"Going gold on Amaryllis is a true testament to our ‘family’ of fans," says frontman Brent Smith in a statement. "In a time where music and the music industry is an ever-changing enigma, we as artists and performers must always remember that there is only one boss that we all truly answer to…and it’s everyone out in the audience. We are honored beyond belief to have such an amazing fanbase to get us to the next chapter."

Amaryllis debuted at number one on the Billboard Rock Albums chart and at number 4 on the Billboard 200. It was the highest showing for Shinedown on both charts. The album featured hit singles "Bully," "Unity" and "Enemies."

In future Shinedown news, the band has begun working on their fifth studio album. The currently untitled record will be released in 2015. Shinedown will also be taking a page out of the Angels and Airwaves playbook by creating a feature-length film to accompany the album. Darren Doane, who directed the Shinedown videos for "Devour," "Sound of Madness," "Bully," "Enemies," and "I’ll Follow You," will work on the film.
