DARKENSIDE Shine Light On Suicide Awareness With “WHEN I CAVE IN”

Emotionally charged and personal, DARKENSIDE’s new music video “WHEN I CAVE IN” puts the spotlight on suicide awareness from the perspective of those whose own demons consume them. The track is off of the band’s hard-hitting new album ‘DESCENT’, which was released on June 11th, the same day as the video.



"Growing up, my family didn’t have much, and many of my friends were in the same situation. We learned to lean on each other. Travis Marymee was one of these friends. He was funny, charismatic, intelligent, athletic, tough as nails, and everyone loved him. He was, in a lot of ways, my biggest inspiration. Years went by, and we’d keep in touch. Eventually it was less frequent. But one day it all came crashing down. I woke to a phone call telling me my friend of nearly my whole life had taken his own. When working on the new album ‘Descent’, we decided to honor him and bring light to the fact that this could happen to anyone. “When I Cave In” is a song inspired by Travis, but it’s also a cautionary tale that suicide is not the answer to suffering." - Ron Jones, vocalist
