Fit For A King’s Ryan Kirby took on Silent Planet‘s “Trilogy,“ while Silent Planet’s Garrett Russell took on Fit For A King‘s “Stockholm.“ The two groups have also released some collaborative merch with proceeds set to go towards Ryan’s wife Crystal Kirby. The following was said about that:

“…Crystal Kirby (Ryan‘s wife) has been in and out of the hospital over the last few months being treated for bloodclots in her brain. So our bands decided that the money from this sale, up to $5000, will go directly to the Kirby family to help covered what is not being covered by her insurance. We are a family. We are One. Love you all!”

Silent Planet’s Garrett Russell: “I’m Not Allowing Anxiety To Take Over”

As previously reported, Silent Planet’s Garrett Russell recently entered a psychological rehabilitation clinic to get help for mental health issues. Now, the vocalist has offered an update on his condition, saying that he is “not allowing anxiety to take over.”

Russell said the following:

“Merry Christmas from all of us. My bandmates are enjoying the day with family, and I’m so glad that’s the case. They deserve it. We love touring, of course, but it’s caused us to miss so many holidays and ceremonies.

For me this Christmas looks a little different than I could have expected. I suppose no one really plans to spend Christmas in a mental institution. And I’d be lying if I pretended that today hasn’t been difficult so far. After all, being here is the result of the greatest failure of my personal life – one that has shaken me to the core or my being, and put the entire band in a difficult financial position.

But I’m not allowing anxiety to take over. Not anymore. I am praying and fighting. I wish to be resilient – something that many of you have shown me with the stories you’ve shared at shows. Life is a gift and it’s worth fighting for – even if it’s not what you expect. Even if it hurts like hell. So here I am: Thankful to be alive and thankful for the many folks who have encouraged me while I’m in here. Especially my bandmates and our manager Cory – dudes who still haven’t given up on me.

So Merry Christmas. Whether this day finds you mourning, celebrating, or simply dizzy from the eggnog – don’t ever give up. After all, this day is a celebration that marks the beginning of the greatest revolution this earth hasn’t ever seen (in my humble opinion).

Also… Happy Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or
whatever else some of you might call this day!

P.S. We have something very special to show you 30 hours from now. Love you.”

Silent Planet’s Garrett Russell To Seek Treatment For Mental Health Issues

As previously reported, Silent Planet have dropped off their European tour with Northlane, Void Of Vision, and Polaris. Now, vocalist Garrett Russell has addressed the situation further, saying the band left the trek so he can enter a psychological rehabilitation clinic to get help for mental health issues.

Russell said the following:

“I’ve written and re-written this post a dozen times. But either way, the conclusion is the same. So I’ll just tell you what’s going on.

My name is Garrett and I struggle with mental illness. If you’ve followed our band closely, you might already be aware of this. I’ve done my best to be open about my experience, as I tried to set a positive example for others who struggle.

You are not defined by your disorder. You are not your disorder. I believe you are a human, made in the sacred image of God. Whether or not you believe that, I hope you at least realize how mathematically unlikely your existence is in this universe.

However, it’s one thing to talk about mental health… and it’s another thing to take care of it. I have been neglecting my own mental health, and unfortunately, I was given a harsh reminder over this last week.

I had a series of episodes while in Europe, and I became a danger to myself. My bandmates, who love me very much, decided that we should all go home together. The care they’ve shown me has been the clearest depiction of grace I’ve ever seen in my life.

This was not an easy decision because we have never cancelled a show in our 10 years of existence and thousands of shows. We’ve had shows cancelled by weather, police, venues, promoters, etc. But it’s never been us. We don’t take our opportunities for granted – we have been grinding since day 1, and we’ve never been okay with taking the easy way out.

So as you can imagine, this hurts like hell. Every morning I wake up and think of every person I’ve disappointed. So this is why I will be doing everything in my power to never let this happen again. I’m going to try to get healthy. I’m checking myself into a psychological rehabilitation clinic, where I’ll be treated by a team of mental health professionals.

Now, I’m going to level with you. We aren’t trust fund babies, so the financial road ahead looks difficult for us. We’ve been planning some Black Friday/Cyber Monday merch sales for weeks, and we will continue with those to hopefully help us pay off the many bills we now owe. I’ll post these items later, and if you wanna grab one or give one as a Christmas gift, that would be rad.

But most importantly, I want to thank you for reading this. In my current mental state, it’s difficult to see what’s ahead, but someone once said that “faith is being certain of what you do not see” – so I’m trying to have faith.

Love you all. Thank you for reading. Thank you for sticking with us. See you soon.

P.S. Happy Thanksgiving or whatever today means to you. Find something to be thankful for, even if it’s just being alive.”

Silent Planet Drop Off European Tour With Northlane, Void Of Vision, & Polaris

Silent Planet have been forced to drop off their European tour with Northlane, Void Of Vision, and Polaris. The band issued the following statement:

“Due to circumstances that are beyond our control, we will be dropping off the European leg of Northlane’s Alien world tour with Polaris and Void of Vision. This was not a decision that was made easily and we are deeply sorry to anyone who was looking forward to seeing us at one of these shows. Your continued support over the years means the world to us, as does your understanding in this current situation. We will see you soon. Thank you.”
