Shinedown‘s Planet Zero will be arriving a few months later than originally planned.

In an Instagram post Tuesday, the “Second Chance” rockers announced that the upcoming album, which was scheduled to drop next Friday, April 22, will now be arriving on July 1, citing “delays in vinyl production.”

“We want to ensure our fans have FULL access to Planet Zero via every possible medium on the day it comes out to give you all the BEST album release experience possible!” Shinedown says.

Planet Zero is Shinedown’s seventh studio album, and is the follow-up to 2018’s ATTENTION ATTENTION. It includes the previously released title track, which is also the record’s lead single, and the cut “The Saints of Violence and Innuendo.”

In happier Shinedown news, the band is being inducted into the Mohegan Sun Arena Walk of Fame, which honors artists that “have made significant contributions to the success” of the Connecticut concert venue.

Shinedown will be officially inducted during a ceremony taking place at the Mohegan Sun the afternoon of April 16, during which the band’s official Walk of Fame star will be unveiled. Later that night, Shinedown will play their fifth sold-out show at the arena, and sixth overall.

Previous Mohegan Sun Walk of Fame inductees include Mötley Crüe, KISS, Bon Jovi and Taylor Swift.
