The 2012 Avalanche Tour celebrates Shinedown’s new album, ‘Amaryllis’, which arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on March 27th. The album’s first single is ‘Bully’, which is available now.

“I’ve always seen Shinedown as its own entity,” says Shinedown frontman Brent Smith, “this living thing that’s been growing and developing and evolving over the past 10 years. During the recording, the vision of what Shinedown is and where it’s going became completely clear. ‘Amaryllis’ is the manifestation of that vision, the centerpiece of what Shinedown is. It reflects on everything we’ve done and where we’re heading. It’s a message of empowerment, perseverance, and inspiration that I think speaks to fans that have been with us since the beginning as well as those who are just learning about who we are and what we’re about. I can’t wait for the world to hear it.”
