Brent Smith recently took to social media to offer an update on the new Shinedown album. According to him, the band are about 40 percent through the writing process.
Smith said the following about the new material:
“I think that it is definitely — there are parts of it that are gonna be a product of what we are all going through this year. But there’s also a lot of soul searching on this record. [We’re] really, really focusing super, super hard on the lyrical content, and the way that it sounds.
For us to look at everything that’s going on right now and to listen to some of the new-school artists and seeing what they’re doing with production and what have you, you can always learn from different people,” he continued. “It’s interesting the state of kind of where music is right now, ’cause there’s a lot of it.”
He also added:
“I’d say we’re, like, 40 percent there in regards to the writing process. We’ll see by the end of the year where we’re at, and then the timeline for getting everything together.”
