Record-Breaking Lead Single “Planet Zero” Is #1 For Fourth Consecutive Week At Active Rock Radio
Ahead of the April 22nd release of their new album “Planet Zero“, multi-platinum band Shinedown have announced the Planet Zero World Tour (produced by Live Nation), with special guests Jelly Roll and John Harvie, and have also released “The Saints of Violence and Innuendo,” a brand-new song from the forthcoming album.
While lead single “Planet Zero” – Shinedown’s record-breaking 18th #1 – remains in the top spot at Active Rock Radio for the fourth consecutive week, the band has released album track “The Saints of Violence and Innuendo.” The frenetic yet massively catchy track takes on the platforms and institutions that don’t value honesty and instead use half-truths, false narratives and innuendo to push agendas that are often not reflective of the people’s best interest.
“Tell me the truth / Or tell me a lie / Tell me what I’ve gotta say to get out of this room alive
Show me the answers / Or give me a clue / There’s not enough space in the miles between me and you
Oh no / Here we go / Here come the saints of violence and innuendo
So tell me truth / Are you really surprised? / You live in a world where empathy goes to die”
Lyrics from “The Saints of Violence and Innuendo”
“Planet Zero” and “The Saints of Violence and Innuendo” introduce an album that sees Shinedown taking on the forces that keep us divided at a time when we need to be coming together. These songs warn of the dangerous dehumanizing consequences of cancel culture run rampant – if we shut each other down, we risk losing empathy, respect for one another, and our ability to communicate and unify in a way that leads to actual progress and understanding.
Watch, “Planet Zero” below:
The high-concept, ultra-vivid, viscerally charged album was produced by Shinedown’s Eric Bass (who also produced the band’s 2018 acclaimed album “ATTENTION ATTENTION”) and recorded at Bass’ newly built Big Animal Studio in South Carolina.
Shinedown also recently made their “ATTENTION ATTENTION” feature film available worldwide. A stunning visual counterpart to their 2018 acclaimed album of the same name, the film brings to life the album’s narrative about a mental health journey and the resolve of the human spirit, weaving together 14 songs into a provocative and thought-provoking cinematic story that illuminates yet another dimension of Shinedown’s limitless creativity.
