Atlantic recording artist SHINEDOWN has announced plans for a very special summer tour, the platinum-certified rock band's first major trek in more than two years. The dates will see SHINEDOWN visiting theatres and other intimate venues across the country, performing a unique set that will include classic hits, deep cuts, and best of all, new songs from the band's hugely anticipated fifth studio album.
The tour gets underway July 9 with the first announced date taking place at Tulsa, Oklahoma's Brady Theater on July 14, and then continues into August, with additional dates to be announced soon. ShinedownNation members will have access to pre-sale tickets and VIP packages beginning Tuesday, April 14, in advance of the general on-sale starting on April 17. NOTHING MORE will serve as support on the bulk of the headlining dates.
"We have a lot in store for 2015 and beyond," says SHINEDOWN's Brent Smith. "We have been working on our fifth album for the better part of two years, and it is almost complete. That being said, we felt it was time to return to the road to let everyone know that we are 100% back and ready to entertain!"
In addition, SHINEDOWN has also slated a series of top-billed festival performances, with highlights including Rock Fest XV (July 16) and Moondance Jam (July 18).
Meanwhile, SHINEDOWN is currently hard at work in a Los Angeles studio putting finishing touches on the eagerly awaited follow-up to 2012's RIAA gold-certified "Amaryllis". The as-yet-untitled new album will arrive later this year. The band has been posting photos from the studio on their social media outlets.
