Scarpoint Donating Profits From New Song To Anti-Bullying Campaign

Sweden's Scarpoint has issued the following announcement about donating the profits from the release of a new song to an anti-bullying campaign for Swedish schools:

"Hey fuckers! So finally we can give you the news we've waiting for to give you for over a year now. When we recorded the album we also recorded a song with a bunch of our friends on it. Why?

"It all begun back in 2008 when we read an article about a young boy from Örebro, Sweden, who was repeatedly physically bullied at school, receiving hits to both his head and his face. He came up with the idea to pay other pupils with his own toys for protection. The school tried to put a stop to it but to no avail and as a result the boys suffered from difficult psychological problems. When we read this, our hearts was shattered into thousands of pieces. We could not imagine that a Swedish school would fail to this degree in regards to protecting this young boy.

"This is just one of many examples that further confirm that the lack of sufficient anti-bullying programs in schools negatively effects our future generations. Not content to just sit around and do nothing, we, Scarpoint, decided to take action and call some of our friends and try to give something back to the kids that listening to our style of music. We also decided that every single Krona/ Pound/ Dollar/ Euro/ Yen/ Franc/ Peso/ Rupee/ Ruble/ Lira, whatever, that is generated by sales of this song that would normally (hopefully) find their way to us will go directly to an anti bullying campaign for Swedish schools. This project has been fully funded by us, Scarpoint, along with the generous assistance of all the people involved who gave their valuable time, knowledge and talents to the project, so there is no money needed to be recouped, and it all goes to the cause.

"The story is out in one of the biggest newspapers in Sweden, Aftonbladet today friday, make sure to pick it up. An English version of this is on it's way. Excpect more info and update around this shortly. So everyone open your fucking eyes and unite with us! Spread the news and stay twisted fuckers!"
