Last year, Shinedown‘s Brent Smith told ABC Audio that a film revolving around their 2018 album ATTENTION ATTENTION would be released in 2021. Well, his promise has come to pass.
Deadline reports that the movie, described as a “cinematic experience” of the album, has been acquired by Gravitas Ventures and will arrive on digital and VOD on September 3. It features the band members — plus actresses Francesca Eastwood and Melora Walters — starring in a visual interpretation of the music.
Deadline further reports that according to Gravitas, the film is “a powerful and enduring statement about humanity, overcoming struggles, the importance of mental health, not being afraid to fail and the resolve of the human spirit.”
In a statement, Shinedown tells Deadline, “When we created ATTENTION ATTENTION, our vision was always to present the message as a sonic and visual experience. We’re really proud of what we created and are beyond excited to partner with Gravitas Ventures to finally bring the film in its entirety to the world.”
ATTENTION ATTENTION topped Billboard’s Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock Albums Charts when it was released, and also debuted in the top five on the Billboard 200.
As previously reported, Shinedown’s fall tour will kick off September 6 and run through October 9, with Ayron Jones, Theory of a Deadman, The Struts, Pop Evil and Zero 9:36 opening, each depending on the date. For the full list of shows and all ticket info, visit Shinedown.com.
