Freiburg, Germany-based indie-punks THE DEADNOTES are pleased to share a latest single from their forthcoming album 'Courage' which is out 14th February 2020 through their own newly-established label 22Lives Records.
The latest single 'Never Perfect', released today, is a candid and revealing song in which mental health plays a key theme. The single marks the beginning of a charitable partnership with two organisations offering help to people affected by mental health issues, especially those in the music and arts industries through Help Musicians / Music Minds Matter and Ni9ht-H3lps-Mental Health Support from Germany.
The band will begin their efforts by donating 1€ of every tour ticket and 3€ for every turquoise vinyl sold via their band shop, as well as collecting donations at live shows and with more contributions planned for the near future.
“Mental health has always been an important topic for us personally and as a band in the last few years. With “Never Perfect” we decided to explicitly talk about the numerous situations we have come across, where either we ourselves, befriended bands or people we are in contact with working in the music industry have struggled with mental health. We sadly have to admit, that we find more and more people not being able to cope with these situations”, singer and guitarist Darius Lohmüller of the band says.
“I believe it‘s still something that‘s not talked about enough yet. It‘s very important to listen to each other, take care of each other, be attentive and also consider getting help from professionals if you‘re affected”, Darius adds.
The music video for 'Never Perfect' was shot in Dublin by Paul Ambusch accompanied by Darius Lohmüller and portraits a person escaping the city to find comfort in the rural and natural landscapes surrounding Dublin in order to cope with struggling in every day life.
