Monuments To Release “Memoirs” Benefit Single For Cancer Stricken Friend
Monuments will release a new benefit single for their track “Memoirs” on October 20th. Proceeds from the previously unreleased song will go towards medical costs incurred by a close friend of the band, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.
A trailer for the track has been posted below with band bassist Adam Swan sharing the following:
“Hi everyone! We will be releasing ‘Memoirs‘ via Bandcamp as of October 20th. All proceeds will be going to our good friend Laura, who recently found out she has a condition called Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (or PMP), a rare form of cancer of the appendix that affects less than one in a million people. We will be releasing ‘Memoirs‘ to raise money for her as there are very few people in the world who are able to treat this condition and none are in the UK due to its rarity.
She will have to travel abroad for the treatment and it will be extremely expensive. There will be a minimum donation of £2 for the track, however it’ll be possible to give as much as you want, so please give generously. We would like to give a big shout out to Neema Askari, Joe Garret, John Sprich, James Monteith, Mel Schmidt, Steve Joh and everyone at Century Media for making this possible so quickly. Thank you.”
A CD version of the song will be made available for purchase on the bands “Euroblast Tour“.
