When it came time to choose the artwork for their fourth album, "Erase the Pain", Palisades landed on an image of the Ouroboros: an ancient symbol depicting a serpent eating its own tail, speaking to an infinite cycle of destruction and rebirth.

“The idea behind this whole album is that we all experience so much pain in life, but it’s always possible come out the other side and find happiness,” says Miceli. “You don’t have to be a prisoner to whatever’s happened in your past—you can choose to start over again, and become something new.”

The most thrillingly intense release yet from Palisades, Erase the Pain is pure catharsis in album form. To fully capture their raw outpouring of emotion, the New Jersey-based band joined forces with Howard Benson (the super-producer known for his work with everyone from My Chemical Romance to Three Days Grace).

Recording at Benson’s studio in L.A., Palisades pushed their sound to bold new heights, delivering an album built on brutal but beautiful riffs, wildly thrashing rhythms, and soaring vocals that relentlessly channel the hurt and fury within each lyric.

At the same time, Erase the Pain finds Palisades achieving a greater sophistication in their endlessly melodic take on post-hardcore. To that end, the band embedded the album with inventive flourishes like hip-hop-inspired beats, as well as intricate textures crafted with the help of Benson’s extensive collection of synths.

From Ashes to New
Friday, August 2nd, 2019 - Iron Horse Saloon

Ultimately, From Ashes to New’s message is true to life, raw, and genuine. Their music is a testament to positive inspiration for the people of the world that they, too, can take risks and not settle into an expected life of mediocrity.

"We are only regular if we make ourselves regular. We are what we tell ourselves we are," Matt says. "Some of our fans tell us they feel things are hopeless and I tell them, 'You have to believe in yourself before anyone else can.'

Multi-platinum American rockers, HINDER, continue to drive a career of longevity that few bands achieve. Their stats resonate just that, selling over 4 million albums and 10 million singles, garnering north of 150 million video views, and passing the 100 million streams mark. Throw on top the endless energy HINDER has brought to over 15 headlining tours and you can see why they are still rocking long since their formation in 2001.

August 11th of 2017 brought another career highlight. The release of their 6th Studio album, coincidently titled THE REIGN, on The End Records/BMG. This would be their 3rd release with the New York based record label, preceded by HINDER’s first ever acoustic EP STRIPPED on May 13, 2016. Their 5th full-length studio album When The Smoke Clears entered the Billboard 200 while also claiming four other Top 10 chart positions upon its on May 12, 2015.

As one of the few rock bands to grab massive cross-over success, HINDER’s 2005 debut album, Extreme Behavior, climbed to #6 on the Billboard 200 chart and was the 2nd Top Rock Album. Get Stoned would be the album’s first radio single, climbing to a #4 mainstream rock spot. What followed would end up being one of the biggest songs of the year, Lips of an Angel, which peaked within the top 10 across several Billboard singles charts, including #1 at Top 40 and Pop 100. Extreme Behavior has since been certified 3x Platinum. Their hometown inducted them into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame in 2007. In 2008 their sophomore effort, Take It To The Limit, surpassed their debut by peaking at #4 on the Billboard 200 and hitting the Mainstream Rock chart at #3 with single Use Me. This solidified HINDER as the biggest new breakout rock act and catapulting them into packed arenas worldwide with the likes of Aerosmith, Mötley Crüe, Nickelback, 3 Doors Down, Papa Roach, and many others. HINDER proved consistent record hit making by following up with a #1 Top Modern Rock/Alternative Album, All American Nightmare (LP 3), and a #3 Top Hard Rock Album, Welcome To The Freakshow (LP 5).

Naughty By Nature
Saturday, August 3rd, 2019 - Iron Horse Saloon

The Grammy Award winning, Platinum-album selling, New Jersey super-group, Naughty By Nature, has a twenty-year track record of creating the hits and party anthems that have become the soundtrack to our lives. Their music has smashed through mainstream barriers all while remaining true to the sound, message and grit of the hood. And now, these three kings of the Hip-Hop anthem have formally claimed their titles with the 20th Anniversary album, Anthem Inc.

Life is good. Treach, Vin Rock and DJ Kay Gee kep doing what they do best: creating undeniably classic, hand- raising, life-affirming, Hip-Hop music. “We wouldn’t have reunited if we didn’t think we could give people that authentic Naughty feeling,” says the group’s master lyricist Treach. “This new album is definitely gonna take you back, but just like we always did, we’ve invented a new sound, a bunch of new flows and after being without an album for so long, we’ve gotta lotta things to say.”

