We’re looking for eight new bands or solo artists to contribute to 8 Tracks Series, Vol. 2. Once again, we’re looking for previously unreleased songs of any genre and this time connected to themes of healing, renewal, perseverance, journey, or love. All of these themes play a role in processes of recovery, and of course it is up to you how you interpret them. The album will be sold to raise funds towards assisting the burn community and given to burn patients and or their family members as a way to help them in their recovery processes.
If you are interested in contributing, we’d love to work with you! Ideally, all tracks will be submitted by August 31, 2013 to allow ample time for mastering. We plan to release the album around Thanksgiving time and are organizing release shows for Cleveland, Columbus, and New York City in December, with dates to be announced. We’re also looking for help with mastering the album and with cover art so if you or someone you know is interested, please let us know.
Please explore our website for more details on Vol. 1 of the compilation series and for more information, including contact info, about 180 Burn Foundation.
