For Today's new album Fight The Silence intends to do just that. After having been exposed to the realities of human trafficking, frontman Mattie Montgomery made it his mission to raise awareness and help with his band's next creative effort.
In a statement released with the debut of the title track's video, Montgomery explained that he had been shown this video and it sparked such a response ("I was sobbing, snot coming out of my nose, tears coming down my face," Montogmery said) that he changed the direction of what would become Fight The Silence, stating, "I want the world to hear about this thing."
Not only are the band bringing awareness through the content of the album, but they are also donating proceeds from the album and their current tour to the A21 Campaign to stop human trafficking.
