The cover song is a big part of many band's repertoire and Shinedown's Brent Smith and Zach Myers recently teamed up to lay down several acoustic covers of their favorite songs. The result is a new EP titled '(ACOUSTIC SESSIONS)' that will be released under the moniker Smith + Myers via iTunes and at all digital retailers on Jan. 28.

Last year's inaugural Monster Energy Aftershock Festival was a single day affair, but it was expanded to two days this year and packed with one of the most powerful lineups we've seen for years. Korn, Megadeth and Shinedown led night one of the fest on Saturday, Sept.14 in Sacramento, Calif., on day one of the extravaganza.
There’s no better way to spend a summer day than with a massive tour such as Carnival of Madness. This year headliners Shinedown brought the madness to the Stone Pony Summerstage in Asbury Park, N.J., to kick off the trek on Aug. 11. Support included heavy hitters Skillet, Sevendust, In This Moment and We As Human.
At the end of May, Shinedown celebrated the 10 year anniversary of their debut disc, ‘Leave a Whisper.’ In a recent exclusive chat with frontman Brent Smith, he talked about rewarding moments throughout the past decade in addition to the evolution of the band that helped make them into who they are today.
A few years ago in 2010, Shinedown lent their collective talents to help usher in a brand new rock tour called Carnival of Madness. Now, in 2013 they are making their return appearance to the COM, hoping to inject some energy back into the brand and reinvent the tour they helped get off the ground.
