THE MOTH & THE FLAME
With the release of “The New Great Depression” The Moth & The Flame are making a call for people to open up to friends and loved ones about their own battles with depression. In a letter to fans today posted on Facebook, Robbins relates his own experience of sharing his struggle with his parents for the first time.
“Opening up about it changed my life. It changed my perspective. It led me to find more help. It brought me to a healthier and happier place.
I share this because 1 in 5 people will suffer from depression in their lifetime. Too many struggle alone and in silence. Talking to someone immediately improves your chances of getting better.
I challenge anyone who is struggling with depression to tell someone, anyone. And then I challenge you to share that experience, whether past or present, and hashtag it, so others will be inspired to do the same.
Since the release of their eponymous debut album, The Moth & The Flame have found themselves on the road with the likes of Wolf Alice, Neon Trees, and Big Data. They’ve been invited to perform at festivals including Riot Fest, Bumbershoot, Firefly, and Bottlerock among others, and their songs have been featured on 13 Reasons Why, Real World, NBA 2K17 and American Idol, while racking up over 22 million streams on Spotify so far.