Few groups in music can boast a twenty-year career that has been both consistent and history making. Naughty By Nature, initially called New Style, began performing at talent shows and were discovered by fellow New Jersey native and then-emerging Hip-Hop artist, Queen Latifah. Eventually signing the group to her management company Flavor Unit Management, Latifah helped them land a deal with Tommy Boy Records.

Naughty By Nature’s self-titled debut album was released in 1991 and quickly assaulted the music charts with the instant classic #1 hit “O.P.P.” The group quickly became crossover stars, while maintaining their ghetto sensibility. To date, their success and longevity as a Hip-Hop group has been unparalleled. The trio went on to produce their follow-up albums that have become part of America’s Hip- Hop legacy: 19 Naughty III (1993), Poverty’s Paradise (1995) and Nature’s Fury (1999).

Inevitably, a break-up in 1999 would lead to the group members each following different, yet equally successful, personal endeavors. As a producer, Kay Gee went onto produce award winning music with artists including: Luther Vandross, Notorious B.I.G, Jaheim, Next and Zhane. As an actor, Treach found success in film and television offering critically acclaimed performances in HBO’s original series The Sopranos and OZ, along with Jason’s Lyric, Soul Food, the Hip-Hop cult-classic Juice and several other films.

As the marketing genius behind the group, Vin Rock developed Naughty Gear, one of the first Hip-Hop inspired clothing lines. When he got a hold of the worldwide web, he mastered it with, further developing and expanding the reach of the Naughty brand. Throughout this time, Treach and Vin Rock continued to tour and perform around the world. In 2002, the duo struck a deal with TVT Records and produced their last album, IIcons.

Fast forward to 2008... After years of steady touring and itching to get back in the studio, both Treach and Vin agreed, that in order for the next album to have that authentic sound and feel of Naughty By Nature, they must reunite with DJ Kay Gee. At this same time, VH1 bestowed their coveted “Hip-Hop Honor” to the group as innovators of our culture. Joining the ranks of Big Daddy Kane, Rakim and Eazy E., the group received their “HipHop Honors” in October of 2008.

The group continues to tour globally, ripping stages from Australia to Canada and New Jersey to South Africa. Naughty By Nature is on their A-game and have no plans to stop anytime soon.

The Boston hard rockers will shine down from the Wolfman Jack Stage Sunday, Aug. 4, 2019 after the Buffalo Chip TT American Flat Track Grand National Championship Races as part of the Chip’s annual Moto Stampede® event series. Godsmack shook the hard rock world to its knees with their debut album in 1998, and have remained one of the genre’s powerful forces ever since. The band is weeks away from embarking on a massive tour of Europe and North America in support of their newest album, ”When Legends Rise.” These four titans of post-grunge hard rock will lay the smack down on Sturgis Rally concert-goers with hits like “Voodoo,” “I Stand Alone,” and “Cryin’ Like a Bitch,” “1000 hp” and “Bulletproof” in addition to modern heavy interpretations of classics by Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Joe Walsh, and Pink Floyd.

Put on your hard hats and put up your dukes, because when Godsmack brings the smack back to the Chip, it’ll feel like you’ve absorbed a nuclear blast of hard rock energy.

Revenge of the 80s
Sunday, August 4th, 2019 - Glencoe Camp Resort

Glencoe Camp Resort

It's a NERD ALERT!! 

Created coincidentally (or accidentally) from a big bang, Revenge of the 80s  (R.O.T. 80’s) was spawned from each of their parent’s drinking a deadly combination of toxic stream water while eating bologna sandwiches.

The band itself came about from a failed university lab experiment where  N 20 gas (laughing gas) was released inadvertently, causing the 6 members to bust out a hilarious rendition of Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up. The group immediately realized they formed a bond. BUT, not just any bond, but one as strong as a covalent bond. Their love of synth pop joined them in unison as they quickly discovered the chemistry they shared. Reminiscing about the times they were stuffed into lockers or hilariously toilet papered then duct taped to the locker room wall.

The group knew they had a purpose. To get out there and share their love of synth pop with the world and express to them how Nerd Power is contagious! Revenge of the 80’s brings power synth pop to everyone and leaves audiences smiling while singing all night long!

