The Oxegen-bound My Chemical Romnce have made ‘#SINGItForJapan’, a re-worked version of Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys album track ‘SING’, available on iTunes to raise funds for tsunami and earthquake relief.
“Ever since our first show there, My Chemical Romance have always shared a special connection with Japan,” says guitarist Ray Toro. “We received news of the events unfolding there while on tour and it affected us in a profound way. We were inspired by our fans to set to work on re-imagining ‘SING’ and to contact the dozens of musicians who donated their time and talent to help bring ‘#SINGItForJapan’ to life. Using classic Japanese themes in the orchestration, we hope we have honoured and paid tribute to the people of Japan.”
The band also have limited-edition t-shirts and lithographs up for grabs at singitforjapan.com, with all the proceeds going to the American Red Cross.
