Lazlo's Corner

As you may know, the last 2 years I have put together 2 Rock Against Hate ( compilation albums to benefit worthy causes (The Trevor Project, and Planned Parenthood)

I am now starting to put together Rock Against Hate Volume 3, to benefit KIND (Kids In Need of Defense).

KIND helps protect the basic human rights of refugee and immigrant children in the United States, many of whom come to escape abuse and persecution. More info on KIND can be found at

I think now, unfortunately, KIND is more important than ever.

What we are looking for are original songs that are previously unreleased, this can include an exclusive version (remix, live, acoustic, etc) of a song that has been previously released. These songs would need to stay exclusive to this compilation for the first few months of release, after which they are yours to release again if you wish.

The plan is to have all song submissions by April 1st, and put the compilation out in early May.

If you are interested in donating a song to this benefit compilation, please let me know.

Thank you!
