We’re back! We’re back for a reason!
After last year’s successful premiere, it’s time to bring things to the next level – because even in the second round:
We are louder than you!
The compilation We Are Louder Than You 2.0 contains 15 bands from countries all over the world, that maybe not very popular for their music scene, but we would like to point out, that these countries also have tons of amazing bands you definitely need to check out – with a little bit of help from us!
Of course we still think that compassion is one of the most important things in the world. So like we did in the last year, we will donate 100 % of the income of this compilation to the Hardcore Help Foundation, which is a non-profit humanitarian organization ran by members of the hardcore/punk community. HHF is part of a registered association (Flotte e.V.) in Germany. They collect merchandise and donations to help people in need. At the moment the HHF has four main projects in Kenya, Haiti and Germany.
