A percentage of the revenue from the licensing and sales of the songs will go to Peters’ Love, Hope, Strength Foundation, which “leverages the power of music to expand the bone marrow donor registry.” Peters is a cancer survivor and the subject of a documentary, The Man in the Camo Jacket, directed by Russ Kendall and produced by Jonathan McHugh, Jonathan Platt, James Chippendale, Alex Colletti and Stash Slionski. The film chronicles Peters’ eight-year battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The Love Hope Strength Foundation, named after The Alarm’s 1985 anthem Strength, to date, has added over 150,000 individuals to the bone marrow donor registry and created over 3,100 potential life-saving matches for patients around the world.
These latest songs are vintage Peters: idealistic, impassioned, soaring. “They are very inspiring and motivating songs, and fantastic additions to our Artist Series,” says Killer Tracks VP of production, Carl Peel. “We are very excited to collaborate with Mike and support the work of his wonderful foundation.”
Killer Tracks celebrated the release of the four new songs at an exclusive event in Los Angeles that included a live performance by Peters.
“Killer Tracks has been great in supporting community organizations like The Guild of Music Supervisors and it’s inspiring that they are reaching out to classic artists like Mike Peters to create new music that enhances their catalog and gives back to a great cause, LHS,” notes U.S. Alarm co-manager Jonathan McHugh.”