From coke bottle glasses, to the classic shorts, suspenders and knee-highsocks, Revenge of the 80s  (R.O.T 80'S) warps you back to a time when nerds and synth pop went hand in hand. Revenge of the 80s  belts out all of your favorite ear worm hits of the era, all the while hilariously tickling your funny bone!  With everything from The B-52’s, Duran Duran, Cyndi Lauper, Devo and more!! R.O.T. 80's will leave you singing these hits for days! Try to shake them from your brain....BET YOU CAN'T!! It's fun! It's exciting! It's HILARIOUS!!!

Revenge of the 80s  is suited for all ages and venues alike!

Commitment to forward motion ensures longevity.

After 20-plus years, ten full-length releases, countless sold out shows, and over one million albums sold worldwide, Nonpoint endure through sustaining an unbreakable bond among themselves and to a diehard fan base all over the globe.

On 2018’s aptly titled tenth offering, X [Spinefarm Records], the quintet—Elias Soriano [vocals], Robb Rivera [drums], Rasheed Thomas [guitar], Adam Woloszyn [bass], and B.C. Kochmit [guitar]—not only maintain the momentum, but also amplify the intensity. Signature grooves hit with haymaker force bolstered by hip-hop cadences, thrashed-out six-string precision, and unshakable melodies.

Reaching this milestone, time increased the hunger they shared.

“As long as people want us to keep writing records, we’re going to keep writing records,” exclaims Rivera. “We have a special understanding in the studio, and the chemistry has only gotten better. We live for every moment on stage. We don’t want to ever stop

Red Sun Rising
Sunday, August 4th, 2019 - Iron Horse Saloon

Rock music should be built to last. Since its genesis, the genre has been all about longevity not a “flavor of the month” or a “flash in the pan.” Whether you go back to the seventies or nineties pillars, the goal was to create something that can be lived with for a lifetime. It still can be that way.

Akron, Ohio’s Red Sun Rising—Mike Protich [vocals/guitar], Ryan Williams [guitar], Tyler Valendza [guitar], and Ricky Miller [bass/vocals]—proudly carry on that tradition with their full-length debut, Polyester Zeal [Razor & Tie].

“It’s not today’s rock, but it’s a new alternative,” declares singer and guitarist Mike Protich. “We want to uphold the foundation with subtle nuances of what’s familiar. It’s fresh because we’re telling our story through that framework.”

Sharing that story has been the goal since first breaking onto the scene in 2012. Akron is no stranger to rock ‘n’ roll, serving as home to everybody from Black Keys and Devo to Chrissie Hynde. That buzzing industrial landscape remains fertile ground for musicians to this day.

“A lot of people don’t realize that Akron’s a really cool, artsy community,” says Mike. “There’s great food, local beers, and culture. Because it’s somewhat off the national grid, there’s a real tightknit music scene. We spawned off of that. There are a lot of factories around and the grit seeps into the music too.”

The work ethic is another trait Red Sun Rising embrace. Through tireless gigging, they built up an impressive local fan base, soon attracting the attention of multiple labels. Razor & Tie rushed to Akron in the Fall of 2014 and signed the band following a sold out hometown show.

“I guess we played well that night,” chuckles Mike.

The band headed to Los Angeles shortly after to cut Polyester Zeal with celebrated producer Bob Marlette [Black Sabbath, Shinedown, Seether]. They managed to siphon the pure, potent, powerful guitar chemistry, towering vocals, and muscular rhythms into the record’s 11 tracks with all of the “grit” intact.

Sunday, August 4th, 2019 - Iron Horse Saloon

Welcome Home, the eagerly anticipated new album featuring the late Vinnie Paul’s final recordings, will unleash 10 tracks, driven by their love, loyalty, reverence and respect for their fallen brother, including the first fiery song, “333,” recently released. Watch the official music video here.

As bassist Kyle Sanders so succinctly stated: “While Vinnie Paul is obviously irreplaceable, one thing we can’t not do is tour. As easy as it would be to say we’re not going on the road, we have to. Vinnie would be extremely disappointed in us if we didn’t promote this record properly. He’d be pissed off at all of us for putting all this work into finishing the record and then just letting it sit there on the shelf while we put a couple of songs to radio and whatever…and we know that.”

The latest 18-city headlining summer outing will kick off on Tuesday, July 23, in Atlanta, and will culminate in a special hometown celebration on Saturday, August 17, in Dallas, Texas. Full routing below.

Tickets with VIP packages are available for purchase beginning Tuesday, May 14, at 10:00AM local time here. Fan club pre-sales begin on Tuesday, May 14, at 10:00AM local time here. On-sale to the general public begins Friday, May 17, at 10:00AM local time. In honor of Vinnie Paul, HELLYEAH will donate $1 from each ticket sold on the tour to the American Heart Association.

