Shinedown at The Mercury Ballroom
Shinedown have built their name on rock songs both brutal in power and epic in scope. This December, Shinedown staples Brent Smith and Zach Meyers are visiting the Mercury Ballroom to deliver an intimate performance of their band’s music. Shinedown’s latest album Threat to Survival, featuring lead single “Cut the Cord” — a blistering track that shot to #1 on Active Rock radio —finds the multi-platinum-selling band achieving their most powerful sound ever and offering up their most important album to date.
Throughout Threat to Survival, Shinedown explore matters of life and death and beauty and pain with a fierce energy and indomitable spirit. On “Cut the Cord” — a song that continues a record-setting streak in which each of the 19 singles released over Shinedown’s career has climbed to the upper regions of the radio charts — the band looks at the insidious nature of self-destruction and puts out a call for self-empowerment.
The emotionally raw material at the heart of the album makes the close, acoustic experience with Brent and Zach even more in-depth and exclusive. On the piano-laced “How Did You Love,” for instance, Smith’s soaring vocals demand an exacting reassessment of how to go about building a more meaningful life.
