Rock band Telltale has released a brand new cover of Rise Against’s original track “Help Is On The Way”, out now via Rude Records. The cover is part of the upcoming Rude Records project, “Changing Tides”, through the label’s charitable arm Rude Cares. Rude Records’ charity branch is dedicated to fighting poverty, inequality and discrimination. Rude Records artists taking part in this project have recorded cover songs on environmental topics to raise their voices for a more sustainable environment. With each song, profits will be donated to the cause of “raising awareness and making the world a better place” through music. 100% of collected funds with the distribution of the cover songs will benefit Sea Shepherd.
Speaking on the upcoming Changing Tides project, Rude Records’ General Manager and A&R Federico Croci shares, “Changing Tides has the purpose of raising awareness on our planet’s safeguarding and as a Company and a B-Corp we’re particularly attentive and concerned about such important topics. With the launch of Changing Tides, Rude Cares will focus on increasing awareness and help protecting our environment through the voices of our artists”.

“Telltale is proud to present our cover of ‘Help Is On The Way’ by Rise Against in partnership with Rude Records for their Changing Tides compilation. We chose this song because it’s a call to action in response to the effects of climate change” shares Telltale bassist Tim Fogg“Hurricane Katrina was such a major event in US history and it brought the effects of global warming to the forefront of the national media. I spent a week helping clean up the beaches and community of Biloxi, Mississippi in 2006 so this song really speaks to me. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Sea Shepherd on this release – all streaming profits benefit their efforts to conserve the world’s ocean and marine wildlife. We encourage you to check out their mission statement over at seashepherd.org”.
