Shinedown are back with a brand new record, and they are focusing on some vital issues.
It's called 'Planet Zero' and will be released on April 22 via Atlantic Records.
Vocalist Brent Smith had this to say about it:
"If we shut each other down and allow ourselves to be divided by the information we consume and the way we talk to each other, we lose our humanity. When you look outside of your phone, you’ll see there are so many people doing good things and trying to take care of each other. But we’re starting to see parts of society slip into an unknown. Planet Zero was written for all of us. The fact is that we’re all here on this planet no matter what, so it’s time to actually move forward together with empathy, perseverance and strength. With that said….welcome to PLANET ZERO.”
The artwork looks like this:
