With the recent spike in suicide rates amongst the masses and our favourite artists, mental health has become an important talking point more than ever before. Over the past couple of years, we have had many brilliant and talented artists go down in line falling prey to depression, trauma, mental health issues etc. Mental health has become the most important topic health wise on this day. Depression lets one down and is a downward spiral sometimes eventually leading to self harm and suicide, the band has done a great job in highlighting and talking about this virus that dwells in the society. Here’s what the band has to say about the new song, “Razors” and what it truly conveys.
“In a short period of time, we have seen a prominent rise in topics that focus on mental health. With that being said, we continue to see countless lives being taken away due to suicide and self-harm. “Razors” is a song that expresses the importance of one’s voice when searching for help. In a world that is constantly filled with pain, we commonly think that we are alone and can’t be heard. In many cases, it is hard for those who struggle with depression and mental health to break through what is holding them back. In this song, we wanted to let the listener know that help is not as far away as one may think is. This song focuses on the importance of utilizing one’s voice and the realization that there are people out there fighting their own battles, just like you. We hope this song can also shed light on the importance of taking notice of the signs of depression and self harm. Unfortunately, we all know what the end results of suicide are. We wanted to use this video to tell a story of how the sometimes all-too familiar feeling of being alone and helpless affects an individual . Help is never too far away and to those reading this who are.”
