Dedicated in honor of addicts, cutters, the suicidal and mentally abandoned, The Death in Me has announced a partnership with HM and Worth the band’s January Every Life is Worth Saving Tour. Worth is a nonprofit founded last year dedicated to the same cause, with the goal of removing the stigma and public sting of these issues. “We want to be intentional,” Worth founder Zachary Bartik said. “I have personally been through these struggles myself and know the toll they can take on a person.”

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings.
