The new single from Bourbon Therapy is called "Peace That You Deserve", a song describing the struggles of a veteran dealing with PTSD after returning home. All proceeds from the sales of the single on Itunes will be donated to Mission 22, a non-profit combating veteran suicide through services and awareness.
Bourbon Therapy is an indie rock band from Oakland fronted by husband and wife duo Aaron and Rebecca Skiles, and their new song “Peace That You Deserve” is an ode to the veteran struggling with PTSD and adjusting back to the life we all take for granted.
Lots of bands write songs about veterans or the flag, but few choose to donate the entire first month of sales from the song to a veteran supporting charity, which is exactly what Bourbon Therapy is doing. All November sales of the song on Itunes will be donated to Mission22, a charity that works with veterans to combat suicide and raise awareness for the seemingly never-ending string of veterans coming home damaged.
Band leader Aaron Skiles and the actor in the video Jack Kennedy, are both veterans and friends who met at West Point, so this is a cause close to their hearts, one they took great pain to make sure the lyrics and visual details of were as respectful as possible to other veterans.
The video is directed by Cesar Delly who made sure the imagery tells you what you need to know about the character, allowing the end to leave you with a sense of hope; hope that he will find a way to adjust, to find the peace that he deserves.
After listening to their older work, I find “Peace That Your Deserve” to be a bit outside of Bourbon Therapy’s normal sound but it’s a departure that I enjoy and plays well for this song; it showcases the vocals of Rebecca Skiles nicely, and effectively delivers a message well worth hearing.
