In celebration of their new studio album Planet Zero, Shinedown are unveiling their interactive app, the Planet Zero Observer and a free global release day livestream event via Veeps.

With the Planet Zero Observer app, by allowing access to location & gyroscope on your mobile device, fans can discover Planet Zero in orbit, plus other secrets in the sky. By using the Observer, fans can unlock exclusive content, messages from Shinedown and Cyren, share content and much more.

The Planet Zero Observer was designed by Lee Martin, an in-demand creative who develops cutting-edge digital experiences and content, pushing the boundaries of how we interact and engage with music. Download the Planet Zero Observer here.

Shinedown will also be celebrating the release of Planet Zero on 1 July with a free Veeps global livestream of their album release day event. Taking place at Daddy Kool Records in St. Petersburg, FL, starting at 8pm BST/3pm ET, Shinedown will perform a free outdoor show, followed by a celebration and in-store signing with local fans. Global livestream tickets can be picked up here.

Shinedown’s most recent single, Daylight, is a meaningful portrait of the vital human connection that reminds us that we are never alone, reflecting the importance of empathy and relationships in our lives.

Planet Zero is the latest addition to a catalogue that has earned Shinedown recognition for their timely, relevant messages behind chart-topping hits that resonate with not only their global audience and the rock community, but the greater public and our culture at large. With more than 6.5 billion global streams, the record for the most Mainstream Rock No. 1 hits at US radio ever, platinum or gold certification for all their albums, and major media praise, Shinedown have cemented their status as one of the most vital and forward-thinking powerhouses in music.

The band also recently announced the UK and European leg of their ‘Planet Zero World Tour’, set to arrive on these shores in November 2022. Tickets are on sale now, with a couple of UK shows already sold out.

Frontman and vocal icon, Brent Smith says: “We have always been inspired by the UK and European audiences. Their passion for music is extraordinary. We are beyond excited to be returning as headliners, with our biggest show yet! We are overwhelmed by the love and support of our new album, Planet Zero and look forward to sharing our new songs, along with all of your Shinedown favourites!!! Cheers!!!”
