METALLICA, MASTODON, GWAR To Reissue Albums On Pink Vinyl For Fourth Annual 'Ten Bands One Cause'

METALLICA, MASTODON and GWAR are among the artists who will reissue their music on pink vinyl for the fourth annual Ten Bands One Cause. The initiative has raised over $144,000 for Gilda's Club NYC, an organization that provides community support for both those diagnosed with cancer and their caretakers. It is named after comedian Gilda Radner, who passed away from cancer at the age of 43 in 1989.

This year's releases include pink pressings of METALLICA's "Hardwired… To Self-Destruct", MASTODON's "Emperor Of Sand" and GWAR's "The Blood Of Gods". They will be available for purchase at retailers nationwide wherever vinyl is sold, and proceeds will sponsor Gilda's Club NYC.

"The daily routine of life now includes doctors' visits, weekly treatments and unprecedented medical expenses," said Gilda's Club's chief executive. "The new 'routine' is difficult to manage and navigate alone. But at Gilda's Club NYC, we help cancer patients and their families learn how to live with a cancer diagnosis — through our support groups, educational lectures, and classes. It's important to know you aren't alone and at Gilda's Club, you never are."
