After the success of their first charity compilation last year, What Happened to your Band? (WHTYB Press) is releasing a new charity compilation, “Underground Against Racism”, featuring 23 underground bands (pop punk, punk rock, hardcore, metalcore).
All proceeds will go to the George Floyd Memorial Fund, as well as other
victims of racial injustice such as Jamee Johnson, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery (all proceeds will be split equally between all causes).
WHTYB once again collaborated with graphic designer Laurence Crow for the creation of the artwork. He comments: “Music and art are a great platform to spread messages that can better the world around us, and this release is not only sending out an important message, but also raising money to help victims of racial injustice. I wanted this art to show the struggle that demonstrators are going through, to raise their voices and their fists against a society systematically putting them down, holding their fists to that burning flame.”
Valentine, owner of What Happened to your Band?, comments: “The music industry has always been a supportive community and I hope to bring together as many people as possible around this important cause. No one should be discriminated against because of their skin color, sexual orientation or religion. This is a global fight. Thanks to anyone willing to help out, your support is greatly appreciated!”
