|Since the members
of German Hard Rock band BONFIRE, who celebrated their 25th
band anniversary last year, all are animal lovers, it was
logic that the idea came up to re-record their song Cry
For Help for charity purposes, a track which originally
appeared to be one of the fans highlights from the
Double X album. The new version with the new
title Cry 4 Help offers a strong textual statement:
Who sheds a tear for the crocodile
That you carry as a bag?
Does your mink coat still keep you warm
When you think about its fate?
It aint just another protest song
About laboratory crimes
Its also a cry for help
For the cowards of our time.
Cry 4 Help will be released as special EP on May 4th, 2012 and will include this song in three different versions plus
three additional bonus tracks. Singer Claus Lessmann comments: Its great to bring one of our favorite songs to life again this way and were even able to re-release this track with the support from PETA. At the end of March, the band travelled to the Ukraine where they played in Kherson in front of 20.000 enthusiastic fans and also became witnesses for the local animal abuse. In the run-up to the European Soccer Championship in the Ukraine and Poland, the Ukrainian government is rewarding people who are killing straying street dogs. The band was looking for a dialogue with the responsible public authorities and the general public. The band is against indiscriminate killing and glad for every kind of support!
