Save the Black Heart! Countershock Digital Compilation to be Released to Benefit Club and Black Heart Crowd Funding Giveaways!
COUNTERSHOCK is a compilation album featuring a killer line-up of some of the many awesome bands who have graced the stage in recent years at The Black Heart in Camden, London.
Sadly, after enduring the financially crippling restrictions enforced upon them amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, this much loved venue and vital part of the underground Heavy Music community is facing the real threat of permanent closure. But there is hope.
The Save The Black Heart Crowdfunding campaign has already garnered huge support but there is still a long way to go.
This album will be available at NYP on Spectral Hound Records Bandcamp with 100% of the proceeds received going to help save Our Black Heart.
A massive thank you to all the bands and their labels for supporting this project.
