Rob Zombie, The Used, Bring Me the Horizon to headline Las Rageous 2019

Rob Zombie, Bring Me the Horizon, and The Used are just some of the bands heading to Las Vegas in October for the third annual Las Rageous music festival. On Tuesday (June 11), festival organizers unveiled the lineup for this year’s multi-day event.

Joining Zombie, The Used, and Bring Me the Horizon on the roster will be Chevelle, I Prevail, Dance Gavin Dance, Atreyu, Sleeping with Sirens, Beartooth, Fever 333, Whitechapel, While She Sleeps, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, He is Legend, The Hu, Shvpes, and more.

“This city has such a rich history of rock and metal music, and we are proud to continue this legacy with Las Rageous,” Live Nation Las Vegas’ Billy Conn said in a press statement.

He adds: “We are looking forward to bringing some of the world’s biggest acts to Downtown Las Vegas for the third year in a row.”

“A lot of festivals take a few years to develop loyalty in the field of tourism, but we’re seeing fans return to Las Rageous for their second or third year based on [the] quality of experience from prior years,” said Bud Pico, general manager of the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.

“Customer satisfaction significantly contributes to the social and economic benefits Las Rageous has generated for the City of Las Vegas.”

In addition to the rocking lineup, the event will also feature several new onsite activities like the Bud Light Rock & Refuel Culinary Experience featuring a wide array of dining options and an onsite wedding experience for those feeling a little romantic.

Pre-sales for previous attendees and Las Rageous subscribers begin this Wednesday, June 12, at 10 a.m. PT. For 24 hours, the price for two-day passes will be $149. After the 24-hour window closes, prices will increase to $159.

General ticket sales begin this Friday, June 14, at 10 a.m. PT.

For those feeling like going all out during this year’s event, Las Rageous will be offering two different VIP packages to choose from; the Weekend Metal VIP package and the Weekend Heavy Metal VIP package. More information about the VIP packages, lineup, and general inquiries can be found on Las Rageous’ website.

Las Rageous will return to the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center in Las Vegas during the weekend of Oct. 18 -19.

Godsmack, Fiver Finger Death Punch, Taking Back Sunday lead INKCARCERATION 2019 lineup

Godsmack, Taking Back Sunday, Five Finger Death Punch, and Shinedown are just some of the acts who will head to Ohio this summer for the second annual INKCARCERATION Music and Tattoo Festival. On Tuesday (Jan. 15), festival organizers unveiled the rock-centric roster for this year’s event.

Joining the aforementioned acts on the bill are +LIVE+, Seether, Skillet, I Prevail, Starset, Motionless in White, Red Sun Rising, Fozzy, Buckcherry, POD, Andrew W.K., the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and more. In total, over 30 bands will take over one of two stages throughout the weekend-long festivities.

In addition to the rocking lineup, the music festival will also include over 70 booths of local and regional tattoo artists. The list of tattoo artists who will be attending this year’s event can be found here. For those who are interested in getting a tattoo during the three-day event, all you need to do is select the artist you would like to work with and schedule an appointment. Simple as that.

If music and tattoos weren’t enough to get you excited, organizers also revealed that attendees can experience Escape From Blood Prison, the annual Halloween haunted house attraction hosted at the Ohio State Reformatory during the months of September, October, and November. This year, the attraction will give attendees the opportunity to experience the frights and sights in early July.

“It’s an honor to be able to open the doors of Blood Prison a couple of months early and give the guests of INKCARCERATION a few scares in July! The warden, his family and the Blood Prison inmates are all excited to meet the fans at INKCARCERATION,” says Vic Amesquita, manager of Blood Prison.

But music, tattoos, and haunted houses are not the only chilling attractions INKCARCERATION will offer this year. Organizers also revealed that attendees can take part in self-guided tours of the historic Ohio State Reformatory, home of the “Shawshank Prison,” during the music festival. According to the festival’s website, the complete, immersive tour should take roughly an hour and a half, so it may be wise to plan accordingly.

“Building off such a strong inaugural year, we are so stoked to give our fans even more in year two,” begins a press statement from the music festival’s promoters.

“With Billboard chart-topping bands such as Shinedown, Godsmack and Five Finger Death Punch leading the way, tattoo artists from around the globe, and the historic backdrop of the haunted Shawshank Prison, INKCARCERATION 2019 will be the don’t miss rock event of the summer in the Midwest!”

INKCARCERATION 2019 will take place at the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio during the weekend of July 12-14. Tickets for the music festival are currently available here.

Watch I Prevail overrun an arcade in ‘Rise’

I Prevail are back to close the book on their Lifelines era with one last music video. On Tuesday (May 15), the Michigan-founded band unleashed the music video for their fan-favorite track, “Rise.” The three-and-a-half minute clip begins with a zoomed out shot of a white van parked in the middle of a deserted parking lot. The shot switches to the four guys sitting inside of the van as they are about to put on some ultra-cheesy clown masks. Even though someone decides they don’t want to participate, they go forward with their still-unknown plan.

