Shinedown to release "AMARYLLIS" on March 27th, 2012
Atlantic recording group Shinedown has announced the upcoming release of their much anticipated new album. “AMARYLLIS” will arrive in stores and at all digital retailers on March 27th, 2012.
“AMARYLLIS” will be heralded by the eagerly awaited new single, “Bully.” The track is Shinedown’s first new music since seeing all six singles from 2008’s “THE SOUND OF MADNESS” go to #1 on the rock radio chart. Today, “Bully” impacts at multi-format rock radio outlets nationwide while also going on sale at all DSPs. A series of bundles will be on offer, featuring an array of exclusive extras – full details will be announced shortly.
Shinedown frontman Brent Smith explains: “I’ve always seen Shinedown as its own entity – this living thing that’s been growing and developing and evolving over the past 10 years. During the recording, the vision of what Shinedown is and where it’s going became completely clear. ‘AMARYLLIS’ is the manifestation of that vision, the centerpiece of what Shinedown is. It reflects on everything we’ve done and where we’re heading. It’s a message of empowerment, perseverance, and inspiration that I think speaks to fans that have been with us since the beginning as well as those who are just learning about who we are and what we’re about. I can’t wait for the world to hear it.”
Recorded at Cavallo’s Lightning Sound studios outside of Los Angeles and a pair of Hollywood landmarks, Ocean Way Recording and Capitol Studios, “AMARYLLIS” sees Shinedown joining forces once more with multiple Grammy Award-winning producer Rob Cavallo (Kid Rock, Green Day), who previously collaborated with the band on 2008’s record-breaking “THE SOUND OF MADNESS.” That album proved Shinedown’s mainstream breakthrough, debuting at #8 on the Billboard 200 before spending 120 consecutive weeks on the chart.
