Shinedown Working on Next Album

(Gibson) As of late, Shinedown have kept busy in Los Angeles, working on their new album. lead guitarist Zach Myers reports the band has about 14 songs written, but they probably won't start hunkering down until late summer. Expect a new album by 2012.

Myers is used to playing arenas packed with 10,000-plus screaming rock fans. But for the month of March, Myers is turning down the volume and embarking on a solo, acoustic tour with fellow singer-songwriter and longtime buddy Chris Allen (Ingram Hill).

The souLLow Acoustic 2011 Tour, which kicked off Thursday in Toledo, Ohio, is totally different from a Shinedown show. For one, Myers and Allen play their own originals, covers and only a few Shinedown songs. "Shinedown is something I love, and I'll be a part of it forever. But I can't sing like [Shinedown lead singer] Brent Smith," Myers said in an interview with Gannett Media. "He's the greatest singer on the earth. I can't do what he does, so I couldn't do some of our songs justice. I'll do a couple of Shinedown songs, but not really the singles. Just the Shinedown songs that are my personal favorites." more on this story
