Indie-punks THE DEADNOTES, who hails from Freiburg Germany is pleased to share their latest single, Never Perfect, from their forthcoming album ‘Courage’ which is out 14th February 2020 through their own newly-established label 22Lives Records.
Never Perfect is a candid and revealing song in which mental health plays a key theme, and marks the beginning of a charitable partnership with two organizations offering help to people affected by mental health issues, especially those in the music and arts industries Help Musicians / Music Minds Matter and Ni9ht-
H3lps-Mental Health Support from Germany. The band will be donating 1€ of every tour ticket and 3€ for every turquoise vinyl sold via their band shop, as well as collecting donations at live shows and with more contributions planned for the near future. Darius Lohmuller, singer and guitarist explains:
“Mental health has always been an important topic for us personally and as a band in the last few years. With “Never Perfect” we decided to explicitly talk about the numerous situations we have come across, where either we ourselves, befriended bands or people we are in contact with working in the music industry have struggled with mental health. We sadly have to admit, that we find more and more people not being able to cope with these situations. I believe it‘s still something that‘s not talked about enough yet. It‘s very important to listen to each other, take care of each other, be attentive and also consider getting help from professionals if you‘re affected”
The accompanying music video for ‘Never Perfect’ was shot in Dublin by Paul Ambusch accompanied by Darius Lohmüller and portraits a person escaping the city to find comfort in the rural and natural landscapes surrounding Dublin in order to cope with struggling in everyday life.
