Guitarist Tony Iommi and singer Ian Gillan have teamed up for a charity single to rebuild a music school in Armenia out on May 6th, operating under the WhoCares banner, a supergroup of hard rock legends: Jon Lord (keyboards), Nicko McBrain (drums), Jason Newsted (bass) and Linde Lindström (guitar).
The duo has recorded two brand new songs with the intent to support the rebuilding of a music school in Gyumri, Armenia. Both Gillan and Iommi have spent a lot of time in Armenia, fallen in love with the country and the people and have dedicated a lot of work to a nation still shocked after the earthquake that struck Armenia on December 7, 1988 at 11:41am.
WhoCares will release the 2 new songs on digital download and limited edition CD single on May 6th 2011: "Out of My Mind" and "Holy Water". The CD single will also contain the video clip of "Out Of My Mind" and a 40-minute documentary that shows Gillan's and Iommi's involvement with the Armenia cause over the years.
The WhoCares single is released through earMUSIC.
