UK-based Christian rock band Amongst Wolves will release their new single "Voices" January 15. The band has been writing songs of hope and faith for over 3 years now, and their newest song focuses primarily on suicide awareness.
The band shares:
After talking to a young person who we know who felt suicidal, we felt that this is too much of an important topic not to address right now in light of all that's going on in the world. We wanted to share about hope and talk about making the choice to live because of the life that Jesus offers."
Alongside the single release, Amongst Wolves are asking for listeners to join in their social media movement called #ChooseToLive on January 14. They are releasing a video on their YouTube channel at 4:30 GMT to launch the campaign. Here is their plan for the movement:
Step 1 - think - if you could say one sentence to someone who's thinking of taking their own life, what would it be? Write a note, post it on instagram, with the hashtag #choosetolive.
Step 2 - Message 3 friends to check in and see how they're doing. Tell them you're there for them if they ever want to talk.
Step 3 - If you're having suicidal thoughts, or if you're struggling with your mental health, please reach out to someone.
Step 4 - Share this image with your friends.
