Wear A Mask

Metallica, Mastodon, Killswitch Engage, Etc. Members Urge You To Wear A Mask


In the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic, blue-collar musicians and those involved in the entertainment industry are among those who have been impacted the hardest. Still, the decision for some to wear a mask to help slow and ultimately prevent the transmission of the Coronavirus remains a contentious topic.

With large-scale live events and gatherings likely to remain off the table the more the virus spreads, Decibel have assembled a gallery of over 140 metal artists who encourage you to wear a mask. The majority of the artists involved also provided commentary on their decision to wear a mask, you can find the gallery at this location. Some excepts include:

Kirk Hammett (Metallica):

“The reason I wear a mask is because I care about the safety and well-being of others. Even people I don’t know and who are total strangers. Don’t be selfish. Fuck politics. This is about life and death. Wear a fucking mask!”

Adam Dutkiewicz (Killswitch Engage)

“If you’re leaving your place, cover your face. It’s the people who aren’t doing so that are keeping us from getting back to live music!”

Brann Dailor (Mastodon):

“I wear a mask because I’m a responsible adult and it’s the least I can do to help stop the spread of this horrific pandemic.”
