As Manchester is High Violet's home and we know the guys involved in this project it was only right that we should help spread the word about this amazing compilation CD, with more than 200 tracks, is still available.

Manchester With Love aims to help the families of those affected by the tragic events at the arena in May.  As you can hear from the sampler album attached in the press pack the music of Manchester has and always will be hard to beat. 

MANCHESTER WITH LOVE, the compilation CD has raised £1,757,935 and over $2.2million USD. The Ariana Grande Concert also raised $2.6million donations in three hours.

Without hesitation one can be sure that every mother, father, son, daughter, husband, wife or friend, would prefer just to have their loved home back home.

After the atrocities at the Manchester Arena last month, the people of the city did what they do best, pulled together and showed the world their amazing spirit.
