Peter Bjorn and John, Yonder On Malaria Benefit Album


Peter Bjorn and John
RED Distribution has produced a benefit compilation for the non-profit organization Malaria No More. Indie Rocks! A Benefit Album For Malaria No More features exclusive tracks by Peter Bjorn and John, Yonder Mountain String Band, Great Lake Swimmers, Third Eye Blind, as well as tracks by The Walkmen, Juliette Lewis, and Youssou N'Dour. The digital-only album release launched today on Amie Street, with a four week exclusivity period. RED and Amie Street will be donating 100% of the proceeds to Malaria No More.

Malaria No More is determined to end malaria deaths in Africa by 2015. Malaria kills a child in Africa every 30 seconds, but it doesn't have to be this way — malaria is a treatable and preventable disease. Luckily, the world is mobilizing to end the disease. In the past few years, new tools and increased awareness have pumped new energy into the fight against malaria. Individuals all over the world are helping parents keep their children safe from the deadly bite of a malarial mosquito with a simple, $10 mosquito net. Millions of individuals across the globe are helping to make malaria no more once and for all.

In releasing Indie Rocks! A Benefit Album For Malaria No More, RED, Amie Street, and all of the artists who have generously donated their music will significantly reduce malaria infections and help make malaria-related deaths a thing of the past.
