All proceeds go to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank for relief from the Louisiana floods of 2016. The compilation features a range of exclusive tracks from acclaimed metal acts including The Body & Full of Hell covering Devo, Thou covering Neil Young, special live tracks from SUMAC and Old Man Gloom, and a solo live recording by Mike Scheidt of Yob, as well as Louisiana DIY mainstays Heavy Mantle, Dovonan Wolfington, Caddywhompus and more.
“I spent the better part of three weeks after the flood driving around neighborhoods looking for homes to help out. Every day after work and pretty much all day on the weekends was spent gutting damaged homes. You could tell by looking at a house, that if it didn’t have refuse and debris scattered around outside of it, it probably needed some help getting cleared out. We’d see a house without anything on the front lawn, and just go knock on the door and see if people needed help clearing things out. Once a house has had water in it for that long, all the wood gets swollen and rots and mold sets in, so you have to take it all out - sheet rock and all. A practice space we had been sharing with a slew of other bands was totally wrecked, and countless bands I know had their spaces and equipment destroyed.
When Mitch was getting this benefit together, he asked what organization would make sense to donate to. I told him the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, as they had been really amazing and helpful during the aftermath of the flood, and they themselves had even been completely flooded out.
I was thrilled to have so many local Louisiana bands on the compilation. All of those bands come from the same DIY community based background. Punk, pop, metal, whatever. They represent all kinds of music, but they all come from a similar, supportive culture.” - Josh Nee (Thou)
