Today is World Suicide Prevention Day and Throw The Goat is releasing a new music video for the song “Deaths Of Despair” from their upcoming album Capitol Hell (Combat Records). The band encourages people to search out any of the multiple organizations dedicated to suicide prevention on their website and to donate whatever personal circumstances permit.
Nearly 800,000 people die by suicide in the world each year, which is roughly one death every 40 seconds. Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in the world for those aged 15-24 years. Depression is the leading cause worldwide.
The band laments, “Virtually all of us have lost friends and family to suicide. Some of us have survived attempts. It’s worth it to keep living. There are people who care.”
