Following last week's official announcement of the international, multi-artist collaboration, Hear 'n Now, benefiting those affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic, project organizer Keep it Metal Promotions announced they have partnered with Heaven and Hell Records (US) to officially release the initiative's new single, "No Road to Ruin."

"Having them on board and part of this project demonstrates to me that music is alive and well...this is what music is all about; what it can do for others...especially in times of crisis."
Heaven and Hell Records will make the Hear 'n Now single, “No Road to Ruin,” available as a free digital download through their distribution networks. Listeners will also be able to contribute to a donation collection that will benefit The Center for Disaster Philanthropy's (CDP) Global Recovery Fund for COVID-19 relief efforts.

"So honored to be working with such an array of talented musicians," said "No Road to Ruin" songwriter and Corners of Sanctuary guitarist, Mick Michaels. "It's an amazing feeling to be part of a project like this...it really is a testament to the power and magic of music."