HELLYEAH was formed in 2006 by Pantera founder/drummer Vinnie Paul, singer Chad Gray (Mudvayne), and guitarist Tom Maxwell (Nothingface) with bassist Kyle Sanders (Bloodsimple) and guitarist Christian Brady, who joined in 2014. The band has released five albums, culminating in the #2 Hard Rock album release UNDEN!ABLE in June 2016. Their final album with Vinnie Paul, Welcome Home – a truly stunning album that does both Vinnie’s memory and groundbreaking legacy proud – is slated for release on Friday, September 27.

Chris Hawkey
Monday, August 5th, 2019 - Iron Horse Saloon

Chris Hawkey, the self-described luckiest man in the world, was born and raised In Union City, a small town that rests on the state-line that separates Ohio from Indiana. He spent his youth competing in a wide variety of sports while dreaming of seeing the world through the windows of a tour bus. Having joined his first band at the age of 15, Chris began his pursuit of “the dream” while still in high school, playing “every bar and city festival within a 100 mile radius”.

After graduating from Mississinawa Valley High School, Chris attended a broadcasting school in Dayton, Ohio with the idea of pursuing a career in radio while continuing to chase his musical dreams. The radio business would take him from Ohio to Indiana to Virginia, and then to his current home state of Minnesota. It would also lead him to Kim, his wife of 22 years with whom he has two children, Alex and Abigail. As his broadcasting career flourished, Hawkey continued to perform with various bands on evenings and weekends while also releasing two well-received solo rock records in the early 2000s.

The Sisterhood Band
Monday, August 5th, 2019 - Iron Horse Saloon

The Sisterhood are an organic blend of the open melodies of classic West Coast folk & and the magnetic swagger of timeless rock n' roll, powered by Alyssa and Ruby's soaring richly textured harmonies and effortless chemistry. Both ladies have strong musical DNA. Alyssa is the daughter of Kathie Baillie & Michael Bonagura (the core of country band Baillie & The Boys) and Ruby's father is rock icon Rod Stewart.

The pair met through a group of musical friends while both working on their solo careers. Immediately bonding over growing up in the music business and sharing a mutual love and idolization of folk goddess Joni Mitchell, it wasn't obvious to them that their friendship should turn professional until they were jamming on some Joni songs backstage after seeing a Rod Stewart gig together. He listened to their glistening harmonies of a song or two and told them "You two should start a band."

After only a year of knowing each other, the duo are capturing attention immediately all over the globe, and recently signed their first record deal with Sony Music Nashville on stage at their 3rd & Lindsley show. They've written and recorded their first EP which features the theme song “Tenderize My Heart” for the Stewarts & Hamilton's show on E!, performed at Fashion Weeks in Milan and Miami, landed a slot on the main stage at CMC music festival in Australia, opened for Gary Clark Jr. & Steven Tyler, made guest appearances at Rod Stewart's Vegas show at Caesar's palace and were the opening act on Sir Rod's summer and winter stadium tour, while headlining their first club tour in the U.K. After making their Grand Ole Opry Debut on the eve of the historic solar eclipse, the girls are currently recording and producing their debut album in Nashville, TN.

Their meeting was happenstance, but the music they create together can only mean that nothing is ever truly coincidence. Voices of sirens, lyrics of poets; these two musical heirs are soul sisters are messengers of the music in their hearts. Two very different worlds colliding with one common thread makes the music they create one of a kind. Fresh sounds, haunting melodies, and signature voices are what set The Sisterhood apart from any other female group in today's popular music.

Jamey Johnson
Monday, August 5th, 2019 - Iron Horse Saloon

Eleven-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson is “one of the greatest country singers of our time,” according to the Washington Post. He is one of only a few people in the history of country music to win two Song of the Year Awards from both the CMA and ACMs.

His 2008 album, That Lonesome Song, was certified platinum for 1 million in sales, and his 2010 ambitious double album, The Guitar Song, received a gold certification.

In addition, he won two Song of the Year Trophies, for “Give It Away” and “In Color,” both from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association. He has received tremendous praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone,

The Wall Street Journal and other publications, many of which have hailed his albums as masterpieces.

In 2012, the Alabama native released his fifth studio album, a tribute project to late songwriter Hank Cochran. The Grammy-nominated Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran paired him with Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Ray Price, Elvis Costello, George Strait, Vince Gill and Merle Haggard.

