The Wonder Years & More on Japan Relief Album

The Wonder Years, Valencia and Title Fight are among several bands that have joined forces to release an album in aid of Japan's recent disasters.

The compilation of rare tracks, entitled 'Vs. The Earthquake', can be purchased at
for a minimum donation.

Soupy from the wonder years said: "Last Friday we woke up in Maryland to read the news about the earthquake that struck Northern Japan and as the hours rolled by, things seem to go from awful to worse than awful. News of tsunamis, floods, fires, radiation leaks and more poured in as we sat feeling helpless in the van.

"I think it really speaks to the sense of community we have in this scene that within the two hour drive to Delaware, over 20 bands agreed to be a part of this. The comp is a collection of primarily rare, hard to find or unreleased recordings."
