“As a person who believes we should live shame-free and supported by our fellow earthlings no matter our lot, I’m so proud to be sending dough and attention to Gilda’s Club. I lost my best friend to cancer only a few years ago, and I feel deeply for any person who is struggling to navigate the mad chaos that it can wreak on your life and work. I’m so proud to be a part of this.” – Amanda Palmer
“We all know cancer is no joke but what we all don’t (luckily) know is that when cancer hits you or your family, things change forever. When confronted with the beast, it makes one feel helpless and empty, with an urge to fight it with every inch of one’s body! Lacuna Coil has proudly decided to support Gilda’s Club NYC because together we can really make a difference by providing support to those fighting cancer. In exchange for your support, you get great music and a beautiful pink vinyl to add to your collection! Are you in? We can make a change!” -Cristina Scabbia, Lacuna Coil
“Like many of you, our lives have been affected by this scourge and we have lost loved ones to the brutality of which is cancer. SUNN O))) is proud to participate and to be able to transform a part of our musical vision into aid for cancer patients & their families through this campaign. We sincerely hope this effort helps even a single person, it will be an honor”. – Sunn O)))
Following is a full list of the 2019 “Ten Bands One Cause” titles and their release dates:
The Ten Bands One Cause program, which was founded in 2014 and includes notable past participants such as Run The Jewels, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sturgill Simpson, Modest Mouse, Jason Isbell, The Black Keys, and Anthrax, coincides with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
Lily Safani, CEO, Gilda’s Club NYC said, “When someone gets diagnosed with cancer it impacts everyone who is close to them – in many different ways. The daily routine of life now includes doctors’ visits, weekly treatments and unprecedented medical expenses. The new “routine” is difficult to manage and navigate alone. But at Gilda’s Club NYC, we help cancer patients and their families learn how to live with a cancer diagnosis – through our support groups, educational lectures, and classes. It’s important to know you aren’t alone and at Gilda’s Club, you never are.”

Over 12,000 individuals are served annually by our unique program. Gilda’s Club NYC was founded in memory of Gilda Radner, the talented comedienne and first cast member of Saturday Night Live (SNL).
