Shinedown went the extra mile with their 2018 studio album WARNING WARNING, creating a narrative that has been visually translated into videos and a film by director Bill Yukich. Now fans will be able to see the collective vision in its entirety as Gravitas Ventures has acquired the distribution rights of the WARNING WARNING film and will make it available for projection on digital video and cable on demand starting September 3.
During the story, Yukick incorporated Shinedown band members Brent Smith, Zach Myers, Eric Bass, and Barry Kerch into the visual narrative with actresses Francesca Eastwood and Melora Walters.
“When we created WARNING WARNING, our vision has always been to present the message as a sound and visual experience. We’re really proud of what we’ve created and are excited to partner with Gravitas Ventures to finally bring the entire film to the world, ”said Shinedown.
The film provides a visual representation of the 14 songs on the album, exposing a story that provides psychological and emotional twists along the way.
“WARNING WARNING the film is where the songs on the album meet with people that this music has had a profound impact on. What begins as several stories, several voices, gradually becomes one message, one voice among many. Years of preparation, I am more than delighted to be able to share this vision, which was inspired by this incredible group, ”Yukich said of the film.
While the visual representation is celebrated with the film’s release, the music is still the cornerstone of what fans will see. The group’s sixth studio album peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart, giving four Mainstream Rock chart-topping singles in “Devil,” “Get Up,” “Monsters” and the title track.
