Rock the Cause Records, the same label that released the #1 selling song 'Clouds' by Zach Sobiech, is pleased to debut Even When I’m Gone - the new single from Quietdrive.
Even When I’m Gone will be released 9.3.13 on Rock the Cause Records to raise awareness and support during National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month which takes place during September 2013.
Even When I’m Gone was written for and inspired by Michigan-born Kendal Lividini, a 17-year-old girl who lost her life to Acute Myelogenous Leukemia in 2011, and whose dream was to share her story in an effort to bring awareness and a cure for childhood cancer. Her parents re-telling of Kendal’s strength and bravery in the face of terminal illness, led to Minnesota based band, Quietdrive, writing and delivering an emotionally charged anthem on par with the likes of U2, Coldplay and Snow Patrol.
With the help of distribution partner, The Orchard, “Even When I’m Gone” will be available on September 3, 2013 through digital retailers worldwide.
All net proceeds from the sale of Even When I’m Gone are being donated to the Team Kendal Kidz and Children’s Cancer Research Fund to find a cure for pediatric cancer, and to Rock the Cause, a music based non-profit that empowers young people to get involved in their communities.
A live performance by Quietdrive honoring the memory of teenager Kendal Lividini will be held at the Third Annual Team Kendal Kidz Concert at the Royal Oak Music Theatre on Saturday, September 7, 2013 for more details please visit the event page of Team Kendal Kidz.
