Metal can be used for the greater good and many bands have dedicated their time and effort towards a good cause, either by releasing limited-edition merch, advocating a benefit organization of their liking or simply playing a benefit concert. Suicide Silence joins the ranks of the latter as they just announced a headliner show in Santa Ana, CA in benefit of the Mental Health America of Los Angeles on December 4th.
The show will have the support of other great bands including Winds of Plague as well as As Blood Runs Black, Suffokate and Antagonist. Suicide Silence’s frontman Eddie Hermida comments about the show:
We’re proud to announce Mental Health America of Los Angeles as the benefactor of our donations this Christmas. SUICIDE SILENCE has always had a deep connection with our fans and over time we’ve come to notice that so many of our younger fans feel lost or left behind in such ways that their mental health takes a turn for the worse.
More often than not, their conditions go undiagnosed or untreated and they’re left with the the tortures of “dealing” on their own. MHALA is an organization that shares our passion for early action in these matters & seeks real solutions to the societal issues that propel mental illness. We applaud them, we support them, and we will fight to make this world a less frightful place for those in need.
The show will take place at the Observatory and tickets can be purchased here.
