Today is Bandcamp Friday and once again musicians around the world will have the aid of one of the greatest music services this world has to offer. Since the COVID-19 hit the world, so far Bandcamp has helped artists sell $75 million worth of music during previous Bandcamp Fridays. All that money goes directly to the artists since Bandcamp waves their revenue share during these special days.
For hardcore and punk fans there is a fantastic compilation album being released this Friday featuring some heavy canons in the scene such as Minority Threat, Racetraitor, War On Women, SECT, Modern Life Is War, Sunn 0))), Jesus Piece and many more. All proceeds of the 46-song compilation will go to Movement for Black Lives (m4bl.org).

On their webpage Bandcamp co-founder and CEO Ethan Diamond writes: “It’s a good reminder that Bandcamp Fridays are really an extension of what Bandcamp is about every day. Thank you to all the artists and labels who shared their music with us, and the fans who spent their hard-earned coins to support the artists they love.
Because the pandemic is far from over, we’ll continue to hold Bandcamp Fridays on the first Friday of every month until the end of the year. A more detailed calendar is below.”
