The album will be rereleased for Ten Bands One Cause, a yearly effort during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month that raises money for Gilda’s Club NYC, which provides support and counseling for cancer patients and their families. The organization was named in honor of Saturday Night Live comedian Gilda Radner, who died from cancer in 1989 at the age of 42.

Other artists that are involved in this year’s campaign include Chet Faker, Al Green, Run the Jewels, Between the Buried and Me, Clutch, Joey Bada$$ and Pierce the Veil. Last year’s campaign, which included a special edition release from Jason Isbell, raised over $30,000.

The special edition of Metamodern Sounds in Country Music will be available in retailers nationwide on Sept. 29.
