You probably noticed I only used capital letters in the headline. This is because I am very excited for this new release and I am triple excited because I can premiere three tracks from three different bands from this compilation. One could say I am excited pretty fast, wich is is true, but I have reason to be so excited! The first Human Worth compilation was released May One this year and I called it the best Compilation of the year and it seems it is now tied with Vol 2.. I am getting excited just by typing this! All these amazing bands! Check out the first compilation here.
Human Worth is a charitable label raising funds for people in crisis through their shows and releases.The label began as a series of fundraiser nights across the UK, bringing together an array of artists all in aid of charity. (I just copied this from their bandcamp because I can’t say it better).
The first compilation featured 20 artists and raised money for The Bail Project. And now Human Worth will release Vol.2 with again 20 artists (AJA, Klämp , Blóm, Shuck, Sly & The Family Drone, We Wild Blood, Modern Technology, Mummise Guns, Bismuth & Vile Creature,USA Nails, Algernon Cornelius, Ballpeen, Vile Sect, Working Men’s Club, Eurosuite , OZO, Lovely Wife, No Music, Warren Schoenbright, Left Hand Cuts Off the Right)
On the Human Worth label we will also get the new album by Modern Technology (who will premiere a new track on your favorite site Fuzzy Sun like right now). The proceeds will go to The Trussell Trust to help support their nationwide network of food banks, and Black Minds Matter to help provide mental health support to black individuals and families.
Now VOL. 2 will be released this friday (when bandcamp waives their fees again) and all proceeds this time are going to Harmless (To provide support, information, training and consultancy to people who self harm, their friends, families and professionals). So I will share the full compilation on friday again so you will not forget! But now I will share with immense pleasure the three premieres!
This London two piece make so much noise it is almost impossible to believe that it is only two of them. They have already released two tracks from their upcoming album ‘Service Provider’ wich are really good, but maybe it is because I am getting excited again or because I can premiere it but this is by far the best track they released. The track ‘Gate Crasher’ is immensly heavy, filled with a gorgeous heavy riff and vocals. ‘Service Provider’ is going to be special, I can just feel it. It will be released on September four on Cruel nature Records and the Human Worth label ofcourse.
Shuck is this trio from Manchester that makes the most amazing noisy fuzz punk. It is a little diffcult to pin this band down to a genre but what I know for sure is that they are really heavy and original. They released their first EP ‘Shuck’ in 2018 on Hominid Sounds and stayed with the label for their latest (wich is rteally great and catchy) release ‘Petrichor and Rainbows’ wich was released June 5. So now we get a new track already! It is a live recording of the track ‘Sarah Conner’ and with the track they showcase their ferocious energy! Tune in and be blown away by Shuck!
Ballpeen is a trio that played in bands like Tide of Iron, Jinn, Grace, Thirty Seconds Until Armageddon, OZO, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaind and many more. But hey, that does not mean a lot,wbut what does is the music they make, and they make really awesome energetic hardcore punk. They just released their split with Onlooker and have released their full album ‘Pachinko’ in June on Cruel Nature Records. This is a lot of awesome music in a short time! And now they make 2020 even better they have given a demo track (wich does not sound demo at all) for thsi amazing comp. The track is called (Hate Fantasies’ and it so much energy you can probably power your electric car with it.
