They're really excited about the new material, calling it their best stuff ever, and saying it's "beautifully brutal."

The first single from the album could be in our ears by the end of April!

As soon as we know more about the new Shinedown album, titles, anything, we will let you know!

They're planning touring as well, so lots more Shinedown is coming our way for 2015!
