Breaking Benjamin and Shinedown Announce Joint US Tour

Two of Rock’s hottest bands, Breaking Benjamin and Shinedown, have announced a joint U.S. co-headlining tour that is set to embark this fall.  Kicking off at the Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, KS, on October 16th, this must see rock excursion will be hitting primarily secondary market arenas for the entirety of the five week-long run, closing at Cross Insurance Arena, in Portland, ME, on November 24th.  A full list of tour dates can be found below.

Both Breaking Benjamin and Shinedown have been lighting up the rock music newsfeeds lately for their respective airwave-invading releases.  Breaking Benjamin- backed by newly acquired Pearl Artist, Shaun Foist- have also stamped their name all over the charts as of late, reaching the No.1 position on the Rock Singles Chart for the track “Failure”, and also snatching up the No. 1 position on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart for the coinciding album, Dark Before Dawn.  Shinedown- featuring, Pearl Artist, Barry Kerch- topped the Rock Charts last week with their latest single, “Cut the Cord”- the debut track from their upcoming album, Threat to Survival

On this fall trek, Shaun Foist and Barry Kerch will both be turning to the task specific tones of Pearl’s Reference line of drums.  For the newly welcomed Shaun Foist, a stunning set of Reference Series drums with a matching 14x6.5 Reference series snare drum and custom ICON Rack System will be his setup of choice; whereas, Barry Kerch will be turning to his custom Reference Pure drums- the thin-plied version of the Reference Series- and 14x6.5 Reference Series brass snare drum

More information on Shaun Foist, including full specs on his Reference Series drum setup, can be found here.  For more information on Barry Kerch, and to view his custom Reference Pure setup, click here.
