Giants have released a 22-track compilation to raise awareness for the Long Live Southbank campaign to save the legendary skate park in London. The compilation is available for free download at Giants’ Bandcamp and features a lot of talented bands, including the appearance of Frank Turner who recorded a cover song specifically for this compilation.

“We were overwhelmed beyond belief with the response from bands across the country for this release” – say Giants. – We wanted to get the compilation out as soon as possible to help the Long Live Southbank campaign as much as we could, so check it out and enjoy the music and sign yourself up to support this great cause and help save Southbank with LLSB! Extra massive thanks goes out to Frank Turner for recording a cover song exclusively for the compilation in his living room!”

By downloading the compilation you give permission to sign up to membership of the LongLiveSouthbank campaign, organisation of skateboarders, locals and supporters around the world who aim at preventing the worlds oldest known ‘skatespot’ Southbank, from being demolished to make way for retail units like Starbucks.
