Shinedown, Papa Roach, Skillet + In This Moment Highlight 2013 Carnival of Madness Tour

Carnival of Madness 2013
Shinedown.com

Shinedown headlined the inaugural Carnival of Madness trek back in 2010, but stepped aside as Theory of a Deadman and Evanescence did the honors the past two years. This year, Shinedown return to front the traveling festival they helped launch, and they’ve got a strong lineup hitting the road with them.

This year’s package tour will feature Papa Roach, Skillet, In This Moment and We as Human rounding out the bill, making for an impressive bill that will travel the country at a reasonable price.

Shinedown frontman Brent Smith revealed the news in the video below and he promised to speak more in-depth about the festival in an online “Shindig” taking place this afternoon (May 28). The virtual meet and greet will take place at 6PM ET/3PM PT at this location.

In a statement about the trek, Smith stated, “Carnival of Madness is more than a show — it’s an experience. This year, it’s all about reinvention. The culmination of five powerful and dynamic bands joining together to prove to the world that rock-n-roll is alive and well. So, step right up. Come one, come all. The Carnival of Madness has arrived!!!”

Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix offered, “We’re so stoked to be on Carnival of Madness this year. It’s an absolutely killer bill from top to bottom … fans better be ready to get crazy at these shows.” His tourmate, Skillet’s John Cooper, chimed in, “I can hardly wait for the Carnival of Madness. Shinedown is one of the best bands in the business and we’re excited to share the stage with them and great performers like Papa Roach, In This Moment and We as Human. Also, it’ll be our first tour playing songs from our new album, ‘Rise,’ so Skillet will be doing our best to bring the pain every night!”

In This Moment added, “We are thrilled to be a part of Carnival of Madness this year. Shinedown is one of our favorite bands and it is truly an honor to share the stage with them again. All the bands involved this year bring something unique and exciting to the table, making this a ‘do not miss’ event! We are humbled and grateful that we get to be a part of Carnival of Madness this year, and can’t wait to surprise you with our brand new show this summer!” We as Human frontman Justin Cordle concluded, “I can’t begin to tell you how stoked we are to be on the Carnival of Madness this year. To be able to meet new fans on a tour with so many bands that we’ve admired for so long is incredible. We are ready to do this!”

Dates for the fourth annual Carnival of Madness trek will be revealed on June 3, with a special Shinedown fan pre-sale beginning June 5. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on June 7.
