Tears For Fears continue to sow "The Seeds of Love" as they reach out to the people affected by the torrential rains in Metro Manila. According to a post on member Curt Smith's official website, the band will be helping out the survivors through their band merchandise.
"As Curt is in the air right now, IÆm posting to let you know that Tears For Fears announced today that theyÆll be donating all proceeds from merchandise sales at their August 10 & 11 Smart Araneta Coliseum shows to aid Manila Flood Relief," says a representative of Smith.
Smith also took to Twitter to give out hope to all the calamity victims. ôMuch love to all my Filipino friends dealing with the devastating weather & floods, we will attempt to bring some good cheer with us,ö he tweeted.
The English rock band rose to fame in the 1980's with their catchy New Wave synthesizer-driven sound. Smith formed the band in 1981 with Roland Orzabal and has sold more than 25 million albums during their career. They are set to return and perform again in the Philippines this weekend: August 10 and 11 at the Araneta Coliseum (with Fra Lippo Lippi's Per Sorensen) and on August 12 at the Waterfront Cebu.
