NEW YORK CITY – December 30, 2019 – Madison Rising and the Navy SEAL Foundation (NSF) are proud to announce the upcoming release of “Men of Steel,” a new rock anthem that pays tribute to all those who serve.
The song is a special collaboration that started when Madison Rising approached the NSF earlier this year about a potential partnership. “I had always wanted to figure out a way to have music support our mission at the Foundation, and Madison Rising was an ideal partner to make that happen,” said Chris Irwin, Director of Partnerships for the NSF. As a result, Madison Rising worked with the Navy SEAL Foundation to write a song about teamwork, camaraderie, and the service member experience, that directly supports those it honors. “By donating half of all proceeds on this song to the Foundation, Madison Rising is committing itself to not only raising awareness about our mission, but also raising funds to help us execute that mission,” Irwin stated.
Madison Rising’s mission is to honor veterans, first responders, and active-duty military members by making great rock music that reinforces true American values. This collaboration with the Navy SEAL Foundation is the latest initiative in support of that mission. The band is led by Rio Hiett, a retired Master Sergeant who served 20-years in the Air Force, “Madison Rising is on a mission to honor our military however possible and we know this song will have an incredible impact on the community.” The band is well known for hard-charging, patriotic performances at venues including NFL games, NASCAR, and other special events. They’ve shared the stage with rock legends Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Toby Keith, Weezer, and many others, and they have a large following among veterans and first responders.
“Men of Steel,” will be released on all major digital music platforms on January 1, 2020. Every stream and download will help support the men, women, and children of NSW.
