As a promotion company dedicated to delivering showcases of the best heavy music the UK (and beyond) has to offer, the recently announced #SaveOurVenues Fund launched by Music Venue Trust addresses an issue that’s close to the hearts of us at Astral Noize Events – the promotions wing of Astral Noize.
In these unprecedentedly trying times, the already vulnerable live music industry is one of many facing economic struggles, with hundreds of smaller music venues struggling to survive, let alone turn a profit. With this in mind, and with this being a potentially urgent issue right now, not to mention one that could play a vital role in ensuring the DIY music scene’s continued strength, we’ve decided to run the first Astral Noize charity compilation in support of #SaveOurVenues, to help protect the venues most at risk. We’re proud to bring you a selection of beloved bands we’ve had the pleasure to put on at Astral Noize Events shows.
For a minimum donation of just £3, you’ll get tracks from the likes of riotous black metallers Underdark, post-sludge maestros Torpor and doom titans Slabdragger, as well as an exclusive, unreleased new track from Nothing Clean and a recent live recording from Pijn. Cover art comes courtesy of Ross Sargeant of Pascagoula.
