Shinedown has spent their fair share of time in the Hudson Valley and has always supported noble causes when possible. In the wake of the spread of COVID-19, the band has launched a charity drive to benefit DirectRelief.org and will be putting 100% of the proceeds towards humanitarian aid and medical equipment.

'Atlas Falls' was recorded during the Amrarylis sessions but didn't make the cut for some reason. We're excited about the release of the song and it's all to support a good cause. Here's Brent's message to the fans with a sneak preview of the song below. All you have to do to receive a download of the track is to purchase the coronavirus benefit t-shirt.

We need music, and each other, now more than ever as we all are witnessing a global pandemic, unlike anything we’ve ever seen in many generations. Myself, Barry, Zach, Eric, and our SHINEDOWN family want the entire world to know that we're in this together, and we must all do our part to continue to encourage, love, respect, and take care of each other. During the writing and recording of the ‘Amaryllis’ album, there was a song that meant a great deal to me and the band titled #AtlasFalls. Although the song did not make the album, I always felt that one day the world would hear it... It has never been more clear to me than right now, that the time has come for “Atlas Falls” to arrive. We've partnered with an incredible organization, @directrelief, who are doing important work globally to help the medical community receive protective equipment and essential medical supplies including masks, exam gloves, and isolation gowns. Download “Atlas Falls” with the purchase of a special t-shirt {LINK IN BIO} and 100% of proceeds will benefit #DirectRelief. To kick this off we’ll be donating 20K and hope you’ll join us in supporting the important work they’re doing too. As the world responds to this global pandemic, we want to offer a message of optimism and faith in humanity. We ask that you share this anthem of strength and show the world how you're delivering optimism and awareness during this time. We will rise above this! Much love and respect.
