The Eversons - The Christmas Suicide Song

It's the time of year for drunken office party interaction, awkward family encounters and if you're lonely a greater focus on your bland existence. It's a sad fact that more suicides occur now than at any other time of year...still a novel subject matter for a 2 minute pop hit if you ask me.



The Eversons have been tinkering away in the studio the past week coming up with this gem in time for the festive season. Unfortunately not in time for a live performance at Christmas In The Park but hey, maybe next year.

The track is available for free here!

  1. This song is in the worst possible taste. It is disappointing and sad to see that Lil Chief would be behind something like this.

  2. It's not a "fact" that suicide rates are higher at Christmas than other times of year, but a popular myth.

    And from our own country, the Chief Coroner's suspected suicide data shows that December hasn't had the highest number of suspected suicides in any year from 2007-2011: http://www.spinz.org.nz/file/downloads/pdf/file_529.pdf
