Pearl Jam and Buckcherry aid Gulf Oil Spill relief!
Pearl Jam have made a video for the song 'Amoungst the Waves' which will be availible on iTunes 7/6. They are releasing the video to raise money for Conservation International's Ocean Campaign.
And Buckcherry made a video for their song 'Our World' and debuted it on Larry King. Here is the official statement from Lead singer Josh Todd.
"As musicians who have the benefit of the spotlight from time to time, weÂ feel it is our duty to aid in raising awareness and financial support toÂ help remedy the awful situation in the Gulf Of Mexico.
I see what's happening on the news everyday and how it only gets worse. Â IÂ think of my future and my children's future and we need to do something. Â My band, Buckcherry, wrote a song called "Our World" for our upcoming album. Â The song touches upon the environmental crisis that plagues the world every day.
A few weeks after writing and recording the song, the oil spillÂ occurred. Â We recently went back into the studio to re-write the lyricsÂ based on what was happening in the Gulf. Â We released this versionÂ exclusively on iTunes and are donating the proceeds to those affected byÂ this disaster. Â People can also visit www.buckcherry.com to donate to theÂ cause.
It is so important that each and every one of us do what we can to helpÂ those out whose lives have been harshly impacted by the oil spill."
