Editor’s note: Buckcherry is helping the victims of the oil spill catastrophe by donating proceeds of their new song to NRDC’s Gulf Coast recovery fund.
As musicians who have the benefit of the spotlight from time to time, we feel it is our duty to aid in raising awareness and financial support to help remedy the awful situation in the Gulf Of Mexico.
I see what's happening on the news everyday and how it only gets worse. I think of my future and my children's future and we need to do something. My band, Buckcherry, wrote a song called "Our World" for our upcoming album. The song touches upon the environmental crisis that plagues the world every day.
A few weeks after writing and recording the song, the oil spill occurred. We recently went back into the studio to re-write the lyrics based on what was happening in the Gulf. We released this version exclusively on iTunes and are donating the proceeds to those affected by this disaster. People can also visit www.buckcherry.com to donate to the cause.
It is so important that each and every one of us do what we can to help those out whose lives have been harshly impacted by the oil spill.
– Josh Todd, Buckcherry lead singer/songwriter
