Shinedown’s Brent Smith & Zach Myers To Participate In Washington, D.C. “Out Of The Darkness” Community Walk For Suicide Prevention

Shinedown’s Brent Smith and Zach Myers will be joining DC101’s One More Light walk team for the 12th annual Washington, D.C. “Out Of The Darkness” community walk on October 20. That walk will benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and more than 2,500 people are expected to participate. This is just one of more than 400 “Out Of The Darkness” community walks that are set to be held nationwide this year. In total, 250,000 walkers are expected to participate around the country raising millions of dollars for suicide prevention efforts. Smith commented:

“People from all walks of life must be compassionate and understanding toward one another. When we do that, we can help save lives. We will walk on Saturday to show our support for our fellow brothers and sisters, and show the entire world that we recognize that mental health is just as real as physical health.”

Shinedown Premiere “Get Up” Video

Shinedown have premiered their Bill Yukich directed video for “Get Up.” The song is an uplifting track that “speaks to the human spirit in a time of need” and it was created to help people with their personal struggles. Frontman Brent Smith wrote the song after seeing his friend, bassist Eric Bass, suffer with depression. Smith was able to relate due to the fact that he has battled his own demons in the past. He said the following: “We don’t want people to feel ashamed about what they’re going through. …You’re not going to be defined by your failures. You’re going to be defined by the fact that you didn’t give up.” The singer used to try to battle his issues with drinking. “Attention Attention” was actually the first album he wrote while sober.
