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).

Their discography includes 2002's Saturate, 2004's We Are Not Alone, 2006's Phobia, and 2009's Dear Agony.

About Nothing More
There are a lot of bands who claim to wear their hearts on their sleeves, but for Texan quartet Nothing More that sentiment could scarcely be more literal. "When we first started, we branded ourselves on the arm after each year of touring, so we've all got these scars now, reminding us of the commitment we made to each other," confides frontman Jonny Hawkins. To say that this is a band who are dedicated to their cause would be to understate the case somewhat.
Hailing from San Antonio, Nothing More is a four-headed musical hydra that runs on frenetic passion, unswerving DIY spirit and relentless sonic experimentation. Part schizoid System Of A Down weird-isms, part Mars Volta-esque prog rock freak out, part effortless pop nous, they seamlessly barrel from churning headbang to skyscraping chorus and back again in the blink of an eye. Capable of bombastic bounce that hits as hard as an uppercut to the jaw when they fancy it, the boys from The Alamo City are equally able to dial down their bluster into deft moments of crystalline beauty when the mood takes them. It's a gut-punching blend made all the more powerful by a keen lyrical sophistication and philosophical undertone which both belies their years and marks them out from their contemporaries.
Forming initially as Middle school kids whose aspirations were as serious then as they are now, Nothing More's early development took place against a backdrop of suburban boredom and rabid musical obsession. Having tasted the addictive elixir of rock ‘n' roll the band realized they were at a crossroads when they reached college age. "Everyone was telling us to stay in school," admits Hawkins "but for us that would have been settling. Having a plan B is a recipe for failure. We decided that we had to ignore everyone's advice and totally dedicate ourselves to being in this band."
And dedicate themselves they did. From fixing up their first tour van out of a derelict, raccoon infested RV to making their own stage rigs for their impassioned live show, the quartet literally built everything they have from the ground up. Those first tours, the ones that wrought the aforementioned scars, were formative in more ways than one. As the four young men saw and experienced more of the world, their spiritual and philosophical outlook began to evolve. "That period of growth was a real struggle for us individually and collectively," confirms Hawkins "but it made us a lot more open to other ideas and gave us a deeper faith in our own instincts. I think that reflects in our music."
