Shinedown has decided to move the release date of its new album, Planet Zero, to July 1st from the previously announced date next week, April 22nd, 2022. The album is due for release on the bands’ long-time label Atlantic Records. The news of the LP’s delay was shared in a video message on Shinedown’s social media today (Tuesday, April 12). Guitarist Zach Myers said: “As a band, we have decided to sadly push our album from April 22nd to July 1st, and here’s why. Due to delays in physical production of vinyl and CDs, we want everyone to be able to experience ‘Planet Zero’ together as a community, because that’s what ‘Planet Zero’ is about. So pay attention to our e-mail newsletter and we promise you it will be worth the wait. Stay with us. ‘Planet Zero’ is coming; it’s just coming a little later than expected.” The band is also being honored this week at Mohegan Sun Casino and Resort into their Walk of Fame for Performers.
