Shinedown Album "A Message Of Empowerment"
January 4, 2012


Shinedown
Yesterday, Shinedown announced that their upcoming album, Amaryllis, will be released on March 27 via Atlantic Records. Then the band immediately dropped the new single, "Bully," which impacted Rock radio and is already on sale digitally at iTunes and other retailers. The album will be available for pre-order beginning January 17 via http://store.shinedown.com, and a series of bundles will be offered featuring an array of exclusive extras.

Amaryllis sees Shinedown joining forces once more with producer Rob Cavallo (Kid Rock, Green Day), who previously collaborated with the band on 2008's The Sound of Madness. They recorded at Cavallo's Lightning Sound studios outside of Los Angeles as well as a pair of Hollywood landmarks, Ocean Way Recording and Capitol Studios.

"I've always seen Shinedown as its own entity – this living thing that's been growing and developing and evolving over the past 10 years," said frontman Brent Smith. "During the recording, the vision of what Shinedown is and where it's going became completely clear. Amaryllis is the manifestation of that vision, the centerpiece of what Shinedown is. It reflects on everything we've done and where we're heading. It's a message of empowerment, perseverance, and inspiration that I think speaks to fans that have been with us since the beginning as well as those who are just learning about who we are and what we're about. I can't wait for the world to hear it."
