Special (COVID-19) Edition Features 4 (Not 10) Artists Celebrating 7th Year Of Beloved Pink Vinyl Initiative For Gilda's Club NYC
Ten Bands re-issue their albums on limited edition pink vinyl, all for one cause. This is the 7th year for the initiative that has raised over $250,000 for Gilda's Club NYC, an organization that provides community support for both those diagnosed with cancer and their caretakers. It is named after comedian Gilda Radner, who passed away from cancer at the age of 43 in 1989. In response to the coronavirus outbreak, they have transitioned their in-person cancer support program to a virtual program to continue to provide free services to cancer patients who are among the most vulnerable populations of this pandemic.
This year's set is a modified "special edition" with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic featuring 4 (not 10) fantastic titles by much-loved artists, including, Fitz and the Tantrums' Pickin' Up The Pieces 10th Anniversary (Dangerbird), Brian Fallon's Local Honey (Lesser Known Records), Twin Peaks' Side A (Grand Jury), and Chiodos' All's Well That Ends Well 15th Anniversary (Equal Vision), each to be released on 10" or 12" pink vinyl packages.
All's Well That Ends Well is the debut album by post-hardcore band Chiodos, released through Equal Vision Records in July 2005.
Determined to avoid categorization, the quintet leap from genre to genre, often in the breadth of a single song. The lovely keyboard 'Prelude' that opens the set in no way prepares listeners for the metal/hard rock blast of 'All Nereids Beware' that follows, until it returns to add classical edges between the roar. Two more such lovely 'Interludes' further bisect the set, and in between times, the group unleash ten numbers that swing from melodic punk to emo, hardcore to grunge metal. The songs are exceedingly complex, involving a series of shifts in time signatures, genres, and moods along the way. Harmonies suddenly overtake gruff, growled vocals, metal riffs are unexpectedly supplanted by swooping keyboards, while delicate numbers abruptly transform into driving rockers, and vice versa. It's these unexpected twists and turns, fits and starts, that define the band's sound. There's still no label for such a style, but eventually Chiodos will be big enough that someone will have to invent one.
