A charity single is to be released in memory of Stuart Cable.
The former Stereophonics drummer - who was found dead at his home in South Wales on June 7 - is to be remembered with a track by his most recent band Killing for Company, will all proceeds going to the Teenage Cancer Trust and the Ty Hafan Hospice.
His bandmates said in a statement: "To think Stu won't be joining us on stage anymore is a hard thought to face - and although his passing is tragic - we hope to draw some positive from this difficult time. As a band, we are honoured and privileged to have shared the experiences we've had with Stu.
"We will be releasing the single, 'Former Mining Town', and dedicating it to Stuart. He was hugely proud of the album and this track in particular. Not only have we lost a rock legend but also a best friend and the heart of our band. The stage will not be the same without him."
While the 'Just Looking' hitmaker's cause of death has not yet been determined, hundreds of fans lined the streets in Aberdare, South Wales for his funeral on June 21.
'Former Mining Town' will be released via download from online retailers or from the band's official website from July 25.
