Known worldwide for their unparalleled streak of hits, Shinedown is without question one of the most successful rock bands of the 21st century. The multiplatinum group’s forthcoming fifth studio album Threat to Survival arrives September 18 and features the chart-topping, lead single “Cut The Cord,” which stands tall at #1 on the Active Rock radio chart for its third consecutive week. The band’s unmatched ascendancy over multi-format rock radio commenced with their 2003 debut Leave a Whisper and the 2005 follow-up, Us and Them. Together, both albums yielded seven consecutive top 5 radio hits, including the #1 blockbuster, “Save Me.” Released in 2008, The Sound of Madness proved to be Shinedown’s mainstream breakthrough, debuting at #8 on the Billboard 200 before spending 120 consecutive weeks on the chart. The album made rock history, with each of its six singles reaching #1 on the airplay rankings, including the double-platinum certified crossover smash, “Second Chance,” which also went to #1 on the Hot AC chart and top 3 at Top 40. Amaryllis followed in 2012 and immediately entered Billboard’s Rock Albums chart at #1 while also coming in at #4 on the overall Billboard 200 - the multi-platinum group's biggest chart debut thus far. The album spawned a trio of massive hits in “Bully,” “Unity,” and “Enemies,” all of which reached #1 at Active Rock radio, bringing Shinedown’s tally of consecutive chart-toppers at the format to an amazing nine and counting. In addition, two additional singles from Amaryllis – “I’ll Follow You” and “Adrenaline” – both reached the top five at Rock radio, furthering Shinedown’s extraordinary streak of top-charting singles. Hailed by fans as an explosive and exciting live act, Shinedown have toured hard throughout their career, including countless headline treks and high profile festival appearances. In 2009, Shinedown received an American Music Award nomination for “Best Alternative Rock Band.”
