Barry Kerch Returns Home to Pearl

Barry Kerch has returned home.  This summer, the Shinedown skins-man will be taking his familiar spot back behind his Pearl Drums, coming back to the drum brand that supported his arduous and lengthy journey to the top ranks of rock-drumming stardom.  Barry Kerch will be relying on his custom Reference Pure drums, finished in a Red Sparkle lacquer with halo flake accents, in his signature 1-up, 2-down, double-bass signature setup.  This particular kit was built for Barry to use for the tours supporting Shinedown’s 2012 studio release, Amaryllis.  Full specs on Barry’s Reference Pure drum set can be found here

Hitting the road in support of their forthcoming and yet-to-be-announced album, Barry and Shinedown will begin their summer trek at The Mahaffey Theater in Saint Petersburg, FL, on July 9th, and will make their way around the country until their performance at the Monster Energy Aftershock Festival at Gibson Ranch Park, in Elverta, CA, on October 24th.  For more information on Shinedown, including a full list of tour dates, please visit   Welcome back, Barry!
