SHINEDOWN To Unveil New Lineup Tonight

May 9, 2008

The Pulse of Radio reports that SHINEDOWN will debut its new lineup tonight (Friday, May 9) at the Equestrian Center in the band's hometown of Jacksonville, Florida. Mainstays Brent Smith on vocals and Barry Kerch on drums will be joined by new guitarists Nick Perri and Zach Myers, along with bass player Eric Bass. Smith told The Pulse of Radio that the new and improved SHINEDOWN is set on proving itself to fans. "We want to give them the most incredible performances night after night, and play as diligently, as hard, as mean, as aggressive, as loving, as caring and as thoughtful as we can to our audience," he said. "We just want the music to speak for itself. I think as long as that happens, then everything will be fine."

SHINEDOWN parted ways with both guitarist Jasin Todd and bassist Brad Stewart in the past year. Todd was arrested for disorderly intoxication in Florida last month.

The band's third album, "The Sound of Madness", arrives in stores on June 24. The deluxe edition of the disc will feature three bonus tracks not available on the standard CD.

SHINEDOWN's immediate touring schedule will consist of headlining shows and festival appearances, with a full-length itinerary due to be announced soon.
