With a ridiculously jam-packed day that featured 14 bands on three different stages spread out over 10 nonstop hours of music, the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival offers up one heck of a music equation resulting in only one thing - an overdose of rock.
Now in its third year, the 2012 class of Uproar Fes
The two-day Rock Vegas festival is taking over Sin City on Sept. 28 and 29, and Loudwire is giving away a trip for two that includes tickets to the shows, roundtrip flights to Vegas and a two-night hotel stay. Not to mention, the winner also will receive a guitar signed by Stone Sour.
When conditions deteriorate at shows, sometimes it can be a bit of a free-for-all, and that's what happened in Little Rock, Ark., this past Saturday (Aug. 18) at Edgefest VIII, when several fans took advantage of the rain-soaked ground from earlier in the day and started tossing mud clumps at the acts playing onstage.
Staind vocalist Aaron Lewis will host a charity golf tournament in Bernardson, Mass., on Saturday, Aug. 11. The inaugural Aaron Lewis Invitational Charity Golf Tournament will be held at the Crumpin-Fox Golf Club. Lewis and his wife Vanessa started the It Takes a Community Foundation, and proceeds from this tournament will benefit the R.H. Conwell Community Education Center in Worthington, Mass.
Aaron Lewis has taken time away from Staind in the past, but the fact that the group is calling their upcoming break a "hiatus" initially raised a few eyebrows, especially given that they finished their last album with longtime drummer Jon Wysocki leaving the band.
Staind arrived on the scene in 1999 and enjoyed some moderate success, but were primarily known for being signed by Fred Durst, who also co-produced their debut disc. So when 2001's 'Break the Cycle' album came along, it was time for the band to stand on their own.
It’s hard to believe that throughout their 17-year career together, Staind have never released an official live disc, but all that changes this summer when ‘Live From Mohegan Sun’ makes its debut in several formats. The CD version will be available on July 10 followed by the DVD/Blu-ray out on Aug. 14.
