Shinedown guitarist Zach Myers has revealed that the band is currently hard at work on a new album and plan to hit the studio this summer. While speaking with, Myers said they have about 14 new tracks written for the album, but they're certainly in no rush to get it finished.

"We aren't a band that goes into the studio and makes a record in six weeks. The Sound Of Madness [their 2008 release] took 24 months to write. [Frontman] Brent [Smith] has this weird thing when we're writing, we go into the studio, and there are no clocks around; there are no calendars on the wall. He doesn't like to have a time limit on being creative," Myers explains of the band's creative process.

And though Myers says they won't release the album until 2012, fans can catch him playing on his debut solo tour. Myers is joined by his friend Chris Allen for the acoustic dates on which he will play his own solo material and a few of Shinedown's lesser-known tracks.

Hmmm, I don't know, maybe he would know because he is a MEMBER OF THE BAND! You people are idiots, seriously.

Zach didn't have anything to do with the Sound of madness so how would he know. The whole record was written by Brent Smith,Dave Bassett and Rob Cavallo. That's a fact that you can go to ascap and see for yourself.
