Yet another fabulous Band out of Los Angeles, California, Pleasure Burn (click to see the bands’ website), has dedicated their Art and Exceptional Musical talent to a worthy and notable cause that has already created quite a stir globally shortly following the Terrorist attack in Paris on November 13th, 2015. This notable Rock band on the rise has elected to participate in the Play It Forward Campaign (click here to view) and has created a beautiful tribute video for their cover of the song ‘I Love You All The Time’, an original song by Eagles of Death Metal. This movement (one of many) is meant to honor the memory of all those who lost their lives in the attack and is a testament to just how beautifully the Music Community always comes together for the sake of humanity.
In close conjunction with the band’s management and The Studio Venue (click here to view their website) where the LIVE performance will take place tomorrow at 8pm PST. The link provided is where fans can go to ‘tip’ or ‘buy the band a drink’ during or after their performance. This brilliant performance by Pleasure Burn will be LIVE for your viewing pleasure on the front page of Starlight Music Chronicles www.starlightmusicchronicles.com so tune in! We will follow up with a special ‘SPOTLIGHT’ on the band with an exclusive interview in the coming weeks. In addition, once the YouTube video the band has created is launched, we will post it in the 'Our Faves' section of the website for a period of 2 weeks.
-History of the Play It Forward Campaign-
The Play It Forward Campaign was set up by Eagles of Death Metal, to challenge their peers in the Music Community to create a ‘cover’ of their song so that all money collected from the sales of each recording of ‘I Love You All The Time’ goes to The Sweet Stuff Foundation and to the family of fallen friend and industry professional Nick Alexander who, sadly, passed in the terrorist attack . The Sweet Stuff Foundation was founded to give assistance to career Musicians, Recording Engineers and their Families struggling with illness and disability. (click here to find out more about this foundation). For your convenience, we have put a list of all the Musicians that have participated below as well as the ‘Letter from Eagles of Death Metal’ who initially began this crusade.

LETTER FROM EAGLES OF DEATH METAL
Hello talented friend, The senseless and violent terrorist attacks of Nov. 13, 2015 in Paris have left us all unsettled and we dare not give another second of precious time to those who have tried to steal our freedoms and take away our power.
Instead, we are writing to ask for your help to Play It Forward. We are calling upon our friends to donate their time, talent and good will in a show of solidarity to help the victims of these atrocious acts in Paris and those affected by terrorism worldwide.
We are asking for you to cover our song "I Love You All The Time." For every cover sold, we pledge to donate 100% of the publishing income to The Sweet Stuff Foundation. We ask that you also donate the money generated from sales of the song to the charity.
In the same spirit, we would encourage you to offer one of your songs up to be covered by another artist, and follow suit - donate the publishing monies to charity - The Play it Forward Initiative.
Whether you're Soul or R&B; Hip Hop or Hippy; Garage, Goth, Country, Punk or Pop; Death Metal or DJ; It matters not. Whether your version is faithful to ours, instrumental, uses only lyrics or fragments thereof or is completely reimagined in every way, it matters not. Your individual musical differences become our collective strength. Simultaneously, we will call upon iTunes, Tidal, Amazon, Spotify & all others who will sell these covers, to join us and donate their portions to a charity as a symbol of unity. So many wonderfully talented artists have offered their love & support or have reached out asking, "How can we help?" Our answer is simple; Unite with us. All of us. The musicians, the bands, the music companies & the fans. because we are music. We are the anthems of great nations. We are the songs of our forefathers. We are the hymns of God. The songs of the broken hearted. The unchained melodies. The songs of puppy love & of love that cannot be broken. We are the music of hope & possibility. We are the call to arms. We are the chorus of victory. We are songs in the key of life.
We are the Champions... of the World.
In the event our song doesn't float your boat, we encourage you to help unite our business by any means possible. If you're drawing a blank, donate something of yours or the proceeds from one of your songs, as Duran Duran (click here to read more about this) has so graciously done. But do join us help & heal through music. They attacked us all, please hear the call.
Thank you for your time & love to you all,
Eagles of Death Metal
