Brutal Panda Records Release 15th Anniversary Benefit Sampler


0

Brutal Panda Records have released a new sampler celebrating their 15th anniversary. 10% of the proceeds generated from the compilation will be donated to the Save The Music Foundation. The label’s co-founder Bob Lugowe commented:

“It’s hard to believe that I’m still running a ridiculously named record label fifteen years after we came up with the idea to release a Fight Amp album on vinyl in an era where MySpace was still the major force in the music industry and physical music was gasping for air. The fact that I decided to take the plunge and try to do it full-time after my amazing friend and partner in crime, Mike Lara, passed away last year, adds to the weight of the choice and the importance of supporting independent art & music in this modern era.

Mike was a cosmic Taurus who loved the desert (as pictured on the album art), had impeccable taste and passion around music, and strived to make a difficult world a better place by inspiring others to find community, meaning and support through art. I am so proud of what we have accomplished together and know that Mike is with me every step of the way and continues to inspire myself and the bands’, family & friends whose lives he touched to this day.

Throwing a killer show together and raising money for a good cause is exactly what he would want to be doing if he were still with us. It’s been an incredible journey so far and I can’t thank the bands, labels, fans and friends we’ve made over the years who have trusted us on our mission to defend the faith of heavy music.”

Songs from the likes of Cave In, Rivers Of Nihil, Shiner and many more appear on the release, which can be picked up via Bandcamp.

A series of live shows celebrating the label’s 15th anniversary have also been announced with the Brooklyn, NY show set to raise funds for the aforementioned foundation as well.
