New York, NY (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
Renowned rock musicians Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society, formerly with Ozzy Osbourne), Morgan Rose (Sevendust, Call Me No One), Kevin Martin (Candlebox, The Gracious Few), John "JD" DeServio (Black Label Society, Cycle Of Pain), and The Infinite Staircase have collaborated to create a song to raise money for people affected by Hurricane Sandy. The song, entitled "The Pride," will be available as an iTunes exclusive on February 5th with 100% of the proceeds to benefit The Carl V. Bini Memorial Fund rebuilding efforts.
"These are our streets, this was our home," said co-writer, singer and guitarist, Lenny Cerzosie of The Infinite Staircase. “We’re going to take care of our own and that’s what the song really comes down to, it’s all about the pride."
"Living on the Jersey shore my entire life, I was mortified at the after effects of Hurricane Sandy," says JD DeServio of Black Label Society. "It was heart breaking to see all the lives that were affected throughout the tri-state area, and hopefully the song will benefit some of those unfortunate people."
The Carl V. Bini Memorial Fund has been actively providing assistance to those in need since the storm hit. Initiatives have included the distribution of $25,000 through its gift card program, purchasing building supplies to help restore homes for over 100 families, the organization of volunteer clean-up efforts, and the opening of Carl's House, a relief center where victims will be able to receive free assistance through case management.
“This song will help people heal and rebuild in so many ways,” said Massimo DiDonna, co-founder of The Carl V. Bini Memorial Fund. “It will not only help raise funds for the region, it will remind people everywhere of the inner strength and pride of the people affected by Sandy. We are grateful to have been approached but such prominent artists in the rock industry and we thank them for what they’ve created.”
All of the musicians donated their efforts. The track was recorded at Architekt Music Studios in Butler, NJ and is being released through Vanity Music Group. A preview of the song as well as the ability to pre-order are available by clicking here.
