Shinedown will hit the road in early 2010 for a winter U.S. trek, with Puddle Of Mudd and Skillet as opening acts. Although Skillet headlines its own tours on the Christian music circuit, frontman John Cooper told us that it can be a different scene when the band plays more mainstream rock shows: "When we do our own tours -- you know, we're doing like a small arena tour right now, you know, and you know, we'll have somewhere between two and three thousand people come to the most of the shows. Then we'll go do a mainstream radio show and play at 11:00 in the morning (laughs), and nobody knows who we are, you know. It's just a really bizarre thing. Our fans will come and be crazy to see Skillet and everybody else is like, 'What is this?'"

Only two dates for the tour have surfaced so far, on January 29th in Atlantic City, New Jersey and February 12th in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Skillet is supporting its eighth album, Awake, which debuted at Number Two on the Billboard album chart in early September.

Puddle Of Mudd's upcoming album, Volume 4: Songs In The Key Of Love And Hate, is due out December 8th.

Shinedown is still supporting its June 2008 release, The Sound Of Madness.
