Anna and Ross's son Buddy was stillborn in June 2013. The song 'Hurts Like Hell' is a tribute to Buddy, and all the parents, family, and loved ones who have experienced the tragic loss of a child. 'Saying goodbye, before having the opportunity to say hello' is a devastating loss to contend with.
Ross and Anna's friends gather to farewell Buddy.
Buddy and was stillborn at 42 weeks. It's truly quite difficult to express the hurt I felt upon losing Buddy. Experiencing a significant loss placed me at a crossroads where I could have hit rock bottom, or reached for the stars. The healing process is monumental but I'm blessed to have a beautiful, strong, and loving wife and inspirational family. I'm also fortunate to have, quite possibly, the best group of mates anybody could ask for.
With help from four of my good friends and old bandmates, I was able to make some sense of my loss through music, and this song was made into a reality because of them.
