Shinedown has just deleted all the other posts on their Instagram, and then posted a video of a very cryptic alphabet with the caption "So it begins… 😈 #nowiknowmyabcs… Do you?" There doesn't seem to be anything to do with this new information yet, though they do seem to have a story going that only features the letter Z right now.
What we do know is that Shinedown began working on a new record in February 2021. Shinedown vocalist Brent Smith also said to WSOU 89.5 FM back in August regarding new music "I can tell you right now the first single, you're gonna hear it in the first month of 2022. And then hopefully a couple of months later, there'll be a [new album] out." So stay tuned!
The new Shinedown record will be their first since Attention Attention in 2018.
