Shinedown announces new album and debuts ominous video “Devil”

A truck ton of new stuff

Shinedown warns listeners of the deceitful ‘devils,’ in latest music video…

The Florida-based rock outfit Shinedown, has finally announced the name of their sixth studio album titled Attention Attention, out May 4 via Atlantic Records.

Moreover the band also shared an ominous grim new music video for the record’s first debut single, “Devil”.

The latest album is a follow-up to the band’s 2015 record Threat to Survival, comprised of 14 heavy aggressive tunes, which was specially produced and mixed by Shinedown’s very own bassist Eric Bass. 

Instead of playing it safe, the rock veterans are swaying away from their ‘poppy’ sound to thrive back into their vigorous, jolting angst which makes for one cut-throat beat.

The video broadcast which was directed by Bill Yukich whom worked alongside stars such as Beyoncé, Marilyn Manson, Korn and the Foo Fighters creates a dark atmosphere that compliments the band well.

The clips pan over the boys jamming out in a vibrant yellow threshold with golden flecks of glitter surrounding them, before taking an obscure turn.

According to the rock veterans the latest album is a collection of tracks that make for one powerful message to listeners.

In a press statement, the band explains:

“The 14-track album, Shinedown’s most raw and personal to date, is a mental, emotional and physical journey that follows an individual from life’s lowest lows to the highest highs, as anxieties dissipate and demons disappear.

The story that unfolds as the album progresses is a powerful statement about the resolve of the human spirit, our will to overcome struggles and the importance of respecting and leaning on one another.”

Not only is the album a collective that sends shock waves of intensity through your body but their dauntless statements are what makes each song so great.

Lead vocalist Brett Smith in an interview with Billboard adds:

“We call it digging in the dirt mentally. This person has to flush it out. In order to be able to get out of this room and out of this chair and go back into the world, they have to train themselves mentally.

They have to accept the fact that it’s not always going to be great. It’s not always going to be exactly the way you want it.”

Shinedown will also venture on a co-healing tour “Tied To Rock,” with Godsmack starting this July. The latest details regarding present tours and upcoming tours can be found here. Afterwards the boys will join Five Finger Death Punch on the road late this spring.

Attention Attention is available for pre-order as of today and can be purchased here.

Fans also have the option of purchasing a Shinedown exclusive deluxe bundle which will include a limited edition vinyl, flag, and shirts.

The first 500 copies made will have the bands personal signature on the CD’s and vinyls.
