One of the foremost rock groups of the 2000s is set to perform in the Tahoe Basin.

“Shinedown continually bring both staggering musicality and a powerful emotional complexity to their music,” states the band’s biography.

“There’s always been a certain level of positivity with Shinedown — that’s even where our name came from,” frontman Brent Smith said. “There’s a sense that everything that’s bad has a little bit of good to it, just like everything that’s good has a little bit of bad.”

The theme shines through in the group’s newest full-length album, “Threat to Survival,” which debuted in 2015.

“Featuring lead single ‘Cut the Cord’ — a blistering track that shot to No. 1 on Active Rock radio — ‘Threat to Survival’ finds the multi-platinum-selling band achieving their most powerful sound ever and offering up their most important album to date,” continues the bio.

Three months ago Shinedown released the single “How Did You Love,” a track featured on the 2015 album. One month later, the four-member band released an EP of “How Did You Love” remixes.

“The song’s about asking yourself about how you’ve dealt with difficult situations in your life, and whether you tried to give some love to the world or just allowed hate and negativity to consume you,” Smith said. “So the lyric is ‘How did you love?,’ but really the question is ‘How did you live?’”

Shinedown takes the stage at Grand Sierra Resort and Casino on Saturday, April 15, at 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting at $34 through

Grand Sierra Resort and Casino is located at 2500 E. Second St., in Reno, Nevada.