In 2013, the Nashville Scene’s 13th annual Country Music Critics’ Poll named it the year’s best album. (Two years earlier, the same poll named Johnson’s The Guitar Song as the year's best album, and Johnson himself as best male vocalist, best songwriter and artist of the year.)

Hairball is more than just a band, and certainly more than a tribute band!
A band puts on a concert - Hairball puts on an event! Hairball is a Rock & Roll experience you won't soon forget.

Vocalists Joe, Kris and Bobby lead the band through a 2+ hour, mind-blowing, and drop- dead accurate homage to some of the biggest arena acts in the world. Van Halen, KISS, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey, and Aerosmith are but a few of the acts fans will see brought to life. The Hairball stage becomes an entirely new rock concert before your very eyes countless times throughout the night.

The motor that drives the Hairball dragster consists of Freaky on the electric bass, Billy on the drums, and Happy on the lead guitar. These Rock & Roll soldiers pride themselves on nailing some of the most memorable licks and chops of all time, while adding their own style and flare that they've cultivated over decades of tireless performing. This isn’t a side job. These guys eat, sleep and breathe Rock & Roll!

As important to Hairball as the music, are its fans. While many bands claim to have the best fans in the world, Hairball actually has! Whether they are 10 years old or 100, Hairball fans bring an unparalleled enthusiasm and energy to the show that enhances the arena experience. Hairball knows it wouldn't exist without its fans and takes every opportunity to let them know that. Whether it's a pre-show meet and greet, hanging out at the merch booth, or chatting online, Hairball has a lot in common with its fans and it's always a good time when they get together.
Don't confuse Hairball with the countless "80's Tribute" bands across the country. Hairball is an experience, an attitude, and expression of music that isn't simply a retro flashback. It's a way of life, and it's not going anywhere soon!

Prepare for a rock, rap and racing extravaganza that’ll raise the dead!

When you join the frenzied hordes of hard rock-addicted racing fanatics in a unified head-banging mass of unbridled energy, you’ll know it’s no theory that hard rock music and motorcycle racing go together better than whiskey and coke. And that’s exactly what will happen when Theory of a Deadman takes the stage on Wednesday, Aug. 7 between bar-banging Super Hooligan Flat Track Racing and a headlining performance from Snoop Dogg as part of the Chip’s annual Moto Stampede® event series.

The multiplatinum-selling Canada-based quartet’s mixture of alternative metal, post grunge, and smatterings of country and acoustic have earned them ten Top 10 Hits on the US Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and three No.1 hits.

Lose your mind to rockin’ bangers like “Bad Girlfriend,” genre-melding anthems like “Rx (Medicate),” ethereal ballads like “Angel,” and catchy party earworms like “Bitch Came Back,” to name a few.

When August 7 comes around, will you be running amok with your fellow hooligans, rocking your freaking brains out at the Best Party Anywhere, or will you be staring slack jawed into your smartphone, pinning gnocchi recipes to your “Pasta Grannies” board on your Pinterest account? Rage like a champion and reserve your passes now!

He’s a visionary, a trailblazer and a certified party liaison with a 25-year-long pedigree of certified dance floor-rockin’, chart-topping hits. He’s never done things any other way than his own. And while he’s about done it all, he’s never seen anything quite like the Chip.

Snoop Dogg will drop his fire-hot rhymes from the Wolfman Jack Stage on Wednesday, Aug. 7, and when he’s done the only thing you’ll be able to say was, “Dizzamn, that was Tha Shiznit!”

In 1994, Sevendust first forged a familial tie amongst each other that translated into one of the most diehard audiences in the game. To this day, the connection between fans and the GRAMMY® Award-nominated gold-certified hard rock outfit only grows stronger. For their twelfth full-length and first release for Rise Records All I See Is War, the quintet—Lajon Witherspoon [lead vocals], Clint lowery [lead guitar, backing vocals], John Connolly [rhythm guitar, backing vocals], Vince Hornsby [bass], and Morgan Rose [drums]—did the best thing they could possibly do to combat all of the division in the streets and on social media; they went and made a Sevendust record—just bigger, ballsier, and bolder than before.

