Struggling with maintaining positive mental health is something that can affect anyone and bringing awareness is crucial as it makes people know they’re not alone in their dark times. It’s that feeling of being there for someone is what inspired the new track that sheds light on the often not discussed topic of depression and suicide. As May is Mental Health Awareness month, Everyone Dies in Utah is proud to premiere their powerful new single, “X,” that shows listeners that others are experiencing similar struggles and that it’s okay to not be okay; things will get better and there are people in this world that do care.
Taking inspiration from his own life, vocalist Danny Martinez was candid about how depression has touched his loved ones. Martinez shared, “I wrote “X” for my fiance who struggles with depression. I do everything in my power to make her happy but sometimes her mind just takes her to a dark place and all I can really do it just be there for her. That’s what this song is all about, having someone in your life that is struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts and doing all you can for them; even when you really don’t know what there is you can do.”
