The 2012 Carnival of Madness lineup has been announced and with female fronted bands Evanescence and Halestorm leading the charge, the annual tour is chock full of girl power. But there’s room for the gents, too, as Chevelle and New Medicine round out the bill, serving up a stellar lineup of today’s best acts in modern hard rock.
All four bands have new music to bring to the stage. Evanescence released their self-titled disc at the end of 2011 and have been road warriors ever since. Halestorm recently wrapped up their Mass Chaos tour run with Godsmack and Staind and just dropped their latest album ‘The Strange Case of…’ in April. Chevelle’s ‘Hats Off to the Bull’ came out in December of 2011, and the newest band on the bill, New Medicine, released their debut disc in 2010.
“We’re really looking forward to the Carnival of Madness tour this summer. We love Chevelle and haven’t hit the road together in years, and I’m really stoked to finally be playing some shows with Halestorm. Naturally, I’m a fan of strong women in music and Lzzy’s voice is spectacular.” - Amy Lee (Evanescence) singing the praises of Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale.