At first, it appears like they are about to rob a bank or some sort of store, but it turns out that they are making their way towards a grimy, desolate building. Once they enter the building, they hand over some cash and make their way into an old-school arcade.

Surrounded by children, the guys don’t care as they start to wreak havoc. They take the kids’ tickets, push them out of games, try to steal the prizes, and even cheat at Skeetball (in their defense, it is a hard game). That’s about the time when the kids decide to join forces for a full mutiny.

“We knew we wanted to create a video for ‘Rise’ very early on in the making of Lifelines,” lead/guitarist Steve Menoian explains.

“The song is an anthem about the competition and dedication that comes with overcoming obstacles and achieving goals. During our first year of touring, we spent almost every day off at Dave & Busters. This was partly because we couldn’t afford hotels or fancy restaurants, but mostly because we found ourselves having to compete with each other at every turn, no matter how petty or small the stakes.

It’s just part of who we are. This video will give you a front row seat to our over competitiveness and a window into our darker sense of humor. The entire process of making this video allowed us to travel back in time and remember how much we love what we do and how we wouldn’t want to be doing this without each other and our fans.”

Watch the music video for “Rise” above.

“Rise” is featured on I Prevail’s debut album Lifelines. The record was released back in 2016. In support of the album’s release, the band has been touring nonstop for the past two years. Currently, they are in the middle of wrapping up a mid-western tour which will find them performing at select venues and several music festivals including WIXO Spring Fling in Illinois, Rock on the Range in Ohio, and Rocklahoma in Oklahoma. I Prevail’s current tour schedule can be seen below.

I PREVAIL TOUR DATES:

May 18 – WIXO Spring Fling – Peoria, IL
May 19 – Lafayette Theater – Lafayette, IN

May 26 – Dos Equis Pavillion – Dallas, TX

Vans Warped Tour reveals 2017 lineup

After months of waiting, the lineup for the 2017 incarnation of the Vans Warped Tour has been announced. On Wednesday (March 22), the annual summertime traveling music festival unleashed its lineup which, as always, was met with a lot of mixed reactions. Some potential attendees have labeled it the “best lineup ever” (excuse us, have you see the lineup from 2004 or 2005 ?) while others have said that it might be the worst lineup ever. No matter what your outlook on the lineup is, we can all agree that there is a little for everyone who may attend.

This year’s lineup will include a combination of older/Warped veteran bands as well as some up-and-coming artists. Goldfinger, Anti-Flag, Hawthorne Heights, Save Ferris, Silverstein, American Authors, Bowling for Soup, Streetlight Manifesto, I Prevail, Dance Gavin Dance, GWAR, Blessthefall, Too Close to Touch, Nevershoutnever, New Year’s Day, Neck Deep, and many, many more are set to hit the road this summer. Tickets for all the show are currently available on the Warped Tour’s website here. The complete lineup for Warped Tour 2017 can be seen below while the complete itinerary for the summer punk-rock summer camp can be seen here.

Sadly, it appears as if there will be one massive change to this year’s tour; free parental tickets will no longer be offered. For the past 21 years, the music festival has provided free tickets for parents who do not trust their kids to go to the show alone, so long as the kid has a purchased ticket. In a press statement, festival organizers revealed that in hopes of going back to their “counter-culture roots” and booking a more “balanced lineup including many legacy acts” they will no longer need to offer free parent tickets; hopefully, the parents would want to come see the acts.

Earlier this summer, the Californian four-piece hit the road with I the Mighty and Movements on their “Misadventures” tour. During the trek, the band played their brand new album, Misadventures, in full; the only time, according to frontman Vic Fuentes, that such a thing would be done.

“We wanted to celebrate our new album by putting on a once in a lifetime performance for our fans and offer them something that we’ve never done in the past. Playing an album live in its entirety is a rare and unique experience,” Fuentes had said in a statement. “It’s special because it usually only happens once, and then it’s gone forever. We look forward to sharing these new songs and seeing everyone at the shows.”

Misadventures is the much-anticipated follow-up to the group’s massively successful 2012 release, Collide with the Sky.

Fearless Records to Re-Release ‘Punk Goes Pop Volume 6’

Fearless Records released the newest edition of their Punk Goes… series back in October, and now the record label has revealed plans to re-release the record this Summer.

The Punk Goes Pop Volume 6 reissue will include all of the tracks that were on the original release such as August Burns Red’s cover of “Wrecking Ball,” Knuckle Puck’s cover of “Chocolate,” State Champs’ cover of “Stay The Night,” and many more.

The difference with this new version of the record is the inclusion of three additional tracks that were not found on the 2014 release. The three additional tracks are: PVRIS’ cover of Sia’s “Chandelier,” Ice Nine Kill’s version of Maroon 5’s “Animals,” and lastly, I Prevail’s take on Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space.”

Check out the video for I Prevail’s cover of “Blank Space” below.

The Punk Goes Pop Volume 6 re-release will be available, digitally, on June 23.
