SHINEDOWN has announced the release of sixth studio album, Attention Attention on 4th May via Atlantic Records.Directed by Bill Yukich (Beyoncé, Marilyn Manson, Wiz Khalifa), the visual for Devil is a dramatic and visceral introduction to the album.
The 14-track album, SHINEDOWN’s most raw and personal to date, is a mental, emotional and physical journey that follows an individual from life’s lowest lows to the highest highs, as anxieties dissipate and demons disappear. Album opener and lead single Devil sets the stage for what’s to come. The story that unfolds as the album progresses is a powerful statement about the resolve of the human spirit, our will to overcome struggles and the importance of respecting and leaning on one another. On Kill Your Conscience, a snarling refrain is instigated by the pitfalls of social media. Elsewhere, Get Up is an encouraging lyrical ode set to piano that speaks to struggles with depression. The energized distortion of The Human Radio is a rousing call to action to keep fighting together for survival and truth. Album closer Brilliant packs a punch as fears finally evaporate and strength returns.
SHINEDOWN begin a world tour in March in the US. The band hit UK shores this summer, playing a main stage slot on Sunday 10th June at Download Festival.
