Remember last year, Hopeless Records launched Songs That Saved My Life? It was launched with a compilation of covers featuring the likes of Neck Deep, The Maine, As It Is and more.
But if you thought that was the end of the Songs That Saved My Life content, you'd be wrong.
Trash Boat have dropped a cover of Linkin Park's 'Given Up' as part of the Songs That Saved My Life concept. This particular cover has been released for Mental Health Awareness Month.
Speaking about his connection with the song, Trash Boat frontman Tobi Duncan has shared “I remember watching a radio interview Chester Bennington did in February 2017, just 5 months before his death. He spoke so plainly and openly about his suffering to the extent that, with the benefit of hindsight, it was obviously a desperate cry for help.” He continued, “May is mental health awareness month, and with this cover comes a reminder to be the voice that counterbalances the army of negativity in someone’s head. Make the first move, ask the difficult questions and keep the conversation going, even if it seems helpless. You CAN make a difference.”
