After an outpouring of support from the local music scene, Long Island Emo have once more teamed up with the Amityville Music Hall for the release of The AMH Comp: Volume Two, following the release of Volume One earlier this year. Available exclusively on Bandcamp, 100% of the proceeds from the release will go towards the Long Island venue and their staff, who have for years created a strong sense of community for music fans and local and touring acts alike. Although New York and other states across the country have allowed performance venues to reopen, for many places like Amityville Music Hall it’s not feasible to open at 33% capacity, which would equate to just 25 people. 

Featuring 34 songs from both Long Island staples and emerging artists, the compilation spans new originals, covers, and stripped-down versions, expansive of every genre from punk and hardcore to indie rock and singer-songwriters. One of the highlights comes from melodic hardcore act Crime In Stereo, who open the compilation with The Good Empire, marking the band’s first new music since their 2010 album, I Was Trying To Describe You To Someone. Additional contributions come from acts like Iron ChicMoon ToothMacsealTwentythreenineteenBlame God, and Victory Garden. The AMH Comp: Volume Two is available now for a $15 donation on Bandcamp. To coincide with the release, an exclusive print is also now available for purchase here with funds benefiting the venue.
