This Friday 5th June, to coincide with Bandcamp waiving fees, DIE DAS DER the Birmingham based collective and record label will be releasing a new charity compilation called “Without Venues, We’re Nothing”.
All money raised from sales of this compilation will go towards helping ensure the survival of several independent Birmingham venues that the collective have closely worked with, that they and their audience love and money raised will support some of the brilliant self-employed individuals who depend on those venues and the Birmingham music and art scene for their livelihoods and are currently struggling due to the COVID-19 lockdown. A huge and fantastic cause, highlighting the talent of these artists who also depend on venues to showcase their work and connect with a larger audience.
The compilation, which drops tomorrow will feature 34 tracks from 34 bands, including loads of exclusive brand new tracks, live recordings, demos, alternate mixes, tracks not previously available for download/on CD etc.
Music featured on the release include tracks from: Modern Literature, VICTOR, The Temple St. Resistance, The Nature Centre, HospitalRadio, Earwig O’Bickerstaff, Mayors Of Toronto, SheBeat, Richard Burke, Odmansbox, The Humdrum Express, Typical Hunks, Sweet Deals On Surgery, Meadow Burials, Pale Heather, Lakhota, Too Piste, Fauxchisels, Kendo Nagasaki, Angular Merkel, Falling Stacks, Salt the Snail, WAX FUTURES, Rat the Magnificent, Blanchard, SUE, A Pig Called Eggs, Alex Keller, Haq123, Knife Crime, Black Tape, Bear with Chainsaw, Weird Bird, You Dirty Blue.
