LET US PREY Releases In Suffering Video in Support of Mental Health May Awareness month
Boston-based melodic power/thrash group LET US PREY has unveiled the music video for “In Suffering”, the latest single from the bands 2020 full-length debut, “Virtues of the Vicious”. The clip can be viewed now at https://youtu.be/67CRmj9ndng
Both the track and the music video are based on deeply personal emotional
struggles that vocalist Marc Lopes battled during the writing and recording of the record, and the video is being released in support of Mental Health Awareness Month efforts during the month of May.
“This is a different shade of the large palette to what Let Us Prey does but is very much a part of what we do,” says Lopes. “We believe heavy doesn’t always have to be barking vocals at a thousand miles a hour (which we do and love as well lol). In Suffering is a very personal dark journey I endured while writing and recording the Virtues of the Vicious record. Dealing with depression and other aspects of mental dis-ease (as we like to call it, rather than a disease) is no easy task for myself and many. I wanted to release this song in awareness of the grossly overlooked issues of various forms of depression, anxiety and the such among so many, especially teens and young adults. Suicide at the moment is at an all time high stemming from the current state of the world.
Being alone and in one own mind for long periods of time can bring our friend darkness (as I call it) to come play and wreak havoc with our well being. So many suffer in silence and shouldn’t have to. There is help on many levels these days and by all means, if you are at that near breaking point, PLEASE reach out. May is Mental Heath Awareness month, so it seems right to release such a song. I would leave this tune up to the
individuals interpretation, as I think it will resonate differently for each listener. It’s a metaphorical journey into my psyche at the time of writing this. It’s actually first of a two-part story. The later is coming soon as well, but for now please check it out and spread the word…. And Remember “YOU MATTER”
