Uproar Festival is coming to town

Preview by Steve Black

The 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival line up has been announced and this year's tour starts in our backyard at the old Pine Knob - the DTE Energy Music Theater on Friday, August 15th.

It is an impressive list of bands with Godsmack, Seether, and Pop Evil leading the way.

Godsmack has a special connection to Detroit and has held some of their best shows in and around the Motor City. Seether's new album and single is some of their best work to date and it will be great to see them play some of the new songs live. Pop Evil are simply one of the most fun bands in concert that I've seen in recent years.

The full rundown also includes Skillet, Escape the Fate, Redlight King, 3 Years Hollow, Within Reason, New Medicine, Suicide Girls, These Raven Skies, Tattered, Sons of Revelry, and Buckcherry on most dates, but not the opening date at DTE.

For the first 72 hours after tickets go on sale (Friday, June 20th) there is an upgrade option through Ticket Master. if you purchase your tickets at www.RockstarUPROAR.com you can also pre-order the new Godsmack album 1000hp for just $7.99.

I spoke with Seether front man Shaun Morgan about their new album Isolate and Medicate; the link to that audio is posted just below the video and above the image at the top of this article.
