Release Text:
All profits from this release go to Santa Cruz based FleaHab (fleahab.org). Founded by legendary big wave surfer Darryl “Flea” Virostko, the mission of FleaHab is to provide a sober living environment in Santa Cruz focused on physical activity, in effect replacing the high of drugs with the endorphins of exercise. Combined with a nutritional menu and access to sports, yoga and other holistic support systems such as AA, FleaHab offers a new approach to sober living – and new hope for those afflicted by drugs and alcohol. Darryl is incorporating what he has learned to work for his sobriety into a concept to help others, and we want to help. FleaHab is a registered 501C3 non-profit organization. Find out more here: youtu.be/qB4VlswIpcU.

Since 2014, FleaHab has helped many men reclaim their lives from drug and alcohol addiction. FleaHab is now begun the fundraising effort for a sober living house for women in Santa Cruz. This benefit compilation reflects the surfing community’s desire to support our friends, neighbors and family members struggling with addiction.

Release Text:
“This release is the culmination of years of hard work from Zach Bridier (Captive Portal, October Bird of Death) and a host of luminaries from the punk community on both sides of the Atlantic. Each of the seven songs features a different vocalist who were given the opportunity to write their own lyrics. Despite this happening in locations separated by thousands of miles there are common themes of love, fellowship and bricolage. We hope you enjoy the fruit of these labours.” – ZAP Records
