For Fans Of
The kind hearted folk over at Hopeless and Sub City Records have done it again. That’s
right, in celebration of the annual “Take Action Tour” the two most
charitable record labels currently doing the rounds have released another
CD/DVD combo for the music fan that enjoys listening to a wealth of
different bands. In keeping with tradition, the tour’s diverse line
up should silence even the harshest of critics, as everyone from the
loud mouthed Every Time I Die to the soulful acoustic jams of Meg & Dia gets a look in on this compilation.
Regardless of your musical taste
I’m sure there is something that you’ll enjoy on Take Action Volume
7. Opening with a few words from ETID axe man Andy Williams
(along with his band’s current single) you’ll be treated to current
tracks from recent Canadian visitors Silverstein, Soundwave drop
outs Chiodos and the new look From First To Last. If that
doesn’t impress you then the pop leanings of Motion City Soundtrack, All Time Low and Cute Is What We Aim For make for an impressive
trifecta, while the heavier end of the comp is picked up by Drop
Dead Gorgeous, Thrice and The Bled.
Considering this package only
sets you back $10 most people would be satisfied with the twenty songs
on offer, however Hopeless/Sub City and have also included
another twenty video clips courtesy of the DVD component.
Again, the expected singles are
given a fair run, with the previously mentioned MotionCity
Soundtrack, The Plain White T’s and the always amusing Hellogoodbye contributing their promotional videos to a good cause. MxPx, All Time Low and the most hyped act of 2008 Four
Year Strong all prove that the pop punk revival is well and truly
on the way (thanks Kelly).
little heavier then the second of the disc should keep you happy, with The Red Chord, The Human Abstract, A Life Once Lost, High On Fire, August Burns Red and Suicide Silence
all doing their best to make a racket.
If you’re running low and cash
and you want to check out a bunch of new bands then this is the best
way to do it… it makes for a great mix for a road trip as well.
