New Music: Shinedown ‘Planet Zero’

As promised, it’s January and Shinedown is bringing some heavy new rock.

With touches of AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne, and Rage Against The Machine, “Planet Zero” is a methodical and pummelling stomper of a track. Take a listen and let us know what you think.

Here’s what frontman Brent Smith had to say about the forthcoming album.

“If we shut each other down and allow ourselves to be divided by the information we consume and the way we talk to each other, we lose our humanity. When you look outside of your phone, you’ll see there are so many people doing good things and trying to take care of each other. But we’re starting to see parts of society slip into an unknown. ‘Planet Zero’ was written for all of us. The fact is that we’re all here on this planet no matter what, so it’s time to actually move forward together with empathy, perseverance and strength. With that said… welcome to PLANET ZERO.”

Blabbermouth

The album Planet Zero drops April 22.
