Song for Sendai was inspired by the images broadcast to the world following the recent events in Japan. Having just returned from a week-long tour there, Steve Helstrip (The Thrillseekers) found it impossible to remove those images from his thoughts and felt compelled to help in some way. Therefore, all proceeds from this release will be given to the Japanese Red Cross to assist with their relief efforts. The cover art displays the Japanese saying 'kishi kaisei', meaning 'to recover from a desperate situation and overcome adversity'. The Thrillseekers hope the portrayal of this can be heard in the music.