A trifecta of now-classic gold albums—Sevendust [1997], Home [1999], and Animosity [2001]— ignited their journey. Known as an equally intense and unforgettable live force, they’ve consistently packed houses around the world and decimated stages everywhere from Rock on the Range and Woodstock to OZZfest and Shiprocked! 2015’s Kill The Flaw represented a high watermark. Bowing at #13 on the Billboard Top 200, it scored their highest debut on the respective chart since 2010 and marked their fifth consecutive Top 10 on the Top Rock Albums Chart and third straight Top 3 on the Hard Rock Albums Chart. Most impressively, the lead single “Thank You” garnered a nomination in the category of “Best Metal Performance” at the 2016 GRAMMY® Awards, a career first. All I See Is War represents yet another new beginning.

If you're not pissed off, then you're not paying attention. Ded thrives on the aggressive spirit that is authentic to the heavy music genre. "There is an honesty and attitude about heavy music that I don't feel as often anymore" says lead singer Joe Cotela – "and we want to bring that back". Ded is loud and aggressive - but it serves as a positive outlet: the band produces an unapologetic sound that draws from the art of fantasy and expressive screams. Their debut album "Mis-An-thrope" was released on 7/21/17.

Ded was born in the music scene of Phoenix, Arizona and has been together for almost 3 years. Band members Joe Cotela (Vocals), David Ludlow (Guitar), Kyle Koelsch (Bass), and Matt Reinhard (Drums) developed a friendship and ultimately a musical partnership that mixes horror and dark imagery to develop a familiar, yet unique sound that sets them apart from other bands. Cotela says “With our music - we want to make the listener feel like how you feel after you’ve watched a really good horror movie – on edge, jittery… And very much alive”. They incorporate these volatile elements into their lyrics – with the hopes that it will breathe new life into the hard-core genre. Imagine an inspired take on outward thinking that transcends screaming, and low tuned riffs. Their sound is meant to “be in your face and tell it like it is”, while paying homage to Korn and Pantera, who served as early inspirations. Ded are also influenced by more recent bands like Slipknot and Bring Me The Horizon. This is modern hard rock & alternative metal that goes beyond anger - including themes like existentialism and ego in everyday life. The lyrics are timely and resonate with an audience navigating the chaotic world we live in.

The band’s work ethic, drive, and dedication led them to record an EP that quickly made the rounds of the music industry, and started a buzz that opened doors. Using that as a springboard, the band hit the road and toured with Beartooth, Asking Alexandria, Atreyu, Every Time I Die, Upon a Burning Body, The Acacia Strain, John 5, Powerman 5000, and Insane Clown Posse among others.

Their touring helped grow awareness in the business and brought them to the attention of producer John Feldmann (Disturbed, Blink-182, Beartooth). Their collaboration with Feldmann culminated in the band signing with Jordan Schur @ Suretone Records – who discovered and grew the careers of platinum rock acts Staind and Limp Bizkit, among others. Suretone released their first song and video for “FMFY” in December 2016.

2017 was very busy year for Ded - they played all Major Rock U.S. festivals, played more than 150 live shows and toured 25 + dates with KORN and Stone Sour. Both of their 1st two singles "Anti-Everything" and "Remember The Enemy" reached the Top 20 on the Active Rock Radio charts. "Anti-Everything" was #8 on SiriusXM Octane's Top 10 for 2017 and they named the band "Artist Discovery of the Year". "Anti-Everything" & "Remember The Enemy" were featured on high profile curated Hard Rock & Metal playlists at all major streaming services including Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Amazon Music, Youtube, and Google Play Music. The video for "Anti-Everything" has more than 1.4 million views on Youtube. The band is repped by CAA for booking.

They have just released their 3rd single "Hate Me" and it's already in Power Rotation on SiriusXM Octane, has cracked the Top 40 @ Active Rock Radio after only 5 weeks and has been added to key playlists including Spotify's "Rock Hard", Apple Music's "Breaking Hard Rock", Amazon Music's "Fresh Rock" and "Introducing Rock", Pandora "New Rock" and Google Play Music's "Hard Rock Hotlist".

Corrosion of Conformity
Friday, August 9th, 2019 - Iron Horse Saloon

Corrosion of Conformity are reuniting with guitarist/vocalist Pepper Keenan for UK/European and North American dates. Other than a few surprise appearances, this will be the first time Keenan has toured with the band since 2006. This will also be the first time the "Deliverance" lineup of the group has played together since 2001.

C.O.C. recently emerged from hibernation as a trio and released 2012's eponymous album and 2014's "IX" to wide acclaim, but many have been eagerly awaiting the return of Pepper Keenan.

