Just wanted to share something I happened upon today. There's a non-labeled band based out of New York, called Face the King who encourages bullied fans to write to them and they write back. As well, they're working on a song about the topic. I wound up listening to their music off their website continuously for a while. Think I might need to gather a girl's night to hit one of their New York shows. Anyone in? They have a harder rock ballad sound for the most part (interpret that strange description however you will. Clearly, I'm not a music reviewer!)
Anyway, if you're interested in learning about them, PolicyMic.com did an interview with them on their connection to the music movement, Hate the Hate.
