During The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus’ soundcheck at the When We Were Young Festival, an announcement came over the loudspeaker stating the show for Day One was canceled due to high winds. RJA teamed up with Hawthorne Heights and Armor For Sleep and secured The Strat Hotel Casino for a free show.

Watch and hear literally everyone in attendance singing along to “Face Down” via video posted on their Instagram here.

Day Two, the When We Were Young festival goes as planned and RJA hits the stage.

During an interview with Variety Magazine, Frontman Ronnie Winter shared “It was one of my favorite sets in my entire career. Mainly because we were one of the first bands to play after day one ended so tragically. The vibe was high. It was like everyone, all at once, took a deep breathe and said, ‘Ok, this is really happening,’ which was really needed. In that moment, we were all united. It really was beautiful. I’m grateful I was alive to see it, and I felt honored to be a part of it in my small way.”

The audience, again, adding their voices to “Face Down” (which Billboard lists on their Greatest of All Time Alternative Songs Chart) during the powerful finale of RJA’s set.

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus (RJA) released a new symphonic version of their RIAA certified 5x Platinum hit Face Down on all streaming platforms Friday, October 21, followed by a new video on October 2. Face Down (Symphonic Edition) is a stirring, emotional follow-up to the original hit, both timeless and scathing indictments of domestic violence and its devastating impacts. The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus is partnering with leading digital domestic violence resource, DomesticShelters.org, to raise awareness about domestic violence and share free resources for people experiencing abuse.

The 2006 smash hit “Face Down” was written by RJA lead singer, Ronnie Winter, who witnessed firsthand the lifelong effects domestic violence has on abuse victims and their families. Since its initial release more than 15 years ago on the band’s RIAA certified Platinum debut album Don’t You Fake It (2006), “Face Down” has helped a countless number of domestic violence victims and survivors find their voices and work to escape abuse. “Face Down” has an enduring legacy of positive impact, with over 347 million streams on Spotify and over 120 million views of its original music video on YouTube alone. Fans of RJA and “Face Down” began an outpouring of support for the new Symphonic Edition on TikTok, with the announcement video generating more than 2.6 million views and thousands of comments in less than a week.

The band is well known for its Multi-Platinum debut album Don’t You Fake It (one of Alt Press Most Influential Emo Albums) and their 5x Platinum single “Face Down” (video / audio / lyrics), a timeless and scathing indictment of domestic violence. “Face Down” is also on the Billboard Greatest of All Time Alternative Songs chart.
