The frontman of heavy-metal band Orange Goblin has set up a JustGiving campaign aiming to raise money for the staff of music publisher Team Rock who were laid off on Monday.

With a target goal of £20,000 (now at almost £60,000 at the time of writing), the launch of the campaign follows the announcement that over 70 members of staff who worked for titles such as MetalHammer, Classic Rock and Prog are to lose their jobs without severance pay with just under a week before Christmas.

"On December 19th, 73 members of the Team Rock staff were told that the company is going into liquidation and that they are being made redundant with immediate effect with ZERO pay. These are good, hard-working, committed people that through Metal Hammer, Classic Rock, Prog Rock, TeamRock Radio and more, have supported the rock and heavy metal scene in this country for decades and now we, the rock community, need to pull together to help give something back."

Please spare what you can so that everyone may enjoy the festive spirit.

For those who want to donate to the campaign, take a look at the JustGiving page here.
