Oceans Premiere New Song “Skin” From Upcoming New EP “Far From Composure”

British progressive/alternative hybrid Oceans have revealed their new single “Skin”. The song is taken from their upcoming EP Far From Composure which will be released on March 13th.

The band commented “The song ‘Skin’ is a reflection of living day to day life with an atopic skin condition, and the self-confidence issues it can cause. ‘Skin’ talks of looking into the future and looking past the harder times and in an ideal world, would help to raise awareness for atopic conditions as they are very overlooked by doctors, yet from experience they cause a lifetime of discomfort.”

Monuments Releases "Memoirs" Single To Raise Money For Cancer Patient

Monuments has released the new “Memoirs” single online, which is being sold to help defray the cost of bills for a cancer patient. The single can be purchased at this location or streamed in the player below. Monuments also commented:

“We will be releasing Memoirs via bandcamp as of 20th October. All proceeds will be going to our good friend Laura, who recently found out she has a condition called Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (or PMP), a rare form of cancer of the appendix that effects less than one in a million people. We will be releasing Memoirs to raise money for her as there are very few people in the world who are able to treat this condition and none are in the UK due to its rarity. She will have to travel abroad for the treatment and it will be extremely expensive.

“There will be a minimum donation of £2 for the track, however it’ll be possible to give as much as you want, so please give generously. We would like to give a big shout out to Neema Askari, Joe Garret, John G. Sprich, James Monteith, Mel Schmidt, Steve Joh and everyone at Century Media for making this possible so quickly, Thank you. We’d like to raise awareness of this condition, because of it’s extreme rarity, it is often misdiagnosed. For further information please read here.”

The Agonist Vocalist Alissa White-Gluz Wins Peta2 "Libby" Award

If there’s one thing that hits a sour note with Alissa White-Gluz, the powerful voice of Québécois metal band The Agonist, it’s animal abuse. The singer uses her voice to raise awareness about animal suffering every chance she gets, and that’s one of the reasons why she’s snagged a Libby Award in the category of Breakthrough Artist from peta2, PETA’s youth division. The sixth annual Libby Awards (“Libby” is for “liberation”) honors animal-friendly people and products.

White-Gluz took a stand against the annual seal slaughter in her native Canada by shooting a striking peta2 ad that shows her above a photo of a baby seal who is about to be clubbed and reads, “Bang Your Own Head, Not a Seal’s.” She also sat down for an exclusive interview with peta2.

“The seal hunt is something I’m so ashamed to even be remotely associated with,” says the Canadian-born vocalist, who also discusses how grateful she is that she was raised vegetarian and has since gone vegan. “I’m shocked that it’s still going on and still encouraged by the government.”

White-Gluz has also spoken out against the fur industry, and she encourages everyone to buy only cruelty-free personal care products.

Twenty-nine Libby Awards will be given out this year, recognizing everything from the best cruelty-free cosmetics company to peta2’s favorite animal-friendly celebrity. Each winner will receive a framed certificate and be featured on peta2.com. Winners were chosen by peta2 based on equal consideration of three factors: the number of votes received, the quality of the animal-friendly product or the nominees’ enthusiasm for being animal-friendly, and feedback from the nominees’ fans.
