Shinedown have released the thought-provoking and cinematic music video for lead single "Planet Zero". The video brings to life a glimpse of a dystopian future (complete with a menacing A.I. character named Cyren from the album's interludes who we hear at the end of the music video)that warns of the dangerous dehumanizing consequences of cancel culture run rampant.

On Planet Zero, Shinedown is serving up an incisive look at some of society's most critical issues, including the increasingly toxic division among those of differing ideologies, the need for honesty in our public discourse, and the corrosive effects of social media and cancel culture on mental health and humanity. The "Planet Zero" single rings the alarm with a cautionary warning that if we shut each other down, werisk losing empathy, respect for one another, and our ability to communicate and unify in a way that leads to actual progress and understanding.

"We wanted the first visual of Planet Zero to be unlike anything we have done previously. We chose to work with visionary director Charles De Meyer. We did not want a traditional music video feel - we wanted avant-garde, thought-provoking and surreal. Make no mistake, there is a message in the visual, a warning of what is to come, if society does not wake up, and demand the truth be told. Welcome to PLANET ZERO..." - Brent Smith

Their most ambitious and masterfully realized work to date, Planet Zero is a high-concept, ultra-vivid, viscerally charged saga. A critical yet optimistic look at the fractures and frays of a society that has undergone many challenges in the last few years, the album is part social commentary and part in-depth exploration of the human psyche. Produced by Shinedown's Eric Bass (who also produced the band's 2018 acclaimed album ATTENTION ATTENTION,) and recorded at Bass' newly built Big Animal Studio in South Carolina, Planet Zero matches its immersive world-building and takedown of authoritarianism with a deliberately unvarnished sound, and the album is spliced with interludes featuring Cyren, an insidious and unsettling robot character that appears throughout the Planet Zero journey. While a raw ferocity fuels much of Planet Zero on tracks like "The Saints of Violence and Innuendo," "No Sleep Tonight," and "America Burning," there is also hope, triumph, and reminders that we all need one another on songs like "Daylight," "Dysfunctional You," and "A Symptom of Being Human." After all, it is the band's impassioned striving for unity that has long been at the heart of their creative output and deeply informed the making of Planet Zero. Not only a driving force for their songwriting, their humanitarian outlook led Shinedown to be one of the first artists to fundraise for non-profit humanitarian aid organization Direct Relief in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, raising more than $400,000 with their "Atlas Falls" relief effort. Full Planet Zero tracklist is below.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE ALERT "We've made the difficult decision to move the album release from April 22nd to July 1st due to delays in vinyl production. We want to ensure our fans have FULL access to Planet Zero via every possible medium on the day it comes out!!!" - Much love and WE PROMISE it will be worth the wait! Brent, Zach, Barry, Eric

It seems that many bands that are releasing new albums this year, have the makings of their next one nearly wrapped up. Guessing that when you're creative and have a lot of pandemic downtime, you write. A LOT!  That's the case with Shinedown! Even though we just got the scoop on their new album "Planet Zero", they already have their next offering coming down the line. 

According to singer Brent Smith in a recent interview...
"There's a whole other record written. That's another thing that we're trying to figure out right now, too. We didn't just go in, write these potential songs, and then that was it. We had a whole other section of things. These songs are the most important for right now,"

Planet Zero will be released April 22 and we can see them live here in Columbus the very next night! SATURDAY APR 23 AT THE SCHOTTENSTEIN CENTER: SHINEDOWN, WITH THE PRETTY RECKLESS AND DIAMANTE

'SHINEDOWN NATION... We invite you to experience our most ambitious album to date... Welcome to PLANET ZERO. Listen to the title track out now and pre-save / pre-order our 7th album PLANET ZERO out April 22nd" - Shinedown / Brent, Eric, Zach, Barry

Multi-platinum rock band Shinedown have released their lead single "Planet Zero," the title track from their newly announced seventh studio album out April 22 on Atlantic Records. Planet Zero serves up an incisive look at the issues at hand: cancel culture run rampant, the corrosive effects of social media on mental health and society, and the increasingly toxic division among those of differing ideologies.

Featuring Shinedown's explosive yet artfully crafted sound and urgent lyrics, single "Planet Zero" rings the alarm on a dystopian warning of the dangerous consequences to come when it all goes too far, and we begin to lose our respect for those with differing opinions and our compassion for one another.
 
"If we shut each other down and allow ourselves to be divided by the information we consume and the way we talk to each other, we lose our humanity. When you look outside of your phone, you'll see there are so many people doing good things and trying to take care of each other. But we're starting to see parts of society slip into an unknown. Planet Zero was written for all of us. The fact is that we're all here on this planet no matter what, so it's time to actually move forward together with empathy, perseverance and strength. With that said….welcome to PLANET ZERO." - Brent Smith
