‘Carnival Of Madness’ Preps For Inaugural Tour

Featuring Shinedown, Chevelle, Puddle Of Mudd, Sevendust and 10 Years, plans on becoming a yearly event.

And why not? By combining several bands already known as top-flight concert attractions, Shinedown tops a lineup that should leave fans talking about their experiences well into fall.
