According to statistics, there is a knife attack in the UK every 4 minutes...and fatal or not, that statistic is astounding. To help combat knife crime, Birmingham based rockers LED BY LANTERNS have joined forces with the "Surrender Your Knife" campaign, raising awareness with the brand new single "Save A Life". Featuring former members of MY FAVOURITE RUNNER UP, the song will appeal to fans of MALLORY KNOX and PARAMORE, but while upbeat, it carries a serious message and hopefully, they will encourage you to support this cause, and the victims of knife crime. If you would like to purchase the single for just £1, please download the MP3 via the link below.
The campaign is also calling for a knife amnesty, where people can hand-in their knives anonymously, without fear of repercussion, so that we can make our streets safer, and that we can try to encourage people to understand the dangers of knives and the ways knife crime affects its victims and their families...all knives collected will be made into a monument by sculptor Alfie Bradey, and you can sign a petition to see this sculpture displayed at Trafalgar Square below.

I aim to give exposure to great unappreciated bands from around the UK who bust a nut to earn next to nothing because they're musicians...the occasional big name band, and the odd over seas band because I'm a cultural sort. Hope you enjoy what you read! x
