Shinedown‘s Brent Smith helped keep Spiritbox‘s spirits high after the band’s tour with Limp Bizkit was canceled.

According to the “Secret Garden” metallers, Smith sent them $10,000 toward covering the losses the band incurred due to the tour’s cancellation.

“Can we talk about what an amazing person @TheBrentSmith from @Shinedown is?” Spiritbox tweeted Thursday. “He just gifted us $10,000 towards our losses since our tour was recently cancelled. This is such an amazing and kind gesture, seriously thank you!”

And Smith wasn’t the only one who reached out. Spiritbox added that We Came As Romans, from whom they rented a large part of their light package for the Bizkit tour, waived the invoice to “help soften our losses.”

“We have never met @TheBrentSmith and we barely know the guys in @wecameasromans,” Spiritbox wrote. “These people were not helping out a friend in need, they are just truly selfless people who wanted to do something kind for another band. We hope to conduct ourselves like them someday.”

Limp Bizkit had canceled the tour “out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of the band, crew and most of all the fans.”
