Shinedown will be releasing their new album “Planet Zero” on April 22nd. You can pre-order it here. The new single from the record is The Saints Of Violence And Innuendo. The song continues in their theme of a troublesome society. The opening verse sets the tone;
“Not a hostage, not a stakeout Not a thing wrong except your cut throat So get your hands up before the boat sinks ‘Cause this ain’t one for all, yeah this is groupthink”
It’s refreshing to see a band like this take on such controversial issue and not waiver their perspective. It’s important to address these issues and get them out to the public. Music is a great way to day that. The track is outstanding. Brent Smith delivers the lyrics is a passionate way and that’s the whole point. You need to mean it. There is a point in the middle of the song that Smith belts out a scream that is amazing and that alone is a reason to listen to this single. After that music steps it up a notch and you’re bobbing your head. Accompanying the song is an animated lyric video. Check it out below.
