Shinedown announce touring plans for 2009

Atlantic recording group Shinedown will kick off 2009 with an eight-country, European tour starting on January 21st at London's O2 Academy Islington. The Jacksonville, FL-based band will make stops in Paris, Amsterdam and Stockholm for the Radio Bandit Awards among numerous other cities.
Beginning with the Punk To Crunk Festival in Lafayette, LA, on February 23rd, the group returns for another run of U.S. tour dates (see attached itinerary). More shows will be announced as the band expects to be on the road for the rest of the year in support of The Sound Of Madness. Fans can check for the latest tour updates and information.
In other news, Shinedown has landed their second consecutive #1 hit at rock radio with "Second Chance." The band's run of hit singles from their first three albums makes them one of the most successful rock bands of the decade. Shinedown launched "Second Chance" with a blistering performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this past fall. The song's companion music video made its debut on at the start of the new year and has been added to FUSE's Rock & Alternative Countdown shows. "Second Chance" goes to Top 40 radio later this month.
Shinedown's latest album, The Sound Of Madness, was produced by multiple Grammy Award-winner Rob Cavallo (Kid Rock, Green Day, My Chemical Romance). Upon its release it became the band's biggest debut of their career landing at # 8 it's first week on the charts. The album has remained on the Billboard Top 200 album chart for 16 consecutive weeks. Both singles from The Sound of Madness: "Devour" and "Second Chance" have reached #1 on the Billboard Active and Mediabase Rock charts.

I like how they tour over seas and stuff, but they basically only tour the eastern and central parts of the U.S. Get over to California more often fellas, and I'm not talking about the southern part either, tour the northern part of California as well!
