Heaerts Combine, an international compilation of 25 EBM/industrial bands, was released on 22 March through LÆBEL. The goal of the release is to raise money for living and medical expenses for industrial/EBM legend Claus Larsen (Leaether Strip, Klutae, Am Tierpark, Mirland/Larsen, the Stricken) and his husband Kurt Grünewald Hansen, who is unfortunately very sick, which makes it difficult for the couple to earn their living through touring.
Based on an original idea by Jonathan Kaplan (For All The Emptiness), tracks were compiled by John R. Mirland (LÆBEL, Am Tierpark, Mirland/Larsen, Mirland) and Troy Hilton (DSOL Productions) with artwork arranged by Jonathan Kaplan and mastering provided by Sebastian Komor (Komor Commando).
The compilation’s impressive track list includes names such as Die Krupps, Psyche feat. Dirk Ivens, SKOLD, Mortiis and many more. All were asked to deliver an exclusive track making this compilation a must have for collectors.
All profits go directly to Claus Larsen and Kurt Grünewald Hansen.
