The Take Action! Tour and the annual compilation CD aim to raise money and awareness for teen suicide prevention by directly benefiting the Kristen Brooks Hopecenter--founders of the Youth America Hotline! (YAH!).

Matchbook Romance and their label, Epitaph, have shown a strong commitment to supporting the Kristin Brooks Hopecenter and the Youth America Hotline. Sub City Records is looking forward to a tour that will make a meaningful impact in the lives of many young people.
The Youth America Hotline! (Yah!) was founded by the Kristen Brooks Hopecenter to help teens through peer-to-peer counseling, pairing teens in need with qualified teen counselors.
Since 1999 Sub City Records (Part of Hopeless Records) has raised over $600,000 for various charities chosen by the label and their artists.
More bands and dates will be announced soon. Sub City Records will also be announcing
