On the brink of the release of their album When the End Began, Silent Planet has released the final music video in the powerful series leading up to their third studio album. “Visible Unseen” debuted via Billboard.com with a powerful focus on an often ignored suffering demographic: homeless LGBT youth.
The video continues Silent Planet’s trend of addressing psychological and social issues with their music– a habit that comes naturally to frontman Garrett Russell, who holds a Masters degree in clinical psychology. “I call these youths the ‘Visible Unseen’ because this is a phenomenon that is happening around us, but often goes overlooked,” Russell told Billboard.
Beyond just telling the stories of these abandoned youths in the video, “Visible Unseen” also referenced organizations such as The Trevor Project and RAINN, who provide resources for some of the LGBT youth populations greatest needs: physical shelters, but also mental health and suicide prevention resources.
