Shinedown Earns Fourth Consecutive Gold Certification; Multiplatinum Rock Band's Latest Album "AMARYLLIS" Continues Impressive Streak of Gold and Platinum Certified Releases

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 2014) - Atlantic recording group Shinedown continues to make rock history as their latest studio album, "AMARYLLIS," has been Gold-certified by the RIAA for sales in excess of 500,000 units. With this latest certification, all four studio albums released by the multiplatinum rock band have been certified Gold and/or Platinum. 

"Going gold on Amaryllis is a true testament to our 'family' of fans," says Shinedown frontman Brent Smith. "In a time where music and the music industry is an ever-changing enigma, we as artists and performers must always remember that there is only one boss that we all truly answer to... and it's everyone out in the audience. We are honored beyond belief to have such an amazing fanbase to get us to the next chapter."

In celebration of the gold certification and as a thank you to their fans, the band has a wide variety of special offers available now at the official Shinedown webstore. For details, please visit http://store.shinedown.com/

"AMARYLLIS" debuted at #1 on Billboard's "Rock Albums" chart and at #4 overall on the Billboard 200 upon its release, marking Shinedown's highest chart debut. Singles "Bully," "Unity," and "Enemies" all went to #1 on the rock radio charts, continuing a streak of nine consecutive #1's at the format and earning Shinedown the seventeenth chart-topper of their illustrious career. "AMARYLLIS" also featured hit singles "I'll Follow You" and "Adrenaline" which continues their record-setting streak in which every one of the band's eighteen singles over their decade-plus career have reached the top 5 of the Rock radio charts -- a feat that no other rock band has achieved.

Shinedown has already begun work on the highly anticipated follow-up to "AMARYLLIS." The band has also teamed with longtime collaborator Darren Doane -- who directed the band's companion music videos for singles "Devour," "Sound Of Madness," "Bully," "Enemies," and "I'll Follow You" -- on a full-length feature film to accompany the as-yet-untitled album's 2015 release.

Shinedown is indisputably one of the most successful rock bands of the past 10 years, enjoying an unparalleled streak of hits. The band's unprecedented ascendancy over multi-format rock radio commenced with their RIAA platinum certified 2003 debut "LEAVE A WHISPER" and its gold certified 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 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. Shinedown's numerous national television appearances include performances on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Today Show, CBS' The Early Show, among others. In 2009, the band received an American Music Award nomination for "Best Alternative Rock Band."
