Atlantic recording group Shinedown continues to make rock history as their latest studio album, "AMARYLLIS," has been Gold-certified by the RIAA for sales in excess of 500,000 units.  With this latest certification, all four studio albums released by the multiplatinum rock band have been certified Gold and/or Platinum.

"Going gold on Amaryllis is a true testament to our 'family' of fans," says Shinedown frontman Brent Smith.  "In a time where music and the music industry is an ever-changing enigma, we as artists and performers must always remember that there is only one boss that we all truly answer to… and it's everyone out in the audience.  We are honored beyond belief to have such an amazing fanbase to get us to the next chapter."

In celebration of the gold certification and as a thank you to their fans, the band has a wide variety of special offers available now at the official Shinedown webstore.  For details, please visit

"AMARYLLIS" debuted at #1 on Billboard's "Rock Albums" chart and at #4 overall on the Billboard 200 upon its release, marking Shinedown's highest chart debut.  Singles "Bully," "Unity," and "Enemies" all went to #1 on the rock radio charts, continuing a streak of nine consecutives #1's at the format and earning Shinedown the seventeenth chart-topper of their illustrious career.  "AMARYLLIS" also featured hit singles "I'll Follow You" and "Adrenaline" which continues their record-setting streak in which every one of the band's eighteen singles over their decade-plus career have reached the top 5 of the Rock radio charts – a feat that no other rock band has achieved.

Shinedown has already begun work on the highly anticipated follow-up to "AMARYLLIS."   The band has also teamed with longtime collaborator Darren Doane - who directed the band's companion music videos for singles "Devour," "Sound Of Madness," "Bully," "Enemies," and "I'll Follow You" – on a full-length feature film to accompany the as-yet-untitled album's 2015 release.
