There are already quite a few rock festivals scheduled for the spring and early summer, but the Operation Rock Festival is the one that stands out for its commitment to the military men and women who serve our country. The event, which features headliners Pop Evil and Nonpoint, will take place June 21 in Fredericksburg, Va.
Fans who were on this year’s ShipRocked cruise are still having dreams of the sunny weather and multiple stages of music. As fans met and chatted with numerous musicians who walked all over the ship, lots of people talked about how approachable and pleasant Nonpoint frontman Elias Soriano and the rest of band were to their fans. When Loudwire sat down with Soriano, we couldn't help but agree.
With all new digs aboard their new home on the glorious Norwegian Pearl, the 2014 ShipRocked cruise set sail on Jan. 25 for a four-day, nonstop rock 'n' roll extravaganza. Offering up six on-board stages and a private Bahamas island beach stage, the excursion lived up to all expectations of rocking the high seas.
Update: Amazingly, we had the first-ever tie in the history of Loudwire's Cage Match. Filter and Nonpoint received the exact same number of votes by our deadline of 8AM ET Friday. So, with that, we have our first ever Cage Match Overtime. This match has been extended until 8AM ET Monday, May 20.
With Escape the Fate heading to Loudwire’s Cage Match Hall of Fame, it’s time for two new bands to go at it with their newest 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.
