Shinedown To Headline 2012 Avalanche Tour – Enter to Win Tickets
Avalanche Tour is back and Shinedown are set to headline the massive spring trek along with support from acts Adelitas Way, New Medicine and Art of Dying. Moreover, Loudwire is giving away two tickets to any Avalanche show of your choice (see below for more details).
With the release of their new album ‘Amaryllis’ due out March 27, Shinedown’s headlining stint on the Avalanche tour kicks off the same date of the record’s release in Anaheim, Calif.
Frontman Brent Smith talks about the new album by saying, “I’ve always seen Shinedown as its own entity. He goes on to say “this living thing that’s been growing and developing and evolving over the past 10 years. During the recording, the vision of what Shinedown is and where it’s going became completely clear. ‘Amaryllis’ is the manifestation of that vision, the centerpiece of what Shinedown is.”
“It reflects on everything we’ve done and where we’re heading. It’s a message of empowerment, perseverance, and inspiration that I think speaks to fans that have been with us since the beginning as well as those who are just learning about who we are and what we’re about. I can’t wait for the world to hear it.”
New Medicine will serve as support from March 27 to April 10 while Art of Dying will open up the show starting on April 12 to April 25.
We’re giving away a copy of Shinedown’s new album, ‘Amaryllis,’ and two tickets to any one show on the Avalanche tour of your choice (travel expenses not provided). Enter to win by following @loudwire on Twitter and re-tweeting the announcement of the giveaway. You must enter by 11:59PM ET on Feb. 28, 2012. We’ll choose one winner at random. Good luck!
