Japan’s Crystal Lake have released a cover of The Ghost Inside’s ‘Wide Eyed‘, in order to give something back to the scene. Nice one, guys.
Now, of course, 100% of the profits garnered from this cover will go to The Ghost Inside, a band who Crystal Lake share influence with, to help cover their on-going medical bills.
The band made the announcement of the cover early this morning, which you can read below:
“We, Crystal Lake had a chance to tour with The Ghost Inside in Japan, three years ago. When we heard the news of a horrific accident that The Ghost Inside was involved, we, like all of you, were so shocked and at a loss for words. We strongly felt that we must do something to help support The Ghost Inside, as a band and simply as their friends from the other side of the world. Through these tough times, The Ghost Inside has been posting heartfelt messages and photos of them in recovery, and witnessing their positive attitude and strength to recover has taught us what being a band is all about. “Wide Eyed” is one of our favorite tracks from Dear Youth and Vigil’s lyrics about how they must keep moving forward with strong will and faith, no matter how hard the situation is, was truly inspiring to us. It is an honor to have this opportunity to give our words and hearts as Crystal Lake. This song encouraged us when we needed to look up. We don’t know how helpful this can be, but we will be so happy if this project means something to The Ghost Inside. We gave our best shot to breathe our hope and emotion into this great song in Crystal Lake’s way, so we hope everyone who reads this will take a listen and help support The Ghost Inside during this time of need.
Thank you to Yosh from Survive Said The Prophet, our management team, Bobby, Shan and Artery Recordings for working hard to make this happen.”

Similarly, Stray From The Path also released a new song to help TGI lads, and have already raised about $4k in just a couple of days.
This is just another great example of the hardcore community coming together for a common good. Again, nice one.
