The Troops Rock New Albums
Three new full-length compilations of [military]-songwriters - To The Fallen Records Presents: Rock Volume 2, Hip-Hop Volume 2 and Country Volume 2 - will be released this October, and together represent the latest and greatest from active and veteran U.S. Armed Forces musicians.
The music heard on To The Fallen Records releases is created by artists stationed overseas, who set up studios in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as by artists stationed in Europe, Asia and the United States. Lyrics come straight from the artists' mouths and describe their most private and intense moments, telling the stories and experiences of being a Marine, soldier, airman or sailor in today's military. The songs on the compilation offer moving portrayals of the varied experiences of both active soldiers and veterans of combat, while embracing everything from plaintive country ballads to gritty, guitar-driven rock jams and lyrically hard-hitting rap tracks. The label is also dedicated to giving back to its artists and their communities, as a percentage of all To The Fallen Records profits are donated to organizations assisting those who have fallen in the line of duty or have become disabled while serving their country.
The first volumes of To The Fallen Records' genre-specific compilations were immediately met with overwhelmingly positive acclaim from both the military and civilian communities worldwide upon their release in 2007.
To The Fallen Records Presents: Rock Volume 2, Hip-Hop Volume 2 and Country Volume 2 will be available at Green Beans Coffee locations worldwide. Green Beans Coffee Worldcafés offer a taste of home for soldiers, with shops throughout the Middle East--including military posts in Iraq and Afghanistan where no other civilian companies are willing to operate--as well as Southwest Asia, Africa, and the United States.
