Shinedown interview

You find yourself immediately trusting Smith without question. The ones that were more balladesque, the ones that were more mid-tempo, we focused a lot on melody. We are there to open, warm them up and get them ready. I think presenting an album is probably what stands out more than anything. The ability to just open up and talk about something publicly that I kept close for so long has been key.

Brent Smith from Shinedown interview with LA Lloyd

Long story short, that band didn't work out and we were dropped. I was going through some heavy stuff when that song was released. That was the writing, the recording, everything, and then it was in stores. It took about four and a half hours. It was a lot of work.

Complete tour dates can be found at. We want to go and push ourselves as far as we possibly can. You seem open to trying to unproven things as a band. I find it very inspiring how much music has a true purpose behind it right now, especially in rock. There is so much stuff that you can do on our web site.

Interview with BRENT SMITH of SHINEDOWN

I think Axl Rose helped me out a lot with the high notes. It gave us a lot of perspective. I think people sense the genuineness of the message, and they gravitate to it. Eric is far more than just a bass player; he is a multifaceted musician, singer, songwriter, producer and engineer so he took on the duties of producing the first single off the album which is Cut The Cord. I don't mean to keep going back to that, but that's what has been instilled in me from day one at Atlantic: the songs have to be great or none of the other stuff matters. We played early in the day and we had a trailer that had a door in between and two doors on both sides. So far, it seems to have been embraced quite well.

INTERVIEW: Shinedown vocalist Brent Smith

What is the artistic process and intent behind that? Shinedown singer Brent Smith spoke in an interview with Linea Rock and revealed his thoughts on recent passing of Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott. But all of our families understand that this band provides for our families. We looked at everything from a very international standpoint. If you truly believe that, a bit of your sole has been lost. We paced ourselves really well. I think it was a few years back. If I were to go into a bar and have one drink I would end up drinking every single one in the building and probably wind up in jail.

Songwriting and Second Chances with Brent Smith of Shinedown

Once I figured out that this album was a story, I had to be very careful with, at least in my opinion, who I talked about. But, it took me about seven days to finally walk in and sing Eric the lyrics and the melody to Get Up. We actually played on the Marines 231st Birthday in Fallujah. The whole record is about everyone in the band. Leave a Whisper was a long process and a lifetime to get there. He lays out a new perspective that encourages men to break out of the scarcity mentality and be ok with women chasing you. This August the band will embark on their 2nd headlining appearance on Carnival Of Madness.

Shinedown's Brent Smith Reveals His Thoughts About Vinnie Paul

So any time we get a chance to do acoustically we enjoy it. I hope in the future now, which is very soon, whoever the new President of the United States is they understand what is truly going on. I think the way that they did it when I saw the trailer for the new season, I thought they did a great job for it. He has kind of a thing with Michael Myers. I think the focus of that was to really expand on the fact that you wanted the listener to go on the emotional roller coaster ride. Because I was watching the demise of this band and it is the last thing that I will ever allow this band to have happen to and I will not let this band die. Our web site is extremely interactive right now.

The tour was created by Bill Mcgathy our manager, who is just a brilliant mind. Hi Brent how are you today? We did 44 days with Iron Maiden in April of last year, we toured in July and did a few festivals before me and Zach went out. I think how my success is determined is by how much time I can give to my son. I used to be really into writing in riddles and metaphors but on Amaryllis I feel like I was really straight forward on that record, more so than the previous 3. Photo by Audio Ink Radio.

The journey for this person is them trying to find their humanity again. Emotionally we just let ourselves soar, we put it in the record. We go out there every night; we are very well rehearsed and we are ready to do what we came here to do. It would have been awesome to do something like that. We came here to do what we do and we are having a great time so far. The ladies in our lives, those women are extraordinary because they really understand it and they get it. They reach out with welcomed force and completely grab your attention.
