More music will be available in the coming days so please keep checking back for updates at the website of Exes For Eyes.
Exes for Eyes have recorded the following video to explain the reasons behind the campaign:
Big James (vocalist of Exes For Eyes) comments the situation with these words:
"This picture was taken at Heavy Montreal, right after one of the most important performances/moments of Exes For Eyes' career. Josh was there showing us love and support, and now it's our turn to show HIM love and support through some difficult times.
Back in March, Josh was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myelogenous Leukemia). After several treatments, chemo, and a stem cell transplant, Josh and his family were informed in December that the Leukemia had returned. The doctors are doing what ever they can to help Josh, but some of the treatments are not covered by OHIP...one of the treatments will cost almost 7000 dollars.
We've banded together with some close friends in the scene to help raise money for these medical expenses. Several bands (including Exes For Eyes, Endast, The Great Sabatini, Last Scattering, Planet Eater, Out Of The Ruins, Sparky, Ninja Spy etc.) will all be selling their album for $1.00 here at ExesForEyes.com with all proceeds going towards Josh's treatment for the duration of his GOFUNDME campaign. Keep checking back, as more music will added in the coming days. On top of purchasing music, if you wish to make additional contributions directly to Josh's campaign, please click HERE."
