Shinedown and Three Days Grace Team Up for Tour Dates

By November 19, 2012

Follow me on:

In March, Shinedown released Amaryllis, a fine collection that has produced several hit singles, including "Unity" and "Bully." Almost a full year after putting out the record, the band will return to the road for a quick jaunt across the U.S. in February -- and they'll be bringing Three Days Grace along with them. The Canadian outfit recently unveiled Transit of Venus, and the single "Chalk Outline" has been well received on rock radio. These dates are being described as a co-headlining tour, with P.O.D. serving as the opening act.

But although Shinedown are going to be doing more touring in the early part of 2013, it sounds like there's a decent chance we'll hear new music from the band sooner rather than later. It took four years between The Sound of Madness and Amaryllis, but frontman Brent Smith revealed to NME, "We've actually done another record of material. It's actually recorded." As for the direction of the new songs, Smith said, "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." I wonder if there's any chance Shinedown will debut this material during these February shows.
