Ten Bands One Cause Returns For The 8th Year

Ten Bands One Cause Returns For The 8th Year

Following last year’s miniature version due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, Ten Bands One Cause has now returned with a full slate of pink vinyl releases. 

In support of Red Door Community (formerly known as Gilda’s Club NYC), Ten Bands One Cause releases limited edition pressings on pink vinyl of which a portion of the proceeds are donated to the charity. Red Door Community is a nonprofit whose mission is to create a free resource for cancer support for anyone battling cancer as well as their families. Red Door Community plans to expand to reach more individuals than ever to provide services and empower anyone and everyone impacted by cancer.  

Previous participants include Metallica, John  Prine, Run The Jewel, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Sturgill Simpson, and many more. This year’s releases are as impressive as ever with pink exclusives from Bush, Grandaddy, Less Than Jake, Minus The Bear, Plain White T’s, Primal Scream, Allman Brothers Band, The Hold Steady, Tom Tom Club and Umphrey’s McGee

Many of these artists have had personal experiences driving them while others consider music and healing akin to bread and butter. Jim Fairchild of Grandaddy discusses their involvement saying, “Grandaddy is honored to participate in Ten Bands One Cause. Doing something we love and having it help foster healing, conversation and community for people living through cancer is about as positive as music can be. Thank you Red Door Community for your powerful work.” Minus The Bear’s Cory Murchy recalls the battle his Mother fought and ultimately succumbed to, “In honor of Cheryl, Gilda and the millions of others that have had to or will face this truly difficult reality, KEEP GOING.”

Chris Frantz and Tina Wymouth from Tom Tom Club state, “We had a chance to meet and dine with Gilda Radner back in 1979 at the height of her SNL fame. She was wonderfully sweet and kind to us, as she was to everyone. Tom Tom Club feels honored to help support Red Door Community with sales from our “Downtown Rockers” EP on beautiful  pink vinyl. Additionally, Andy Farag of Umphrey’s McGee comments, “We feel truly fortunate to do what we do. To support the cause and help out those fighting cancer just by rereleasing an album… that’s a no brainer.
