Crimson Symphony Officially Launches Powerful Debut “Empty”: An Anthemic Call for Mental Health Awareness Among Military Veterans

Las Vegas, NV – February 20, 2024 – Crimson Symphony, the brainchild of Air Force veteran and music entrepreneur Matt Gibson, has burst onto the music scene with their debut single, “Empty.” Released today on all major streaming platforms, “Empty” is more than just a song; it’s a rallying cry for mental health awareness, particularly among veterans and first responders.

Crafted from Gibson’s own experiences serving in the USAF for 20 years and witnessing firsthand the toll of trauma, “Empty” dives deep into the struggles of those grappling with PTSD and other mental health challenges. With haunting melodies and powerful lyrics, the track sheds light on the often-overlooked battles faced by those who dedicate their lives to serving others.

Featuring a stellar lineup of musical talent, “Empty” boasts collaborations with industry heavyweights such as Scott Wilson from Saving Abel on bass, Les and Joyce Carlsen from Bloodgood on background vocals, and Gil Sharone (known for his work with Marilyn Manson and The Dillinger Escape Plan) on drums.

Notably, legendary guitarist Bruce Bouillet of Racer X and The Scream fame has joined forces with Crimson Symphony for their upcoming song, “PTSD,” promising an electrifying follow-up to “Empty” and touching on the traumas we all struggle with as human beings.

Through Neural Tunes, a groundbreaking tech venture combining music and biometrics to alleviate anxiety, Gibson and his all-star team aim to provide tangible solutions for those struggling with mental health issues in the veteran and first responder communities using groundbreaking developments in Artificial Intelligence and Biometrics.

Additionally, Gibson and co-host Brent Cannon, a five-time Emmy-winning journalist (formerly NBC Newscaster SF/Bay Area), are preparing to launch “War Stories,” a video and podcast series dedicated to sharing the untold experiences of military veterans. Release dates TBA

As part of his mission to build a supportive community for veterans and first responders, Gibson is building a Veteran support community on a platform championing free speech and artistic expression.  The group is called US Veterans on X.
