Last month, Riley Gale tragically left this plane of existence at only 34 years young. Riley and his band Power Trip changed a lot of lives with their relentless tour schedule, forceful live performances, and a cultivated atmosphere of inclusion and empathy. Riley, both as the band’s lead singer, and as a human being, was the best that the hardcore scene had to offer and we are all worse off for his passing.

To celebrate Riley’s life, Triple BB records have unveiled a T-Shirt that they will be selling as a fundraiser for Dallas Hope Charities. All orders will come with a free download of the AHC Volume 1 Compilation which was the debut of Power Trip’s “Hammer of Doubt”.

From DHC’s website: “Dallas Hope Charities unites to care for those in need throughout our social and geographical communities. By collaborating and hosting several programs, we are fulfilling our mission of providing food, shelter, and services that instill dignity, stability, and hope for all.”

Preorders for the Riley Gale Benefit Shirt can be found here.

Rest in Power
