CONTACT / MISSION

GREAT DISMAL COLLECTIVE – greatdismalva@gmail.com – feel free to contact us regarding anything
Our goal is to stand as a progressive, politically aware antidote to the apathetic posturing that all-too-frequently dominates the heavy music scene. Racial diversity, gender equality, queer and trans rights, safer spaces, anti-capitalism, and non-violent creative expression of sincere emotion are all super-important to us. If they’re important to you, we hope you’ll come help us create a more broad-minded, inclusive community around the music we all love so much.
