Detroit Rock veterans Kaleido have released a new single and video "Pretending",
an emotional and empowering song about mental health issues. The song was co-produced with Michael Martenson & Jake Cemer (Boys of Fall). The band has more touring on tap, with an upcoming featured appearance at the Van's Warped Tour 25thanniversary show in Atlantic City, New Jersey on June 29th. The band will be releasing a new EP "NO RLY...IM FINE" on July 19th.
Singer Christina Chriss says of "Pretending": “The only thing harder than the actual internal battle with anxiety, depression or addiction is faking a smile and pretending you’re fine on the outside. Especially after you’ve gathered the courage to speak up and someone tells you to “get over it”. I want you to know, it’s okay to not be okay; It’s okay to talk about it and it’s okay to reach out for help. Through my own struggles I wrote this song and I hope that it reaches everyone who has ever felt this way and needs to hear it: “ITS OKAY TO NOT BE OKAY SOMETIMES.”
