GODHEAD frontman Jason Miller has written a song about the tsunami tragedy and is currently assembling a group of musicians to record the song, with all proceeds from the recording to be donated to the relief funds.
Commented Miller: "In the days after the tsunami hit the coasts of Southeast Asia, I like most people was glued to the television watching the horror unfold. I felt completely powerless. As the death toll continued to mount, and the threat of disease hovered, humanity reached out. I gave the maximum amount that I could afford, but I still felt like I had done nothing. Then, one morning, after a restless night trying to figure out what I could do, I wrote the song 'Forever In Our Hearts'. I am not a celebrity, but I do know quite a few, and I thought if I could get enough people interested in this song, maybe together we could raise more money and make more of a difference."
Jason has spent the past few days contacting friends and asking them to help reach to people and little by little the project is coming together.
"This is not about any one artist," said Miller. "This is about the whole music community coming together to help."
So far, Miller has received verbal confirmations from members of EVANESCENCE, JANE'S ADDICTION, 311, AVRIL LAVIGNE, PAPA ROACH, TRAPT, HOOBASTANK, and A PERFECT CIRCLE. Others are in the process of getting confirmed.
The song is currently being tracked at a Los Angeles studio and plans exist to complete the recording with a huge chorus recording by Sunday, January 23.
