Jacksonville, FL hard rock outfit Shinedown, known for their energetic performances, will be out on tour all summer, beginning this week and finishing up August 24 in Nampa, ID.

The five-piece band is touring in support of their third album, “The Sound of Madness” (Atlantic), which garnered them the biggest debut of their career, debuting at #8 on the Billboard 200 album chart, and marking the first Top 10 album of the band’s career.

“We put a lot of work into this record,” said lead singer Brent Smith in a statement. “I was determined from the beginning to make an album that people would feel was important to them and the world around them. I know we’ve accomplished that, and it seems that not only our longtime fans, but a lot of new fans, are reacting to what they’re hearing. We’re very thankful for that.”

Produced by multiple Grammy Award-winner Rob Cavallo (Kid Rock, Green Day, My Chemical Romance), “The Sound Of Madness” got off to a monstrous start when its first single, “Devour,” became Shinedown’s eighth consecutive Top 5 hit at rock radio.
