Nothing More Tackle Mental Health & Mass Shootings In “Let ‘Em Burn” Video


0

Nothing More have released a new Ben Roberds directed music video for their track “Let ‘Em Burn” off of their latest release, “The Stories We Tell Ourselves“. The video takes on the divisiveness that permeates the U.S. right now as well as the disturbing trend of mass shootings in the country. The band themselves commented:

“Hundreds of people have been killed in mass shootings over the past several years. Almost everyone has chosen the red team or the blue team and we’re stuck in this mode where we fight over political problems instead of human solutions.

More guns or less guns isn’t the question. The real question is, why are we killing each other?”

Meanwhile, the group’s frontman Johnny Hawkins also weighed in:

“The ‘villain and victim’ narrative in media is so seared into our brains that we can’t see straight. The media has become our God and we have become its bitch.

We are blind to human solutions because our emotions have been glued to political problems, and it has paralyzed our progress.

Most of us know that mental health is the cause of mass shootings, yet we are obsessed with talking about the symptoms and gridlocking ourselves in political battles without proper action.

It’s time to find solutions… it’s time to focus on mental health.”

To that end, Nothing More have partnered with mental health charity To Write Love On Her Arms with a dollar from each ticket purchased for the band’s upcoming headlining run with Of Mice & Men, Badflower and Palisades to be donated to the charity. Furthermore they have also invited with non-partisan voter registration organization Headcount to setup pop-up booths during the trek.
