Atlantic recording group Shinedown has announced the release of their much-anticipated new album. “THREAT TO SURVIVAL” – the multi-platinum certified rock band’s first new album in three years – arrives everywhere on September 18th. “THREAT TO SURVIVAL” follows 2012’s RIAA gold certified “AMARYLLIS.” The album includes the #1 rock radio smash “Cut The Cord”.
“Threat To Survival refers to that primal instinct in all of us that determines how we respond to crisis and conflict – the idea of ‘fight or flight’ and the choices we make in any given situation,” explains Shinedown frontman Brent Smith. “This album represents those deciding moments for us as a band. It’s a collection of scenarios that made us who we are, and is, by far, the most autobiographical album we’ve created to date.”
“Cut The Cord” - produced by Shinedown’s own Eric Bass - arrived last month and fast ascended to #1 at Active Rock radio outlets across the country. The single’s immediate success continues a record-setting streak in which every one of the 19 singles released over Shinedown’s decade-plus career has ascended to the upper regions of the radio charts – a feat that no other rock band has achieved.
Shinedown is currently traveling the U.S. on a very special summer tour, their first major trek in more than two years. The dates see Shinedown visiting theatres and other intimate venues across the country, performing a unique set that includes classic hits, deep cuts, and best of all, new songs from the upcoming “THREAT TO SURVIVAL.” Support on most dates comes from special guests Nothing More.
Known worldwide for their unparalleled streak of hits, Shinedown is without question one of the most successful rock bands of the 21st century. The band’s unmatched ascendancy over multi-format rock radio commenced with their 2003 debut “LEAVE A WHISPER” and the 2005 follow-up, “US AND THEM.” Together, both albums yielded seven consecutive top 5 radio hits, including the #1 blockbuster, “Save Me.”
Released in 2008, “THE SOUND OF MADNESS” proved to be Shinedown’s mainstream breakthrough, debuting at #8 on the Billboard 200 before spending 120 consecutive weeks on the chart. The album made rock history, with each of its six singles reaching #1 on the airplay rankings, including the double-platinum certified crossover smash, “Second Chance,” which also went to #1 on the Hot AC chart and top 3 at Top 40.
“AMARYLLIS” followed in 2012 and immediately entered Billboard’s “Rock Albums” chart at #1 while also coming in at #4 on the overall Billboard 200 with over 105,000 units sold in the first week - the multi-platinum group's biggest chart debut thus far. The album spawned a trio of massive hits in “Bully,” “Unity,” and “Enemies,” all of which reached #1 at Active Rock radio, bringing Shinedown’s tally of consecutive chart-toppers at the format to an amazing nine and counting. In addition, two additional singles from “AMARYLLIS” – “I’ll Follow You” and “Adrenaline” – both reached the top 5 at Rock radio, furthering Shinedown’s extraordinary streak of top-charting singles.
Hailed by fans as an explosive and exciting live act, Shinedown have toured hard throughout their career, including countless headline treks and high profile festival appearances. In addition, the band’s numerous national television appearances include performances on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and TODAY, CBS’ The Early Show, and TBS’ Conan, among others. In 2009, Shinedown received an American Music Award nomination for “Best Alternative Rock Band.”
