“Whenever Tom Lugo reaches out to his musical family, you know it’s for a crucial and essential cause. The Rock Back for Nepal CD compilation is no exception. I’m proud to be part of this relief effort/fund raiser for anyone affected by the recent earthquake disaster in Nepal and if I can help or contribute in some way to aid support and assistance to the many displaced people, I will without question. Please support this cause and donate as generously as you can.”
Alexx Kretov of Canadian-Ukrainian duo, Ummagma, also expressed his hopes for the compilation stating,
“May the common freebie attitude towards indie music fall to the wayside. We hope people will support a higher cause by spending a few dollars and spreading this music far and wide.”
The concept for the Rock Back compilation series started back in 2011 when label owner of Patetico Records, Tom Lugo, had an idea of how he could help the victims of the earthquake disaster in Japan; by gathering a community of artists that he had in his network and releasing a compilation, Rock Back For Japan, in which the profits would be donated to relief efforts. The compilation was a huge success hitting the top 10 Indie Rock Releases on Amazon.com‘s chart for several weeks with certain volumes holding the number 1 spot.
