Black Stone Cherry is an American rock band formed in 2001 in Edmonton, Kentucky. They are signed to Roadrunner Records.

Adelitas Way is a hard rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada that broke into mainstream in 2009 for their song "Invincible", which is the official theme song for WWE Superstars on WGN America.

Emphatic is a rock band with songs you will not forget! Emphatic hit the studio in April with producer Howard Benson (Three Days Grace, Daughtry, 10 Years, Theory of a Deadman, Halestorm, Skillet) to record their Atlantic Records debut.

You may have been apart of the MADNESS last August as Shinedown stopped by the Toyota Center for an epic event that was filmed for their live CD/DVD "Somewhere in the Stratosphere". The CD/DVD is available in stores now.

No dates set up yet in the NW or the west coast for that reason, so keep your eyes peeled to the concert calendar and as soon as we get those dates we'll let you know.
