Disturbed premiere “A Reason to Fight” live video, launch resources page for mental health

Posted by on April 18, 2019

Disturbed have shown how much they’ve evolved over the years with their latest effort Evolution, which was released in October 2018 via Reprise Records. “A Reason To Fight,” is one of the most powerful songs taken from the band’s seventh studio record as the meaning behind the track is about suicide, addiction, and significant losses such as Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell. We’ve seen the group’s powerful performance of this tune last month at MSG and now, the band has created a live video for it.

The band issued the following statement:

“We are all in this together. There is always #AReasonToFight! Thanks to our fans who helped us spread this very important message. We are deeply touched by your personal stories, and we hope it encourages others to reach out.

If you or someone you know is battling with addiction, depression, PTSD, and other demons, you are not alone!”

Watch the clip below:

In addition to the video, Disturbed created resources on their website for people all over the globe to get the help they need as they’ve elaborated: everyone has A Reason To Fight.

Their message reads:

“Our world is plagued by an epidemic. By a disease that shows no mercy. The demons known as addiction and depression are very real, and they have claimed far too many of those we love, far sooner than they should have left us. Those still with us, are fighting a battle they wage every day of their lives, Keeping those DEMONS at bay. It’s up to us to show them that they aren’t alone, that they have nothing to be ashamed of, that we understand, and that we will fight with them, and for them. For those you know, who are waging this internal war, the time to be a TRUE friend and advocate, and to INTERVENE, is now. To hesitate, is to lose a chance to save them you may never get again. The list of those who have been taken from us, is full of those who were so loved, so talented, and who are now so very sorely missed. And are not only those who were close to us, but also some of those who were close to you. As we consider each and every one of you, our BROTHER and SISTERS, our BLOOD, to be our family, with pride, to our memorial. Please joins us in a moment of silence, to pay respect to those we have lost.”
