Shinedown Announce New Album, ‘Threat to Survival’


Story by Cat Badra

Shinedown’s new studio album, ‘Threat to Survival,’ will arrive in September

Shinedown have teased a new album for weeks now, and now, the band as confirmed details on the new set. The rockers’ fifth studio album, “Threat to Survival,” will arrive on Sept. 18.

Frontman Brent Smith describes the album’s title as “that primal instinct in all of us that determines how we respond to crisis and conflict — the idea of ‘fight or flight’ and the choices we make in any given situation.”

“This album represents those deciding moments for us as a band,” Smith added. “It’s a collection of scenarios that made us who we are, and is, by far, the most autobiographical album we’ve created to date.”

“Cut the Cord,” the lead single off “Threat to Survival,” is Shinedown’s ninth song to hit No. 1 on Billboard’s mainstream rock songs chart. Those who pre-order the album on iTunes will score an instant download of “Cut the Cord.”

Shinedown are already on the road this summer, but the band also has plans to set out on a fall 2015 tour with Breaking Benjamin in support of “Threat of Survival.” Find tour dates below.
