In September 2009 a casual conversation led to a bold attempt to bring
together some of the biggest names from the goth and dark alternative scenes to raise funds for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation

Sophie Lancaster was kicked to death in August 2007 simply because she looked different.
Since her tragic death the Foundation has worked hard to bring about change, through workshops in schools and a campaign for an amendment to the UK Hate Crime laws.

“Hope” has been put together with the sole intention of raising the
maximum amount of money possible, with 100% of the price paid going directly to the charity.

The CD features unreleased material and tracks written especially for the foundation.
Every track has been kindly donated free of charge by the artist and it has been released in conjunction with World Goth Day (May 22nd 2010)

Andi Sex Gang – Salamun Child

Quick FAQ

Audio Life T Shirts

Q: Printing Method?

We use a new digital technology that chemically bonds ink to cotton molecules, resulting in brilliant colors and sharp photographic quality with no overprint around the edges. The image is soft, breathable, vibrant and durable – nothing like the stiff “decal” feel that results from heat-transfer or screen print methods. Images are fade resistant and machine washable, with a fastness equal to or better than other print methods on 100% cotton.

Audiolife’s on demand merchandise is typically manufactured and shipped within 2-4 business days from the time an order is placed

UK Decay new material?

The band are currently writing some new material with the aim of recording during the forthcoming summer. It’s too early to say what form a possible release might take at this point. But “An album would be a nice idea” quoted Spon. Abbo is said to have some very strong lyrical ideas and with the wealth of experience gained by most of the guys in the years since the first era of Decay, it will be “very interesting to see what gives”
We can all only wait and see!
