Shinedown continues push behind "Amaryllis"
Florida rockers Shinedown have added more dates to their extensive tour of the U.S. in continued support of their March effort, "Amaryllis."
The four-piece rock outfit kicked off the second leg of the road trip earlier this week and continue with a performance tonight (7/31) in Casper, WY. The two-month trek crisscrosses the nation, working its way to the East Coast by late August and returning to the western U.S. in mid-September. Thirty-three stops remain before the Sept. 30 conclusion in Albuquerque, NM.
Tickets for the outing, including late fall international shows, are available now via the band's website.
Shinedown released "Amaryllis," the band's fourth studio effort, in March. The outfit worked with producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance) on the set, which follows the 2008 Cavallo-produced album "The Sound of Madness." The spring album debuted at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 and peaked at the top of the magazine's Alternative Albums, Hard Rock Albums and Rock Albums charts.
In a recent interview with SoundSpike, Shinedown multi-instrumentalist Eric Bass explained how the group seems to be hitting a wider demographic these days.
"I guess our approach to songwriting is a little different," Bass said. "We like to write universal songs -- not for any particular purpose. It's what we want to do. We want to reach people. I think, lyrically, the songs are reaching more people, reaching a wider audience. We're growing up. We're getting older. The songs are maturing as well."
