“We literally spend months and months piecing together the exact right mix of artists for Rocklahoma each year,” commented Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the festival for AEG Live.  “Linkin Park and Slayer happen to be two of the most requested artists by the fans of Rocklahoma to play, so to get them both at the same time is a major coup.  But surrounding them with the exact right element of bands that span the spectrum of classic to current and metal to lighter rock, that’s the key.  This year’s lineup has that perfect balance with a little something for everyone”.

In a review of last year’s festival, Jerry Wofford of Tulsa World noted, “While the three days of hard rock and heavy metal bring tens of thousands of people to this field in Pryor, it’s the rock community that keeps so many of them coming back year after year…the first thing people say when asked why they keep coming back: It’s the atmosphere. It’s the people, the hard rock and heavy metal community [May 25, 2014].”

Sevendust Set To Launch Acoustic “An Evening With Sevendust” Tour April 1

Sevendust Set To Launch Acoustic “An Evening With Sevendust” Tour April 1

Posted on 23 January 2014. Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

sevendust-2012
SEVENDUST didn’t waste any time getting 2014 started the best way they know how:  being holed up in the recording studio to create their long-awaited and highly-anticipated acoustic album.   TIME TRAVELERS & BONFIRES will be released in April on 7Bros. Records, in conjunction with ADA Label Services.  On April 1, they’ll hit the road for their first U.S. headlining tour of the year, entitled “An Evening With Sevendust,” which kicks off in Athens, GA at the Georgia Theatre.  It’s their first acoustic trek since 2004, when they were touring in support of their second album, SEASONS, and a format their fans have been anxiously awaiting for once again.
The Atlanta band–Lajon Witherspoon (vocals), Morgan Rose (drums/vocals), Clint Lowery (guitar/vocals), John Connolly (guitar/vocals) and Vince Hornsby (bass/vocals)—entered Architekt Studios in Butler, NJ (where they recorded their previous BLACK OUT THE SUN album) at the beginning of the month to record their highly anticipated and much-talked-about acoustic studio album.
It will be a collection of brand new songs, along with re-recorded SEVENDUST classics.  Newly re-recorded songs will include:  “Black,” “Gone,” “Denial,” “Karma,” “Trust,” and “Crucified.”  Six brand new songs have also been written and recorded for the acoustic album.  It’s not the first time SEVENDUST has explored their acoustic side.  Their critically acclaimed SOUTHSIDE DOUBLE-WIDE live acoustic album was released in 2004.  As All Music Guidehad praised:  “Fans should invest readily in SOUTHSIDE DOUBLE-WIDE…SEVENDUST’s famously confrontational sound smolders, and damn it if their sensitive side isn’t just as fiery.”
On Friday, November 22, 2013, SEVENDUST partnered with PledgeMusic for a direct-to-fan campaign to help fund the creation of TIME TRAVELERS & BONFIRES and was set to last a 130 days.  Over the course of that first weekend, they reached their goal thanks to their “Family” of fans who had received the exciting news solely from the band’s and band member’s personal Facebook and Twitter sites.  SEVENDUST has always said they consider their fans to be part of the SEVENDUST Family, and they certainly proved their love and devotion for the band with the immediate response to the PledgeMusic opportunity.
With over 70 days left in the campaign, SEVENDUST has raised over 155% of their goal with over 2,550 pledges.  Exclusive incentives for pledgers included a digital download of the album before its available anywhere, exclusive updates during the making of the record, signed drumheads and guitar picks, being included in the album’s liner notes, autographed guitars used on tour, and dinner with the band (which was swapped up quick by two very lucky “Family” members).
BLACK OUT THE SUN debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Top Hard Music Albums” chart, as well as #18 on the “Top 200 Albums” chart, #4 on the “Record Label Independent Current Albums” chart, #5 on the “Top Current Rock Albums” chart, #14 on the “Overall Digital Albums” chart and #17 on the “Top Internet Albums” chart.
Later this month, SEVENDUST will be aboard the ShipRocked 2014 cruise, along with Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, Three Days Grace, In This Moment, Tremonti, Black Stone Cherry, and many others.  The ultimate rock music cruise vacation onboard the Norwegian Pearl will depart from the Port Of Miami and will visit Great Stirrup Cay–a private island in the Bahamas–during the January 26-30 excursion.  A limited number of staterooms for the ShipRocked 2014 experience are still available at www.ShipRocked.com.
Here is the official track listing of TIME TRAVELERS & BONFIRES:
1. Come Down
2. Under It All
3. The Wait
4. Upbeat Sugar
5. One Life
6. Bonfire
7. Gone

Coming This Summer!

