Speedy Ortiz will close out the year on the road, but it’s not just any ordinary tour. Set to kick off next month, it’s an all-ages US trek whose proceeds will benefit the Girls Rock Camp Foundation, a non-profit organization whose goal is to “develop life skills, creative expression and collaboration through music.”

The band’s also shared the following message:

“We toured non-stop in 2015 and wanted to cap it off playing a series of all ages shows (which is always our favorite kind of show). We’ve also wanted to do a tour with a charity fundraising component for a long while. We’ve done a few fundraisers this year–for the Ferguson Library and the Baltimore Food Bank–but for this tour, we wanted to do something that had a national impact while still supporting local communities.

The Girls Rock Camp Foundation was the perfect choice. GRCF provides funding and support to the the various Girls Rock organizations around the world, which in turn provide affordable music education to kids. Girls Rock helps level the music business’ playing field by coaching girls to form bands, develop skills in music engineering and technical production, and build their self esteem along the way.”
