Meet the MAKE AMERICA ROCK AGAIN 2017 Artists:
 
Scott Stapp‘s artistic and personal journey have encompassed all the talent and torment imaginable in scaling to musical success. The founding member of Creed chronicled his questions, his quest for answers, and his dreams from faith to fatherhood in chart topping hits, “My Own Prison”, “Higher”, “My Sacrifice”, “One Last Breath” and “With Arms Wide Open”, which dominated the sonic landscape of the 90s-2000s. His soul-piercing lyrics backed by thundering rock riffs garnered a Grammy Award, and countless other accolades of creativity and chart domination, not to mention legions of fans, who felt a kindred spirit in his honesty. Since his original departure from Creed, Stapp has released two solo albums (The Great Divide, 2005 and Proof of Life, 2013 ${“[“}#1 on Christian charts]), a revealing memoir (Sinner’s Creed, 2012), and a “rebirthed” Creed album, (Full Circle, 2009). In addition to his thriving solo career, Stapp is also the lead singer of the new supergroup Art of Anarchy,whose first album with Stapp, The Madness, was released earlier this year. www.scottstapp.com | www.facebook.com/ScottStapp
 
Scott Stapp says, “I’m excited to headline MAKE AMERICA ROCK AGAIN! We’ve got a great line-up that I’m looking forward to touring with. It’s going to be a great summer of rock and roll for the bands and the fans.”
 
Since bursting onto the rock scene, Sick Puppies have sold over one million records and reached a RIAA Gold album certification for their breakout second full-length, Tri-Polar, which yielded two million in single sales. This included the gold-certified “You’re Going Down” as well as rock smashes “Maybe”, “Riptide” and “Odd One”. www.sickpuppies.com | www.facebook.com/sickpuppies
 
Emma Anzai of Sick Puppies adds, “Can’t wait to hit the stage with our good friends for the MAKE AMERICA ROCK AGAIN tour, we’re pumped and ready to go! See ya out there.”
 
Drowning Pool skyrocketed to fame with their debut album, Sinner, which was certified platinum just six weeks after its release. The band have more than fifteen years of success at commercial rock radio, driven by the hard rock anthems “Bodies”, “Tear Away” and “Sinner”, and hits including “37 Stitches”, “Step Up”, “Feel Like I Do” and “One Finger And A Fist”, to name just a few. Drowning Pool continue to support their latest release, Hellelujah (2016, eOne), and are currently at work on their seventh studio album while continuing to perform worldwide. Known for their unwavering support of the military, the band will celebrate on July 4, 2017 by performing for the troops at Guantanamo Bay, and also have summer shows for the U.S. military in Honduras, Romania and Bulgaria. They participated in the inaugural MAKE AMERICA ROCK AGAIN tour in 2016, and are proud to have been asked to return for the 2017 run. www.drowningpool.com | www.facebook.com/drowningpool
 
In a band statement, Drowning Pool says, “We can’t wait to return to the road and MAKE AMERICA ROCK AGAIN – last year’s dates were a blast, but pound-for-pound this year looks to be even bigger and better and is sure to be a don’t-miss experience. Drowning Pooland Scott Stapp were labelmates early in our careers, and it will be great to finally tour with him, our friends in Sick Puppies and Trapt, and our new friends in Adelitas Way. Together, we will… (wait for it)… (keep waiting)… MAKE AMERICA ROCK AGAIN! Can’t wait to see everyone on the road!”
 
