Merry Christmas ya filthy animals! It's almost that time again and I hope everyone has their chimney cleaned out for Santa Claus! Although I don't necessarily expect you to, given the temperatures outside. Santa and all those reindeer are going to have it rough this year. It is also a good time to reflect on the year we have had. We take the good and try to use it to build for the next year, and the bad we toss it out the window like nothing happened. Right??? Okay, maybe not. But I hope the good outweighs the bad for everyone. Christmas and the holidays are not all about the folklore, though. It is about giving back and showing love to the ones you care about and even some you don't. Let's all try to keep our spirits high this year and remember that it is about how you love. That is what Shinedown says about it, anyway, and I agree with that fully. We have some very exciting things coming in the new year! New music is coming in January, and some promising tour dates are ready to drop along with it. Stay tuned here to the website for all the fixin's. Thank you to everyone for voting on our contests in Loudwire. If you are feeling a little extra holiday spirit this year we are up for a few more fans choice awards and would love to win them all.
