Halestorm and the Pretty Reckless Team up for The Carnival of Madness Tour

Rock fans, rejoice!  The lineup for the 2015 Carnival of Madness Tour has been announced and it has become an early contender as the hottest rock tour of the year.  Featuring the Grammy Award Winning hard-rock heavyweights, Halestorm, and with direct support coming from rock’s hottest up-and-comers, The Pretty Reckless, this spring run is scheduled to begin at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, on April 22nd, and will make its way around the US before coming to a close at The Great Saltair, in Salt Lake City, UT, on June 3rd.  A full list of tour dates can be found below, with more dates rumored to be announced.

For, Pearl Artist, Arejay Hale and Halestorm, this tour will serve as their first headlining tour in support of their forthcoming album, Into the Wild Life, which will hit the shelves on April 7th, courtesy of Atlantic Records.  The first single from the new album, “Apocalyptic” cracked the Top 10 mark on the US Top Rock Singles Chart this week, landing at the No. 9 position only a few weeks following its release.  For this upcoming tour, Arejay will be relying on his beautiful Reference Series drums with a yet-to-be-revealed low-rider ICON Rack System.  More information on Arejay Hale can be found here.

The 2015 Carnival of Madness Tour will serve as the second leg of back-to-back North American tours for Jamie Perkins and The Pretty Reckless, who begin their winter tour alongside Nickelback next week.  The Pretty Reckless currently own the No. 5 single on the US Rock Charts with “Follow Me Down”, which can be found on their 2014 studio release, Going to Hell.  Pearl Artist, Jamie Perkins, will be slamming away on his beautiful new black-on-black Reference Series drums for the Carnival of Madness Tour, surrounded by Pearl’s highly durable 1030 Series hardware.  More information on Jamie Perkins can be found here.
