Shinedown EP releasing soon
2014-01-26 by Jack Knapman | 15 Comments

Brent Smith and Zach Myers, the lead vocalist and guitarist for Shinedown respectively, have finally begun the process of releasing their long-delayed EP, "The Covers: Acoustic", by a uploading each individual song per day on their official YouTube channel, before compiling all the tracks into said EP for commercial release.

The conception and announcement of the album dates back almost a year ago when Smith announced on his Twitter feed that he and Myers would be recording an EP containing a varied assortment of acoustic covers, ranging from Metallica to Adelle, as voted by their followers. Since then, the project's release date has undergone a number of delays until now, due to licensing issues with artists, most notably Bon Jovi, who refused to allow the two to cover the track "Wanted Dead or Alive".

'The Covers: Acoustic' is set for commercial release on January 28th, by which point all tracks will be available on YouTube.

Listen to Smith and Myers covering the first track off the album, "London Calling" by The Clash, here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1KtEqMoQ0o

The album will be available for purchase this Tuesday on iTunes - https://itunes.apple.com/wa/album/acoustic-sessions-ep/id797363243?ls=1&iqTagFallback=youtube.com

Sound of Madness had it's moments, although they completely blew away any ground they were gaining when they released Amaryllis
