Shinedown’s “Attention Attention” Film To Receive Digital And Cable VOD Release In September

Shinedown’s “Attention Attention” film has officially been acquired by Gravitas Ventures. The movie 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 band along with actresses Francesca Eastwood and Melora Walters.

The following description of the movie was shared in a press release:

“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 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.”

“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.”

Shinedown Planning To Release New Album After The Summer

During a recent interview with Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF, Brent Smith offered an update on the new Shinedown album. According to him, the band are planning to release the effort after the summer.

Smith said the following:

“I can’t give you exact dates on everything for the new record. I can tell you that we will be looking after summer for release. So that is something I can tell you, as far as new music is concerned, with the new album. What we’re doing exactly right now, Zach is actually going to be in Charleston in about five days, ’cause that’s where we’re recording [the new album] — at Eric’s studio that we just finished. So he comes in in about five days. Myself and Eric and Zach, we’re putting kind of like the finishing touches on stuff that we were working on previously. Barry is gonna arrive around April, and then we’re gonna cement the recording process of that.”

He also added the following about touring plans:

“We’re working with promoters right now, kind of doing an overlay of how it can be done. Each day we’re starting to get good news and better news, but we have to be mindful. I know a lot of people are concerned about the variants [of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that causes COVID-19], but that’s what viruses do — they mutate. The biggest thing is we need to be able to trust the medical community, trust the people to get us through this. But as far as touring is concerned, we’re locking in [dates]. Fingers crossed, we’re gonna be doing shows — full Shinedown — hopefully by August of this year.”

Watch Shinedown’s Brent Smith And Eric Bass Perform Cover Of “Christmas Time Is Here”

Shinedown’s Brent Smith and Eric Bass recently performed a cover of Vince Guaraldi’s “Christmas Time Is Here” from the 1965 TV special “A Charlie Brown Christmas” for Baltimore’s 98 Rock. You can check that out below, along with acoustic performances of “Atlas Falls,” “Unity,” and “Monsters.”

Shinedown’s Brent Smith Criticizes Dr. Anthony Fauci For “Lying To Society” About Santa Claus

Here’s an odd holiday story for you. During CNN’s “Sesame Street ABC’s Of COVID-19 Town Hall,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious-disease expert, tried to reassure kids that Santa Claus has been vaccinated and will still be able to come to their houses amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, Shinedown frontman Brent Smith apparently took issue with those comments saying that Fauci is “lying to society.”

Fauci told Elmo and the children the following when asked if it is safe for Santa to deliver presents:

“Well, I have to say I took care of that for you because I was worried you all would be upset. So what I did a little while ago, I took a trip up there to the North Pole. I went there and I vaccinated Santa Claus myself. I measured his level of immunity, and he is good to go. He can come down the chimney. He can leave the presents, he can leave, and you have nothing to worry about. Santa Claus is good to go.”

Smith then shared a New York Post article regarding the statement along with the following criticism:

“I’m going to go out on a limb here. Lying to society this far into a pandemic is not something I would encourage. #tellthetruth #clockisticking”

After receiving backlash from fans, the singer added:

“Hey everyone I hear you… I won’t even yell back. Much love ❤️ to all… Happy Holidays😘”

Shinedown Announce “SD Limited” Premium Apparel Line And Career-Spanning Vinyl Box Set

Shinedown have announced a new premium apparel line, which they are calling “SD Limited.” The first collection in the merch line will focus on the band’s 2008 album “The Sound Of Madness” and it will be available on Black Friday (November 27). A career-spanning vinyl box set will be available for pre-order that day as well.

Zach Myers said the following about “SD Limited”:

“We are thrilled that SD Limited is finally coming into fruition and set to be released imminently. This is an idea that we have been looking to launch for a while, but the rigors of touring always kept it on the back burner.

Earlier this year, Adam from EightySeven Creative Agency had gotten in touch about working together on a project, and I knew he was perfect for this venture with his inspired and futuristic take on concert merchandising. He, alongside myself and our longtime merchandiser Kent Sinkler, set out to deconstruct the classic rock shirt, throw it in a blender with street fashion, and strip it all down to a central message of community. We wanted to appeal to everyone, whether they had heard of our band or not, but truly wanted to serve our most loyal fans. It was important that the products were made with high-quality materials, with unique graphics and color ways, but most important that the themes that have carried our band across the world for the last 20 years were woven into each piece.”

The band also said the following about the vinyl box set:

“Starting 11/27 you will be able to pre-order the Box Set featuring gold vinyl pressings of all 6 of our albums. The box set includes a limited number of 2k units worldwide, and contains a brand new 15th anniversary cover for ‘Us and Them!’ The Box Set will begin shipping in January and all individual vinyl will ship in February”

As the group mentioned, individual limited edition vinyl pressings will also be available including “Leave A Whisper” on clear blue vinyl, “Us And Them” on clear purple vinyl, “The Sound Of Madness” on white vinyl, “Amaryllis” on rustic green vinyl, “Threat To Survival” on clear red vinyl, and “Attention Attention” on clear yellow vinyl. The box set will ship on January 22 and the individual vinyl albums will ship on February 12.

Brent Smith Offers Update On New Shinedown Album: “We’re, Like, 40 Percent There In Regards To The Writing Process”

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.”
