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).
It might seem unfathomable that a high-profile hard rock vocalist moonlights as a burgeoning country singer, but then again, few aggressive music singers possess the breadth and scope of talent of Staind's Aaron Lewis. He just released his brand new solo song 'Anywhere But Here,' which features twangy guitars and his inimitable, soul stirring and richly emotional vocals.
Staind are heating up radio with their hard-rocking new single ‘Eyes Wide Open’ off of their 2011 self-titled disc, and now Loudwire is proud to exclusively premiere the music video for the tune. The clip shows the band tearing up the stage in front of an energetic crowd, as frontman Aaron Lewis and company deliver the punishing track to their devoted fans.
So if you can’t make it to Rock on the Range this year, Carolina Rebellion offers up a perfect one-day alternative. Carolina Rebellion, now in its second year, takes as much rock as possible and combines it all into one crazy lineup. This year's Rebellion is scheduled for May 5 at the Rockingham Speedway in Rockingham, N.C., centrally located less than two hours from Charlotte, Raleigh/Durham, Columbia and Greensboro.
