To help with the most urgent personal protective equipment needs facing the health workers responding to the coronavirus, Shinedown have partnered with non-profit humanitarian aid organization Direct Relief.
Shinedown is offering some optimism and faith in humanity by making available a never-before-heard, brand new song “Atlas Falls,” which will benefit Direct Relief, who are currently working to provide personal protective equipment and essential medical items, including protective masks, exam gloves and isolation gowns, to U.S. and international health workers.
The song is available now for download with the purchase of a special T-shirt. 100% of proceeds will go to Direct Relief, one of the largest providers of humanitarian medical resources in the world operating in the U.S. and in more than 100 countries around the world. The band is kicking this off with a $20,000 donation of their own to Direct Relief. The organization is working in overdrive to get protective gear into the hands of as many health workers as possible as quickly as possible, with emergency deliveries leaving daily for medical facilities across the U.S. Drawing inspiration from the Greek myth of Titan Atlas who carries a celestial sphere on his shoulders, the song is a reassuring anthem that if Atlas falls, we will hold each other up in times of strife.
