Austrian metal duo CUESTACK has announced plans for the “We Won’t Let Music Die” campaign, beginning with their latest single, “Stronger,” available today.
CUESTACK will donate all profits from the single, radio royalties and upcoming debut album, Diagnosis Human, to the German fundraiser #AlarmstufeRot, which helps music industry professionals in need.
“Everybody is missing live shows, festivals and tours,” the band says. “But industry professionals have especially suffered from the current situation. Over three million people are out of work and over €265 million was lost last year in Germany alone.”
When CUESTACK’s Martin Kames and Bernth Brodträger saw the amazing work #AlarmstufeRot was doing last year, the pair made the decision to use Diagnosis Human as a means to contribute to the group’s mission to help those professionals in dire need.
Through the purchase of a “Live Music Relief Kit” containing the album, an exclusive crew backstage pass, poster and personal thank you card signed by CUESTACK, fans can directly help those who have lost work due to the global pandemic. Supporters of the campaign will also receive an exclusive bonus crew shirt. “Live Music Relief Kit” pre-orders are available at https://bit.ly/3uf1poI
and will begin shipping at the campaign’s end on August 31.
“It’s in our hands to bring live music back,” Kames and Brodträger say. “Let’s do our part to help!”
When the worlds of eccentric lighting / VFX designer Martin Kames and shred guitar content creator Bernth Brodträger collide, explosive music and art manifest in the form of CUESTACK. An unmistakable blend of metal and electronic music with well established sonic trademarks is the result, paired with an industrial, dystopian corporate identity that is ever-present in the band’s cinematic music videos and artworks.
After their metal song “Through the Nightwith” David Hasselhoff went viral on youtube couple months ago, CUESTACK are now donating all profits of their upcoming album Diagnosis:Human to the starving live music industry.
The brand new single “Stronger” is released today and the music video is an impressive and entertaining tribute to all live-music professionals!
