I want to begin by saying thank you for your continued support of the Electronic Saviors:Industrial Music To Cure Cancer project. It means the world to me that you have supported all that this body of work stands for. We will be donating $10,000.00 to the wonderful charities: Gilda's Club of Western PA and Bone Marrow Foundation. This is especially important for me because of what today is. 5 years ago...May 1st, 2008, I embarked on a dark journey that I was afraid I would not survive. I was diagnosed with cancer and my whole world changed in a heartbeat. After surviving the treatments and surgeries, I created this project as a way to help those who had to go through suffering with cancer. The first volume of Electronic Saviors has sold out and is a highly sought after collectible. It raised over 20K and opened the doors for volume 2 which we called Recurrence. Once again, I wanted to focus on the feeling that most cancer patients have to deal with: the cancer coming back. We expanded to 6 discs (8 if you got that premium edition). We travelled to the Kinetik Festival and toured the US visiting several cities for release parties, while seeing the Saviors bands do some amazing live shows. It is with this that I want to open up submissions for the 3rd and final boxset, now called Remission. The focus this time will be on healing, joy and victory. We ask that the bands submit one song each. You can submit through www.electronicsaviors.com (coming soon) or email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always there are guidelines. We need exclusives and new songs will take importance over remixes. I would also like to thank all the bands, labels and charities involved in this project. Metropolis Records has been really fantastic in supporting ES and I am eternally grateful. Really, I couldn't do this without you guys and I love all of you. We have raised over 30K for charity and that number will only grow. As this is the final boxset, it is not the last ES release. We have plans on continuing with artists' cd and digital releases and maybe some smaller comps targeted at specific cancers. Today is my 5 year mark of surviving a tough battle and I hope you continue to join me for the next fight, whatever that may be.
Much love and respect,
