The guitarist of ferocious Japanese hardcore punk band Forward is now accepting tracks from bands from all over the world for a very special benefit compilation. Currently, as is the case all over the world, Japanese venues are having a very hard time staying afloat. There have been a number of bands and initiatives that people have started to help support venues to get through this dark period.
Our friends at Pit Bar have released special “Unite” t-shirts and they’ll use the money to raised and actually donate it to a BUNCH of venues not just in Japan but in South Korea and Malaysia as well! HELL YEAH!
The venue that they’re supporting are:
GBN [South Korea]
RUMAH API [Malaysia]

So our friend in Forward is collecting music from bands who have played and toured Japan to see if they would like to donate songs to the compilation he’s putting together. If you’ve been to Japan before and are willing to send him a song then email it to him: nucleararmedhogs@gmail. com
Good luck Japan!
