“Tell me the truth/ Or tell me a lie/ Tell me what I’ve gotta say to get out of this room aliveShow 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” (SEE BELOW) 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 songswarnof the dangerous dehumanizing consequences of cancel culture run rampant-if we shut each other down, werisk losing empathy, respect for one another, andour ability to communicate and unify in a way that leads to actual progress and understanding.Planet Zerois 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. Partsocial commentaryand part in-depthexploration of the human psyche,there is also hope, triumph, and reminders that we all need one another.After all, it is the band’simpassionedstriving for unitythathas long been at the heart of their creative output.

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