Charitable Project SAVE THE NOIZE Announces New Benefit Track “Save The Noize 2” – Out November 19th

Save The Noize is a charity project started by Rasmus Harnesk Wiklund (Hårdrock – För Fan! – Podcast, Corey Duvette, Veritas) and Jesper Lindgren (Velvet Insane) at the end of 2020. The project was started to aid the Musikerförbundets Crisis Foundation. In April 2021 the song “Save The Noize ” was released via Sound Pollution Distribution on digital/streaming platforms, along with a music video for the song. The track was written by Erik Modin (Wildness) and Martin Sweet (Crashdiet). The song was produced by Roger Bergsten (Nevo Studios) and mastered by Thomas Plec, with the music video being produced by Gustav Kronfelt, who has done music videos for Dregen and Electric Boys, to name a few. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyone, and notably career musicians, both in Sweden and around the world. Because of this, musicians from the U.S., Sweden, Norway, and Denmark came together under the banner of Save The Noize to raise money for charity. This movement is reminiscent of Swedish Metal Aid in 1985 or Hear ‘n Aid in 1986, where musicians came together for charity. But this time, this new wave of artists are coming together to save their own jobs and help their community weather the storm. 
Artists that appeared on this modern and socially relevant track (Save The Noize 1), to name a few: Tony Harnell (TNT), Jesper Binzer (D.A.D), Åge Sten Nilsen & Trond Holter (WIG WAM), Pontus Norgren (Hammerfall), and Ryan Roxie (Alice Cooper). A total of 30 something musicians and artists came together for this common cause.

Now, after this massively successful project, Rasmus Harnesk Wiklund and Jesper Lindgren present ‘Save The Noize 2’! The next offering from Save The Noize is a pure follow-up to the first track. It’s the same track but in a totally new and different take. Fewer artists are guesting the second track but bigger names get to take part, with the focus on the international market. With this new version and the accompanying music video, the mission is to show that the light at the end of the tunnel is finally here. Musicians can slowly but surely come out and play, return to the road, and come back to their jobs. We want to give hope and show that we made it through this together! And just like the first iteration, ‘Save The Noize 2’ will benefit the Musikerförbundets Crisis Foundation.

“Save The Noize 2” is scheduled for release on November 19th, 2021 via Sound Pollution!
