British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN have released the following statement: “We are deeply saddened to report …
Vocalist Nick Holmes British gothic metal pioneers PARADISE LOST will take part in Heavy Metal Truants, a charity bike ride from London to Donington, United Kingdom in June.
Comments Holmes: “Heavy Metal Truants is the world’s first heavy metal charity cycle ride from London to Donington Park! And as a huge fan of both cycling and heavy metal, I jumped at the chance to be involved in this event, and hopefully collect a ton of cash from all you generous folk out there!
“In order to take part, we will be doing from 26 to 83 grueling miles a day, come rain or shine, so surely that deserves a donation?
“I’ve chosen to donate all the money I raise to Nordoff Robbins. You should know all about them. If you don’t, please take time to check them out and the great work they do: Nordoff-Robbins.org.
“Please give generously. It’s really appreciated, and even if not for me — think of the kids!”
