Shawn of Rockstar Radio (Hamilton, Montana's KBAZ-FM) recently conducted an interview with vocalist Josh Todd of California rockers BUCKCHERRY. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
BUCKCHERRY has teamed with the Natural Resources Defense Council to send all the proceeds from sales of their new song "Our World" to the NRDC's Gulf Recovery Fund. A new version of the song, which is taken from the band's upcoming album "All Night Long", will be made available for purchase as an iTunes exclusive. All the proceeds will go directly to Gulf Coast non-profit groups working to help people, wildlife and fragile ecosystems recover from the disaster.
Todd said in a statement, "The song touches upon environmental crises that plague the world every day. A few weeks after writing and recording the song, the oil spill occurred. We recently went back into the studio to re-write the lyrics based on what was happening in the Gulf. We released this version exclusively on iTunes and are donating the proceeds to NRDC to help aid those affected by this disaster."
The band has also posted a new video online for the song that documents the timeline and facts about the disaster.
"All Night Long", BUCKCHERRY's fifth studio album, is due out August 3.
The Natural Resources Defense Council is a nonprofit organization of scientists, lawyers and environmental specialists dedicated to protecting public health and the environment. Founded in 1970, it has 1.3 million members worldwide.
The NRDC has had a rapid-fire response team on the ground in the Gulf documenting the environmental impacts of the oil spill and advocating for local communities. NRDC attorneys and scientists are also working to hold BP accountable for the damage it is causing.
