Shinedown releases first teaser video for seventh studio album

BROKEN released a short teaser video for the group’s seventh studio album.

The 42-second clip, which can be seen below, was accompanied by the message: “So it starts … # nowiknowmyabcs… How about you? # SD7”.

Last month, BROKEN a singer Brent Smith 95.9 The rat‘s Carl Crafts on the more ‘stripped down’ approach of the new LP: “We wanted to put it all on the line. And what I mean by that is we’ve proven that we can make these records that there is a lot of musicality involved, and we’ve layered our records over the years because we love the music and we love the sound and we try to make some really cinematic records. So with that you have a lot of instruments that aren’t only drums, bass, guitar and vocals – we use orchestras, we use a lot of synths, we use a lot of techniques that… we don’t believe in… don’t tie your hands when making a record . Make whatever record you want to make. And ultimately, though, what we wanted to do with this album was make it as fierce as the other records but not use as much of the style that we’ve done in the past with it. the superposition on and layering guitars, adding a lot of synths, stacking vocals. “

He continued: “I am from Freddie mercury school when it comes to vocals, layering, backgrounds and things of that nature because I try – I say ‘try’ – to try to use my voice as an instrument. But it’s really less is more. So the majority of this record is authentically drums, bass, guitar. The are piano songs; there are two really, really very intense piano songs that are going to be in BROKEN Seven. But we wanted to make a real rock record, we wanted to make a real record where we just focus on making sure the band is heard the way the band needs to be heard. So not a lot of overlays. This does not mean that it is less powerful; it’s just that we don’t have a lot of stacks. We just put things left to right in stereo, pushing everything forward. The vocals aren’t layered – not a lot of effect on the vocals, so not a lot of delays and reverbs and things like that. A lot of the vocals on the record are dry and a bit tight in your face. “

Black-smith also talked about the lyrical themes covered on the new BROKEN album, claiming they were inspired at least in part by the ongoing pandemic and the resulting impact on the community, residents and businesses.

“Going through everything the world went through last year, and we wrote the majority of the record last year, and this year we couldn’t close our eyes to everything that was going on,” a- he declared. “And we’re talking on this record, and we’re speaking on this record – we’re not trying to dance around certain topics. We’re trying to be very honest and very real. In a lot of ways, it’s a very humanitarian issue. registration.”

Ask if BROKEN is going to “piss people off” with some of the lyrical positions that are taken on the next LP, Black-smith said: “Maybe. But the problem is, I don’t necessarily think it’s about pissing people off; it’s about understanding what we’ve all been through but where we need to go. now. I think it gets lost. It’s never meant to be on … And I say this because I’m very, very bold and very honest about it. This country, it’s not called the Divided States of America; it’s called the United States of America, and we want people to understand that it is up to people; it is up to us. And we are able not only to work with each other, to grow with each other. But when you have some people in power who don’t have your best interests in mind, you have to stand up and make your voice heard. When I see what’s going on with regard to freedom of movement. expression of people and that it’s censored and people are pushed into a corner because of their opinions and everything. ez be able to have conversations with each other in order to get real action to happen for positive change. “

Regarding the first single from BROKENthe seventh album by, due out later this month, Brent said, “It honestly tackles everything the company has handled from a planetary platform, if you will – not just here in the US, but around the world – what the past 18 months have been like. , and, at least in our opinion, how we should move forward.

“Look, the record… We’re talking about things we’ve never talked about before,” he revealed. “We open the conversation on different topics that BROKEN never addressed. We have the full support of our label, our management and hopefully our fans, whether they’ve been here from day one or just finding out who we are. But it’s a record that I think some people will find controversial, I think some people will find very provocative, especially for BROKEN, but it’s also something that we think is very important and necessary… Don’t get me wrong either, there is a lot of triumph on this record, but there is also a lot to have to take step back and go, ‘What’s really going on? And how can we prevent that from happening if it is going to be something negative for the human race as a whole? Our society, the way we live with each other, we share this planet with many different organisms and creatures. It’s not just about us. It’s important that everyone really takes a step back and not always. We have to work together – like, all from U.S; we have really we have to start working together and really creating a positive change not only for society but also for this beautiful planet that has been given to us. “

The sequel to 2018 “Warning warning”, which is tentatively due this spring, was recorded in part at a new studio in Charleston, South Carolina, run by the group’s bassist and producer. Eric Bass.
