The tour announcement follows last week’s release of the new music video for rock song, “Dead Don’t Die,” a rousing declaration of survival and an anthem about the resilience of the human spirit after trying times, written by guitarist Zach Myers about frontman Brent Smith. Filmed in London, the cinematic video was directed by Lewis Cater.
The acclaimed quartet with their explosive rock ‘n’ roll spirit, thought-provoking lyrics and melodic sensibility is comprised of members Brent Smith (vocals), Zach Myers (guitar), Eric Bass (bass/production) and Barry Kerch (drums). Hailed for their high-octane live shows, Shinedown will bring their hit album, “Planet Zero,” to life from coast to coast. “Planet Zero” debuted in the top five on the Billboard 200 chart and the Official U.K. Albums chart and at number one on six other Billboard charts including Top Album Sales, Rock, Hard Rock, and Alternative Albums charts. The album features searing and incisive tracks like "Dead Don’t Die" and number-one rock hit, "Planet Zero," as well as uplifting and unifying songs like the pop-rock anthem and number-one rock hit, "Daylight" and "A Symptom Of Being Human." “Planet Zero” boldly confronts the societal forces perpetuating divisiveness while offering a restorative path forward through empathy and open conversation, ultimately serving as a reminder that it is our human connections that matter the most. The band's “Daylight” video, set to the Amazon original version of the song, is a love letter to their fans and shows the impact the song’s message (you are never alone) had on their fans, during Shinedown’s sold-out Planet Zero World Tour. Watch the video here.
Known for the timely messages behind their chart-topping songs that resonate with global audiences, Shinedown has achieved astronomical success with over 6.5 billion global streams, 19 number-one rock hits, 15 platinum and gold singles, platinum or gold certification for every album and 10 million albums sold worldwide. The band is currently named number one on Billboard’s Greatest of All Time Mainstream Rock Artists chart, after notching the most-ever number ones (18) in the 40-year history of the Mainstream Rock Songs chart with a string of consecutive number one hit singles, including "Daylight," "Planet Zero" “Atlas Falls,” “Get Up,” “Attention Attention,” “Monsters” and “Devil” and landed each of their 29 singles in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart, tied with Foo Fighters for the most of any artist in history.
Since 2003, Three Days Grace has staked a spot among the hard rock vanguard, breaking records, topping charts and moving millions of albums worldwide. “Human”  marked the group’s second consecutive number-one slot on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums chart as well as their fourth consecutive debut in the top 20 of the Billboard Top 200 chart. It produced two number-one singles, “Painkiller” and “I Am Machine,” signaling their 13th overall and fifth consecutive number-one hit on the U.S. Active Rock Radio chart.
Additionally, the band consistently averages a staggering 3.9 million monthly listeners on Spotify—remaining one of the most listened-to rock bands in the world. “Transit of Venus,”  the band’s fourth studio album, soared to the top five of the Top 200 chart and garnered a nod for “Best Rock Album of the Year” at the Juno Awards. The seminal “One-X”  notched a Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) triple-platinum certification, as “Three Days Grace”  was minted platinum and “Life Starts Now”  earned gold. To date, their veritable arsenal of number ones, includes “Chalk Outline,” “The High Road,” “Misery Loves My Company,” “World So Cold,” “Good Life,” “Break,” “Never Too Late,” “Animal I Have Become,” “Pain,” “Just Like You” and “Home.”
