Future Astronauts, record label and music podcaster, has opened submissions for their 9th annual mental health awareness charity album ‘Vessels IX’.
Here at Insight Music, we have been privileged to support each year’s ‘Vessels’ album release. This year is no different, with Future Astronauts now accepting submissions for their next compilation album. Comprising of prominent ambient figures such as Subsets, SOULAR ORDER, 100 Day Delay, and others, expect to hear a fantastic compilation album. For a taste of previous releases, ‘Vessels VIII’ is available below.
The mission of Future Astronauts is to raise awareness for mental health struggles. All proceeds for the first several months of each album solely go towards the Mental Health Foundation (UK) and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. At some point in each of our lives, we will be touched personally by the struggles of mental health crises, and the work the artists at Future Astronauts are doing is a very pure cause.
