Zombie Aid Charity Singles Revealed
A zombie enthusiast from Manchester is looking to make history by topping the charts with the UK’s first ever Halloween Number One.
Carl Whitely, the man behind Zombie Aid – the Manchester-based horror events company that last year organised Manchester’s first ever zombie walk – is set to release a double ‘A’ side single by Resist and Uncle Rotter.
“Zombie freaks” by Resist and “Zombies Wild” by Uncle Rotter, will be performed live to the public on Sunday 24th October at the Printworks in Manchester. Each performance will be followed by a premiere of the two Zombie-Aid music videos.
The Zombie Aid single will be released the following day on Monday 25th October, leaving just seven days for it to reach the UK number one slot – on Halloween (Sunday 31st October).
All proceeds from this ambitious project will go towards the Make-a-Wish Foundation, a charity which grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses.
Carl Whiteley, creative director of Zombie-Aid, said: “Nobody has done this before and we’re relying on a huge amount of support. We’re already at number one in the pre-order chart with play.com and we’re confident that we can make this happen.”
“If this catches on, it could become something of a tradition like the well-known Christmas Number One. The best thing about it is that all monies raised will go to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. I can’t think of a better reason to ask everybody to join the fun and buy our horror hit.”
Following the launch on Sunday, Resist and Uncle Rotter will perform a full live set at Manchester’s Hard Rock Cafe. For VIP media passes, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Zombie-Aid was created in Manchester by Carl Whitely in early 2009, as a charity-supporting horror events company. So far, it has taken the form of popular ‘Charity Zombie Walks’, a phenomenon which has since spread around the world – its largest walk to date being in Canada.
