Shinedown’s Attention Attention World Tour kicks off February 20th in Estero, FL at Hertz Arena, which will see the band pack arenas backed by their biggest, most eye-popping production yet. Papa Roach and Asking Alexandria open. Amidst the tour, Shinedown will kick off a more intimate, limited run of shows in May entitled An Evening With Shinedown, offering fans an exclusive, up-close-and-personal live experience. These special shows, inspired by the high demand for tickets to Shinedown’s three intimate, year-end shows at the House of Blues in Orlando, begin May 6th in New Orleans at The Fillmore and will include back-to-back nights in Atlanta, Myrtle Beach, and Nashville. Additionally, Shinedown will return to their roots in Jacksonville, FL for an epic set at Welcome to Rockville on May 4th, and will headline WNOR Lunatic Luau 2019 on May 17th in Virginia Beach, VA, MMRBQ on May 18th in Camden, NJ, Rocklahoma on May 24th in Pryor, OK, Inkarceration Festival on July 12th in Mansfield, OH, and Riff Fest on July 13th in Detroit, MI.

Shinedown has released their new anthemic single “Get Up,” which has topped the Active Rock and Top 25 Alternative charts. The uplifting hit has amassed more than 27 million total streams, galvanizing listeners around the globe with its offer of hope, empathy and encouragement in the face of personal struggles, whatever they may be. The powerful song speaks to the human spirit in a time of need, something that front man Brent Smith is deeply connected to after battling his own personal demons. “Get Up” became a light in the darkness, born out of Smith watching his friend, Shinedown bassist Eric Bass, deal with clinical depression. When Smith put pen to paper, a beautiful, universal song rooted in Smith and Bass’ raw vulnerability took shape. Reaching far beyond any genre or label, “Get Up” quickly began resonating, soundtracking TODAY‘s look back at 2018, breaking a new record for Shinedown by giving the band the most Rock Airplay Top 10s ever and their 13th No. 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs Chart (the second most in the history of the chart, tied with Van Halen), and becoming a fan favorite at arena shows on tour where the crowd response is palpable.

Additionally, Shinedown has been nominated for two iHeart Radio Music Awards including Rock Song of the Year for No. 1 Active Rock hit “Devil” and Rock Artist of the Year.

Shinedown’s chart-topping album Attention Attention, out now via Atlantic Records, simultaneously hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock Albums Charts and debuted Top 5 on the Billboard 200. The story that unfolds as the album progresses is a poignant and enduring statement about humanity, touching on topics such as overcoming struggles, mental health, not being afraid to fail and the resolve of the human spirit as seen on tracks like “Devil,” and the anthemic “The Human Radio.” Given the deeply personal nature of the record, Shinedown went in-house for production for the first time ever, enlisting bassist Eric Bass to produce and mix the album in its entirety.

Shinedown – Brent Smith [vocals], Zach Myers [guitar], Eric Bass [bass, production], and Barry Kerch [drums] – has sold more than ten million albums and ten million singles worldwide, has 11 platinum and gold singles and four platinum and gold albums, and 14 No. 1 active rock hits, and more than 1.5 billion total overall streams to date. Each of Shinedown’s 24 charting singles on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs Chart has reached the top five – an unparalleled feat.
