The Jagermeister Music Tour Rages On!

Stone Sour Leads the Tour With Special Guests Lacuna Coil and Shadows Fall

Stone Sour Leads the Tour With Special Guests Lacuna Coil and Shadows Fall

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y., Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Jagermeister is ready to
rock once again with the latest installment of the Jagermeister Music Tour!
Stone Sour will lead the charge with their first headlining tour in support
of their new album COME WHAT(EVER) MAY with special guests Lacuna Coil and
Shadows Fall. The Tour kicks off on March 23rd in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Fresh from their sold-out European/UK tour, Grammy-nominated Stone Sour
is primed to capture the attention and the hearts of the rock 'n roll
masses. The band is a multi-faceted hard rock force of nature whose
twisting melodies run the gamut of emotions. Stone Sour was the band to see
at last summer's Family Values Tour where they performed with Korn and The
Deftones, and, more recently, the band toured with Disturbed to rave
reviews. Their latest album, Come What(ever) May (Roadrunner), is certified
gold and on its way to platinum.
"This has been something we have been looking forward to for a very
long time," says Stone Sour vocalist, Corey Taylor. "Having done this tour
before, I can honestly say it's like nothing I've ever experienced. It's
our time, and we're coming for you."
Fronted by Cristina Scabbia, one of hard rock's most admired vocalists,
Lacuna Coil has firmly established itself as a force not only in their
native Italy, but around the world. After first making waves with Comalies
(Century Media Records), powered by the hit singles "Swamped" and "Heaven's
A Lie," and backed by aggressive touring that included a breakthrough
second-stage slot on Ozzfest, the band returned in 2006 with the acclaimed
Karmacode, which reached the Billboard Top 30. Following a sold-out spring
tour alongside Rob Zombie and a performance of Karmacode's debut single
"Our Truth" on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Lacuna Coil returned to Ozzfest --
this time, on the main stage, where Scabbia became the first female to
perform in a decade.
"It's about time!" says Scabbia about being part of the Jager Tour.
"It'll be a blast, and you guys CAN'T miss it cause it's gonna be the tour
of the year! See you all there ... spread the word... and horns up, my
Following an amazing year that brought forth a Grammy nomination, a
spot on the main stage at Ozzfest, 250,000 sales of their latest album, and
much more, Shadows Fall refuse to rest on their laurels. The band is making
their Atlantic Records debut with the release of Threads of Life. The
hotly- anticipated release, produced by Nick Raskulinecz, will coincide
with the Tour. The album showcases the band's roots, which were built both
on thrash metal and undeniable, crushing melodies.
Brian Fair of Shadows Fall says "After spending most of the past year
trapped in the practice space and the studio, everyone in Shadows Fall is
extremely excited to finally be getting back on the road! We plan on
releasing a year of pent up energy on stage and unleashing a few new songs
from our upcoming album "THREADS OF LIFE." We are really looking forward to
teaming up with our good friends in Stone Sour and Lacuna Coil for an
amazing tour. Time to put the Jagermeister on ice and line up the shots
because its time to party with Shadows Fall!"
"We as a company have a lot of respect for hard rock and metal music
and also a lot of respect for Stone Sour and what they have accomplished,"
says Rick Zeiler, Director of Marketing and Brand Development for
Jagermeister. "We have worked with both Lacuna Coil and Shadows Fall for
many years through our band sponsorship program, and both of these bands
know how to represent Jagermeister. It's nice to have family as part of one
of our music tours! With this lineup and Jagermeister's signature support,
this tour will be one of the biggest of the season!"
The Tour will rock through May and each show will be rounded out with a
local Jagermeister band. Going on six years, the Jagermeister Music Tour is
bigger and bolder than ever, becoming THE hard rock show to see. Produced
by Live Nation, past Tours have brought Disturbed, Slayer, Slipknot, Staind
and Hatebreed, to the masses, and now the Tour continues its hard rock
