Ferocious Dog - Broken Soldier
On 6 August Ferocious Dog release the moving single 'Broken Solider', the second single from their forthcoming new album The Hope, which will be released on 15 October, on Graphite Records.
With the release of Broken Solider, Ferocious Dog want to raise money and awareness for Combat Stress, the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health. For over a century, Combat Stress have helped former servicemen and women with mental health problems, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression.
Ferocious Dog are asking people to donate where they can to Combat Stress to help veterans. They'll also be donating £5,000 from the Lee Bonsall Memorial Fund to the charity.
Combat Stress' Director of Fundraising, Robert Marsh, said “On behalf of Combat Stress and the veterans that seek our unique and vital help we would like to say thank you to Ken and Karen, their family and friends, the band Ferocious Dog and the Lee Bonsall Memorial Fund. Their incredibly generous support over the last 6 years will have helped many, many veterans struggling with mental health problems. We very much hope that ‘Broken Soldier’ is a huge success and the awareness generated will encourage other veterans to seek help and not suffer in silence and that it’s okay not to be okay.”
The Broken Soldier lyrics were written by Ken’s good friend, Andrew Hawkins, who knew Lee, and Ferocious Dog hope this song and video will help veterans affected by complex mental health conditions, like PTSD, to come forward and get the help they need
