The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus will be performing a series of eastern seaboard shows beginning on November 29. Any Adelaide fans who are travelling to see these shows, as well as any local fans of the band, will be moved by this announcement from the band, and their tour promoters, regarding their response to the death of Australian fan, Toyah Cordingley:
‘Toyah Cordingley, was a beautiful, highly popular 24 year old woman. She was an animal lover and a huge music fan.
Ms. Cordingley’s body was discovered in the dunes at Wangetti Beach, north of Cairns, on October 22, a day after she was reported missing.
Toyah was taken from us way too early. A young lady just walking her dog on a beach was murdered, in a crime that has shaken the whole country.
Despite a huge amount of information collected to police, the killer is still at large. We need all the help we can get to find this killer. There may be others at risk.
Toyah’s favourite song was Your Guardian Angel by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and the song is now often referred to as ‘Toyah’s Song’. It was her ‘go to’ song, her ring tone for a long time, and a song that her friends and family now relate heavily to more than ever.
Lead singer, Ronnie Winter, has announced the band will dedicate the song to Toyah on all of their upcoming Australian shows.
The band have also come up with a new lyric video and they have pinned the story under the video. You can view it here: https://youtu.be/NZN-G7dsKpE
‘’This lyric video will stand as a living memorial for those we have lost along the way. If you know someone who has passed and this song was special to them feel free to leave their story in the comment thread or a simple name and date of passing to have them remembered and thought of by all…’’
R.I.P. Toyah Cordingley. Bless you beautiful lady. We certainly will make Your Guardian Angel ‘Toyah’s Song’.
Music can bring us all together, it bonds us, it strengthens us. Please spread the word and the song. We need to find the killer.’
