In reaction to Mental Health Day on October 10th, British band CITY OF ASHES created a short film to go alongside their single Sometimes, off their latest album Rise.
Watch the Sometimes short film here:
But that isn’t all, they have also set up The Sometimes Project which aims to raise awareness of mental illnesses and help their fans who face depression and anxiety. So far it has been hugely successful, to the point that their short film was partially funded by The National Lottery, and gained sponsorship from Barclays, The London Eye, and The Samaritans.
Next month CITY OF ASHES have put together Stand As One, a simultaneous gig that will occur on November 19th at venues all around the UK with artists discussing their own experiences of mental illness.
CITY OF ASHES upcoming tour dates:
15th – The Rigger, Stoke
16th – Bantam, Northampton
19th – Magnet, Liverpool
20th – Grand Central, Manchester
21st – Blueberry Hill, Leeds
