Dublin band Identity Parade, managed by former Saw Doctor John ‘Turps’ Burke, will release a new single to help fund a new project run by the Galway Rape Crisis Centre.
All profits from the sale of the single ‘Kicking Stones’, which is released tomorrow, will go directly into the manufacture of a 14 track 25th anniversary compilation album for the GRCC, to be released in December.
To launch the single Identity Parade will play three short gigs around Galway on Sunday at Zhivago Shop Street at 2.30pm, Zhivago Eyre Square Shopping Centre (3.30pm ), and Zhivago Galway Shopping Centre (4.30pm ).
The band’s progress throughout this marathon day will be filmed. Volunteers from the GRCC will also accompany the band.
The GRCC anniversary album, Friends Of The Galway Rape Crisis Centre, will feature music from The Saw Doctors, Sharon Shannon, The Waterboys, The Stunning, Identity Parade, Mairtín O’Connor, Cathal Hayden & Seamie O’Dowd, Cora & Breda Smyth, Padraig Stevens, Don Stiffe, Stacey Nolan, Keith Mullins, Larry Beau, and The Coonics.
The CD will cost €10 and be available from Zhivago and Xtra Vision.
