Over the course of their illustrious career, SHINEDOWN has scored seventeen #1 singles (including their current streak of nine consecutive #1 rock radio hits). The band’s unprecedented ascendancy over multi-format rock radio commenced with their RIAA platinum certified 2003 debut “LEAVE A WHISPER,” its gold certified 2005 follow-up, “US AND THEM,” and 2008’s platinum certified “THE SOUND OF MADNESS.” SHINEDOWN’s numerous national television appearances include performances on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Today Show, CBS’ The Early Show, among others.
