AN ABERDEEN rock band are set to donate all proceeds from their new single to help those affected by recent flooding.
Watchfires will give all the cash generated from Let The Walls Speak Our Names to the Scottish Flood Forum Appeal.
Television coverage of the devastation around the North-east inspired the five-piece to make the donation.
Singer Ewan Donald said: “The idea came about when we were watching the news and witnessing people’s houses being washed away.
“So many awful things happen worldwide on a daily basis and we’re all guilty of letting it pass us by and not consider what it must be like to be there and be affected by it.
“The flooding in Deeside in particular struck a chord with us because it’s somewhere most of us know well and have great memories of.
“It reminded us a lot of our song Let The Walls Speak Our Names which is about the affection we can have for bricks and mortar.
“We live our lives in these places and make memories there.”
Ballater, Aboyne, Braemar, Kintore, Ellon and Aberdeen’s Garthdee area were among the areas worst affected when the Dee, Don and Ythan rivers burst their banks causing devastation to homes and businesses.
The single is set to be released as a digital download on Saturday, January 23 on the Aberdeen based Struck Dum Records.
