Take a look at footage of Sister Hazel recording their EP “Water” at Keystone Studios in Nashville, TN

 

PRE-ORDER THE NEW EP “WATER” NOW: https://lnk.to/WaterPreOrder

The new EP, “Water,” is set for release February 9, 2018! The six-track EP is Volume I of a collectible compilation series titled, “Elements,” and includes a bonus seventh track that will continue throughout the series. The water element is symbolically often viewed as the source of life and reflection. In the powerful track “You Won’t See Me Again,” co-written by Andrew Copeland, singer and guitarist for the band, he addresses heartbreaking emotions and distress about his own brother-in-law’s fight with alcohol addiction. The emotional delivery of the lyrics by lead vocalist Ken Block came easily and honestly as he is in his 15th year of recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. The loss of his own younger brother-in-law law earlier this year, after a lifelong struggle with this horrible disease, added to the sense of desperation, urgency, and finally hope that this powerful track holds.

“Creatively, we are firing on all cylinders right now. I’m 100% sure that people will hear that excitement and energy instantly on this new EP,” expressed Ken. “We had a blast shaping these songs in the studio and we couldn’t be prouder of the songwriting and the way it all came together! The fact that this is the first in a series of upcoming EP’s that will be released, has us riding a wave of huge momentum and in a really sweet groove musically. We’re pumped about what we’re rolling out on this record. The Hazelnuts asked for it, and we’re responding with more music more frequently. Hold on tight!”

WCJB 20 ABC News Covers Lyrics For Life – Camp Hazelnut Event

October 23rd, 2017 Posted by news 0 comments on “WCJB 20 ABC News Covers Lyrics For Life – Camp Hazelnut Event”

WCJB 20 ABC News covers the 3rd Annual Lyrics For Life Camp Hazelnut Event. Watch it here! 

 

 

The Camp Hazelnut goal is simple: create a playful, safe, uplifting experience for kids and families navigating the overwhelming challenges of a cancer diagnosis … a place to simply get away and come together. The campers embark on a great exploration to discover (or rediscover!) the magic that can only be created at summer camp, and the band is right there alongside them every step of the way, leading activities, playing acoustic campfire sing-alongs, sharing, giggling, and having a blast.

Camp Hazelnut is financially supported through the band’s Lyrics For Life 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. Ken Block and his band mates founded Lyrics For Life in memory of Ken’s younger brother Jeffrey, who ultimately lost his four-year battle with cancer as a teenager and changed a lot of lives.

“Most of us have been touched by it, a loved one, a friend, a co-worker dealing with this disease. Our desire to help comes from a real place, from real loss,” said lead singer Ken Block. “It gives us the energy and ambition to fight back. We ARE fighting back! It’s a personal mission of ours to foster and create events that are fun, cool, exciting, and ultimately meaningful to this vital cause. Together we can make a real difference.”
Lyrics for Life has donated approximately $250k over the years to Gainesville’s STOP Children’s Cancer Charity. They have also benefited other Cancer Charities around the country including Children’s Cancer Center of Tampa and Camp Sunshine in Atlanta.
About Lyrics For Life:
Lyrics For Life is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. Sister Hazel frontman, Ken Block, and his band mates founded Lyrics For Life in memory of Ken’s younger brother, Jeffrey, who ultimately lost his four-year battle with cancer that started at age 14. The charity unites musicians and celebrities for concert events, auctions, and other fundraising efforts. The monies raised are donated to groups that are working to find a cure, as well as those aiming to enrich the lives of patients and their families. From research to summer camps and family support groups, we are surrounding this disease and conquering it from every angle. Artists participate in many ways, often by donating handwritten lyrics to one of their songs on anything from a simple sheet of paper to a surfboard to some other unique item, which we offer for auction at one of our Lyrics For Life events. Our team of musicians, volunteers, sponsors, and supporters set high goals for the future. We accept the challenge to find new ways of raising money and awareness and to help make each day a little brighter until there is a cure.  http://www.lyricsforlife.org/
About Camp Hazelnut: 
Decades of familiar, happy faces cover the walls in the dining hall of Camp Crystal Lake outside Gainesville, FL. Kids around the U.S. have been spending summers there for as long as anyone can remember, so when the Camp’s Director, Scott Burton, got word to the band that he would love to collaborate on an event, everyone loaded up the car and headed out for a visit. The conversation started simply as a family-focused Sister Hazel fan event—a weekend “summer camp” retreat with activities, bonfires, cabins, and, of course, music. When Sister Hazel decided to also invite some regional kids with cancer and their families, the idea took on a whole new meaning, and the weekend turned out to be far more powerful than anyone first imagined: so much so, that they decided to center future Camp Hazelnut events around these special kids and families. The Camp Hazelnut goal is simple: create a playful, safe, uplifting experience for kids and families navigating the overwhelming challenges of a cancer diagnosis. It’s a place to simply get away and come together. The campers embark on a great exploration to discover (or rediscover!) the magic that can only be created at summer camp, and the band is right there alongside them every step of the way, leading activities, playing acoustic campfire sing-alongs, sharing, giggling, and having a blast. http://www.lyricsforlife.org/camp-hazelnut
 

About The Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS) Foundation:

 
The Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS) Foundation was founded in 2011 by a group of Florida Cancer Specialists partner physicians who recognized many patients struggle with everyday living expenses while undergoing cancer treatment. They believed no one should choose between paying bills and receiving cancer treatment. The FCS Foundation provides financial support to qualified cancer patients and their families for expenses such as rent or mortgage, car payments and utility bills. By giving patients peace of mind in knowing that their bills are being paid while they are undergoing treatment, we allow them to concentrate on what really matters fighting cancer and getting well.Non-medical, financial aid from the FCS Foundation is available to Florida residents 18 years of age or older who are receiving cancer treatment from a Florida oncologist. Recipients must have a household income at or below 200% of the national poverty guidelines. 100% of donations received go directly towards paying the essential living expenses of someone with cancer.
