With a little more than a week to go on this summer's Carnival Of Madness tour, Loudwire asked Shinedown guitarist Zach Myers what the band has coming up next on its schedule. Myers said, "We're going to go home. Brent (Smith, frontman) has to rest his voice. He's not allowed to talk during the day right now. He's on vocal rest, same as Jacoby (Shaddix, Papa Roachsinger). So there are two singers out here who aren't really talking a lot. It's kinda nice (laughs). We take these weeks off, then go to the UK. We're only going to be there for eight days."
Also on the agenda is the possible release of a collection of covers that the group has recorded, with Myers saying, "I'm not sure what's going down with that. Originally we were just going to release it on YouTube, which you don't need permission for obviously, because people do covers on YouTube every day. But I believe fans really want it as a download . . . Now we're going to release it as an EP with just Brent and I. I believe it will come out during the holidays."
