Started by August Burns Red vocalist Jake Luhrs, HeartSupport is a community that helps those struggling with deep-rooted issues in the heavy music scene. One of the major components of recovery from any number of struggles is knowing you’re not alone and with their new Restore Program, they leverage that belief, pairing six different video modules (Wound, Cope, Habit, Discover, Heal, Live) with “nine different interviews with exclusive, never-before-heard struggles and stories from the personal lives” of Andy Biersack (Black Veil Brides), Levi Benton (Miss May I), Matty Mullins (Memphis May Fire) and more.

“Restore is that bridge from hoping-for-better to actually taking the steps to get there. It’s a recovery program custom-built by bands in the music scene for their fans to heal from past wounds and overcome present habits. It’s a movement in our scene from hope to healing, from singing to living, from being stuck to being free.”

Some great rewards are left for those who sponsor the completion of this fundraiser, including Golden Ticket passes (paid-for pre-show dinners and exclusive access to the show) with The Word Alive, ABR and The Color Morale, tons of merch, handwritten and signed lyric sheets and a bunch more. There’s definitely an option for any kind of reward you’re looking for.

As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.
