Shinedown have announced dates for a 2015 summer tour and have confirmed that they’ll release a new album sometime this year. The band kick off their summer dates in early July and play through mid-August.

In a press release, Shinedown frontman Brent Smith talks about the band's upcoming tour and album. “We have a lot in store for 2015 and beyond," says Smith. "We have been working on our fifth album for the better part of two years, and it is almost complete. That being said, we felt it was time to return to the road to let everyone know that we are 100% back and ready to entertain!"

The group is bringing Nothing More as their openers for many of the dates. As of right now Shinedown have announced 14 tour stops for this summer, but have said they'll be unveiling more shows soon. Check out their current tour schedule below.
