“The moment I heard the music for ’As Bright As The Darkness,’ I knew what I was going to write,” says Devil You Know vocalist & lyricist Howard Jones. “This song is about the times I felt at my lowest. I’ve been fighting depression for years and I wish I had not waited so long to get help. Those who know depression, you are not alone. Just reach out.”
The You Rock Foundation aims to serve as a safe haven for those who have suffered from or are currently suffering from depression – the largest perpetrator of suicide, which is the third leading cause of death among young adults aged fifteen to twenty-four. Using music as a backdrop to spread awareness, educate, and empower, the foundation seeks to pull those suffering out of the dark and show them the possibilities of moving forward with a life that thrives.
