“At it’s core, ‘GET UP’ deals with empathy. Smith’s lyrics reflect a shared experience…pain can be a universal human experience and that sense of unconditional support and solidarity is the driving factor behind the song…” – Salon
“Emotional and personal…cinematic and nuanced…’GET UP’ which began as a song written for a friend and bandmate, is now bringing its inspiring message to millions of listeners.” – HuffPost
“…[ATTENTION ATTENTION is] a deeply confessional brilliant piece of work…most rock bands don’t possess what Shinedown does — unfathomable talent, an unwavering fan base and unbridled tenacity.” – Buzzfeed
“Shinedown have a knack for crafting rock anthems…” – Consequence of Sound
“…conviction, authenticity, and real life intensity. Brent Smith and Shinedown are familiar purveyors of all those artistic qualities.” – No Depression

PRESS HERE to watch Shinedown’s new video for their anthemic single “GET UP,” a collection of behind-the-scenes moments on tour and live footage from the road that gives an inside look into the powerful moments that “GET UP” is fostering between Shinedown and their fans. The uplifting #1 Active Rock and Top 25 Alternative hit has amassed more than 27 million total streams, galvanizing listeners around the globe with its offer of hope, empathy and encouragement in the face of personal struggles, whatever they may be. PRESS HEREto watch Shinedown’s recent performance of “GET UP” on Live with Kelly and Ryan. Garnering praise from the likes of Huffington Post, Salon, Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, Buzzfeed, Parade, Grammy.com, No Depression and more with key playlisting on Spotify and Apple Music, the powerful song speaks to the human spirit in a time of need, something that front man Brent Smith is deeply connected to after battling his own personal demons. “GET UP” became a light in the darkness, born out of Brent watching his friend,Shinedown bassist Eric Bass, deal with clinical depression. When Brent put pen to paper, a beautiful, universal song rooted in Brent and Eric’s raw vulnerability took shape. Reaching far beyond any genre or label, “GET UP” quickly began resonating, soundtracking TODAY’s look back at 2018, breaking a new record for Shinedown by giving the band the most Rock Airplay Top 10s ever and their 13th #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs Chart (the second most in the history of the chart, tied with Van Halen), and becoming a fan favorite at arena shows on tour where the crowd response is palpable.
Additionally, Shinedown has been nominated for two iHeart Radio Music Awards including Rock Song of the Year for #1 Active Rock hit “DEVIL” and Rock Artist of the Year.
Shinedown’s chart-topping album ATTENTION ATTENTION (PRESS HERE to listen), out now via Atlantic Records, simultaneously hit #1 on Billboard’s Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock Albums Charts and debuted Top 5 on the Billboard 200. The story that unfolds as the album progresses is a poignant and enduring statement about humanity, touching on topics such as overcoming struggles, mental health, not being afraid to fail and the resolve of the human spirit as seen on tracks like “DEVIL,” and the anthemic “THE HUMAN RADIO”. Given the deeply personal nature of the record, Shinedown went in-house for production for the first time ever, enlisting bassist Eric Bass to produce and mix the album in its entirety.
Shinedown – Brent Smith [vocals], Zach Myers [guitar], Eric Bass [bass, production], and Barry Kerch [drums] – has sold more than10 million albums and 10 million singles worldwide, has 11 platinum and gold singles and four platinum and gold albums, and 14 #1 active rock hits, and more than 1.5 billion total overall streams to date. Each of Shinedown’s 24 charting singles on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs Chart has reached the top five – an unparalleled feat.
