The Upwelling Honor Those Lost On 9/11 With "Ladder 116"

In remembrance of the 9th anniversary of September 11th, Queens-based rock band The Upwelling are releasing their video for "Ladder 116." The band is selling the video and song on their Bandcamp page, with all proceeds going to the New York Police and Fire Widow and Children's Benefit Fund.
The song pays homage to the Queens-based Ladder 116, of which the band shared a friendship. The company was held in the Midtown tunnel the day of the tragedy, due to a security warning which inevitably saved their lives. Two members, however, Paul Gill and Thomas Casoria, worked on rotation for their engine company, and were two of the many brave heroes who lost their lives.
The New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund was formed in 1985, and since its inception, it has distributed over $123 million to the families of New York City police officers, fire fighters, and emergency medical service workers, who were killed in the line of duty.
