You saved my life // Not once but twice

“’Daylight’ is the most powerful of pop-rock songs created to remind us that we are truly all in this together.” – PEOPLE

 

New York, NY – [June 1, 2022] – Multi-platinum band Shinedown have released their soaring and poignant anthem “Daylight.” Offering an assurance that you are never alone, the single’s meaningful portrait of a vital human connection reflects the importance of our relationships and the people in our lives whose support and empathy help get us through to the next day.

 

PRESS HERE to listen to “Daylight” from Shinedown’s forthcoming album Planet Zero out July 1st on Atlantic Records. Check out the first look and interview with front man Brent Smith via PEOPLE.

 

“This is about the human condition. We’ve got to live, and we’ve got to live with one another. And that should be something that is celebrated and not tolerated. That’s what ‘Daylight’ really represents. It’s our humanity. It’s an understanding that we’re all on this planet together, and we’ve got to figure out ways to take care of one another. A lot of times, it may just be asking someone ‘are you okay?’ because you could potentially save someone’s life just by asking. We can’t lose our empathy and courage towards each other, or our willingness to pick someone up if you see them on their knees, because there’s gonna be a moment in time when you need someone to pick you up,” says Brent.

“Daylight” is the latest addition to a catalog that has earned Shinedown recognition for their timely and relevant messages behind their chart-topping hits that resonate with not only their global audience and the rock community, but the greater public and our culture at large. With more than 6.5 billion global streams, the record for the most mainstream rock #1 hits ever, platinum or gold certification for all their albums, and major media praise, Shinedown has cemented their status as one of the most vital and forward-thinking powerhouses in music.

Planet Zero, which already spawned the band’s record-breaking 18th #1 hit with “Planet Zero,” is available for pre-order HERE.

 

Planet Zero’s previously released lead single “Planet Zero” and album track “The Saints of Violence and Innuendo” introduced an album that is an incisive yet optimistic look at the fractures and frays of a society that has undergone many challenges in the last few years, seeing Shinedown take on the forces that are keeping us divided at a time when we need to be coming together. The high-concept, viscerally charged album, produced by Shinedown’s Eric Bass, takes a hard look at the divisiveness among those of differing ideologies, cancel culture ran rampant, the toxicity of social media, the need for honesty in our public discourse, and the corrosive effects of these things on mental health and humanity. A dystopian saga that warns of dangerous dehumanizing consequences, Planet Zero is a reminder that if we shut each other down, we risk losing empathy, respect for one another, and our ability to communicate and unify in a way that leads to actual progress and understanding. The album also shares hope, perseverance, triumph, and reminders that we all need one another, like on “Daylight.” After all, it is the band’s impassioned striving for unity that has long been at the heart of their creative output.

The Planet Zero World Tour (produced by Live Nation) begins in Bonner Springs, KS on September 3rd with special guests Jelly Roll and John Harvie, kicking off a U.S. run of fall shows that will see the record-breaking, chart-topping band bring their new music, #1 hits, fan favorites and biggest stage show yet to cities from coast to coast. Full routing below which also includes festival performances at Louder Than Life on September 23 in Louisville, KY and Aftershock on October 9 in Sacramento, CA. Beginning June 3, Shinedown will embark on a UK/Europe run of festival performances and select shows with Iron Maiden followed by Canadian dates with special guests Pop Evil and Ayron Jones in July and August.

PRAISE FOR PLANET ZERO

“We’re lucky to have Planet Zero as a warning flare. The album is Shinedown’s most strident statement yet. From cancel culture to Twitter addiction to divisive politics, Shinedown take shots at the forces that undermine our shared humanity.” – GRAMMY.com

“a blatant warning—lose connection and lose humanity.” – Parade

“…a high-concept treatise on societal affairs during the past 22 months, including the travails of living through a pandemic, the pitfalls of social media, mental health issues, political divisiveness, partisan media and cancel culture.” – Billboard

“… ravages sound waves and inspires thoughts. It’s a great blend of art and attitude.”–

American Songwriter

 

“Shinedown’s songs are always socially relevant and ‘Planet Zero’ is no exception…they are back with more powerful messaging about humanity…”  – Spectrum News

ABOUT SHINEDOWN

 

Multi-platinum, record-breaking band Shinedown – Brent Smith [vocals], Zach Myers [guitar], Eric Bass [bass, production], and Barry Kerch [drums] – were  named #1 on Billboard’s Greatest Of All Time Mainstream Rock Artists Chart, after notching the most ever #1s (17) in the 40-year history of the Mainstream Rock Songs Chart with a string of consecutive #1 hit singles Atlas Falls,” “ATTENTION ATTENTION,” GET UP,” “MONSTERS,” DEVIL,” and now “Planet Zero.” With  over 6.5 billion global streams, 18 #1 Active Rock hits, 10 million albums sold worldwide, 14 platinum and gold singles, platinum or gold certification for all their albums, all 28 career singles reaching the Top 5 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs Chart, and countless sold-out arena tours, Shinedown have also become an essential cultural force as evidenced by their major media acclaim and participation in the prestigious 92Y Talks series.  The band’s last studio album, 2018’s acclaimed  ATTENTION ATTENTION , debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 and simultaneously hit #1 on Billboard’s Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock Albums Charts.  Shinedown also recently made their ATTENTION ATTENTION feature film available worldwide. A stunning visual counterpart to their 2018 acclaimed album of the same name, the film, directed by Bill Yukich (Beyoncé, Metallica, Wiz Khalifa), brings to life the album’s narrative about a mental health journey and the resolve of the human spirit, weaving together 14 songs into a provocative and thought-provoking cinematic story that illuminates yet another dimension of Shinedown’s limitless creativity.
