This week Ten Bands re-issue their albums on limited edition pink vinyl, all for one cause. This is the third year for the initiative that helped raise $65,000 for Gilda’s Club NYC, an organization that provides community support for both those diagnosed with cancer and their caretakers. It is named after comedian Gilda Radner, who passed away from the disease at the age of 43 in 1989.
This year’s limited pink vinyl are from Anthrax, The Black Keys, Courtney Barnett, Ed Sheeran, Jim Breuer & The Loud & Rowdy, My Chemical Romance, NOFX, Opeth, Pixies and Red Hot Chili Peppers. The releases are available for purchase starting this week, and proceeds will sponsor Gilda's Club NYC.

PASSENGER - Young As The Morning, Old As The Sea - Nettwerk Records
Young As The Morning, Old As The Sea is the 8th studio album from Mike Rosenberg the Brighton-born singer/songwriter better known as Passenger. A prolific achievement for an artist who is still only just turned 30 last year. The album was recorded at a combination of Roundhead Studios in Auckland, a studio lovingly built from scratch by Neil Finn and back at Linear studios in Sydney.
BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN - Chapter and Verse - Sony
Chapter and Verse is the audio companion to Bruce Springsteen's autobiography, Born to Run, arriving in bookstores September 27th, 2016. Five of the album's eighteen tracks are previously unreleased. Springsteen selected the songs on Chapter and Verse to reflect the themes and sections of 'Born to Run.' The compilation begins with two tracks from The Castiles, featuring a teenaged Springsteen on guitar and vocals, and ends with the title track from 2012's Wrecking Ball. The collected songs trace Springsteen's musical history from its earliest days, telling a story that parallels the one in the book, and is a must for any Bruce Springsteen fan.
DEVENDRA BANHART - Ape In Pink Marble - Nonesuch
Nonesuch Records releases Devendra Banhart's new album, Ape In Pink Marble. The album, Banhart's ninth, was written, produced, arranged, and recorded in Los Angeles by the singer / songwriter / guitarist with his longtime collaborators Noah Georgeson and Josiah Steinbrick, both of whom also worked on Banhart's most recent album, Mala (2013).
BOXED IN - Melt - Nettwerk Records
Following the critically acclaimed self-titled debut that NME said “will enhance your life," Boxed In releases Melt which includes the single "Jist". Boxed In has garnered support from BBC Radio 1 and 6 and tastemaker LA radio station KCRW, who chose Boxed In as an “Artist You Should Know” for 2015. With comparisons to LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip, Boxed In is intellectual without being pretentious, wide-ranging yet accessible and will unite club and indie-rock crowds in a way so few can do.
EVERY TIME I DIE - Low Teens - Epitaph
Buffalo, New York's Every Time I Die have never been a typical hardcore act. The band have been forging their own musical and ideological path via their distinctive brand of aggressive music and unstoppable live shows. Those who have caught a show understand the powers of Keith Buckley (vocals), Andy Williams (guitar), Jordan Buckley (guitar), Daniel Davison (drums) and Steve Micciche (bass) onstage. Each performer is wildly different from the other, making each show experience truly unique. While entering their 18th year as a band, Every Time I Die continues to push the hardcore paradigm. With 7 albums under their belt Every Time I Die continue to push themselves further into brighter territory as a legendary band. Fans can expect more of that with Low Teens.
TOO CLOSE TO TOUCH - Haven't Been Myself - Epitaph
Too Close To Touch are back with their sophomore album , Haven't Been Myself, the follow-up to 2015’s Nerve Endings. On Nerve Endings, TOO CLOSE TO TOUCH made their debut with a deeply melodic breed of post-hardcore shot through with soulful vocals. Now with their second full-length the band expands that sound with fiercer energy, harder-hitting arrangements, and even more potently charged material. The Lexington, Kentucky based band, featuring vocalist Keaton Pierce, guitarists Mason Marble and Thomas Kidd, bassist Travis Moore, and drummer Kenneth Downey recorded Haven’t Been Myself with producer Erik Ron (Issues, Set It Off) in his North Hollywood, CA studio. “I was in a really dark place and wanted to make [the album] as cathartic as possible. This album was a pretty tough one to write, but we all gave it everything we have and didn’t hold back. I wouldn’t have it any other way,” says Pierce. TOO CLOSE TO TOUCH are now appearing on the Cyclops Stage at Vans Warped Tour ’16, delivering a powerful live show that heightens their unbridled intensity and centers on close connection with the crowd. And both onstage and on record, the band strives to provide the same catharsis that they’ve found through channeling their pain into song. “When people go through extremely intense experiences they look to music to help them escape, so it’s always been a mission of ours to put out the kind of music that might help in that way.”
