Halestorm to Headline 2017 Loudwire Live Fest in Flint, Michigan
Get ready Flint! It's time for Loudwire Live to return for its 2017 outing! Loudwire Nights affiliate Banana 101.5 has announced the lineup for this year's music festival, with Halestorm headlining the event on Friday, June 16.
Halestorm have been touring off of their Into the Wild Life album, and recently released their ReAniMate 3.0 covers EP as they start the transition to working on new music. But before they leave the stage to work on a new album, you'll be able to catch them heading up a great day of music at Loudwire Live. The Flint, Mich.-based event will take place at the Dort Federal Credit Union Even Center.
Joining Halestorm on the bill will be Skillet, All That Remains and Starset, as well as a still-to-be-named fifth act that will be revealed at a later date. Skillet dropped their Unleashed album in 2016, bolstered by the chart-topping single "Feel Invincible." At present, the band is enjoying a double impact of music, as "Back From the Dead" is climbing the rock charts while a reworked version of "Stars" has been included in the soundtrack for the new movie The Shack.
All That Remains released a pair of new songs -- "Safe House" and "Madness" -- in early February. The latter song, "Madness," is the one currently climbing the rock charts and the band just premiered their lyric video for "Madness" at Loudwire. A new album is expected this spring.
As for Starset, their sophomore set Vessels arrived in January to great reviews. The single "Monster" has received most of the radio play, while the tracks "Back to the Earth," "Ricochet" and "Satellite" also got some attention in the lead up to the release.
