According to Billboard, SHINEDOWN's "How Did You Love" has moved into the No. 1 position on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart, marking the eleventh time the Florida rockers have topped the list."How Did You Love" is the fourth single from SHINEDOWN's fifth studio album, "Threat To Survival", and the third No. 1 from the disc. Previous chart-topping singles from "Threat" were "Cut The Cord" and "State Of My Head". As previously reported, SHINEDOWN has officially started working on its sixth studio album and frontman Brent Smith said that the project may take a surprising turn. He explained: "Bassist Eric Bass actually has 22 pieces that I actually just heard five of them for the very first time." He added, "What he has written — and it's not lip service, man — what he has tapped into here, it's quite remarkable. I think people might be looking at the first legitimate concept record from the band." Asked whether SHINEDOWN could end up with a 22-song double album, Smith replied: "I can't guarantee that all of the song ideas will make the record. 'Cause we haven't done that in a while, where I come in and I actually have a lot of music already ready for me to listen to… It's inspiring. And it's cool, because [Eric] was inspired every day, and you can hear it in the music." SHINEDOWN recently booked a 12-date West Coast tour for this spring that will kick off on March 31 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, coming to a close on April 17 in Anaheim, California. Shortly after this trek concludes, SHINEDOWN will head to Europe for a month in support of IRON MAIDEN.
