel, Earshot Media and magazines Kerrang! and Alternative Press.
The compilation will be released on worldwide digital outlets March 2016, with pre-orders launched this December, as well as a first instant free single, available at musicforboobies.com. 50% of all proceeds garnered through the sale of the compilation will go to support KAB’s ongoing efforts. A full track list is expected to be released in the coming weeks.
