The Jacksonville, FL-based four-piece unleashed their Rob Cavallo-produced fourth studio album, ‘Amaryllis’ earlier this year, playing a handful of album launch dates here, including a packed-to-the-rafters London Roundhouse. A triumphant slot at this year’s Download Festival followed, and now comes your chance to catch the band on a major headline run, commencing this October.
SHINEDOWN bagged a ton of airplay for their ‘Bully’ single, which hit the airwaves this Spring. Check out the video here:
