Hey Everyone,

It’s finally time to reveal the track listing for the benefit album and concert for Shayne Miel from the Future Kings Of Nowhere (, who is currently fighting stage IV lymphoma (cancer).

First let me thank all the musicians who jumped at the opportunity to be part of this album. So many in fact, that it’s 3 CDs, 54 songs, over 200 minutes of music!

It’s a beautiful thing to see so many people come together to help someone in need.

The albums will be titled, “This Album Kills Cancer”, and will soon be available for download, with 100% of the album cost going directly to Shayne to pay his medical bills.

By the way, Shayne is getting better as a result of the chemo. You can read all about it at his blog:
