Hopeless Records celebrates its 20th anniversary today.
Label founder and president Louis Posen remarks:
“There is a proverb that says, ‘If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.’ We recognize these past 20 years have everything to do with the fortune and opportunity to work with amazing fans, co-workers, artists, managers, agents, distributors, retailers, media outlets, individuals and organizations. There aren't words to describe the level of gratitude and appreciation we feel for all those who have supported Hopeless Records and Sub City these first 20 years. We hope we have given to you as much as you have given to us.”
The label will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a private event at The Troubadour in West Hollywood on December 14, where they will raise awareness of the label's charity Sub City, which has collected over two million dollars for over 50 non profit organizations by connecting bands and fans to causes which they are passionate about. This event will support the Foundation Fighting Blindness which provides funding to research, prevention, treatments, and cures for degenerative diseases that lead to blindness.
Limited edition 20th anniversary merchandise will be sold on their web store along with select titles discounted on iTunes. Proceeds from the purchases will be donated to the Foundation Fighting Blindness.
