The uplifting #1 Active Rock and Top 25 Alternative hit, which was heard during the Super Bowl Pregame show, has amassed more than 27 million total streams,galvanizing listeners around the globe with its offer of hope, empathy and encouragement in the face of personal struggles, whatever they may be. Garnering praise fromthe likes of Huffington Post, Salon, Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, Buzzfeed, Parade, Grammy.com, No Depression and more with key playlisting on Spotify and Apple Music, the powerful song speaks to the human spirit in a time of need, something that front man Brent Smith is deeply connected to after battling his own personal demons. “GET UP” became a light in the darkness, born out of Brent watching his friend, Shinedown bassist Eric Bass, deal with clinical depression. When Brent put pen to paper, a beautiful, universal song rooted in Brent and Eric’s raw vulnerability took shape. Reaching far beyond any genre or label, “GET UP”quickly began resonating, soundtracking TODAY‘s look back at 2018, breaking a new record for Shinedown by giving the band the most Rock Airplay Top 10s ever and their 13th #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs Chart (the second most in the history of the chart, tied with Van Halen), and becoming a fan favorite at arena shows on tour where the crowd response is palpable.

Shinedown’s chart-topping album ATTENTION ATTENTIONout now via Atlantic Records, simultaneously hit #1 on Billboard’s Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock Albums Charts and debuted Top 5 on the Billboard 200. The story that unfolds as the album progresses is a poignant and enduring statement about humanity, touching on topics such as overcoming struggles, mental health, not being afraid to fail and the resolve of the human spirit as seen on tracks like “DEVIL,” and the anthemic “THE HUMAN RADIO”. Given the deeply personal nature of the record, Shinedown went in-house for production for the first time ever, enlisting bassist Eric Bass to produce and mix the album in its entirety.
