The track, which was first teased during Gareth Emery's set at last year's EDC Las Vegas, has been highly anticipated in the trance community and was finally released via the independent record label, Monstercat.
The video follows the story of a school-aged girl being taunted, bullied and harassed to the brink of suicide. The dramatic video comes to a climactic conclusion when a school teacher finally stands up to the bullies and stops the girl from jumping off the edge of a sea cliff.
“I will warn you, it is a tough video to watch…but I am so proud of it.”
In a post on his social media accounts, Gareth Emery stated that the first month of proceeds will be donated to the anti-bullying charity, Ditch The Label.
From now until March 1st, 100% of all profits made by Gareth, Standerwick and Monstercat will be used to fund the campaign. Proceeds will also include video streaming, which means by simply watching the full video on YouTube, money will be automatically donated to the cause.
Standerwick also addressed the importance of the video, calling it an issue that surrounds many people all over the world.
