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.

“Face Down is a song I’d play until I’m 96 years old because it’s based on the experience of my brother and I growing up with domestic violence. The number of people who’ve reached out to us since Face Down came out is staggering and it shows just how many people experience abuse,” said RJA’s front man, Ronnie Winters. “The Symphonic Edition focuses on the ‘new life she has found,’ which is also my family’s experience. So, it’s about healing and how it’s hard and messy, but it happens and it’s worth working towards.”


The partnership between The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and is designed to help lift the voices of survivors and increase awareness of resources available to victims of domestic violence and their families, friends and community. provides the largest searchable database of domestic violence shelters and programs in the U.S. and Canada, as well as one of the most extensive sources of educational content, such as comprehensive guides, videos and articles.


“Oftentimes the difference between a victim of abuse staying and leaving is as simple as knowing that abuse is wrong and that they don’t deserve it,” said Ashley Rumschlag, CEO and President of Theresa’s Fund, the 501(c)3 nonprofit that operates “Face Down has created that ‘change mindset’ for so many. When you combine that with access to the powerful information on, it’s a recipe for potentially lifesaving change in someone’s life.”


The band is celebrating the Anniversary of their Multi-Platinum debut album “Don’t You Fake It” (one of Alt Press Most Influential Emo Albums) and their 4x Platinum single “Face Down” (video / audio / lyrics), a timeless and scathing indictment of domestic violence. Warped tour kids grew up on RJA, (who are hailed by Alt Press as one of the most influential EMO bands), and now the next generation of their fans are discovering “Face Down,” which RJA has taken to the next level with this modern and reimagined version of this dramatic and emotive song that hasn’t lost its potency on shedding a light on domestic violence.
