Special new film released

Brighton alternative rockers CITY OF ASHES are pleased to reveal their incredible short film for single release ‘Sometimes’ taken from their latest album‘Rise’. The film was released on World Mental Health Day exclusively withLouder Than War.

CITY OF ASHES independently took it upon themselves to set up ‘The Sometimes Project’ to help their fans with their battles with depression and anxiety, as well as raise awareness for mental health. The project has touched hundreds of people, so much so that the band gained funding for the production of their new video with the National Lottery, as well as obtaining sponsorship and support from BarclaysThe London Eye and The Samaritans.

The band have also set up ‘Stand As One’: a simultaneous gig across the country taking place on the 19th November in different cities up and down the UK. Artists at all of these shows will share their own experiences and battles with depression.
