Five Finger Death Punch Debut ‘Coming Down’ Video Promoting Suicide Prevention
Five Finger Death Punch recently announced their plans to release a new video that would aid in suicide prevention. That video, for their song ‘Coming Down,’ premiered today (June 12) and can be seen below.
The eye-opening video starts with a shocking montage of troubled teens on the edge of suicide. It chronicles their stories throughout the video from bullying to self-image issues to the damage it causes from drug abuse, cutting, and in the most extreme cases – suicide.
Five Finger Death Punch, no stranger to a good cause, aim to promote the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline through their new video. “Five Finger Death Punch is promoting the to build awareness that there is support out there for those in need through the Lifeline’s service, and others,” explains guitarist Zoltan Bathory. “This is an important initiative we have taken on to place it on the consciousness of the public that you are not alone when in need.”
The video is admittedly hard to watch at times, but that’s by design. It serves as an important reminder that suicide impacts everyone and shows how each one of us can help save a life by just a little awareness. The video ends with a PSA saying “Don’t ignore the chance to get help for you or someone you know who might be in crisis. Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline now at 1-800-273-TALK (8255)”
Five Finger Death Punch are helping in other ways as well. They will donate $1.00 for every ticket sold on their upcoming Trespass America Festival. FFDP will be headling the tour and joined by Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Pop Evil and more.
