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. The band's most recent album, "AMARYLLIS" debuted at #1 on Billboard's "Rock Albums" chart and at #4 overall on the Billboard 200 upon its 2012 release, marking Shinedown's highest chart debut. The RIAA gold certified album spawned three singles that went to #1 on the rock radio charts, continuing a streak of nine consecutives #1's at the format and earning Shinedown the seventeenth chart-topper of their illustrious career. Shinedown's numerous national television appearances include performances on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno andThe Today Show, CBS' The Early Show, among others. In 2009, the band received an American Music Award nomination for "Best Alternative Rock Band." Shinedown has already begun work on the highly anticipated follow-up to "AMARYLLIS" and the as-yet-untitled album will be released in 2015.