The band were originally an influential hardcore punk/heavy metal crossover act before reaching critical success with a new lineup on 1991's "Blind" album. That trajectory continued with wider appeal as Keenan took over as primary vocalist on "Deliverance" (1994) and "Wiseblood" (1996).

These two recordings in particular fused the raw energy of the previous albums with some great strides forward in classic rock inspired songwriting and more spacious production and execution, which were often copied but rarely equalled.

This juggernaut gained mass and momentum with relentless touring alongside Metallica, Clutch, Eyehategod and many more.

Eventually following "In the Arms of God", 2005, Keenan focused all energy on his hometown band Down.

Until now, that is.

Recent internet chatter on the subject of a reunion turns out be true.

In This Moment
Friday, August 9th, 2019 - Iron Horse Saloon

Throughout history, art rejoices and revels in the wisdom of women.

Within a deck of tarot cards, the High Priestess serves as the guardian of the unconscious. In Greek mythology, the old oracles celebrate the Mother Goddess. William Shakespeare posited portentous prescience in the form of MacBeth’s “Three Witches.” On their sixth full-length album Ritual, In This Moment—Maria Brink [vocals, piano], Chris Howorth [lead guitar], Travis Johnson [bass], Randy Weitzel [rhythm guitar], and Kent Diimel [drums]—unearth a furious and focused feminine fire from a cauldron of jagged heavy metal, hypnotic alternative, and smoky voodoo blues.

It’s an evolution. It’s a statement. It’s In This Moment 2017...
“It’s like we’re going into the next realm,” asserts Maria. “I had a conviction of feeling empowered in my life and with myself. I always write from a personal place, and I needed to share that sense of strength. I’ve never been afraid to hold back. Sometimes, I can be very suggestive. However, I wanted to show our fans that this is the most powerful side of myself and it’s without overt sexuality. It’s that deeper serious fire inside of my heart.”

“What Maria is saying comes from deep inside,” Chris affirms. “This time, we had a bunch of ideas started before we hit the studio. There was a really clear direction. It’s different.”

Zakk Sabbath
Saturday, August 10th, 2019 - Buffalo Chip

Assemble your crew of head-banging hellions and get ready to thrust your metal horns into the sky!

The heavy metal Viking Thunder God of mind-bending guitar shredding, Zakk Wylde, along with an all-star roster of metal musicians will be kicking out the sickest jams from the first six Black Sabbath albums under the moniker Zakk Sabbath!

Zakk Sabbath’s epic performance will rip open a Hole in The Sky of the Wolfman Jack Stage during the final night of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip's® 2019 motorcycle and music festival.

Longtime Ozzy Osbourne guitarist and metal guitar virtuoso Zakk Wylde leads Zakk Sabbath. Bassist, Rob “Blasko” Nicholson (Rob Zombie, Ozzy Osbourne), and drummer Joey C (Danzig, Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal) round out the rhythm section. These three accomplished musicians intermittently tour as Zakk Sabbath, shredding Black Sabbath tunes with intense passion, fury and precision. Rock your brains out to Wylde renditions of Black Sabbath classics like “War Pigs,” “Fairies Wear Boots,” “Into The Void,” “Snowblind,” “NIB,” “Supernaut,” and more until you’re screaming “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath” like a Paranoid madman at an Electric Funeral.

Reverend Horton Heat
Saturday, August 10th, 2019 - Buffalo Chip

Reverend Horton Heat to Redline the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s Grand Finale with Psychobilly Revival Bring the Heat and Party Your Face Off with the Rev! Anybody who’s ever been to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s music festival can attest to South Dakota’s toasty summer nights.

On Saturday, Aug. 10, it’ll go from balmy to straight-up incendiary when rockabilly legends Reverend Horton Heat burn up the Wolfman Jack Stage.

The Dallas, Texas-based quartet will crank the heat on the final night of the Best Party Anywhere® prior to a headlining performance by Zakk Sabbath, and you’d better have your fire extinguisher handy when they do. Reverend Horton Heat has been converting tepid audiences to fervid believers with their revelatory rock shows since their formation in 1985.

Front man and lead guitarist Jim Heath delivers their sermon of “country-fed punkabilly” with the devout candor of a rock & roll shaman whose passion for classic cars and guitars is equally apparent. His lightning-fast licks recall sounds of early American rock, blues and country icons, while also set ablaze with nitro-boosted punk rock attitude.

