Umor Rex donate all Bandcamp sales to the Red Cross in Mexico

In the aftermath of Mexico's 7.1 magnitude earthquake last Tuesday, Umor Rex will be donating all sales money to the rescue effort

Mexico City's Umor Rex record label and publishing house have announced that from today until 15 October they will be donating 100% of monies raised via digital sales on Bandcamp to the Red Cross in Mexico.

“As you may know, our beloved town, Mexico City was devastated the last Tuesday for a terrible earthquake,” says the label's Daniel Castrejon. “We are working hard doing rescue labors, lifting debris, designing infographics to inform,” he continues. “Unfortunately, we need more than our hard work to achieve the normality. We love our city and our people, but the corruption is present in the political class. So WE, the people are taking the problem in our shoulders.”

You can check out the catalogue, featuring artists such as Kara-Lis Coverdale and LXV, Félicia Atkinson, M. Geddes Gengras, Driftmachine, Rafael Anton Irisarri, Missing Organs (the project of Wire writer Tristan Bath) and loads more, at their Bandcamp page. Alternatively you can donate directly to Mexico's Red Cross via PayPal.
