Musicians from the spheres of gothic and alt-rock have come together on an album to raise funds for the UK's care workers.

Put together by Peter Finnemore from the bands Children On Stun and Grooving In Green - who himself has an emergency services background -the Unity Charity Album features contributions from the likes of Simon Hinkler (The Mission), Noctorum (featuring Marty Willson-Piper of The Church and All About Eve fame), Andy Cousin (All About Eve, The Mission) and Vlad Janicek (Nosferatu).

With all proceeds going directly to The Care Workers' Charity, Finnemore says, "We’re immensely proud to present the Unity charity album, which has been put together specifically to raise funds for The Care Workers’ Charity. Fifteen artists from the alternative music scene have each contributed a carefully chosen track, many of which are exclusive versions prepared specifically for the project and not available elsewhere. These are strange, sad and difficult times and we all wanted to do something to help. We chose The Care Workers’ Charity because it represents and provides support to the many care workers around the country at the moment who are working every day with the vulnerable and needy, caring for them and trying to keep them safe from COVID 19. Sadly, too many of them are facing the disease head-on now when they go into work, dealing with the awful discomfort, pain and sadness it brings. We hope people will want to join us in supporting The Care Workers' Charity by downloading our album and making a donation in return for it."

The full list of contributors is Grooving In Green, Simon Hinkler, Silent Idols, All Living Fear, Noctorum, The Glasshouse Museum, Andy & Nancy, The Faces Of Sarah, Unted By Angels, Down From Above, Vlad Janicek, Chaos Bleak, System Of Hate, Sometime The Wolf and Gothzilla.

The album is available to download free via Bandcamp, but donations are encouraged via their Just Giving page.
