“Dear supporter,

We are back, just in time to close 2020, with a very strong new volume in the by now legendary Face The Beat series powered by Side-Line.

Side-Line has always been about getting new bands in the spotlights for a bigger public to discover them. And this new volume continues that good old tradition of course. We again went talent hunting in the dark music world so you are also getting a great selection of starting bands from allover the world which often offer here their very first public release.

You’ll also notice that we have a lot more bands on board this time, , 139 bands in total, and that’s also corona related as many if not all were confined at home and decided to record brand new material. It also explains why it took a bit longer to complete this 6th session as we received an avalanche of tracks which we had to go through once the deadline for submissions was over.

All proceedings will again go to the various charities we support. You can also support this project with recurrent donations at www.side-line.com/donations/ if you wish to, or simply donate here on Bandcamp when you download the compilation.

A BIG thank you to all the bands who have offered their material to be used in this compilation, without you this would not have been possible! United we show that we have our heart at the right place!

Stay safe, stay healthy and cross your fingers for a better 2021!
released December 30, 2020
