Albatross have been touring and playing in various cities in the US for the past month. The band, along with Noiserock Treehouse and Vinyl Laranja, has generously decided to donate part of the funds that are collected through tickets and sponsorship to Nepal Rising's project to rebuild Shree Bageswory Lower Secondary School, located in Khadkabhanjyang, Nuwakot - one of the hardest hit places by the Earthquake.
