Sophie Lancaster's family stated that they were 'extremely grateful' for the support from Words That Burn's fans.
Last week, Words That Burn unveiled their interpretation of Billy Eilish's 'Everything I Wanted' on streaming platforms. Today, they are releasing a video of the cover, in order to further aid the Sophie Lancaster Charity Foundation.
The video was produced by Cosmopalace, and features a montage of homemade videos that were submitted by fans from around the world where they can be seen expressing themselves to the music.
The release of the video is in conjunction with the 13th anniversary of the controversial death of Sophie Lancaster, who sadly lost her life on August 24th, 2007 following a horrific victimised attack on her and her boyfriend by a number of teenage boys in Lancashire, UK on the 11th of August, 2007.
“When we finally decided on the concept of the video we spoke to our management about doing something meaningful," the band note in a statement. "The Sophie Lancaster Foundation is a voice that we as a band and a lot of people around the world who are involved in subcultures in one way or another can relate to.
"SLF is very well known to people in the Rock/Metal/Goth and Underground community, and are massively respected for the amazing work they do. It is a huge honour for us to be working on this project and especially to get support from Sophie’s family.”
The band are urging for donations to be made to The Sophie Lancaster Foundation with any contributions welcomed be it large or small, by texting SOPH05 (Your Amount) to 70070.
