With today being Valentine’s Day I figured I’d post a brief message to remind us to say and show love to one special person this V-Day – and that is ourselves.

It’s often a blessing to have partner to share this day with, and if you’re in a healthy relationship with your partner I suggest you tell them how much you appreciate them! Rather you’re in a relationship on this Commerce Holiday (jk) or not, don’t forget to checkin with yourself often. If you find yourself dipping too low reach out for help! I will continue to share information about where to find help when you’re feeling low or even suicidal.


Here are a few:

Dark thoughts can creep up on us anytime. You are not alone with this. Since the death of Avicii, there has been of a wave of people gaining the courage to speak up and seek help for their mental health. Mental illness is becoming more and more public every day, especially in our music world. Some of our favorite artists like Demi LovatoIlleniumEkaliElohimAutografand Two Feet have revealed through social media they have dealt with depression, anxiety, or suicide in their lives. 

Aside from using social media as an outlet for help, there are numerous other resources you can utilize if you are feeling suicidal or any other harmful mental state.

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline – Suicide prevention telephone hotline funded by the U.S. government and provides free, 24-hour assistance. Dial 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

Hey everyone ❤️ We haven’t publicly said anything until now- but I was off tour for 5 months. At the end of 2017, after 3 incredible years of practically non-stop touring, I had a severe mental breakdown which forced me to miss our big headline tour. I didn't think I would tour again- I felt a shadow of my former self. But being home and surrounded by my friends and family for 5 months, and taking care of myself and seeking out help has done me a world of good. I feel so incredibly blessed to have Mikul and Louis as bandmates and have so many talented people working on our team. Everyone has been very understanding of my need to take a step back from it all for a minute and I couldn't be more grateful. Taking the time to go back to my roots making art and sculpture again has been very therapeutic. I feel balanced, stable, and healthy- and in the process got to spend lots of time in the studio writing music, sculpting, drawing, and creating. I can't wait to share all the new projects we've been working on and I'm so excited to come back on tour and get involved with all of you guys again! Love, Jake 📸 @willselviz
