Laszlo Jones and Special Guest Alex Skolnick of Testament Bring Suicide Awareness to Gen-Z

Rock sensation Laszlo Jones is bringing awareness to the masses with his hard-hitting latest
single with Special Guest guitarist Alex Skolnick (Testament), on “Kill Myself” off his Beyond
The Door EP Produced by Michael Buyens (Life of Agony, The Gathering) and Mixed by Kane
Churko (5 Finger Death Punch, Ozzy Osbourne).

In true Jones fashion, the song packs a variable punch – taking no prisoners in the process.
Skolnick’s thunderous industrious metal axemanship shines throughout the track, as they
deliver on their mission to tackle one of society’s most problematic issues – suicide. “It’s a song
about the general lack of well being, depression endured by many people, leading to self hate
and self destruction, leading to a dangerous games with death,” Jones explains.

Globally suicide rates are at unimaginable all time high and a subject that has been swept under
the rug by media worldwide as to the psychological impact of how this pandemic has affected
our society and the collateral damage that keeps ravaging humankind young and old.
During the recording process, Jones and Skolnick discussed the issue and it was clear they
needed to communicate to fans through the music to draw attention to the facts. The pulsating
“Kill Myself” offering isn’t afraid to be daring, loud, and bold. It stares at the problem, and
smacks it across the face. The track takes a spectacular interest in telling the story like it is –
with heart-racing guitar licks, electrified scream-o, heavy percussion all mingled with smart lyrics
and fire-catching melodies.

According to Jones, the lyric reflects that young people in particular are currently at risk. “They
haven’t been able to have normal social contacts for 2 years now,” he says, adding that it’s
been hard for them to maintain what’s essential for adolescents. “Above all, it’s important that
people in suicidal crisis, and their relatives, are available to reach a nationwide emergency
number at any time,” Jones insists, reminding that professional and psychological support is
provided. “Be attentive,” Jones says, “being there for each other and offering help is just as
important in stalling a potential suicide.”
