The Keep A Breast Foundation and House of Blues Entertainment are teaming up to present Keep A Breast’s first ever Breast Cancer Prevention music tour during October’s National Breast Cancer Prevention Month.
It will feature Uh Huh Her, the critically acclaimed electro-indie duo-comprised Camila Grey and Leisha Hailey.
“I’ve chosen to become part of Keep A Breast because like many others I have been directly affected by breast cancer in my family,” Grey said.
“Luckily both my grandmothers are breast cancer survivors. I think awareness and education are so important in treating this disease because if detected early enough, chances of survival are greatly increased. I’m so happy to be a part of something that will reach young and old alike, and what better way than through music.”
Keep A Breast and Uh Huh Her will interact with fans throughout the month via live shows, interviews, video and social media. In addition, the Keep A Breast Tour will serve as a national grassroots education tour that will travel throughout the US and Canada educating fans about breast cancer prevention. A portion of ticket sales will be donated to Keep A Breast.
Uh Huh Her released their debut EP, I See Red in 2007. In 2008, the duo completed, Common Reaction, their first full length LP. The album featured the anthemic single, Not A Love Song.
In 2010, Uh Huh Her’s song, “Same High,” was featured in the Oscar-nominated film, The Kids Are All Right. Uh Huh Her’s new album, Nocturnes, will be released October 11, 2011 following their EP Black and Blue, which debuted this spring.
The Keep A Breast Foundation is a non-profit organization. Its objective is to help eradicate breast cancer by informing young people about methods of prevention, early detection and support.
