LA via Athens-based punk-infused Barb Wire Dolls hit the Skull Candy stage for Denver Warped Tour. The band is currently promoting their new album Rub My Mind, out tomorrow, which is available for pre-order through Motörhead Music. Their track “If I Fall” focuses on the topics of depression and suicide, which lead singer Isis Queen grappled with as a teenager. In her statement to Alternative Press about the new song, Isis reveals how music helped her overcome her own struggles, saying, “[I]n my time of need I escaped into music, and it kept me alive when I felt that there was no use in living anymore.…[T]here is always hope, and there are many ways to channel that depression and make it positive.”
Vans Warped Tour has partnered with To Write Love on Her Arms, a non-profit focused on helping those struggling to overcome depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. If you or anyone you know is battling depression or thoughts of suicide, please get help. You are not alone.