Coming This Summer!

Listen closely to what’s lingering in the distance…it’s the sound of some of Rock’s biggest bands converging together to bring pandemonium to eager and willing participants at the 2013 CARNIVAL OF MADNESS tour, powered by Monster Energy.

Sure to be known as the premier rock tour of 2013, the highly anticipated CARNIVAL OF MADNESS–sponsored by Monster Energy–returns this summer with multi-Platinum rock band SHINEDOWN, along with PAPA ROACHSKILLETIN THIS MOMENT, and WE AS HUMAN.  The tour will begin on the east coast Sunday, August 11.  Tour dates will be announced on Monday, June 3 with the general on-sale beginning Friday, June 7.

SHINEDOWN makes their triumphant return to the CARNIVAL OF MADNESS after headlining the 2010 inaugural launch, with a lineup that also included  Sevendust, Chevelle, Puddle of Mudd, and 10 Years.  The first CARNIVAL OF MADNESS proved to be one of the biggest tours of the summer, heralded as a Top 50 tour by Pollstar.  Last year’s trek featured EvanescenceChevelleHalestorm,and New Medicine. 
CARNIVAL OF MADNESS is more than a show–it’s an experience,” proclaims SHINEDOWN frontman Brent Smith.  “This year, it’s all about reinvention.  The culmination of five powerful and dynamic bands joining together to prove to the world that rock-n-roll is alive and well.  So, step right up.  Come one, come all.  The CARNIVAL OF MADNESS has arrived!!!”
PAPA ROACH frontman Jacoby Shaddix says, “We’re so stoked to be on CARNIVAL OF MADNESS this year.  It’s an absolutely killer bill from top to bottom…fans better be ready to get crazy at these shows.”
“I can hardly wait for the CARNIVAL OF MADNESS,” says SKILLET lead singer John Cooper.  “SHINEDOWN is one of the best bands in the business and we’re excited to share the stage with them and great performers like PAPA ROACHIN THIS MOMENT, and WE AS HUMAN.  Also, it’ll be our first tour playing songs from our new album, RISE, so SKILLLET will be doing our best to bring the pain every night!”
As IN THIS MOMENT declares, “We are thrilled to be a part of CARNIVAL OF MADNESS this year.  SHINEDOWN is one of our favorite bands and it is truly an honor to share the stage with them again.  All the bands involved this year bring something unique and exciting to the table, making this a ‘do not miss’ event!  We are humbled and grateful that we get to be a part of CARNIVAL OF MADNESS this year, and can’t wait to surprise you with our brand new show this summer!”
WE AS HUMAN lead singer Justin Cordle agrees, “I can’t begin to tell you how stoked we are to be on the CARNIVAL OF MADNESSthis year. To be able to meet new fans on a tour with so many bands that we’ve admired for so long is incredible.  We are ready to do this!”
SHINEDOWN is indisputably one of the most successful rock bands of the past 10+ years, enjoying an unparalleled streak of hits.  The band’s current album, AMARYLLIS, entered the Billboard “Top 200 Albums” chart at #4 upon its release (#1 on the “Top Rock Albums” chart), and has already spawned three consecutive #1 singles with “Bully,” “Unity,” and “Enemies.”  Over the course of their illustrious career, SHINEDOWN has scored a staggering 17 #1 singles (including their current streak of 10 consecutive #1 rock radio hits).  The band’s latest single, I’ll Follow You,” is currently #3 on the rock chart.  The band’s performance of the song for their just-released THE LIVE ROOM EP can be viewed at The Warner Sound (http://bit.ly/11M3mtU).  One of the most exciting live rock acts,Pollstar has listed SHINEDOWN’s most recent headlining trek on their Top 20 Concert Tours of 2013.  The band’s unprecedented ascendancy over multi-format rock radio commenced with their RIAA Platinum-certified 2003 debut LEAVE A WHISPER, its Gold-certified 2005 follow-up, US AND THEM, and 2008’s Platinum-certified THE SOUND OF MADNESS.  SHINEDOWN’s numerous national television appearances include performances on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The Today Show,” CBS’ “The Early Show,” among others.
SHINEDOWN is also releasing THE LIVE ROOM EP in conjunction with the tour announcement.  Available at leading digital retailers starting today, the five song-collection features tracks from the band’s fourth studio album, AMARYLLIS, recorded live at Henson Studios (formerly the historic A&M Studios) in Hollywood, CA.  Highlights include audio and video performances of SHINEDOWN’scurrent single “I’ll Follow You,” chart-topping smash “Bully”, and rendition of Carole King’s “I Feel The Earth Move.”
