Leading the charge for 21st century rock, multi-platinum, record-breaking band Shinedown - Brent Smith [vocals], Zach Myers [guitar], Eric Bass [bass, production], and Barry Kerch [drums] – has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, earned 11 platinum and gold singles and four platinum and gold albums, and amassed more than 1.5 billion total overall streams to date. Each of Shinedown's singles released throughout their career have reached the Top 5 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs Chart – an unparalleled feat. The chart-topping band's latest album yet, ATTENTION ATTENTION (Atlantic Records) uproots convention and delivers a personal, poignant, and powerful body of work that evolves from ruin to reclamation to revelation. As anxieties dissipate and demons disappear, an enduring statement about the resolve of the human spirit emerges, as seen on tracks like the #1 rock radio hits "GET UP" and "DEVIL." Shinedown's distinct mix of explosive rock n roll spirit, thought-provoking lyrics, melodic sensibility and cinematic flourishes colors ATTENTION ATTENTION, which simultaneously hit #1 on Billboard's Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock Albums Charts, debuted Top 5 on the Billboard 200 and led to two iHeart Radio Music Award nominations for Rock Artist of the Year and Rock Song of the Year for "DEVIL." Current single, the uplifting anthem "GET UP," which has amassed more than 25 million total streams and is quickly climbing at Alternative Radio, has been galvanizing listeners around the globe with its offer of hope, empathy and encouragement in the face of personal struggles, whatever they may be. Garnering praise from the likes of Huffington Post, Salon, Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, Buzzfeed, Grammy.com and more, "GET UP" has become a light in the darkness, born out of Brent watching his friend, Shinedown bassist Eric Bass, deal with clinical depression. With a message reaching far beyond any one circumstance, genre or label, "GET UP" quickly began resonating, landing the band on Live with Kelly and Ryan, 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 #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. Hailed for their high-octane live shows, Shinedown continues to engender diehard love from millions of global fans and has racked up countless sold-out tours and festival headlining sets as well as numerous national television appearances such as The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and TODAY. In 2019, Shinedown will be on the road with their ATTENTION ATTENTION World Tour.
Badflower don't care what you think about them. They don't care whether you get what they're doing, because their thoroughly modern rock is more ahead of the curve than anyone else you might try and pigeonhole them with. And they really don't care whether you like the messages in their songs, because what they sing about is important, if uncomfortable. That attitude might seem misguided for a band who have yet to release their debut album. In this age where music's money comes largely from touring, fans are more important than ever - they're the ones who buy the tickets to shows and ultimately give artists the opportunity to keep playing and progressing. But the LA four-piece aren't complete beginners - since forming in 2013, frontman Josh Katz, guitarist Joey Morrow, drummer Anthony Sonetti, and bassist Alex Espiritu have toured relentlessly across the US and beyond, building up a reputation as a formidable live force as well as an ever-growing mass of loyal followers and praise from the likes of Billboard, Forbes, and Consequence Of Sound.
