Shinedown to headline Carnival Of Madness US tour

Shinedown will headline the Carnival Of Madness US tour in summer.

They’ll be joined by Halestorm, Black Stone Cherry and Whisky Myers on the sixth annual trek, which kicks off at Southaven Landers Center in Mississippi on July 20.

Shinedown frontman Brent Smith says: “I’ve always envisioned the Carnival Of Madness as more than just a music festival. It is a celebration of rock music where the lines between those on stage and those in the audience are blurred – where everyone is sharing in this amazing moment, truly experiencing the power of rock music together.

“This year, we’ve gathered artists from across the rock spectrum to bring the most dynamic Carnival Of Madness to date. Come join us.”

Shinedown are currently touring the US in support of their fifth album, Threat To Survival.
