The guys from Shinedown are excited about their new album, ATTENTION ATTENTION, because on it, they were able to express many thoughts, feelings, and experiences on a single record that had previously gone unexpressed. "All of these songs are connected to each other, so we had to start it off with the listeners hearing that they were going to be taken into an environment," says frontman Brent Smith on the album's opening track, "The Entrance."
Guitarist Zach Myers adds, "It is 100% a concept album. 100% a story"--a story the guys from Shinedown intend on telling by taking listeners on a track-by-track musical journey, starting at the deepest, darkest parts of their hearts, passing through all kinds of hell to confront their inner-demons, only to bring them into a place full of hope and promise in the end.
