Tour dates for the fifth incarnation of Lou Brutus' HardDrive Live tour were announced on Jan. 22, 2013. This year's tour will feature Bullet For My Valentine as the headliner with supporting artists Halestorm, Young Guns and Stars in Stereo. Dates for ticket sales have yet to be announced.
HardDrive Live 5 will commence on April 12 at the Fillmore in Denver and conclude at Milwaukee's historic Eagle's Ballroom at The Rave on May 22. The tour will include dates on both coasts and will feature a stop in Canada at Sound Academy in Toronto on May 7. Unfortunately, the tour will entirely miss the Southeastern U.S. unless additional dates are added.
Bullet For My Valentine are preparing to release new music, "Temper Temper" on Feb. 12. Their fourth effort will be their first new music since "Fever" was released in 2010. They were also featured on the UPROAR Music Festival main stage in 2011. Pre-sale ticket codes can be acquired by pre-ordering "Temper Temper."
Halestorm rocked to the top of the charts in 2012. "The Strange Case of..." debuted at #1 on Billboard's "Hard Rock Albums" chart, while single "Love Bites" was nominated for a Grammy Award for "Best Metal" song. Their relentless touring has paid dividends and included a stint of headline dates (review) late last year.
