After much success with their third studio album "The Sound of Madness" Shinedown has hit the studio to begin recording for their upcoming fourth album. More after the jump.

Due to the success of their third album, the band has once again teamed up with producer Rob Cavallo to produce a stellar album. In a statement, Cavallo said

One of the things that sets Shinedown apart from most other rock bands is their songwriting. There's an honesty and passion in it that's undeniable. After working with them on 'The Sound Of Madness,' I knew that they would deliver, but they've even surpassed my high expectations with the songs they've brought to the table this time around. I can't wait to get started.

A release date for the new album has not been determined yet, but keep an eye out!
