Shinedown launch Threat To Survival in September

Shinedown have confirmed their long-awaited fifth album Threat To Survival will be released on September 18.

The 11-track follow-up to 2012’s Amaryllis has been subject to a number of delays – not least because of frontman Brent Smith’s health problems.

The band launched lead track Cut The Cord last month after Smith described the album as a “brutal” work.

Shinedown say: “We can’t thank you enough for your patience. We have poured our entire being into these songs and into this album. We are beyond proud and we believe it’s worth the wait.”

The band are currently touring North America and return to UK in January.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
