Believer Join Breast Cancer Awareness Fight with Limited Edition ‘The Brave’ T-Shirts

BelieverOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Metal Blade recording artists, those Christian thrashers in Believer, are charging hard for the cause. The band has partnered with artist Michael Rosner of Eye Level Studios for a limited edition, unisex, pink and black ‘The Brave” T-shirt that will be for sale through the month of October, with all of the proceeds from the sales of these fashionably metal tees benefiting breast cancer research, which is something vocalist/guitarist Kurt Bachmann knows a thing or two about, since he’s a cancer researcher who earned his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins. While most metalheads don’t sport pink, it’s time to get down for a cause that effects us all.

“We hope that we can make a decent donation at the end of October,” Bachmann, who has lost people close to him to cancer, told Noisecreep. “I have been a cancer researcher now for more than 10 years, and I have seen great strides made in the fight against breast cancer. But the fight is not over, as approximately 40,000 women still die from this disease.” Given his career as a scientist, Bachmann knows that the race for a cure is an expensive one, hence the shirts. “I also know what it costs to do groundbreaking breast cancer research and believe me it is not cheap, so every donation helps,” Bachmann said.

Bachmann believes that his role as a metal musician is just as important as his role as a researcher when it comes to creating awareness, and thus, donations. “Being part of a metal band and part of this scene for over half my life, I know that metal fans can be counted on to step up and join this fight,” Bachmann said. “Please join Believer in helping to fund breakthrough medical science that will progress us even closer to finding a cure. All proceeds from the sales of these shirts will go directly to funding experiments and not into anyone’s pocket! Thanks again for your help.”

With approximately one out of every eight women receiving a breast cancer diagnosis last year, there’s no time like the present to make a donation and sport a cool shirt in the process. The shirts are available at Believer’s Web site. Purchasers can also enter the name of someone they may wish to honor with their donation during the checkout process. The band will eventually post the list of honorees on their site.
