Dynamic alt/rock heroes Shinedown are out on the road right now alongside special guests The Pretty Reckless and Diamante, with eyes on an April 22 release for Planet Zero, the band’s seventh studio album.

Shinedown previously previewed the album with a music video for the title track, a cinematic adventure blending science fiction with a narrative warning about the effects of “cancel culture”:

The track made history as Shinedown’s 18th No. 1 track on the rock charts — a testament to the band’s longevity, still going strong more than two decades since its 2001 arrival.

“The Saints of Violence and Innuendo” has also been shared from Planet Zero:

The new record was produced by the band’s Eric Bass, and as a news release details, is rather high-concept:

These songs warn of the dangerous dehumanizing consequences of cancel culture run rampant – if we shut each other down, we risk losing empathy, respect for one another, and our ability to communicate and unify in a way that leads to actual progress and understanding. Planet Zero is an incisive look at some of society’s most critical issues, including the increasingly toxic division among those of differing ideologies, the need for honesty in our public discourse, and the corrosive effects of social media and cancel culture on mental health and humanity. Part social commentary and part in-depth exploration of the human psyche, there is also hope, triumph, and reminders that we all need one another. After all, it is the band’s impassioned striving for unity that has long been at the heart of their creative output.

Shinedown also extended the Planet Zero world Tour into the fall with special guests Jelly Roll and John Harvie. Here’s the updated schedule, with newly added shows in bold:
