Music is great—but when you can enjoy it for a great cause, it’s even better!  Hopeless Records, home to Stork Music favorites like All Time Low, Yellowcard, We Are The In Crowd and The Used, is releasing their 11th Take Action Compilation through Sub City.  In an effort to engage the music community in social causes, Hopeless Records started the Sub City concept in 1999 and has since raised over two million dollars for over 50 non-profit organizations.Take Action

Music is great—but when you can enjoy it for a great cause, it’s even better!  Hopeless Records, home to Stork Music favorites like All Time Low, Yellowcard, We Are The In Crowd and The Used, is releasing their 11th Take Action Compilation through Sub City.  In an effort to engage the music community in social causes, Hopeless Records started the Sub City concept in 1999 and has since raised over two million dollars for over 50 non-profit organizations.

Take Action Volume 11 is filled with unreleased, exclusive tracks and covers.  From The Used to Plug in Stereo, the compilation is as varied as Jack In The Box’s menu (weird chicken teriyaki and churros?).  With so many songs on the album, it’s easy to find something for everyone.  If you are a fan of more acoustic tunes, All Time Low, Never Shout Never and Mayday Parade offer options.

‘I Hope You Know’ by Plug In Stereo, featuring Tay Jardin from We Are The In Crowd is an happy, sing-along, painfully catchy track that will have you hitting repeat. Similar to ‘I Hope You Know’ is ‘Carelessly’ by The Scene Aesthetic.

If you are looking for something a little less poppy and indie coffee shop sounding, ‘London Is Burning’ by Itch is angsty, yet still catchy.

Glass Cloud’s cover of ‘Everybody Wants To Rule The World’ starts as a fresh cover of the classic, and then transforms into a crashing, almost unrecognizable cover—but a great one if you’re a fan of metalcore.

Take Action has something for everyone—pick up a copy on January 8th, enjoy some great music and support an amazing cause!
