DetailsWhen it comes to providing help to those in need, you can always count on musicians to do their part. To help communities impacted by the recent Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, some of today’s hottest bands have joined together with Global Green USA to release a benefit compilation entitled Gasoline Rainbows, out December 7 in Canada on Dine Alone Records. Gasoline Rainbows will be available exclusively as a digital download.
The compilation was brought together by actress Sophia Bush and actor Austin Nichols, most well known for their roles on the television show One Tree Hill. Sophia and Austin travelled, with Global Green, to Grand Isle, Louisiana, to visit the beaches and see the devastation wrought by the Deepwater Horizon spill first hand. Moved by the stretches of oil along the once-beautiful beaches, as well as the devastation to the wildlife, they decided to help in whatever way they could, and this compilation is a direct result of that.
100% of the artist and label proceeds from Gasoline Rainbows will be used for Global Green’s oil spill response to directly assist the communities, people, and ecosystems impacted by the BP Oil Spill, educate the public, push for more regulation (to ensure a tragedy like this never happens again) and advocate for a greener, cleaner economy.
The compilation includes a previously unreleased track from City and Colour, written by Dallas Green, who was moved by the images he saw during the news coverage of the Gulf Oil spill. Another highlight is a new, previously unreleased track from celebrated singer-songwriter Damien Rice. Other material featured on the compilation includes songs from the most popular names in music today including, Phoenix, The Black Keys, The National, LCD Soundsystem, Silversun Pickups, Vampire Weekend, amongst others.
