CALM is dedicated to preventing male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. On average 12 men take their own life every day – more than three times the number of women. CALM works to prevent male suicide by providing services for men who are down or in crisis, and by campaigning for culture change so men feel able to seek help.

Age Decay is a blackened, doom flecked, downer rock band from Bristol.
The band started as a solo project and was expanded to a full band to meet the demand for live performances.
The debut EP - Pavor Nocturnus/A World In Two - was performed and recorded solely by Chris Nicholls. 4 tracks from this session were then re-recorded by the full live line-up as "Alternate Deaths"
Their new single - Burning Season - is 7 minutes of grinding riffs, coupled with atmospheric passages.
Age Decay takes influence from everything and everyone, from Chelsea Wolfe to Sumac. From Gorecki to Alice In Chains. From Francis Bacon to JG Ballard.
Age Decay are:
Chris Nicholls - Vocals & Guitar Rob Norbury - Bass Andy Sutor - Guitar James King - Drums Hannah Layhe - Synth
