SHINEDOWN SHARES VIDEO FOR 'THE HUMAN RADIO'

Shinedown has released a video for the new song “The Human Radio,” taken from the band’s sixth studio album Attention Attention. The new clip starts with images of a mysterious woman, the band members and a naked figure from the back, all reflected in a watery shimmer. As the band performs under spotlights in a large room, the clip depicts a row of young adults walking in a line like sheep, smartphones in hand and headphones inserted in their ears. Meanwhile, the mysterious woman wanders through various settings until she reaches an epiphany of her own.

  • The clip is in line with the overall theme of Attention Attention, a concept album which addresses a society both enabled and blinded by technology and the decline and rise of an individual in that society.
  • Frontman Brent Smith said, "In a lot of ways, Attention Attention is a warning to people and society. Don't lose your human side. Technology is great, but don't lose the fact that you are a human being."
  • The new disc is due out May 4th and "The Human Radio" follows the first single and video from the LP, "Devil."
  • Shinedown is currently on a headlining tour with support from In This Moment that next stops in Modesto, California on Monday night (April 9th). Co-headlining runs with Five Finger Death Punch and Godsmack are on tap for this spring and summer.

LITA FORD ANNOUNCES JULY 4th SINGLE, LAUNCHING GUITAR COMPANY

30 years after scoring her biggest solo hit, "Kiss Me Deadly," Lita Ford is busier than ever, prepping a new single and launching her own guitar line. Nearly a decade after the Runaways split, Ford became a household name when "Kiss Me Deadly" topped out at Number 12 and dominated the airwaves on MTV. She spoke with DigitalJournal.com and recalled her signature tune: "The song has gone through so much. It was originally banned since I said 'didn't get laid,' during PMRC days. Dee Snider and Frank Zappa fought for the right to say these words, since parents were complaining. We had to put sensory stickers on everything. The song 'Kiss Me Deadly' is fun to play. It is an explosive song live."

Ford, who's now 59 and a mother of two, went on to reveal that some new music isn't that far away: "We have a single that is a surprise for the fans, which is really cool. It will be out on 4th of July and it is bad to the bone, and I am really proud of it. It's a cover tune. It is going to hit home with a lot of people."

  • She went on to talk about her new instrument line, Lita Ford Guitars, explaining, "I have a company that we just started, and they are amazing. They are hand-made guitars from real wood, and it's a copy of the original Runaways guitars from the '70s. These guitars are the real deal."
  • Lita Ford tour dates (subject to change):
    June 7 - Houston, TX - Proof Rooftop
