To Kill A King to headline Music Support fundraiser

To Kill A King will headline a fundraising gig for music mental health and addictions charity Music Support later this month.

The event, which will take place at Omeara in London Bridge on Monday, May 28, will also feature support sets from Charlie Barnes and Monty Taft.

The charity offers a 24/7 helpline, festival safe tents, crisis support and workshop training for both musicians and those on the business side

“This is our first ever fundraising show and we are incredibly proud and excited that a band with the caliber of To Kill A King are joining us," said Music Support founding trustee Matt Thomas. "It goes to show that we are really receiving support from all areas of the industry across the board, and events like this enable us to continue providing the crucial services to the industry that we saw such a need for." 

Robbie Williams became Music Support's first ever patron last year. The charity was founded in April 2016 by Thomas, Williams' former tour manager Andy Franks, musician Mark Richardson, Samantha Parker and addiction treatment expert Johan Sorensen, with each having their own personal experiences of recovery and addiction. 

“Music Support do incredibly important work in an industry that can be exploitative of its artists and when we were asked to get involved, we jumped at the chance," said To Kill A King guitarist Grant McNeill. "Omeara is one of our favourite small venues and we’re planning on making it a really special night."
