From Zia Records’ blog:

“Zia Records is proud to announce the release and track list of our newest local music compilation, You Heard Us Back When, Volume 10, on sale at all Zia stores on National Record Store Day, Saturday April 16th!

This year, marks the 10th installment of our You Heard Us Back When Phoenix/Tucson/Las Vegas local music compilation. We released our first comp way back on the inaugural Record Store Day in 2008, inspired by the compilations we put out in the ’80s and ’90s. Throughout the YHUBW series, we’ve showcased a wide variety of the sounds from the cities Zia calls home and raised thousands of dollars for locally-based charities.

This year, we’re excited to feature more sounds than ever before, spread across two discs. From funk to punk, rock to hip-hop, these discs represent the wide variety of sounds happening in our hometowns. From established artists like Mega Ran, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers and The Vermin to up-and-coming bands like the Endless Pursuit, Found in Fiction and Resurgence Girls, the comp features 41 songs for $3 dollars – a great Record Store Day deal, with proceeds going to charity!

In addition to the two-disc compilation, we’re making a special 10th anniversary collection available on Record Store Day as well. Featuring songs culled from our previous volumes, the collection offers a snap shot of some of our favorite songs from the last eight years, featuring Roger Clyne, The Love Me Nots, Tesoro, The Breakup Society, Roll Acosta and more.

And just because we believe there’s no such thing as too much local music, we’re taking things a step further and featuring every submission we received for the 2016 Zia Records local compilation on a special playlist available exclusively at www.ziarecords.com. Featuring over 300 songs, the playlist is a testament to the wealth of sounds going on in our own backyard.

Each year, proceeds from the sales of the local compilation go to charity. In recent months, cancer took many great members of the music community from us, and has touched all our lives in some way. So this year we decided to team with the Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children and the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation. All proceeds raised from the sale of this comp go to those great organizations. We will be taking donations for both charities at all eight Zia Records locations starting Record Store Day as well, running through the month.A big thank you to the artists for contributing to this great cause, and seek out both charities to find out how you can help more.

We hope you love the artists on You Heard Us Back When, Volume 10, and we encourage you to get out there and see them live. For more information on the bands featured on the compilation, click on the links below. See you at the stores on Record Store Day! And remember….Zia loves you!”
