…has Shinedown been up to? The rock band, who has been around for more than a decade, just released its fourth album “Amaryllis” in 2012, a follow-up to 2008’s “The Sound of Madness,” and they couldn’t be happier with the results.

“This was the first true international record we received,” lead vocalist Brent Smith told NME Magazine, “and I say received because it really is an honor and it’s a gift and it really is a privilege to get an opportunity from your record label to be released internationally.”

The quartet is currently on tour and will come to the Mohegan Sun Arena (225 Highland Boulevard) on April 30 with special guests Bush and Airborne.

Tickets for the show go on sale March 16 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at, all Ticketmaster outlets, and charge by phone at 800.745.3000. Prices range from $24.50 to $40.50.
