Disturbed Release West Memphis 3 Benefit Song
Support for the 'West Memphis Three' has been gaining ground after forensic evidence proved there was no connection between Damien Echols, Jason Baldwil and Jessie Misskelley and the deaths of three eight-year-old boys in West Memphis, Arkansas, USA, in 1993.
A retrial was ordered in November but by the time it begins the trio will have spent another year behind bars. And although the evidence appears to prove their innocence, the defendants will have to cover the costs of re-testing the material.
Disturbed are selling the track 3 for 99c on their website to help cover the cost of justice – and urge their fans and fans of heavy music in general to contribute. more on this story
