In honor of National Anti-Bullying Awareness Month and #MentalHealthAwarenessDay From Ashes To New are partnering with Love Is Louder in an effort to help fans and friends who are affected by bullying and the side effects of that i.e. depression suicide.
Love Is Louder is a foundation started by actress Brittany Snow, with the directive to amplify the message that love and support are louder than any voice that tries to bring us down.’ Striving to create a safe community for people to connect and get support, they provide campus programmes for high school and college students to educate them on how to communicate responsibly with friends that are victims of bullying, suffer from body image issues, depression, suicidal thoughts and more.
The band have used lyrics from their current single ‘Broken’ to create an exclusive shirt that reads ‘I won’t be broken’ and will raise money toward’s Love Is Louder’s.
“As people, our differences make us special, but they can also divide us and create conflict,” explains vocalist, Matt Brandyberry. “We need to think before we talk or act to make sure we aren’t causing other people pain.” Co-vocalist, Danny Case adds “It is important to us to use the platform we have and our connection to all the people we see while on tour around the country to do some good.”
