The iconic London venue is in danger of closing forever.
If you have ever been to Camden Town, you will have surely passed by or visited The Black Heart.
An iconic pub and venue that has played host to plenty of bands and plenty more messy nights, because of the ongoing pandemic it is in danger of closing for good.
In a bid to help the venue reach its target of £150,000, a load of bands have come together for a special vinyl boxset.
Put together by The Rock Fix, the 'Save The Black Heart' boxset comes with three 7' records and features these tracks:
Loathe - 'New Faces In The Dark' Our Hollow, Our Home – 'Speak of Sorrow' Immerse – 'Red Shade' Venom Prison – 'Officer Down' (Stampin' Ground Cover) Bad Touch – 'Come A Little Closer' Take The Backseat, Casey – 'Suffer'
Loathe had this to say about the venue:
“The Black Heart was one of the first to open its doors to Loathe during our infancy and grant us with the opportunity to present our show to music lovers from down south. For that the venue holds a very dear place in our hearts. Venues much like The Black Heart are essential to the well being and progression of, not just live music but music as a whole - with each grassroots venue serving as somewhat of a booster or platform to present fresh, new art. Please help to not let these amazing places that house amazing memories and opportunities for thousands of music lovers out there go to waste.”
And Our Hollow, Our Home's Connor Hallisey had this to say:
“The Black Heart isn’t just a venue, it’s much, much more. As upcoming artists, we’ve seen first-hand how venues like this are imperative to the creative industry, and furthermore not just for musicians, but for venue staff, the promoters, and most importantly the fans. The Black Heart will always have our support, and we hope you’ll be able to help them in any way that you can too.”
The set is a 'Pay What You Want' price, with the minimum set at £19.99 so that at least £5 of each sale can go directly to The Black Heart.
