“‘GET UP’ is a song about empathy, it’s a song about not being afraid to fail, it’s a song about inspiring others and now we want you to hear the song as it began,” says front man Brent Smith.
Stripped down and propelled by the undeniable power of Brent’s voice, the acoustic and piano versions highlight the raw vulnerability and poignant message at the song’s core. Speaking to the human spirit in a time of need and inspired by Brent watching his friend, Shinedown bassist Eric Bass, deal with clinical depression, quickly became a beacon of light for listeners around the globe, connecting with both those going through hardships of all types and those supporting loved ones who may be struggling.
The GET UP EP arrives as Shinedown gears up for the summer leg of their 2019 ATTENTION ATTENTION World Tour which kicks off at The Woodlands, TX on June 21st with support from Badflower, Dinosaur Pile-Up, and Broken Hands.
