This summer promises to be a scorcher regardless of the weather and that's because the 2013 Rock Allegiance Tour will be providing an incendiary rock show for fans across the country. The trek, sponsored by Monster Energy, features a U.N. of hard rock, with Volbeat, HIM, All That Remains and Airbourne making up the bill. Now, the first round of dates for the tour has been announced.
All That Remains
With HIM heading into Loudwire’s Cage Match Hall of Fame after five consecutive victories, it’s time for two new bands to go head to head with their latest singles.
All That Remains will chew up a lot of pavement in the coming months, as the band has just announced a Western U.S trek that will precede all of their festival touring this spring. The group will have an alternating list of support acts on the run, with Hellyeah and Nonpoint playing a majority of the tour, and In This Moment subbing in on select dates.
No matter where your personal musical taste falls, you've got to give some serious respect to Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn. On Friday (Dec. 14), only a very short time after recovering from emergency hernia surgery, Flynn was hit in the family jewels by a New York City cab. After a four-hour hospital stay, Flynn rushed to the Roseland Ballroom to perform that night's set with his band, leading to an onstage diss in the direction of All That Remains for apparently refusing to switch set times despite Flynn's debacle.
Late last year, All That Remains singer Phil Labonte raised a few eyebrows when using the word "f--got" while talking about a song competition between his band and Black Veil Brides. At the time, he was referencing a photo split that featured himself and the glammed out singer of Black Veil Brides, Andy Biersack. The vocalist later clarified his comments and with some distance now between the remarks, he's commented further on the outrage over his usage of the term.
