Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes use social media to address mental health in their new music video “Anxiety.”
The clip starts with Carter searching for “anxiety” on social media and getting a pop-up message stating “Posts with words or tags like you’re searching for often encourage behavior that can cause harm or even lead to death. If you’re going through something difficult, we’d like to help.” From there the rest of the video shows a scrolling social media feed where different people share their experiences and ways to cope with anxiety. Watch it below.
Carter has been very candid about his experience with anxiety and recently launched #abetterplaceforyouandme, an online initiative in conjunction with UK charity CALM, to provide a safe forum for people to discuss ways of overcoming and living with anxiety.
“Anxiety” appears on Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes’ upcoming album, End of Suffering, out May 3rd. Pre-order a copy here.
