Announces 2011 Live Album Somewhere In The Stratosphere To Be Released for the First Time on Vinyl

Limited-Edition Red, Black & Beige Splattered 4LP Set Due Out December 8th

Multi-platinum, chart-topping band Shinedown has announced their 2011 live album, Somewhere In The Stratosphere, will be available for the first time on vinyl on Friday, December 8th. The limited-edition red, black, and beige splattered 4LP set includes the band’s multi-platinum hit single “Second Chance” and their platinum single “If You Only Knew” as well as covers of Foo Fighters’ “Times Like These” and Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man” and much more. Somewhere In The Stratosphere (Atlantic Records) is comprised of two full live show recordings: an electric set from Washington State and an acoustic set from Kansas City. Full track listings below. The Somewhere In The Stratosphere 4LP vinyl set is available exclusively via Shinedown’s official store .

While Shinedown is the most successful rock radio band of all time, holding the record for the most mainstream rock #1s in Billboard history, they also believe that music is universal and doesn’t have to be put in a genre box. With a message about how we are all a work in progress, “A Symptom Of Being Human” continues to resonate with listeners. Following its impact at Hot AC this summer, where it reached Top 15, the song is now rising up the Alternative Radio chart. Shinedown’s exploration of the resilience of the human spirit, experiences with mental health, and the importance of empathy shine through in the track reminding us that we are more similar than we are different. Shinedown has also released a variety of remixes for the hit song and recently performed “A Symptom Of Being Human” on Live with Kelly and Mark for the song’s TV debut. Collectively, “A Symptom Of Being Human” has amassed over 25 million streams.
