Putney commented:

“To be honest I was initially torn about doing this. The distaste and rage I have for our systemic issues in this country are more palpable than they ever have been. But I am NOT the voice of the oppressed, and I would never pretend to be.

What I can do is sit down with my fellow artists, friends, peers, and heroes alike and start a conversation about what we CAN do to support institutions for positive change, because something HAS to change. And the money that will roll in from this event will go to the experts. The ACLU. The Civil Rights organization that has fought for the purest form of free speech, justice, and equality for ONE HUNDRED YEARS (let one hundred years sink in for a second). The work that they are heavily involved in today aims to tackle these systemic issues.

The artists who will appear on this livestream come from different corners of life, different upbringings, different tax brackets. Naturally, some people are more comfortable expressing their opinions and beliefs to the public than others. I ask that you do not expect fire and brimstone from everyone, and do not scorn those who’d like to have a lighthearted conversation about music. The act of participating and donating sought after items to a worthy charity should be enough for you to understand their intentions.

This raffle will be one for the books. Extremely rare items, tons of merch, test presses and limited vinyl, music gear, it goes on and on. A lot of those involved are bringing something special and I truly thank them for parting with sacred items.

The link is live to start donating now. We will be announcing more details and giveaways soon.

If you’d like to participate on any level just message me.

Go big or go home.”

Nick Lee said the following about signing with Pure Noise:

“Moon Tooth is ecstatic to announce we have signed with Pure Noise Records. From day one the four members of this band have treated our music and the way we operate as an extension of ourselves. We are proud to be on a label and surrounded by artists with the same integrity and we are so incredibly excited about the future we can build with this new family.”

John Carbone also added the following about the video:

“A long time friend of the band, Taylor Graham is a kindred spirit in that the devotion and passion she pours into her art is honest, vulnerable and courageous Tom Flynn is our go to director. His attitude, ability, and the work he produces have brought us back to him four times now. Having covered a lot of ground in our previous videos, we saw this as a chance to let these two great artists explore and express themselves. They were given very little direction from the band, only having been reminded of an important theme of the song: the purging of old wounds.”

Scott Vogel said the following::

“After a great run of releasing records with Century Media and Victory for the last 10 years, it’s exciting to find a fresh, new home for Terror. We are humbled to still be a band with a lot of love and support around the world, and Pure Noise Records is exactly who we wanted to work with for our future. We look forward to the next chapter in this wild ride and couldn’t be happier to be doing it together with Jake [of Pure Noise Records.]”