Jimbo Wallace’s unwavering upright bass, Arjuna "RJ" Contreras’ thundering drums, and the recent addition of Matt Jordan on piano blend with Heath’s hollowbody Gretsch to create a sound that roars like a fine-tuned hot rod. Reverend Horton Heat lives by the Gospel of Rock & Roll.

Every performance is laced with a hearty dose of dysfunctional Americana humor, and the band injects three simple commandments into the hearts of every audience–rock hard, drive fast and live true. You’ll be inspired to do the same when you hear the face-melting fretwork during the opening notes of “Psychobilly Freakout.” “Galaxy 500” humorously recounts the reality of relationships gone awry. “The Devil’s Chasing Me” will make you want to ride like Lucifer is on your tail, and “Let Me Teach You How to Eat” will have you scanning the crowd for your future ex-lover all while you boogie your brains out.

Dark Sky Choir
Saturday, August 10th, 2019 - Iron Horse Saloon

Dark Sky Choir is an original hard rock/metal band from NJ. Formed in 2016, the band originally consisted of four veterans of the local music scene, playing the classic metal music they all grew up listening to. As their local popularity increased as a tribute band, it was inevitable that they soon began writing their own music.

In late 2017, original vocalist, Hollywood How, and bassist Joe Stabile were replaced with Brian Allen and John Moyer, respectively. Allen has been the voice of various bands throughout the years, most notably as the front man for Vicious Rumors for almost a decade. Moyer is best known as the Grammy nominated bassist for the world-renowned metal group Disturbed, with whom he has recorded and toured since 2004.

Inspired by a lifetime love of metal, Dark Sky Choir brings years of live and recording experience to the stage with their own brand of hard rock and metal. Their debut album was released in 2017 and was soon followed up in March of 2018 with a brand-new, self-titled EP featuring the new lineup, as they embark on their first national tour, opening for Fozzy.

The Iowa based hard rock band SAUL is the result of a profound passion for music shared by brothers Blake and Zach Bedsaul. They always knew music would be their life and worked tirelessly to develop a sound that pushes the boundaries of modern rock music. SAUL places a great amount of focus on writing songs that mean something. Forming their sonic inspiration listening to bands like Tool, Pearl Jam, Nothing More, and Tesseract, the band went through a few lineup changes after high school, but the sound was starting to take shape. Blake and Zach had a vision and kept writing and working tirelessly until they brought that vision to life. That vision is a sound that is both modern and precise, but also chaotic and turbulent.

SAUL has now rounded out its lineup to include William McIlravy (Bass Guitar/Backup Vocals), Joe Nichols (Drums), Blake Bedsaul (Lead Vocals), and Zach Bedsaul (Lead Guitar/Backup Vocals). Everyone shares the same passion and the music reflects their chemistry as a band.

SAUL is already gaining massive amounts of attention in their home state of Iowa and beyond. Bringing in new fans with every performance, you can hear the soul of the music and get lost in its timeless, aggressive, and haunting melodies.

Set to release their debut studio effort (AEONS) in the spring 2019, SAUL isn’t holding anything back. The first single is an emotional roller coaster about death and the struggles of dealing with loss. "Brother” is the embodiment of the band and its message. It is how music should be. It's real, raw, aggressive and satiated with intent.

Front-man Blake Bedsaul states the following in regards to the new single, “Lyrically, this song defines what I should have said to my brother in his last moments. This song cuts deep for me and It’s a constant reminder that life is fleeting. Tell the people in your life that you love them.”

On January 24th, 2019 SAUL plans to announce their arrival by not just tapping you on the shoulder, but punching you in the face with their lead single, "Brother".

Keep an ear out for the track on radio airwaves nationwide.

Badflower don’t care what you think about them. They don’t care whether you get what they’re doing, because their thoroughly modern rock is more ahead of the curve than anyone else you might try and pigeonhole them with. And they really don’t care whether you like the messages in their songs, because what they sing about is important, if uncomfortable.

That attitude might seem misguided for a band who have yet to release their debut album. In this age where music’s money comes largely from touring, fans are more important than ever - they’re the ones who buy the tickets to shows and ultimately give artists the opportunity to keep playing and progressing. But the LA four-piece aren’t complete beginners - since forming in 2013, frontman Josh Katz, guitarist Joey Morrow, drummer Anthony Sonetti, and bassist Alex Espiritu have toured relentlessly across the US and beyond, building up a reputation as a formidable live force as well as an ever-growing mass of loyal followers and praise from the likes of Billboard, Forbes, and Consequence Of Sound.
