Shinedown announce UK tour and new single
Rock radio giants, SHINEDOWN are thrilled to announce a 9-date UK tour for this winter.
The Jacksonville, FL-based four-piece unleashed their Rob Cavallo-produced fourth studio album, 'Amaryllis' earlier this year, playing a handful of album launch dates here, including a packed-to-the-rafters London Roundhouse. A triumphant slot at this year's Download Festival followed, and now comes your chance to catch the band on a major headline run, commencing this October.
SHINEDOWN bagged a ton of airplay for their 'Bully' single, which hit the airwaves this Spring. The band's brand new single, 'Enemies' goes to radio stations this week.
Frontman Brent Smith and his bandmates, Zach Myers (guitar), Barry Kerch (drums) and Eric Bass (bass) are set to spend the back end of the Summer headlining the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar touring festival in the US (www.rockstaruproar.com). The annual event kicks off in Kansas City on 17th August.
