Press ReleaseA collection of bands have come together to release a compilation of rare tracks to benefit the victims of the earthquake and its after effects in Japan. The Vs. The Earthquake comp can be purchased at http://vstheearthquake.limitedpressing.com / for a minimum $5 donation.

Soupy from The Wonder Years explains, "Last Friday we woke up in Maryland to read the news about the earthquake that struck Northern Japan and as the hours rolled by, things seem to go from awful to, well, worse than awful. News of tsunamis, floods, fires, radiation leaks and more poured in as we sat feeling helpless in the van. The idea struck to maybe text a few of our friends to see if we could get five or six songs together for a short comp to benefit the victims of this tragedy. I think it really speaks to the sense of community we have in this scene that within the two hour drive to Delaware, over 20 bands agreed to be a part of this. The comp is a collection of primarily rare, hard to find or unreleased recordings. The storefront was donated to us by Limited Pressing and currently, Paypal is allowing you to send money to charities without taking any fees. This means that, aside from the standard fee Paypal may take out when money enters an account, 100% of the money will be going to Americares to help the Japanese."

Bought. I wish I hadn't spent so much on vinyls last month so I could donate more to all those organizations and projects after what happened...

I really wanted to buy this but my mother flipped because I bought Street Fighter for 80 cents for my ipod to help japan so I guess buying is out of the question.

Damn, track list looks so awesome
