Northeastern Pennsylvania bands Title Fight, The Menzingers, Petal and Tigers Jaw are among 49 acts that have contributed songs to the compilation “Forever Beautiful: A Collection of Love for Orlando.”

The Title Fight track featured on the release is “Dust Collector,” a b-side from the sessions for their 2015 album “Hyperview,” while The Menzingers offered an acoustic version of “Deep Sleep,” a song from their 2010 full-length “Chamberlain Waits.” Petal’s track “Left A Mark” from their debut EP “Scout” is also featured on the compilation, as well as Tigers Jaw’s “Cluster (Cave People).”

The track list includes Pennsylvania musicians Anti-Flag, Anthony Green, Slingshot Dakota and Modern Baseball, as well as national acts Bad Religion, New Found Glory, Kevin Devine and Taking Back Sunday.

All proceeds from the release, available at www.srbproductions.bandcamp.com, will be donated to OneOrlando Fund, a non-profit created in the aftermath of the June 12 shooting at Orlando, Florida nightclub Pulse. Forty-nine people died in the incident and 53 others were injured. Gunman Omar Mateen died after being shot by police. According to OneOrlando.org, OneOrlando was announced by Mayor Buddy Dyer to ensure funds donated are “dispersed in a timely, accountable and transparent manner.”

The minimum price for the compilation is $1; buyers can choose to donate more during checkout.