Proving that they haven’t gone anywhere, PAPA ROACH recently scored yet another #1 radio hit, which is their career fifth and comes 13 years after their first with “Last Resort.” “Where Did The Angels Go” topped the active rock radio chart, according to BDS/Billboard.  Very few bands have achieved #1 success at multiple times spanning over a decade – a feat that PAPA ROACH is highly underrated for accomplishing.  The single comes from the band’s latest acclaimed album, THE CONNECTION (Eleven Seven Music), which was released in October 2012 and debuted as the #2 rock album on iTunes.  Revolver declared the album, “a fist-pumping return to form…”  PAPA ROACH has sold upwards of 10 million albums worldwide.  The band boasts two Grammy® nominations, an MTV VMA nomination, as well as eleven Top 10 rock hits, seven Top 10 alternative hits and can claim the Most Played Alternative Song of the Decade (BDS) with their breakthrough single “Last Resort.”  The band also recently surpassed 4 million fans on Facebook.  Known for their electrifying and explosive live shows, PAPA ROACH has become the common denominator for some of the most successful rock tours in recent years.
Two-time Grammy®-nominated rock band SKILLET recently made headlines when their last album, AWAKE, became one of just three rock albums to be certified Platinum in 2012, forming an improbable triumvirate with the Black Keys’ EL CAMINO and Mumford & Sons’ BABEL. The news that SKILLET had sold more than a million albums in the U.S. came as a shock to all but the band’s wildly diverse horde of fans.  AWAKE debuted at #2 on Billboard’s “Top 200 Albums” chart and #1 on the magazine’s “Top Modern Rock/Alternative Albums” chart.  In addition, the record hit #1 on iTunes’ Top Album Chart, garnered three Billboard Music Awards and spawned four hit singles including the #1-charting, Gold-certified “Awake & Alive,” the Gold-certified “Hero,” “It’s Not Me It’s You” and the Platinum-certified “Monster.”  “Monster” lived up to its name, selling more than a million copies while its companion video has generated over 52 million YouTube views. The hook-happy “Hero” was featured in season-long spots for NBC’s NFL Sunday Night Football and served as the official theme song for WWE’s Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View. The band toured endlessly in support, playing to sold-out crowds across the country, which earned them a spot on Pollstar’s Concert Pulse Chart of the Top 50 Tours for Fall of 2010. The band is now gearing up for the June 25th release of new album, RISE. Anticipation surrounding the album is red-hot, thanks to two new songs, “Sick Of It” and “American Noise,” both of which hit #1 on the iTunes Rock Chart.
IN THIS MOMENT joins the CARNIVAL OF MADNESS in support of their latest Century Media release, BLOOD.  The album was released in August of 2012 where it debuted at #15 on the Billboard “Top 200 Albums” chart and has scanned over 150,000 units to date.  BLOOD has spawned the hit singles “Blood” and “Adrenalize.”  IN THIS MOMENT began in Los Angeles in 2005, when singer Maria Brink and guitarist Chris Howorth met at an open jam. Their debut album, BEAUTIFUL TRAGEDY, landed the band on the 2007 and 2008 editions of Ozzfest. Their first collaboration with producer Kevin Churko came with the release of 2008’s THE DREAM – earning them a slot on the 2009 Warped Tour.  Their third album, A STAR-CROSSED WASTELAND (2010), was their highest-charting album until the release of their latest album took the distinction.
WE AS HUMAN signed to Atlantic Records via Hear It Loud, a partnership helmed by John Cooper of SKILLET, manager Zach Kelm and attorney Todd Rubenstein, in 2011 after they were discovered by Cooper.  Made up of musicians Justin Cordle, Jake Jones, Justin Forshaw, Adam Osborne and Dave Draggoo, the band toured heavily at the start of their major label career, performing before sold-out shows on the “Awake and Alive” tour with SKILLET and Winter Jam 2012. Their debut album, WE AS HUMAN, will be released on June 25.
