“X” Marks The Spot: Everyone Dies In Utah premieres powerful new track
Struggling with maintaining positive mental health is something that can affect anyone and bringing awareness is crucial as it makes people know they’re not alone in their dark times. It’s that feeling of being there for someone is what inspired the new track that sheds light on the often not discussed topic of depression and suicide. As May is Mental Health Awareness month, Everyone Dies in Utah is proud to premiere their powerful new single, “X,” that shows listeners that others are experiencing similar struggles and that it’s okay to not be okay; things will get better and there are people in this world that do care.
Taking inspiration from his own life, vocalist Danny Martinez was candid about how depression has touched his loved ones. Martinez shared, “I wrote “X” for my fiance who struggles with depression. I do everything in my power to make her happy but sometimes her mind just takes her to a dark place and all I can really do it just be there for her. That’s what this song is all about, having someone in your life that is struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts and doing all you can for them; even when you really don’t know what there is you can do.”
Sometimes it’s that feeling of knowing you’re not alone is the one comfort that can help those who are battling their own demons. For many people, music is an outlet they can turn to when life has it’s dark moments. Knowing that a song can help get you through a difficult time is quite incredible and EDIU wants fans to know that no matter what, they’ll always be there through the good and the bad.
Being a veteran band of ten years now, EDIU has been through a lot over the course of their career. This track is special to the band not only for it’s story but the name itself is symbolism for the ten year anniversary of the band’s first ever live performance that happened on May 31, 2008. Experiencing the ups and downs of the industry, EDIU proves that they are still going strong and will continue to make meaningful songs that their fans can relate to.
In addition to the new single, the band looks forward to hitting the Warped Tour stage this summer on the festivals final run. Fans can catch the band on the Full Sail University Stage 7/6-7/8.
