Suicide Silence, Winds Of Plague, As Blood Runs Black, Suffokate and Antagonist have all been announced to play a show at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA on December 4 as a benefit for MHA, or the Mental Health America of Los Angeles. According to the service's website, MHA is "dedicated to promoting mental health recovery and wellness. Our purpose is to help everyone reach healthy lives – whether the need is recovery from mental illness or is occasional and caused by everyday life. Our message is simple – good mental health is fundamental to the health and well-being of everyone in Los Angeles County."
Right on! It's always nice to see bands getting out there to do good for the community. Here's what Suicide Silence had to say about the show!
“We’re proud to announce Mental Health America of Los Angeles as the benefactor of our donations this Christmas. Suicide Silence has always had a deep connection with our fans and over time we’ve come to notice that so many of our younger fans feel lost or left behind in such ways that their mental health takes a turn for the worse.
More often than not, their conditions go undiagnosed or untreated and they’re left with the the tortures of “dealing” on their own. MHALA is an organization that shares our passion for early action in these matters & seeks real solutions to the societal issues that propel mental illness. We applaud them, we support them, and we will fight to make this world a less frightful place for those in need.”
Get your tickets here! Oh, and let's address the fact that Winds of Plague is a band again. The group has stated on its Facebook "With this announcement, we’d like to let our fans know we have a lot of great things in the works and can’t wait to share some exciting news." Which is also awesome!
