Gloriana Get Dirty for a Good Cause
Gloriana get their hands dirty for a good cause.
The band members were photographed with their hands in oil to show that environmental clean up is, literally, in our hands. The photo was taken as part of the sp[OIL]ed campaign, which partners with www.protectourcoastline.com to raise money for fishermen, shrimpers and those working with natural wildlife of the Louisiana coast.
"We are proud to be a part of this campaign to try and help out the workers and wildlife affected by the oil spill," Gloriana's Tom Gossin says. "The possible long-term effects could be detrimental. It's important that we continue to aid Louisiana's recovery."
Gloriana credits their success to fan support and say that they, in turn, want to support others.
"It means the world to us," Mike Gossin tells The Boot. "We set out with a dream three years ago and made some songs and toured as much as we possibly could. And people supported us and believed in us ... it wouldn't have happened without people supporting us and going out and spending their hard earned money."
Gloriana is currently on tour. Their next shows are October 20 in Raleigh, N.C. and October 21 in Aiken, S.C. A complete list of dates and cities can be found here.
