Please read a message below from Tom Collier, Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens, and the members of Held Hostage, before you dig into their latest single, “Rise.”
“Held Hostage with their good friend Tim Ripper Owens (K.K.’s Priest, formerly Judas Priest) takes on the subject of suicide of all ages. Suicide has become an epidemic of huge proportions, not just for adults and Veterans but for people of all ages, races, and walks of life.
It affects so many. Most everyone has been impacted either directly or indirectly by suicide, including Held Hostage, which lost a few former members. If you are feeling bad or like you are going to hurt yourself, please call the suicide hotline dial 988. This song is for healing, and if it helps one person, it will be the biggest success of our career in our eyes. Thank you, and always remember, CHOOSE TO LIVE!!!”
