Kalamazoo, Michigan - Suckerpush just confirmed they would be included in the International Music Compilation "The Greatest Music Never Heard" Volume 1, to help benefit The Breakthrough Breast Cancer Research Centre in London, England.

The process of elimination was pain staking for the Producers at Mosquito Media in London. There were hundreds of Independent artists and bands that sent their music in hopes to be involved in this project. Suckerpush's song "Dollar Sign Eyes" will be featured as one of the tracks on the CD. There will be 18 tracks on the CD with only 5 making it from the United States. The best of the best Independent bands and artists from all over the world were chosen on talent, lyrics and music.

"The Greatest Music Never Heard" Volume 1, will be released in England, Europe and the United States, becoming an International tribute to Independent artists. Suckerpush's band members feel that when there is a need for causes such as The Breakthrough Breast Cancer Research Centre the music and imagery of musicians brings people together to find a way to help raise money and help bring awareness to needy causes. They feel honored to be part of this project and helping to raise money for such a needed cause.

The CD will be released on May 18th through an extensive campaign on UK National Radio stations, Television and print media by Mosquito Media followed by a showcase at the Cobden Club in Knotting Hill, London. Mosquito Media is working within the music industry in the States for a bigger push internationally.
