With suicide becoming an increasing trend within and outside the military, Aleister is using his new single “Life Line” to speak to those fighting their demons and help guide them out of darkness.
Born Aleister Albarran of Las Vegas, NV, he is now also known as the local Alternative Rap artist, Aleister stationed in San Diego, CA. His core subject matter and inspiration for his music is Mental Health, Nihilism, Suicide, Consciousness and battling Depression. Having served at Norfolk, VA, Aleister saw the mental decline of many active-duty soldiers and the negative impact it placed upon their lives. Too often have these issues led to suicide among those on active duty and veterans alike. Aleister is trying to bring change using his voice to focus on taboo topics rarely expanded on to the masses. This path became his reality in 2018 after being influenced by artists like La Dispute, XXXTENTACION, Nowhere, NF, Left to Suffer, Billy Currington, Hans Zimmer, and Diveliner among others.
The depth of his music has attracted fans that believe in his cause, taking singles like “Woah” past 11K Spotify streams. His new single “Life Line” released on September 10th speaks up for those suffering in darkness. The track serves as the first single off his upcoming album and combats the stigma attached to suicide in the military. Aleister pours his heart to create a song that advocates for those struggling behind closed doors and reminding them that they’re not alone. The military leaves a lot of trauma and scars for many, and it reflects in their mental health. “Life Line” is a beacon of light inspiring hope in life after service.
