Pat Egan, longtime Director of Retail Sales at Relapse Records, tragically passed away on Monday, February 18th after a battle with pneumonia and related complications. In honor of the man who was so instrumental in the success of so many Relapse bands and records, the label has put together a 20-track compilation featuring a collection of his favorite songs and artists, including MASTODON, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, BRIAN POSEHN, RED FANG, DEATH, and many more, including a never-before-released track from Exhumed.
100% of proceeds from the compilation will go towards a college fund for his young daughter Katie. Relapse thanks each band for contributing each track and waiving their royalty fee to maximize the benefit for Pat’s beloved family. The compilation is available via Bandcamp at this location