RIAA certified platinum hard rock leaders Trapt originally burst onto the scene and radio airwaves in 2002 with their second self-titled album, spawning their career-defining hit “Headstrong”, which hit the #1 spot on both the Billboard Modern Rock and Hot Mainstream Rock charts, as well as #16 on the Top 100 chart at the time of its release. Their following album, Someone In Control, hit the US Mainstream Rock charts in 2005, and was subsequently followed by three more full-length records – Only Through The Pain (2008), No Apologies (2010) and Reborn (2013). Trapt‘s latest album, DNA (2016), represents the rebirth of the band and their ability to transform with current trends – remaining fresh and at the forefront.www.trapt.com | www.facebook.com/trapt
 
Trapt frontman Chris Taylor Brown adds, “Last year’s MAKE AMERICA ROCK AGAIN tour was epic, and the line-up we got this year is going to be even more epic! Can’t wait to rock for all our fans again this summer. Get ready for the best night of your life!”
 
Las Vegas-based hard rock outfit Adelitas Way formed in 2006, but it wasn’t until 2009 that they broke into the mainstream. Their anthemic song, “Invincible”, from their self-titled debut album climbed its way into numerous television spots on CSI Miami, WWE Superstars, the Fox Sports Network, ESPN’s Monday Night Football, and the American League Championship Series on Fox. Adelitas Way released its debut on Virgin Records in July 2009. The band’s sophomore effort, Home School Valedictorian, arrived in Summer 2011, spawning four top five singles – including two #1 hits at rock radio. The record was the band’s highest selling album to date, selling over 150,000 copies and close to one million singles. The band’s third album, Stuck, was released in 2014, and spawned a top 10 single with “Dog on a Leash” (#6) at active rock. Adelitas Way followed up with their fourth album, Getaway, in 2016 and will release their fifth album, Notorious, this year. www.adelitaswaymusic.com | www.facebook.com/adelitasway
 
Adelitas Way frontman Rick DeJesus says, “We love to rock and we love America, so this tour makes sense for us! We are ready to put on electric sets every night of this tour and set the tone for the amazing night music fans will have.”

Drowning Pool To Release ‘Hallelujah’ LP In January 2016

Drowning Pool To Release ‘Hallelujah’ LP In January 2016

drowningpool-2015-1

Platinum selling metal act DROWNING POOL have announced their plans to release an all new LP titled “Hellelujah” on January 22, 2016 via eOne Music. The latest LP will be the first since signing with the label earlier this summer. “We’re excited as hell to announce the release of our new record titled HELLELUJAH” says the band. “This is the most metal record from Drowning Pool to date. Be on the lookout for the new single. Can we get a Hellelujah!? Amen!” 

Hellelujah will be the follow up to Resilience, released in 2013. This time the band tapped renowned producer Jason Suecof (AUGUST BURNS RED, DEICIDE, DEATH ANGEL).

Drowning Pool have beaten the darkness and now they celebrate life on life’s terms. The core trio of C.J. Pierce (guitar), Stevie Benton (bass) and Mike Luce (drums) mine hardship, struggle and disappointment to emerge victorious each time, crafting empowering hard rock anthems. Drowning Pool songs conjure emotions that deeply connect with those who persevere against the odds and sacrifice to survive, and their music transcends boundaries of race, class and lifestyle as well, resonating with people from all walks of life who look to music to get them through life’s challenges.

Jason Moreno’s powerful vocals enabled him to quickly master Drowning Pool’s dense catalog when he became the band’s frontman in 2012. From his reverent delivery of the late Dave Williams mosh-pit ready lyrics in the ubiquitous signature hit “Bodies” to his powerful take on Top 5 Active Rock hits like “Step Up” from Desensitized (2004), “37 Stitches” from Full Circle (2007), and “Feel Like I Do” (Drowning Pool, 2010).

Moreno injects fresh life into the songs with his unique stamp. As Revolver Magazine noted in their review of Resilience“Drowning Pool continue to produce consistently killer albums with an unmistakable sound.”

The band is currently in the studio with renowned producer Jason Suecof (AUGUST BURNS RED, DEICIDE, DEATH ANGEL) and will wrap production this fall. “We are excited to welcome Drowning Pool to the growing roster of bands at eOne,” says eOne VP of Metal/Rock Scott Givens. “I’m personally looking forward to unleashing the band’s new single later this year.”
