February 2, 2016 – New York, NY – New York indie rock act, The Commuters have premiered their brand new video “You’ll Stay Right Here” today via Pancakes & Whiskey, here: http://bit.ly/1Sqjf34. The song, which originally comes from the band’s debut album Rescue, has been remastered and will be featured on their forthcoming EP – to be released Spring 2016.

On “You’ll Stay Right Here” and the new video which stars adorable dogs Bella and Max, Zaidi tells us: “I wrote ‘You’ll Stay Right Here’ when I learned someone close to me was diagnosed with Lymphoma. So I wanted the video to help spread the word about LLS and their amazing work.“
The video tells the story of two dogs who fall in love, get married, and then learn that one of them has cancer. Michele Przypyszny, executive director of the New York City chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphona Society, shares: “We are so excited to be working with The Commuters. ‘You’ll Stay Right Here’ is a beautiful song and tribute to a friend fighting for life. Telling the story of cancer through the unbreakable bond of pets is a wonderful way to show compassion, friendship and unconditional love and support – all of which is needed when you are diagnosed with cancer. LLS is lucky to be a part of such a wonderful moment.“
Before forming The Commuters in 2010, Canadian-born Zaidi helped develop the careers of major label artists while working atArista and RCA records, and produced Grammy-nominated Ryan Leslie’s first demo. Guitarist Uri Djemal is a childhood friend of Zaidi’s (they grew up together in the Philippines) and a New York-based producer. The two co-produced Rescue at Djemal’s studio, where Djemal has produced many artists in New York’s indie-rock scene as well as engineered for Kanye West. They are joined by upstate New York native Paul Amorese on drums, and bassist Ben Zwerin.
The Commuters might hail from New York, but their kinetic, personal anthems capture an alt-rock essence that aspires towards worldwide appeal.