BEACH SLANG - A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings - Polyvinyl Records
Less than a year after their debut full-length landed on year-end lists from the likes of AV Club, Paste, SPIN, and Noisey, and earned praise from sources as diverse as Pitchfork to People magazine, Beach Slang return with their sophomore album A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings. Written and recorded in the midst of a relentless touring schedule that found the band selling out sweat drenched shows across the U.S. and Europe, A Loud Bash is exactly what its title implies -- a raucous collection of shout-along punk rock anthems anchored by frontman James Alex's trademark heart-on-sleeve lyricism. Also available as an Indie Exclusive Limited Edition White Starburst and Reflex Blue Vinyl.
MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE - The Black Parade / Living with Ghosts (The 10th Anniversary Edition) - Reprise
The set contains a reissue of My Chemical Romance's double-platinum, genre-defining album The Black Parade, which was originally released by Reprise in October 2006, and features the band's multiplatinum hit "Welcome To The Black Parade." The new edition 'The Black Parade / Living with Ghosts (The 10th Anniversary Edition)' also includes 11 previously unreleased demos and outtakes from the original recording session with producer Rob Cavallo. Among them are "The Five of Us Are Dying," an early version of "Welcome To The Black Parade," and demos of the album tracks "Mama," "Disenchanted," and two versions of "House of Wolves." Five tracks, "Party At The End Of The World," "My Way Home Is Through You," "Not That Kind of Girl," "Emily," and "All The Angels," have never been released in any form.
AUBRIE SELLERS - New City Blues - Warner Bros.
From the cutlery in the blender indictment of surface beauty “Paper Doll” to the Lone Star drive of “Just To Be With You” and the tumbledown melody of “Sit Here and Cry,” this is a high energy box cutter of emotion: 14 songs marked by the bite and punch of smart girls who know there’s more to life than a cold beer and cut-offs. “I tell people there’s not a lot of happy songs,” the Texas/Nashville hybrid cautions. “But they’re not unhappy songs, either. It’s life... the way it is, and what’s wrong with that?” There’s a definite viscerality to New City Blues. From the yearning title track to the slow-building “Loveless Rolling Stone,” the sense of displacement marking so many young people uncertain about the future tempers the pools of guitar lines, the way her voice has just the slightest ache when she finds a note’s center. “
JOHN PRINE - For Better, or Worse - Oh Boy
The follow up to John Prine's Grammy winning record, In Spite of Ourselves, For Better, or Worse features duets with Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, Alison Krauss, Susan Tedeschi, Lee Ann Womack & More. “I’ve always been a sucker for a duet, you know?” says John Prine in his Chicago-infused Kentucky accent. “I always liked it on TV when two people that didn’t ordinarily sing together would do somethin’ like ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ and ham it up, kinda jokin’ around with it.” He especially likes duets when they are sung by a couple. “A lot of character comes out when a man and a woman are singin’ back and forth—unless it’s one of those modern recordings when they haven’t even met each other and they’re both singin’ to tracks in the studio,” he says. For his new album, “For Better, or Worse,” his second collection of duets with female singers, they all came to him, in Nashville. “We did it live,” he says. “Starin’ in each other’s eyes.” It was the same for this record’s 1999 predecessor, “In Spite of Ourselves,” which has become one of Mr. Prine’s bestloved works, despite being mostly cover versions of old-school country songs. “The kind they don’t play on the radio anymore,”
