SHINEDOWN is indisputably one of the most successful rock bands of the past 10+ years, enjoying an unparalleled streak of hits. The band’s current album “AMARYLLIS” entered the Billboard 200 at #4 upon its release (#1 on the Rock Album chart), and has already spawned three consecutive #1 singles with “Bully,” “Unity,” and “Enemies.” Over the course of their illustrious career, SHINEDOWN has scored seventeen #1 singles (including their current streak of ten consecutive #1 rock radio hits). The band’s latest single “I’ll Follow You” is currently #3 on the rock chart. A live recording of the song was filmed at the historic Henson Studio in Hollywood for The Warner Sound’s “The Live Room” series (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECEK-g7xayc). Shinedown’s unprecedented ascendancy over multi-format rock radio commenced with their RIAA platinum certified 2003 debut “LEAVE A WHISPER,” its gold certified 2005 follow-up, “US AND THEM,” and 2008’s platinum certified “THE SOUND OF MADNESS.” One of the most exciting live rock acts, Pollstar has listed Shinedown’s most recent headlining trek on their Top 20 Concert Tours of 2013. Devoted to connecting with their fans firsthand, Shinedown tours relentlessly, logging more than 450 shows over an astonishing span of 31 months. In turn, that fanbase has remained loyal since the beginning and continues to grow each year as the band has constantly evolved, even reinvented themselves, in a never-ending quest to continue to push the envelope of rock music. Frontman Brent Smith has summed it up by coining the phrase, “Rock n Roll is not a genre of music; Rock n Roll is a way of LIFE.”
SHINEDOWN is: Brent Smith (vocals), Barry Kerch (drums), Zach Myers (guitars), and Eric Bass (bass).
