The 2012 Carnival of Madness lineup has been announced and with female fronted bands Evanescence and Halestorm leading the charge, the annual tour is chock full of girl power. But there's room for the gents, too, as Chevelle and New Medicine round out the bill, serving up a stellar lineup of today's best acts in modern hard rock.
When Staind and Godsmack, two bands hailing from Massachusetts, announced their co-headlining ‘Mass Chaos’ tour run, it was a surprise to see that their home state had been left off of the tour routing. However, the band did manage to hit several New England venues, the closest to home being the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, N.H. last night (May 16).
While rock may be a male dominated world, when the women speak, they do so loudly. Two great examples of that are Amy Lee and her band Evanescence and Lzzy Hale with Halestorm. The two leading ladies have been crossing paths lately and have nothing but kind and supportive words for each other.
Halestorm are heating up the charts with their latest single 'Love Bites (So Do I)' off of their new album 'The Strange Case Of...' Loudwire had the opportunity to briefly chat with to the men of Halestorm recently, and they discussed the new disc and their run on the Mass Chaos Tour with Godsmack and Staind.
You can teleport to Cologne, Germany and enjoy a full Halestorm concert without ever leaving the house. Now that's the wonder of technology, right? A full, 40-minute concert by the female-fronted rock band has been posted online for fans to enjoy. The show took place on Feb. 5 and was filmed legally as part of the Rockpalast series.
