Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival Main Stage Tour

Metal band HELLYEAH have released their official video for their anti-domestic violence single “Hush”.

The essence of the song is that there’s something very empowering about the realization and recognition of where you are in life. Even in the darkest of times. It’s human nature to adapt and overcome or at least find comfort on some level.  Isolation is just that. Uncomfortable. But considering the alternative isolation becomes a womb or safe place. I lived that existence and music got me through those dark times. It saved my life,” says vocalist Chad Gray.  “No matter how cold and lonely it felt, there was a voice speaking to me and that voice was music. When I listened to music, I interpreted the artists’ message however I deemed it applicable to my life and surroundings, which Is why I write lyrics that are open-ended. I think the mantra of this song is no matter how alone you may feel, you’re not alone. But it’s up to you to speak out and expose your situation. If you let people know and let them in, you’re not alone.

Having partnered with leaders of the anti-violence movement, NO MORE, and their associated organization, A CALL TO MEN, HELLYEAH has been able to raise awareness about the need to educate to prevent domestic violence.  Now they seek to raise funds to further the important work that A CALL TO MEN does. The Indiegogo fundraising campaign began April 13th, donations can be made at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hellyeah-hush-no-more/x/10481500  It will feature a limited edition t-shirt inspired by the collaboration as well as personalized higher-end items so that they might raise their initial goal of $10K.
