Carnage has announced he’s taking a break from the music industry in an Instagram post, citing his mental and physical health as reasons for the respite. He was set to embark on the 12-day Unusual Suspects Tour as a supporting act alongside Smokepurpp, with Gucci Mane headlining the endeavor.

After releasing his second studio album Battered Bruised & Bloody, featuring big names such as the late Mac Miller, as well as Lil Pump, Lil B, Steve Aoki, Migos and more, Carnage’s 2018 has also been filled with a jam-packed tour schedule of performances filled with high-intensity party surroundings.

In the post, “Thirty Rack” mentioned, “having close friends pass due to this stuff really scares the fuck out of me,” likely alluding to Avicii and the more recently deceased Miller: both fellow collaborators of his. Carnage disclosed that his therapist and doctor recommended he take time off, and the break is simply a warranted recharge.

An increasing number of artists within the music industry are addressing the topic of mental health with transparency. Kygo partnered with To Write Love On Her Arms’ Tomorrow Needs You campaign in September in an effort to augment mental health awareness and raise funds for treatment and recovery for those who struggle with thoughts of suicide. Kygo’s alliance with Tomorrow Needs You coincided with National Suicide Prevention Week, which spanned September 9-15 this year. Illenium is the latest artist to join the initiative to promote suicide awareness, in his newly formed union with NV Concepts.

Together, Illenium and NV Concepts seek to simultaneously combat suicide and collect money for the Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Illenium took to Facebook to inform fans of his involvement with NV Concepts, and to ask fans to film and share 15-second videos detailing their experiences with depression. “It’s important to come together and know that you are not alone no matter how hard life can get,” Illenium said of the goal behind his campaign with NV Concepts, and the fan videos. In a play off of the word of his sophomore studio album, Awake, Illenium prompts fans to “explain what [their] reason for being awake is,” or in other words, “what keeps [fans] going in life, [and] why [they] stay positive.”

NV Concepts has agreed donate one-dollar to the Suicide Prevention Lifeline for each video uploaded to Instagram. Illenium encourages those who would like to participate to hashtag their videos #Awake, and to also tag both @Illeniummusic and @NVConcepts.

Selena Gomez seeks mental health treatment after ’emotional breakdown’

Selena Gomez seeks mental health treatment after ’emotional breakdown’Selena Gomez Emotional Breakdown Hospitalized

Selena Gomez is undergoing mental health treatment after suffering what’s being described as an “emotional breakdown.” The singer has been hospitalized multiple times over in recent with complications stemming from her 2015 lupus diagnosis, and was admitted previously this September for dangerously low white blood cell counts. Gomez is now believed to be undergoing mental health care in an east coast facility.

Gomez had been largely silent after announcing on Instagram that she would be taking a break from social media. The pop star’s mental and physical health battles have been well documented, including a 2014 rehab stint for addiction and multiple breaks from the public eye to deal with her physical and mental health. The singer is the latest in an ever-increasing string of stars seeking treatment, as mental health issues like anxiety and depression continue to rise to the forefront in the music world.

deadmau5 to take indefinite hiatus

deadmau5 to take indefinite hiatusScreen Shot 2017 12 08 At 12.32.49 PM

deadmau5 is going offline indefinitely, per a statement posted to Twitter.

He acknowledged his longtime struggle with mental health had taken a toll on him to fans, indicating issues had magnified over “the past several years” and a guilty feeling over not realizing his label’s vision. At the beginning and end of his note, deadmau5 offered an apology to those he’d offended in the past with unfiltered comments that he admitted were offensive. These two items are what ultimately led to his decision to “go off the radar and taking time necessary to work on myself.”

It’s unclear if by “going off the radar,” deadmau5 meant be taking a break from social media only, or his career/pursuits in general. He simply advised he’d be seeking professional help to aid him in his mission to become a better person. This departure follows up one where similar issues were cited in 2015.

Study says music industry workers are subject to inordinately high levels of stress

Study says music industry workers are subject to inordinately high levels of stressScreen Shot 2017 10 19 At 11.21.18 AM

A new study conducted by Skiddle concluded that much like musicians active in the music industry, industry workers are also susceptible to unusually elevated levels of stress. Eighty-two percent of those surveyed who hold jobs in the music industry reported “continuous levels of stress.” Skiddle’s study surveyed more than 500 industry staff members who hold a number of different positions, ranging from venue operators and event organizers to promoters. Forty-seven percent stated that their work in the music industry prompted “constant” feelings of anxiety and sadness.

Anxiety and depression were prevalent among study participants: 67 percent of respondents attested to feeling anxious, while 40percent said that they had experienced depression. Another 10 percent of employees indicated that they had begun to present symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder as a direct result of their job. At 65 percent, more than half of promoters cited an “intense and unmanageable level of pressure,” due in part to concerns regarding an unstable and unpredictable regular income, and a general “lack of support.”

Skiddle’s findings echo those of Help Musicians UK’s 2017 study, in which the independent charity for musicians in the UK determined that artists may be up to three times more likely to suffer from depression as compared to the general public. The first phase of the study sought to survey musicians, focusing on their working conditions in relation to their overall mental well-being via an industry-wide survey that recorded responses from a total of 2,211 artists. As Skiddle and Help Musicians UK’s research collectively illustrates, careers within the music industry, whether as a musician or otherwise, can subject working individuals to accentuated stress levels that differ in intensity from those induced by positions in other industries or fields. The respective reports collaboratively underscore an ensuing need for mental health awareness, given the pressures of the music industry’s characteristically fast pace.
