“I’ve always envisioned the Carnival of Madness as more than just a music festival.  It is a celebration of rock music where the lines between those on stage and those in the audience are blurred.  Where everyone is sharing in this amazing moment. Truly experiencing the power of rock music together.  This year, we’ve gathered artists from across the rock spectrum to bring the most dynamic Carnival of Madness to date.  Come join us.” – Brent Smith, Shinedown lead vocalist.

“State Of My Head,” the latest single from Shinedown’s blockbuster new album THREAT TO SURVIVAL, marks yet another milestone in the band’s historic run of chart topping hits. The track recently reached #1 at Mainstream Rock outlets nationwide, and the powerful “State Of My Head” companion video will receive its debut live TV performance next month when Shinedown returns to ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! for a much-anticipated appearance, scheduled for Wednesday, April 13 (check local listings). Shinedown is: Brent Smith (vocals), Barry Kerch (drums), Zach Myers (guitars), and Eric Bass (bass).
