HELLYEAH will release its new single, “Hush”, on March 13 as part of “No More Week.” The song’s lyrics, written by vocalist Chad Gray, discuss his personal experience growing up in a home with domestic violence, and aim to shed light on a hidden subject while letting other survivors know that they are not alone.
Created by No More (a unifying symbol and awareness movement focused on engaging bystanders to end domestic violence and sexual assault) along with its many partners, “No More Week” is designed to spark conversations around issues of domestic violence and sexual assault and galvanize more communities, organizations and corporations to make them a priority year-round.
Across the nation, advocates equipped with free education and awareness tools, will host more than 50 “No More Week”events. They span a wide range of activities, including a cross-country skating event, fundraisers for local service providers, bystander education workshops, screenings of films that highlight these often hidden and stigmatized issues and the launch of state and local No More campaigns.
No More was launched in 2013 with the support of nearly every domestic violence and sexual assault prevention organization in the country. They all agreed that increasing awareness for these issues with a unifying awareness symbol could have a tremendous positive impact. Representatives from these organizations serve as advisors on No More’s Steering Committee, and all individual donations and any profits generated from product sales in the No More store are donated to support their lifesaving work.
