Shinedown have confirmed that they have already recorded the follow-up to this years' 'Amaryllis'.

The band released their fourth album earlier this year, which was the follow up to 2008's 'The Sound Of Madness'. But they have now revealed in an interview with NME that a new album is already in the bag.

"I've thought about new material. It's funny because…and you're actually the very first person I'll tell this too…I've done plenty of interviews but never let this one out of the bag. We've actually done another record of material. It's actually recorded," singer Brent Smith said in a video interview that you can watch above.

Speaking about the sound of the new material, he added: "It's still very massive. It has a very epic feel to it. But the tempos are a little slower and the subject matter is a little different. I would say it's actually a bit darker. A little bit more mischievous.

When asked about the success of the band's last album 'Amaryllis' Smith added: "This was the first true international record we received. And I say received because it really is an honour and it's a gift and it really is a privilege to get an opportunity from your record label to be released internationally. Because not every band or every artist gets that opportunity."
