ABOUT SHINEDOWN
Known worldwide for their unparalleled streak of hits, Shinedown is without question one of the most successful rock bands of the 21st century. The multiplatinum group's forthcoming 5th studio album "THREAT TO SURVIVAL" arrives September 18th and features the chart-topping, lead single "Cut The Cord," which stands tall at #1 on the Active Rock radio chart for its 3rd consecutive week. The band's unmatched ascendancy over multi-format rock radio commenced with their 2003 debut "LEAVE A WHISPER" and the 2005 follow-up, "US AND THEM." Together, both albums yielded seven consecutive top 5 radio hits, including the #1 blockbuster, "Save Me." Released in 2008, "THE SOUND OF MADNESS" proved to be Shinedown's mainstream breakthrough, debuting at #8 on the Billboard 200 before spending 120 consecutive weeks on the chart. The album made rock history, with each of its six singles reaching #1 on the airplay rankings, including the double-platinum certified crossover smash, "Second Chance," which also went to #1 on the Hot AC chart and top 3 at Top 40. "AMARYLLIS" followed in 2012 and immediately entered Billboard's "Rock Albums" chart at #1 while also coming in at #4 on the overall Billboard 200 -- the multi-platinum group's biggest chart debut thus far. The album spawned a trio of massive hits in "Bully," "Unity," and "Enemies," all of which reached #1 at Active Rock radio, bringing Shinedown's tally of consecutive chart-toppers at the format to an amazing nine and counting. In addition, two additional singles from "AMARYLLIS" -- "I'll Follow You" and "Adrenaline" -- both reached the top 5 at Rock radio, furthering Shinedown's extraordinary streak of top-charting singles. Hailed by fans as an explosive and exciting live act, Shinedown have toured hard throughout their career, including countless headline treks and high profile festival appearances. In addition, the band's numerous national television appearances include performances on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and TODAY, CBS' The Early Show, and TBS' Conan, among others. In 2009, Shinedown received an American Music Award nomination for "Best Alternative Rock Band." Shinedown is: Brent Smith (vocals), Barry Kerch (drums), Zach Myers (guitars), and Eric Bass (bass). For further news and information, please visit www.shinedown.com.

Their discography includes 2002's Saturate, 2004's We Are Not Alone, 2006's Phobia, and 2009's Dear Agony. The second two -- We Are Not Alone and Phobia -- yielded spectacular results with each being certified Platinum. We Are Not Alone spawned a pair of No. 1 radio hits ("So Cold" and "Sooner Or Later") and sold 2.3 million units (albums and digital tracks). Phobia debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Top 200, hit No. 1 on the Rock Album Chart and was one of the top 50 selling rock albums of 2006. It featured one No. 1 and two Top 5 rock radio hits ("Breath," "Diary of Jane" and "Until The End") and sold 2.8 million units (albums and digital tracks). 2009's Dear Agony debuted #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart on one of the busiest release days of the year and #1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart. Dear Agony also spun off the platinum selling and #1 song Active Rock single "I Will Not Bow" where it stayed #1 for five weeks straight while the album itself was certified Gold, selling over 500K copies. Known for their incendiary live performances, Breaking Benjamin returned to the road earlier this year with a sold out club tour, U.S. headline dates and performances at this year's biggest rock festivals including Rock on the Range, Carolina Rebellion and Rocklahoma!
