Suicide is the leading cause of deaths among young people, so even though there are numerous resources out there for people who are contemplating suicide, it never seems like there’s enough when someone close to you takes their own life unexpectedly.
With the recent death of Robin Williams ion which he took his own life, you start to realize that the signs are not always there for people who are contemplating taking such a big step and ending their lives. Even the person who seems to have their life all together might not be as put together as they seem.
In a way, Circa Survive frontman Anthony Green is trying to do his part by selling two new songs, “East Coast Winter” and “I’m So Sorry For Everything I’ve Ever Done” which are available on his bandcamp account, with all proceeds from the sales going directly to the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention.
“I’m excited to share these two new songs with everyone. Music has always been my way of dealing with some of the loneliest and darkest times in my life and these songs helped me ring out some serious stuff that was going on in my head. I share them with you for free in hopes that if you are able you will help support the American association for suicide prevention. 100% of the donations will go to them. I’ve had to deal first hand with the debilitating effects of suicide and depression is something I think effects everyone in one way or another. Please help spread the word about this organization.”
Aside from his contribution to the foundation, it was just announced that Circa Survive will be releasing a CD/DVD deluxe edition of their fourth studio album Violent Waves through Sumerian Records on September 9. Pre-orders are currently up on Sumerian’s merchandise site.
