Rock Band Releases eBook Companion To Album

Rock band Shinedown has a new album coming out this week and to help promote the release, the group has put out an eBook, FOR YOUR SAKE: Inside the Making of Shinedown’s Amaryllis.

The $5.99 eBook, which is available in iTunes beginning today, tells the story of recording Amaryllis, the band’s new album. It includes exclusive photos, videos and stories and aims to be what liner notes were in the day of vinyl. Here is more from the iTunes listing: “Remember the days of poring over your favorite band’s expansive album artwork and liner notes while listening to the music, trying to get a deeper sense of what went into the creation of the record? Multi-platinum rock band Shinedown wants to bring that experience back – but in a bigger, better, and fully immersive way, only for the iPad.”

Rock journalist Jonah Bayer wrote the content which was produced by Atlantic Records. According to a press release, the creators used the iBooks 2 platform to make the new eBook. The album comes out tomorrow and the band kicks off its tour tomorrow as well.
