SHINEDOWN: Video Interview With BARRY KERCH Available

The "Dex at Night" show on 93.3 The Planet (WTPT) in Greenville, South Carolina recently conducted an interview with drummer Barry Kerch of the Jacksonville, Florida-based hard rock/post-grunge band SHINEDOWN. Watch the five-minute chat below.

SHINEDOWN will headline a stretch of late summer dates beginning on August 25 in Sparks, Nevada, as the band supports its recently released third album, "The Sound of Madness". Joining the group on this trek will be RED and JET BLACK STARE.

"The Sound of Madness" debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard album chart earlier this month with first-week sales of 50,000, the group's best numbers yet.

The Pulse of Radio asked SHINEDOWN singer Brent Smith how introducing the new material to audiences has gone so far. "For us, we're excited to play it, because that's what you wanna get — you wanna have whatever that emotion is when you go back and you think about when you wrote it, and how special that was when you nailed it, and then you just want to continue to do that every single night," he said. "So in all honesty, the most exciting thing about what's going on right now is playing the new material. So for us, it's awesome, and so far we've had nothing but just insane reactions for the new material."
