Our friends in Bowling For Soup, especially frontman Jaret Reddick, have been very open about struggles with mental health in recent years. Encouraging everyone to talk about how they’re feeling has been one of Jaret’s central messages, and that message is furthered with their latest release.
Bowling For Soup have released a music video for Hello Anxiety, one of the standout tracks from their much acclaimed album Pop Drunk Snot Bread, released earlier this year. With anxiety a huge topic and issue in society, people are perhaps becoming more comfortable talking about it thanks to people like Jaret speaking out. The video for Hello Anxiety tackles the topic in a lighthearted, fun way while still getting the serious point across – something that Bowling For Soup are often excellent at doing. Check out the video for Hello Anxiety, starring Cyrus Hobbi (who also starred in the band’s I Wanna Be Brad Pitt video earlier in the year) here:
