The Walkmen have surprised their fans three weeks early with a special $5 price for their new record, You & Me, due out August 19. And that’s not all — all proceeds are set to benefit cancer research and treatment via AmieStreet.com as part of their Download to Make a Difference series.
"All donations go to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in honor of Luca Vasallo, a friend to the band and a current patient who is seven months old and doing a great job fighting a very difficult disease," claimed Peter Bauer of The Walkmen. "This is a very good organization that certainly deserves the attention" To buy You & Me for the special $5 price, visit AmieStreet.com/thewalkmen.
This is a class act and a model that more artists of today should consider following. Not only are they offering it a low price, but it’s going to a worthy cause — and they are still offering the physical product come August 19 via Gigantic Music.
