Kaiser Chiefs join fight against Alzheimer's

Kaiser Chiefs join fight against Alzheimer's
8th June 2011

Indie rock band the Kaiser Chiefs is supporting the Alzheimer's Society with the release of their new album.

The 'I Predict a Riot' singers have launched their new album in an unusual way. Fans can download ten songs from the 20 new tracks posted on the band's website.

Celebrities are to cover the new album and will post their versions on the website. Each time one of these celebrity versions is downloaded, £1 of the £7.50 total cost will be donated to the Alzheimer's Society.

So far, Ricky Wilson, the lead singer of the Kaiser Chiefs, has uploaded his own version, as has Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles and the Guardian.

Jeremy Hughes, Chief Executive at Alzheimer's Society, said: "Simply by downloading a celebrity Kaiser Chiefs album, you can help Alzheimer's Society support people to live well with dementia today and fund vital research to find a cure for tomorrow."

This follows a University of California Santa Barbara breakthrough in Alzheimer's research, which they believe could lead to a new direction in the field, according to a study published in The Journal of Biological Chemistry.
