“The stomping heavy rock track (‘Planet Zero’) gives context and focus for the entire album – a high-concept treatise on societal affairs during the past 22 months, including the travails of living through a pandemic, the pitfalls of social media, mental health issues, political divisiveness, partisan media and cancel culture.” – Billboard

 

“[‘Planet Zero’] is a hard-hitting, full-on rock experience…with a blatant warning—lose connection and lose humanity.” – Parade

 

“‘Planet Zero’ ravages sound waves and inspires thoughts. It’s a great blend of art and attitude.”–

American Songwriter

 

“Shinedown’s songs are always socially relevant and ‘Planet Zero’ is no exception…they are back with more powerful messaging about humanity…”  – Spectrum News

Tell me the truth / Or tell me a lie / Tell me what I’ve gotta say to get out of this room alive 

Show me the answers / Or give me a clue / There’s not enough space in the miles between me and you 

Oh no / Here we go / Here come the saints of violence and innuendo 

So tell me truth / Are you really surprised? / You live in a world where empathy goes to die” –

Lyrics from “The Saints of Violence and Innuendo”

 

“Planet Zero” (PRESS HERE to watch the new music video) and “The Saints of Violence and Innuendo” introduce an album that sees Shinedown taking on the forces that keep us divided at a time when we need to be coming together. These songs warn of the dangerous dehumanizing consequences of cancel culture run rampantif we shut each other down, we risk losing empathy, respect for one another, and our ability to communicate and unify in a way that leads to actual progress and understanding. Planet Zero is an incisive look at some of society’s most critical issues, including the increasingly toxic division among those of differing ideologies, the need for honesty in our public discourse, and the corrosive effects of social media and cancel culture on mental health and humanity. Part social commentary and part in-depth exploration of the human psyche, there is also hope, triumph, and reminders that we all need one another. After all, it is the band’s impassioned striving for unity that has long been at the heart of their creative output.

The high-concept, ultra-vivid, viscerally charged album was produced by Shinedown’s Eric Bass (who also produced the band’s 2018 acclaimed album ATTENTION ATTENTION,) and recorded at Bass’ newly built Big Animal Studio in South Carolina.

Shinedown also recently made their ATTENTION ATTENTION feature film available worldwide. A stunning visual counterpart to their 2018 acclaimed album of the same name, the film brings to life the album’s narrative about a mental health journey and the resolve of the human spirit, weaving together 14 songs into a provocative and thought-provoking cinematic story that illuminates yet another dimension of Shinedown’s limitless creativity. PRESS HERE to watch the trailer. The film, directed by Bill Yukich(Beyoncé, Metallica, Wiz Khalifa) is now available to rent and purchase worldwide on Vimeo and is available on iTunes in select territories. It is also available ondigital and cable VODin the U.S. and Canada, and on Blu-ray and DVD – PRESS HERE to purchase and watch.
