Santa Monica, CA (August 3, 2017)—Killer Tracks will release Mike Peters’ I Can, We Can and Love + this month via the Killer Tracks Artists Series, with a percentage of the revenue from the licensing of the songs going to The Alarm frontman’s Love, Hope, Strength Foundation.
The songs were written and sung by Peters, whose band The Alarm produced more than five million records worldwide and 16 Top 50 UK singles. Peters and The Alarm are currently headlining this year’s Warped Tour, which includes a stop in Pomona, CA on August 6.
Peters is a cancer survivor and the subject of a new documentary, The Man in the Camo Jacket, directed by Russ Kendall and produced by Jonathan McHugh, Jonathan Platt, James Chippendale, Alex Colletti and Stash Slionski. The film chronicles Peters’ eight-year battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. A special screening of the film will be held on August 3 at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, followed by a short musical performance and Q&A.
Love Hope Strength, named after The Alarm’s 1985 anthem "Strength," will have representatives at each Warped Tour date conducting swab drives and donor matches. To date, Love Hope Strength has added over 150,000 individuals to the bone marrow registry, and has created over 3,100 potential life-saving matches for patients around the world.
The songs on I Can, We Can and Love + are described as “vintage Mike Peters: idealistic, impassioned, soaring.” According to Carl Peel, Killer Tracks VP of production, “They are very inspiring and motivating songs, and fantastic additions to our Artist Series. We are very excited to collaborate with Mike and support the work of his wonderful foundation.”
Film and television licensing of I Can, We Can and Love + is available exclusively through Killer Tracks.
