Shinedown is back with their first new album since 2018 as Planet Zero marks the seventh studio record from the band. Planet Zero sees Shinedown tackle a variety of issues - societal forces that keep us divided, cancel culture, misinformation, and the negative effects on social media.
Despite the bleakness of the themes found on the record, Shinedown offers a message of hope, perseverance, triumph, and the power of human connection.

Musically, Shinedown took a vastly different path on Planet Zero as the band opted for a stripped down approach when writing and recording the album. In a previous interview with Audacy, frontman Brent Smith said the band focused on "three chords, four guys, and the truth” rather than pushing the layered sounds, vocals, and extra instrumentation that they’ve been known for.
