Rock band Shinedown has announced several US headlining tour dates for this spring with support coming from Bush and Airbourne. The band also has tour dates with Stone Sour, Papa Roach, Three Days Grace, and P.O.D., all of which can be seen below.
The Carolina Rebellion music festival will be headlined this year by Alice In Chains on May 4th and Soundgarden on May 5th. Other acts include Deftones, Three Days Grace, 3 Doors Down, Volbeat, and many more. The event will take place at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina.
“After wrapping up our last U.S. tour, we were planning on recharging our batteries for awhile, but we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to play with the mighty Soundgarden in what will be one of the only shows we’ll play in the U.S. this year,” says Tim Mcllrath of Rise Against.
Michael Poulsen of Volbeat comments, “In Europe and the U.S., we have enjoyed the experiences that come from being a part of the festival environment, just as the fans do. Looking forward to Carolina Rebellion!”
The line up for the 2013 edition of Rock On The Range has been announced and it’s basically full of bands that I would punch a few puppies to see. Headlining the 3-day event are Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, and Smashing Pumpkins while amazing bands such as Bush, Stone Sour, Volbeat, Lamb Of God, In Flames, Ghost, Heaven’s Basement, and more are also slated to perform. A nearly complete list of bands performing can be seen below.
The 3-day event begins Friday, Mar. 17th and ends Sunday night, Mar. 19th.
Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell states, “We’re really looking forward to returning to Rock On The Range with a batch of brand new killer Alice tunes to play for everyone!”
Korn’s Jonathan Davis adds, “Head is back!! Rock On The Range is going to start it all off!! Get ready, we are going to hit it hard!!”
Gavin Rossdale of Bush comments, “Bush are thrilled to be playing Rock On The Range with such great bands. We look forward to seeing you all out there.” READ MORE
At Bush’s concert last night in Los Angeles, CA, Gavin Rossdale was joined by his wife Gwen Stefani (No Doubt) during their performance of “Glycerine”. The surprise took place at the 23rd annual KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas at the Gibson Ampitheatre. You can watch fan-filmed footage of the song below.
While it’s not terrible, I just cannot stand Stefani’s constant upward inflections when she sings. It seems like every line has to end with her pitch rising. Also, and I know that this is a REALLY stupid complaint, why the hell is she wearing high heels? Totally out of place in her outfit. READ MORE

Alright, my initial enjoyment of Nickelback‘s When We Stand Together has pretty much completely worn off. No more shame and guilt here (at least not from this situation). But then these Canuck bastards put together a tour with two bands that I genuinely enjoy: Bush and Seether. My Darkest Day? I can probably count the number of their songs I’ve heard on one hand. If the line-up is anything like I imagine (My Darkest Day–>Seether–>Bush–>Nickelback), then I’ll show up late and leave after Bush. Good concert right there!
Raise your hand if you owned Sixteen Stone, the debut album from British alternative rock band Bush. You can’t see it, but my arm is pointed straight at the ceiling. I played the everliving hell out of that album. I’d even go so far as to say that it helped shape my taste in music into what I currently love. Their mix of rock with melancholic beauty really appealed to me and I still love rocking out to Glycerin, Machinehead and Comedown.
