Lowestoft-based band Slick Division have teamed up with charity Back 2 Life to release the single, called 'Fractured', which has been climbing the charts since its release on Sunday.

25pc of money raised from the sales will go towards the charity's community fund for mental health, which aims to raise £250,000.

Songwriter Paul Hammond, of Back 2 Life, has battled with PTSD since 2012. He said: "We have linked up with a superb local band who really are up-and-coming and are on the verge of breaking into the big time.
