Rock rarely gets its due on the more pop-leaning reality singing competitions, so it definitely piques some interest when a contestant shows his or her rock side. That's what happened Wednesday night (Feb. 26) on 'American Idol' when contestant Jessica Meuse took on a Shinedown favorite.
Shinedown's Brent Smith and Zach Myers recently stepped out from the comfort of their band to record a number of cover songs for the '(Acoustic Sessions)' EP. Smith recently spoke with 'Loudwire Reloaded' host Sandman about the fan-driven project and also dropped some interesting details about what's next for Shinedown. Check out the chat below and listen to 'Loudwire Reloaded' this weekend to hear a portion of the interview in person.
Shinedown have been busy working on their fifth studio album lately, but fans of the Florida rock act are in for yet another treat. The band is shooting a film to tell the story of Shinedown's history, but according to frontman Brent Smith, the movie will be much different than what you'd expect.
The cover song is a big part of many band's repertoire and Shinedown's Brent Smith and Zach Myers recently teamed up to lay down several acoustic covers of their favorite songs. The result is a new EP titled '(ACOUSTIC SESSIONS)' that will be released under the moniker Smith + Myers via iTunes and at all digital retailers on Jan. 28.
Calling themselves Room 4, this band's members range from ages 9 to 14, with one of them a member of the Mini Band, whom we've featured before. Watch Room 4 rock out in this video clip from 2012 as they cover a Shinedown hit!
The hits keep on coming from Shinedown 's 2012 album 'Amaryllis.' The disc has already spawned three No. 1 rock singles along with a No. 2, and the latest song to climb the charts is 'Adrenaline.' Now, you can watch the official video for the track above.
With the release of their fourth studio album ‘Amaryllis’ back in March of 2012, Shinedown have showed no signs of slowing down any time soon. The band recently premiered their latest video for the song ‘I’ll Follow You’ on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown and it can now be seen above.
Last week, Carnival of Madness revealed the arsenal of rock bands that will head up their 2013 trek including Shinedown, Papa Roach, Skillet, In This Moment and We as Human. Now, the first leg of dates and locations have been unveiled. Shinedown kicked off the inaugural run of Carnival of Madness back in 2010 and according to frontman Brent Smith are returning this year to reinvent the brand.
Shinedown headlined the inaugural Carnival of Madness trek back in 2010, but stepped aside as Theory of a Deadman and Evanescence did the honors the past two years. This year, Shinedown return to front the traveling festival they helped launch, and they've got a strong lineup hitting the road with them.
Just a few weeks ago, Shinedown and Three Days Grace announced the first leg of a co-headlining U.S. tour that kicks off in February 2013. Now, the two bands have added a second leg of dates to the trek.
