Rockers Plan Bands Against Bush Events

Rock bands SONIC YOUTH, THE DONNAS and THE LIARS are among a host of musicians to join the BANDS AGAINST BUSH (BAB) collective who hope to thwart the American President's success at the 2004 elections.

The group plans to raise awareness for the movement which is focused on ousting GEORGE W BUSH from the White House next year (04) and ensuring his bid for a second term in office is defeated.

Artists such as GOOD CHARLOTTE, GREEN DAY and NOFX have also agreed to record tracks for a compilation album entitled ROCK AGAINST BUSH.

The BAB have chosen 11 October (03) to stage events in New York City, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Seattle, Boston, Olympia, Washington, Portland, Oregon, Paris, France and Dublin, Ireland.

Meanwhile AUDIOSLAVE star TOM MORELLO, BILLY BRAGG and STEVE EARLE will be hitting the road this autumn (03) on the TELL US THE TRUTH tour, which will coincide with campaigning for the eagerly-anticipated election.
