"Dedicated to our heroes currently fighting and those who have sadly passed away", Misfit Music's Help Our Heroes track both supports the troops and questions why they are still in Iraq and Afghanistan…
To a military drum beat and the sad sound of a female loved one singing `When you come home…I'll never cry again', the Misfits burst in with the rap…
`We're at war…What are we fighting for?
Where's the law? To stop the fighting 'cause
Do we pause? And let this keep on happening
So let's applaud
Our troops on the field that are battling…
Now bring the troops back home…'
"The reason behind Misfit Music producing this track and deciding to push it, is due to members of the group currently having friends and family situated in Iraq and Afghanistan" says Misfit Music's Briggzy "The aim of the track is to build awareness of how real their situation is. Any money raised is better than no money at all.
"The track has been passed onto families of those currently at war with glowing feedback being received" he adds "The amount of support received back from the song has been overwhelming with people demanding that the track be released."
Help For Heroes will be promoted on radio stations across the UK as well as on a music video to be aired on Sky TV's Channel Aka. There's a rough cut of the track and video already up on YouTube which has already had 1,500 hits in a week, but the full track will be on sale next moth on ITunes, with all proceeds going to www.supportoursoldiers.co.uk
