PENTICTON - American alternative rockers Shinedown are making a stop in Penticton as part of band's 2018 Canadian tour.

Shinedown will be joined at the Powerball concert at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton on Tuesday, March 27 by special guests In This Moment, One Bad Son and Ten Years.

Shinedown takes a different approach to their normally brutally powered, epic rock songs with a change to a more direct approach in their latest album “Threat to Survival”, according to a media release. The album features the lead single “Cut the Cord” which reached number one on active rock radio.

The multi-platinum selling band, which includes members Barry Kerch, Eric Bass, Brent Smith and Zach Myers, Shinedown is known for their musicality and the emotional complexity they bring to their music. 

Smith says the group stoves for achieving a level of positivity in their music.

"The songs on this album address the reality that we’re all going to die at some point and that sometimes the willingness to survive is all you have. It’s about holding onto that sheer will to live, and getting through whatever might come your way because the legacy that you leave behind is what will carry you on to your next journey,” he says.

Tickets for the Power 105 Powerball concert March 27 — which are $39.50 and $59.50 plus service charges — go on sale Friday, Dec. 15 at 10 a.m. online at www.valleyfirsttix.com.
