Looks like the Rockstar Uproar Festival is getting a hefty dose of 90′s awesomeness as grunge legends Alice In Chains have been announced as the headlining act for the tour. Their direct support is 90′s rock giant Jane’s Addiction, whose 2011 album The Great Escape Artist is still something I play frequently (seriously, it’s a great album). Also on the main stage will be prog rockers Coheed And Cambria and Circa Survive.
“I think it’s going to be a fun tour and we’re really looking forward to it. It’s only going to happen that one time, that way, and you’re going to be there,” says Jerry Cantrell of Alice In Chains.
The second stage will see performances from Middle Class Rut, Walking Papers, New Politics, Danko Jones, Chuck Shaffer Picture Show, and the local winner of the Ernie Ball Battle Of The Bands. All tour dates can be seen below. READ MORE
Danish rockers Volbeat have announced that they will be releasing their new studio album Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies this Spring. The band recorded the album with producer Rob Caggiano (Anthrax) and Jacob Hansen, who produced and mixed the previous four Volbeat releases.
Front man Michael Poulsen reveals; “We’re back in the studio, this time breaking some of our old habits and this sometimes means leaving our comfort zone. We are recording in a new environment, producing with a new set up breaking new sonic ground and it’s exciting! Together with our long time collaborator Jacob Hansen we also have the honor of having producer Rob Caggiano on board in the producer’s seat. Expect lots of surprises and some of our most rocking heavy songs to date. We feel more than ever that we are taking the Volbeat sound to another level without changing what we’re all about. Can’t wait for it to get out there!”
