New Age Midwest Fest compiles benefit comp

New Age Midwest Fest, taking place in two weeks in St. Louis, MO, will release a 15-band compilation this year to raise funds for the Dayton Foundation, an important resouce following the Oregon District Tragdy that took place in Dayton, OH last month.


The festival takes place on Sept. 28 (with a pre-show on Sept. 27) and features several bands. This year the label is also releasing the Actioni Over Words companion compilation:


"I had the idea to do a 'mixtape' of all the bands playing the fest. Kind of a promotion tool you can also have as a special keepsake. One of the first shows I ever went to, when I was probably 14, the flyer was a CD-R with a couple of songs from each band on it," says B, who co-produces alongside Nicholas. "That always stuck with me and I’ve wanted to do something like that forever. Then we got to talking and said why not make this a fundraiser? Comps are a great way for the scene to come together to raise money and awareness."


Bands included in both the festival and the compilation include Life Force, Kill Their Past, Heel Turn, Abraxas, Redbait, Mean Season, True Self, Treason, Dying For It, Decline, Brute Force, The Dividing Line, Disappear, Through N Through, and ThirdFace.

Visit New Age Records or The Dayton Foundation for more info. Festival tickets are also currently on sale.
