Pearl Artists Gear Up for the 2011 Uproar Tour

The second annual Rockstar Energy Uproar Tour returns this summer, set to conquer North America with a massive active rock lineup. Leading the charge is multi-platinum headliner Avenged Sevenfold, making their triumphant reprise on the tour after co-headlining the 2010 debut Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. Pearl artists Michael "Moose" Thomas of Bullet for My Valentine, and Robert Ortiz of Escape the Fate, will be featured on this year's main stage as well, while Morgan Rose of Sevendust, and Steven Spence of Black Tide, gear up to rock the Best Buy Music Side Stage. The Rockstar Uproar Tour will entertain fans with a full afternoon and evening of great rock bands between the 2 stages, along with a concourse midway featuring band autograph signings, vendors and other activities. Dates for the tour have yet to be announced, but feel free to visit, for more information.

About the bands:

Bullet For My Valentine continue to tour and support their 2010, Top 3 release, "Fever", which dropped in February. Bullet For My Valentine were just nominated for three Kerrang! Awards including Best Single ("Your Betrayal"), Best Live Band, and Best British Band. More information on Bullet for my Valentine can be found online at

Known for their incendiary live shows, Las Vegas rockers, Escape The Fate have been relentlessly touring in support of their recent self-titled album which hit the shelves in late 2010. The album debuted at #4 on the Billboard Rock album chart, #3 on the Billboard Alternative chart and #1 on the Billboard Tastemakers Chart and also features the singles "Issues" and "Gorgeous Nightmare." Revolver proclaimed, "Escape The Fate made an album that treads the tightrope between good times and introspection, between rollicking rock, raging post-hardcore, and tender balladry," and Outburn declared "the band's new album is a compelling modern day masterpiece."  More information can be found on their website,

Sevendust--featuring the group's original lineup--is touring in support of their eighth studio album, "Cold Day Memory", which was released April 20, 2010 on their own 7Bros. Records, through Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group. The limited edition CD/DVD debuted #12 on Billboard's Top 200 chart, marking the highest debut of the band's 15 year career.  For more information, please visit Morgan and Sevendust online at

After a non-stop rollercoaster of touring in support of their 2008 debut, "Light From Above"--which saw Black Tide participate in the first-ever Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, tour the U.S. with Avenged Sevenfold, play the main stage at Ozzfest 2008, and light up the Vans Warped Tour 2009--Black Tide's dynamic second album for DGC/Interscope, "Post Mortem", is set to hit stores this summer.  For more information on the new album, be sure to visit Black Tide online at
