Shinedown has been topping mainstream rock charts since their debut album, Leave a Whisper, in 2003. This success continued, peaking with 2008's Sound of Madness, which resulted in the band creating a summer festival tour in 2010 called Carnival of Madness that they have headlined three times thus far. Shinedown has collaborated with a few artists throughout their career, the most frequent of which has been Lzzy Hale of Halestorm. Shinedown singles regularly make appearances on Billboard charts. A few of their songs have made it into the Hot 100, and they have the second-most No. 1 songs on the mainstream rock charts of all time.
Second Chance for Rock Stardom
Brent Smith was first signed to Atlantic Records as the singer for Dreve. The record company was unhappy with Dreve as a whole, so instead of releasing an album, they scrapped the band and kept only Brent Smith who would go on to form Shinedown. Drummer Barry Kerch is the only other remaining original member of Shinedown still with the band today. They released their debut album, Leave a Whisper, in 2003, a highly successful platinum-selling album that included breakthrough singles "45," "Fly From The Inside" and a cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man." Shortly after finishing touring, they released their 2005 album, Us and Them, which the band dedicated to their fans. It had some of their most popular songs yet, including "Save Me," "Heroes" and "I Dare You," which was covered by American Idol contestant Chris Daughtry. Sound of Madness, released three years later in 2008, is what shot Shinedown into the level of stardom they know today. They've continued to remain popular rockers with the release of their next few albums, Amaryllis, Threat to Survival and the most recent album Attention Attention, which released the most recent single, "Monsters," in March 2019.
