Charity single

The Great Divide is a Liverpool based guitar band who are planning to release a single to coincide with the Pope’s visit to the UK. The song is a comment on religion in the 21st century and all profits from UK sales will be donated to a secular based charity that works with victims of child abuse (for example, NAPAC).

You can listen to a rough mix of the song at http://www.soundcloud.com/thegreatdivide. The song will be released in a downloadable format on 13 September. In order to maximise publicity and enable the track to chart as high as possible, the band is encouraging people to download the track on a specific date.

The band feel the song has the ability to cross over in to the mainstream of popular music and is an ideal platform to promote the secular message, stimulate debate and engage young people.

(The band is not associated with Shropshire Humanist Group – for further information contact Chris Jones.)
