Info for Volume 2



Smith & Myers – the duo comprising Shinedown’s frontman Brent Smith and guitarist Zach Myers – have released two tracks from their newly-announced full-length album, Smith & Myers Volume 2, out October 23rd via Atlantic Records. The collection follows in the wake of Volume 1’s release on October 9th.

Original track "Bad At Love" is a vulnerable and personal song about the difficulties of staying in a romantic relationship and is accompanied by a brand new video directed by Sanjay Parikh. "Bad At Love" is paired with the release of a grungy, re-imagined version of Billie Eilish’s "Bad Guy".

Brent tells us, “'Bad At Love' was one of the very first original songs to be written for the project. I think ultimately the song was born from my own romantic relationships. When I love someone, I love them fully and sometimes the passion can be too much. I always know when it’s time to move on. That being said, I am extremely grateful that I am still very good friends with the ladies I have loved, and still love, to this day.”

Zach says, "Lyrically, Brent was writing about things in his life that maybe we wouldn’t really touch on with Shinedown and I think it came out to be an incredibly naked and honest song. And I think 'Bad Guy' turned out very cool – it’s a nice bluesy version of the song.”

The tracks are an introduction to Smith & Myers’ eloquent songcraft, indelible melodies and glorious vocals created with nothing more than a microphone and an instrument or two. Smith & Myers Volume 1 is available for pre-order here and features five original tunes and five re-imaginings of fan-submitted songs including Post Malone’s "Better Now", INXS’ "Never Tear Us Apart", The Righteous Brothers’ "Unchained Melody" and The Zutons’ "Valerie".

With two hearts and one truth, lifelong musicians, long standing friends and eternal brothers, Brent Smith and Zach Myers put forth a body of work encompassing vulnerability, fearlessness, honesty, outrage, love and understanding. Smith & Myers Volume 1, produced by Grammy Award-winner and longtime collaborator Dave Bassett, is the duo’s first full-length album and first original music since releasing a pair of acoustic cover EPs, Acoustic Sessions, Part 1 and Acoustic Sessions, Part 2, in 2014 when fans first fell in the love with the magic that is created between Brent and Zach in the studio and on stage, leading to Smith & Myers live shows that sold out instantly. With no boundaries on what their songwriting could discuss on the new album, Brent and Zach touch on a range of subject, including personal topics they’ve left largely unexplored until now, to commentary on children being ripped from their parents at the border, to the reactive nature of social media, to our national reckoning with racial and systemic injustice - focusing not on politics, but on right and wrong and our connection as human beings.

Smith & Myers



Smith & Myers
is an acoustic side project from Shinedown frontman Brent Smith and guitarist Zach Myers. The project was born when the Florida band's marketing rep at Atlantic Records suggested they hold a contest online where fans would submit songs they'd like to hear the band cover acoustically. They received a huge response, eventually whittling down the submissions to an initial six, with four more to be revealed at a later date. Accompanied by YouTube videos of the two musicians performing each song, the (Acoustic Sessions) EP was released in early 2014 under the name Smith & Myers. Some of the songs included in the project are the Clash's "London Calling," Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters," and Soul Asylum's "Runaway Train."

This album contains no booklet.
