Chris Epting of AOL's Noisecreep recently conducted an interview with SHINEDOWN frontman Brent Smith. You can now watch the chat below.SHINEDOWN only just released its fourth album, "Amaryllis", earlier this year, but Brent Smith told NME TV in a new interview that he has a surprise for fans. Smith revealed, "I've thought about new material. It's funny because — and you're actually the very first person I'll tell this too — we've actually, we have another record of material. It's actually recorded."
While not giving any details on what the album is called or when it might surface, Smith said about the music, "It's still very massive. It has a very epic feel to it, but the tempos are a little slower and the subject matter is a little different. I would say it's actually a bit darker — a little bit more mischievous." Smith also did not indicate whether the new disc was recorded at the same time as "Amaryllis" — which is quite possible since that set took 14 months to complete. SHINEDOWN will head out on the road with THREE DAYS GRACE and special guests P.O.D. beginning on February 1 in Moline, Illinois. "Amaryllis", which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard album chart, has produced the hit singles "Bully", "Unity" and "Enemies".
