The boys were invited to share in a celebration of the life of Scott Hutchison and to raise awareness for mental health and suicide prevention (donations went to The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention) at Fran’s “Shouts Against the Darkness” event in Philly this past Saturday 9/22/18. They discuss Fran’s book “Please Plant This Book” which features his poetry and illustrations from the late Frightened Rabbit singer Scott Hutchison. Scott passed away May 10th 2018 after a lifelong battle with mental illness. “Shouts Against the Darkness” is a poetic tribute to Scott, an artist who’s work we hope you’ll support or check out if you haven’t already. We also hope you’ll give his work with Fran a look as well.” Listen to the whole conversation here.
