Shinedown Unveil Forceful New Song ‘Outcast’
We know you're anxious for Shinedown's Threat to Survival album. After all, Loudwire's readers voted it as the September Release of the Month. And while there's only one more week left to wait, Shinedown are further sending their fans into a frenzy by releasing another new song before the release date.
The latest new track to surface is a hard-hitting, forceful new song called "Outcast." "'Outcast' is about confidence. A song to show everyone that Shinedown can stand the test of time and won’t give up," state the group in their posting announcing the release. And with lyrics like, "Don’t you know I broke the mold / Like a hammer to a landmine / You better stick to what you know / ‘Cause I ain’t playing just to rewind," it's clear that Shinedown mean business.
In a recent interview with Full Metal Jackie, frontman Brent Smith stated, "Because I’m the main lyricist in the band, I can only write about what I’m going through and what I know. We held absolutely nothing back on this record, it’s a beautiful record but it’s also very brutal."
We've seen as much so far with the release of the chart-topping single "Cut the Cord" as well as the preview tracks "State of My Head" and "Black Cadillac." All four tracks are now available immediately if you pre-order the Threat to Survival album via iTunes. The disc is also available to pre-order via Amazon.
Look for Shinedown on the road this fall in support of the Threat to Survival album. They're co-headlining dates with Breaking Benjamin, with Sevendust providing support. See their upcoming shows here. And look for Threat to Survival, arriving in stores and online on Sept. 18.
