SHINEDOWN NABS 4th GOLD ALBUM FOR ‘AMARYLLIS’
Shinedown just notched its fourth gold album in a row — indicating sales of more than 500,000 copies — for 2012’s Amaryllis. All four Shinedown albums are now either gold or platinum (sales of one million).
Frontman Brent Smith said in a statement, “Going gold on Amaryllis is a true testament to our ‘family’ of fans. In a time where music and the music industry is an ever-changing enigma, we as artists and performers must always remember that there is only one boss that we all truly answer to . . . and it’s everyone out in the audience. We are honored beyond belief to have such an amazing fanbase to get us to the next chapter.”
Shinedown is already at work on its next studio album, and is also making a feature film to accompany it.
