LUCA BRASI Get Serious About Mental Health With New Lyric Video + Collaboration With SPEAK UP! STAY CHATTY!

Tassie legends (and Good Call Live faves) Luca Brasi shine the spotlight on mental health in a stark new lyric video for The Truth, and collaboration with mental health and suicide prevention charity SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY!.

Luca Brasi frontman Tyler Richardson has bravely stepped up to talk about his personal experiences with mental ill health and the ways in which he is able to move through it in a new video for Stay ChatTY’s ‘Stories Worth Sharing‘ series.

I’ve spent a lot of my adult years in and out of cycles of loss and of grief.” explains Richardson “I’m even writing these words on the anniversary of a dear friend’s loss; unfortunately I often feel numb on days like these—I’ve had a lot of them. What I don’t want is any more of them, any more days where I have to go and face the family and friends of another lost friend. Any more days of families losing loved ones, of partners losing partners, of parents losing children. We’ve been lucky enough to make connections through this band that I could never have foreseen, this is what I’ll take away from Luca Brasi overall; that I got to somehow touch the lives of others through music in a positive way.

Richardson‘s ‘Stories Worth Sharing’ video coincides with the release of a new lyric video for The Truth. Lifted from Luca Brasi‘s new album ‘Everything Is Tenuous’, The Truth sees frontman Tyler Richardson deliver his most emotive and soul bearing lyrics to-date. The song is an emotionally raw and stirring ode to the themes of mental health, suicide prevention, grief and loss.

The Truth is about how hopeless I feel during all this loss.” says Richardson. “It’s a hope that this song helps those listening feel less like an island, and that others feel what you have felt/are feeling. You are not alone, I can promise you that.”

To further celebrate the important work that SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY does, the band have also launched of an exclusive new Luca Brasi t-shirt design, with 100% of profits from all sales donated directly to the charity.

“Organisations like SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY are so important in the space of mental health awareness. We are incredibly lucky to have these people creating awareness about the importance of speaking up and seeking support.

A limited run of this special design is available now via the band’s merch store –

ABOUT LUCA BRASI
Luca Brasi soared to new heights with their fifth album, ‘Everything Is Tenuous’. Propelled by the inactivity of COVID lockdown and encouraged by friends, the four-piece took their first foray into self-recording. After buying a bunch of gear and teaching themselves how to use it, Luca Brasi also self-produced the album with a little help from Darren Cordeux (Kisschasy) before shipping it off to the mainland to be mixed by Grammy-nominated engineer Andrei Eremin (Tash Sultana/Chet Faker). Upon its release, ‘Everything Is Tenuous’ landed at #7 on the ARIA Album Chart, scoring the band their highest chart debut yet.

Empowered by their time at the helm, Luca Brasi have written their most potent songs to date. Already spawning three other beautiful singles in Tangled; Content, This Selfish Love and Dying To Feel Alive, ‘Everything Is Tenuous’ is trademark Luca Brasi – sweetly melodic with a lyrical undertone of melancholia as the band wrestles with losing mates, regret and burnout while also serving a reminder that life is fragile and fleeting, so take a moment to appreciate what matters.
