The latest addition to Bangor’s Waterfront Concerts summer lineup was announced early Monday morning, with the bands Shinedown, Papa Roach and Adelita’s Way set for Thursday, July 5. Tickets go on sale on Friday, May 25 and are set at $41.50 for general admission.

“AMARYLLIS,” the fourth studio album from Atlantic recording group Shinedown, has made a big debut atop Billboard’s Rock Albums chart, while simultaneously entering at number 4 on the overall Billboard 200 with over 105,000 units sold. This marks the multiplatinum group’s highest ever chart debut which also sees “AMARYLLIS” standing tall at number 1 on the Hard Rock Albums chart as well as number 3 on the Digital Albums chart.

The album’s first single “Bully” continues to hold the number 1 at Rock radio, marking
Shinedown’s 7th consecutive chart-topper at the format. The official “Bully” video –
directed by Darren Doane, has received early adds at mtvU and Fuse’s No. 1 Countdown.
A video for the album’s upcoming second single, “Unity,” premiered on AOL’s Noisecreep. Both “Bully” and “Unity” are streaming at ShinedownTV, the band’s YouTube channel (located at www.youtube.com/ShinedownTV).

“AMARYLLIS” sees Shinedown joining forces once more with multiple Grammy
Award-winning producer Rob Cavallo (Kid Rock, Green Day), who previously collaborated
with the band on the record-breaking “THE SOUND OF MADNESS.” Recorded at Cavallo’s Lightning Sound studios outside of Los Angeles and a pair of Hollywood landmarks, Ocean Way Recording and Capitol Studios, the album was recently named among “This Year’s Best Bets” by Billboard, which noted the inventive addition of synths, a 27-piece orchestra, and a 10-piece horn section to the band’s powerful hard rock. Shinedown is: Brent Smith (vocals), Barry Kerch (drums), Zach Myers (guitars), and
Eric Bass (bass). For further news and information, visit www.shinedown.com.

Papa Roach are best known for their 2000 album “Infest,” which spawned the popular song “Last Resort.” Adelita’s Way broke into the mainstream in 2009 with the song “Invincible,” currently the official theme song for WWE Superstars.
