Shinedown have released a video for their new single Get Up.

The track has been taken from the Florida outfit’s latest album Attention Attention, which launched in May this year via Atlantic Records.

The follow-up to 2015’s Threat To Survival was co-written by vocalist Brent Smith and bassist Eric Bass and was inspired by personal experiences with depression.

Speaking about the Bill Yukich-directed video, Smith tells the Huffington Post: “We didn’t want the video to open up in a dark, dark place. Bill was like, ‘I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to do what everybody thinks we’re going to do, so let’s do something that shows a tremendous amount of heart but also shows a lift.’

“Of course, it’s an emotional video. We wanted to make the video uplifting and not in a cheesy way.”

Smith adds: “We don’t want people to feel ashamed about what they’re going through. You’re not going to be defined by your failures. You’re going to be defined by the fact that you didn’t give up. The song is for the world in a lot of ways.”

Earlier this week, Shinedown announced a UK and European tour, which will follow the band’s planned dates across the US.
