Last year, Hopeless Records launched the 'Songs That Saved My Life' compilation - an album made up of cover songs by bands in our world that mean something to them.
But it's not just a one-off album - Songs That Saved My Life is a brand centered around music that played a pivotal role in the lives of artists and fans that benefits mental health and suicide prevention charities. Everyone has music that helped them through a tough time. Songs That Saved My Life looks to engage current artists with cover versions of those songs and share those stories with the world. This project benefits a variety of mental health and suicide prevention organisations. Currently, this project benefits Crisis Text Line, Hope For The Day, The Trevor Project, and To Write Love On Her Arms.
Overnight the second volume of 'Songs That Saved My Life' was announced, and it features covers from the likes of State Champs, With Confidence, Mayday Parade and more.
