Laszlo Jones looks for light at the end of the tunnel on his latest single Kill Myself — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Featured on his recent EP Beyond The Door, the hard-hitting song features special guest guitarist Alex Skolnick of Testament, as well as production by Michael Buyens (Life of Agony, The Gathering) and mixing by Kane Churko (5 Finger Death Punch, Ozzy Osbourne).
“It’s a song about the general lack of well-being and depression endured by many people that can lead to self-hate and self-destruction — which can sometimes lead to dangerous games with death,” Jones explains, adding young people are at particular risk. “They haven’t been able to have normal social contacts for two years now. It’s been hard for them to maintain what’s essential for adolescents.”
Kill Myself is the latest track from Jones’ 2021 release Beyond The Door — a five-song EP that delves deep into his creativity and versatility as a songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist. Despite the intensity of its message, Kill Myself shows Jones’ most vulnerable side. Through a dark and desperate trash-metal anthem comes a plea for understanding.
“Above all, it’s important that people in suicidal crisis, and their relatives, are able to reach a nationwide emergency number at any time,” Jones insists. “Be attentive. Being there for each other and offering help is just as important for helping to stall a potential death.”
