The Dark Knight Rises composer Hans Zimmer is dedicating a piece he composed called “Aurora” to the Batman theater shooting victims. He worked on the track this week and is donating 100% of the proceeds to charities to the victims & families. It’s an 8 minute or so track that’s memorable and somber. Help out and purchase the track on Watertower Music’s website or iTunes (will be on there soon).
Reel Big Fish played in Denver on Thursday when the Aurora, Colorado shootings took place. Now they are donating proceeds from that show to the families and victims of that tragic event. Talk about a good deed! I expect more bands to follow in their footsteps in the days to come, if they haven’t already. The full band statement is below:

He has issued a statement about the tragedy which you can read below:
