NEIL TURBIN'S DEATHRIDERS (featuring original ANTHRAX vocalist Neil Turbin) and IMAGIKA have been added to the Thrash Against Cancer benefit, which will be headlined by TESTAMENT, on July 9 at The Pound SF outdoor amphitheatre in San Francisco, California. VICIOUS RUMORS, LAAZ ROCKIT, HIRAX and MUDFACE will also take part in this historic gathering of musicians.
The proceeds from the show will aid in the financial recovery for families dealing with life-altering medical diagnosis. Among the families that will benefit from the concert are Keith and Brandy Regan, whose son, Cole Regan, was born with cancer (leukemia / AML) and survived up until three months short of his second birthday before passing away on July 28, 2004. The show will also help other families who have who have children with pediatric cancer and are in severe need of help. These families struggle on a daily basis to pay for medicine and co-pays, not to mention household bills and other expenses, to keep their hopes and futures at a functioning level while battling to keep their child alive.
