Shinedown are back in full force and will be releasing their first new album since 2012’s Amaryllis next week. This fifth album, Threat To Survival, comes out next week (September 18th) on Atlantic Records, and was produced by bassist Eric Bass, a change-up since Rob Cavallo produced the band’s last two albums. After releasing a music video for “Cut the Cord” back in June, they’re back with “Outcast,” a brand new song from their latest album.
Vocalist Brent Smith explains the new song,
“Threat To Survival’ refers to that primal instinct in all of us that determines how we respond to crisis and conflict — the idea of ‘fight or flight’ and the choices we make in any given situation. This album represents those deciding moments for us as a band. It’s a collection of scenarios that made us who we are, and is, by far, the most autobiographical album we’ve created to date.”
The last Shinedown album, Amaryllis, was certified Gold in late 2014, after debuting at #4 on the charts, selling 105,770 copies in its first week of release back in 2012.
