The National, IDLES and more are going up for auction to raise funds for the Tiny Changes mental health charity. Find out more information below.Tiny Changes was set up in memory of Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison, who died by suicide in May 2018 after battling depression.

It was launched by the late musician’s family – his brother and Frightened Rabbit drummer Grant, brother Neil and his parents.Its name was inspired by a lyric from Frightened Rabbit’s 2008 song ‘Heads Roll Off’ (“While I’m alive, I’ll make tiny changes to Earth”), and it aims to improve the mental health of children and young people, with Hutchison’s family explaining that they hoped to continue “the positive impact that his art and music had on so many people”.Now, famous faces across the indie world have joined forces to raise money for the charity, and donated various pieces of memorabilia to an upcoming auction.Among the items hitting the auction block are two personal lyric books donated by Matt Berninger from The National.

The two cover works are seen in the ‘Cherry Tree’ EP and the band’s ‘Alligator’ album, and neither has ever been seen publicly before.IDLES’ Adam Devonshire has also donated a Fender American Jazz bass to the cause, which has also been signed by him.
