Touring in support of last year's release, The Sound of Madness, Florida-based Shinedown (Eric Bass, bass/piano/vocals; Brent Smith, vocals; Zach Myers, guitar; and Barry Kerch, drums) is working with front-of-house engineer Doug Nightwine, who reports that they are carrying little in the way of gear and relying on house support; monitor engineer for the tour is Chris Lightcap.
How did you get involved with this tour?
I was mixing Puddle of Mudd, who is co-managed by the same company.

How much gear are you carrying?
Board groups. Yamaha PM5D in monitor world, Digidesign Profile at front of house.
What is your go-to piece of gear for this band?
I would have to say the Profile. It's a powerful mix system in such a small footprint.
Where can we find you when you're not on the road?
Still on the road. There are more December shows still being confirmed.
