Review: Shinedown, Attention Attention: get ready for some festival anthems!

Shinedown, Aftershock 2013
Shinedown, Aftershock Festival
Shinedown's latest album, Attention Attention, was released a couple of days ago, and it's full of hard-rocking-festival anthems. Ranging from the wonderfully-bass Black Soul to the almost-pop-chart-ready title track, Attention Attention runs through the entire range of hard rock, and is going to be mandatory listening for anyone planning to see them at one or more of this summer's festivals.

It's the perfect workout album; listen to it at the gym or on a fast walk, and you'll burn a few more calories.

Devil, taken from Attention Attention, is the latest single from Shinedown:

Get Up might just be this year's festival anthem...

I wonder if this year's festival set will include wonderful, over-the-top pyromania like we saw at Aftershock 2013, when Shinedown's visuals made everyone gasp, or the more toned-down-preppy-but-still-burning version we saw in 2015? Wait and see, wait and see...

You can see Shinedown tour dates here, including dates with Five Finger Death Punch earlier in the year and Godsmack later in the sumer in the USA, and at festivals including Download festival, Castle Donnington, in the UK, Rock am Ring and Rock im Park in Germany, Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium, Download Madrid in Spain, and then, in October, at Aftershock in Sacramento, California.

You can listen to Attention Attention here on the Shinedown official YouTube channel, then go and buy Attention Attention through your usual music supplier.
