Boy Kill Boy have committed their support to War Child, dedicating their next single 'Shoot Me Down' (released November 13th) to the charity, with a proportion of royalties from sales going to the charity, as well as adding their name to a soon-to-be-announced London benefit gig.

Chris Peck, the band's singer, has had first-hand experience of one of War Child"s programme areas, Democratic Republic of Congo. He comments: "Back in '95 I was lucky to spend a couple of months in Uganda with a home-grown organisation called 'The Ruwenzori Project'. There, me and fifteen others worked on an environmental programme in the Ruwenzori jungle which borders Uganda and the D.R.C. With this and through visiting neighbouring schools and orphanages I had a pretty up-close experience of war's devastation on the community, especially the kids.

"Those stories have since stayed with me so now I'm delighted to have anything to do with War Child and their long-term vision. We can't wait to play in support of the charity and to have our next single 'Shoot Me Down' linked to the project. Most of all we look forward to growing with War Child and being a part of this down the line in any way we can."

Children conscripted into an army or militia. Children living on the streets. War has marginalized these children so extremely that many of them die, suffer severe trauma, or are forced into crime just to survive. War Child works with local communities and organisations to provide protection for these children and campaigns to prevent the prosecution of war on them.

YOUR WAR IS NOT WITH ME
