Shinedown Plan To Release New Single In January

During a recent interview with New Jersey’s WSOU 89.5, Shinedown’s Brent Smith revealed that the band are planning to release a new single in January 2022. He said the following:

“I can tell you right now the first single, you’re gonna hear it in the first month of 2022. And then hopefully a couple of months later, there’ll be a [full-length] record out.”

Watch New Trailer For Shinedown’s “Attention Attention” Film

Shinedown have shared a new trailer for their “Attention Attention” film. The movie, which has been acquired by Gravitas Ventures, serves as a cinematic component of the band’s 2018 album of the same name and it will receive a digital and cable VOD release on September 3. The film was directed by Bill Yukich and it features all four members of the group along with actresses Francesca Eastwood and Melora Walters.

Here’s a description of the movie:

“Multi-platinum band Shinedown invites viewers into the world of ‘Attention Attention’ in their new film, bringing to life the story of the acclaimed chart-topping album, which simultaneously hit #1 on Billboard’s Alternative, Top Rock, and Hard Rock Albums Charts, debuted Top 5 on the Billboard 200, and has racked up more than 355 million global streams. A stunning sonic and visual work of art, the film weaves the 14 songs from the album into a provocative, visceral and thought-provoking journey that brings viewers along on a psychological, emotional and physical ride from life’s lowest lows to the highest highs. As anxieties dissipate and demons disappear, what emerges is a powerful and enduring statement about humanity, overcoming struggles, the importance of mental health, not being afraid to fail and the resolve of the human spirit.”

Shinedown previously commented:

“When we created ‘Attention Attention’, our vision was always to present the message as a sonic and visual experience. We’re really proud of what we created and are beyond excited to partner with Gravitas Ventures to finally bring the film in its entirety to the world.”

Yukich continued:

“‘Attention Attention’ the film is where the songs of the album come together with people this music has had a profound impact on. What begins as many stories, many voices, steadily becomes one message, one voice from many. Years in the making, I am beyond pleased to be able to share this vision, which was inspired by this amazing band.”

Tony Piantedosi, vice president of acquisitions at Gravitas Ventures, added:

“Shinedown found the ideal director in Bill Yukich to turn their acclaimed album into a dynamic cinematic experience. It’s a testament to their continued innovation as artists, and we look forward to unveiling the film to audiences worldwide.”

Shinedown Drummer Barry Kerch To Miss Upcoming Shows Following Breakthrough COVID-19 Case

Shinedown’s Barry Kerch will be missing the band’s upcoming shows after testing positive for COVID-19. During his absence Dustin Steinke will be filling in. Kerch has already been fully vaccinated, but some breakthrough cases like his are expected considering the vaccines are not 100% effective at stopping infection. Despite this, the shots are still effective at preventing death and severe illness.

Kerch commented:

“In the 20 years of Shinedown, I have never missed a show — until now. I regret to say that I, unfortunately, during rehearsals, contracted COVID. And before you get all crazy on me, I got fully vaxxed in April. I followed all the rules — wore masks, washed my hands, et cetera. Unfortunately, I’m one of those ones that got it even though I was vaxxed. So, unfortunately, I’m still testing positive. I’m quarantined. My health is good, which is good news. I’ve had symptoms, but I’m okay, and I will be okay. But until I finish my quarantine and test’s negative, I’m stuck in these four walls. I can’t risk it for my band and my crew; they’re all doing fine.”

He also added:

“That being said, woe is me — move on. The shows are still gonna happen. Our good friend Dustin Steinke — I remember him from a wonderful band called Sixx:A.M. — he’s gonna be filling in for me. And he’s gonna kick ass, and the band’s gonna kick ass. And I’m happy that the shows can continue on. And as soon as I’m healthy and able, I’ll get back out there. So that’s the news, folks. Till next time.”

Shinedown Named Billboard’s “Greatest Of All Time Mainstream Rock Artist”

Shinedown have topped Billboard’s list of the “Top Ten Greatest Mainstream Rock Artists Of All Time.” The band finished ahead of Godsmack, Three Days Grace, Van Halen, Disturbed, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Five Finger Death Punch, Seether, Foo Fighters, and Metallica.

Shinedown commented:

“There are no words to describe how this feels… To the fans/family, we say thank you. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again… we only have one boss… It’s everyone in the audience…

Thank you, Billboard, for this incredible acknowledgment. Thank you, Atlantic Records, promotion and In De Goot Entertainment for always believing in us, and allowing us to not only be an artist, but to be ourselves. We LOVE YOU… And to ALL of terrestrial radio, thank you for being there from the beginning… We are just getting started. Onward and upwards we RISE together.”

Guitarist Zach Myers added:

“As you know, around here we don’t celebrate the accolades of this business to often… It’s kinda like monopoly money… fun to walk around with… but what’s it worth? Today I’ll celebrate this… then tomorrow, me and my three best friends will try and figure out what’s next. Forever grateful for y’all… What a ride, man…”
