Coal Chamber + Sevendust Co-Headline Tour

Coal Chamber, which graced the cover of “Pollstar” magazine back in 1999, has just announced its first U.S. tour in more than 10 years. The nu metal band is hitting the road with Sevendust on a co-headline excursion scheduled in March and April.

After breaking up in 2003, Coal Chamber reunited in 2011 and returned to the stage in 2012 to play Australia’s Sidewaves and Soundwave Festival.

Now U.S. audiences will get the chance to see the band live once more. Coal Chamber features original members Dez Fafara, Meegs Rascón and Mike Cox along with new bassist Chela Rhea Harper, who joined in 2011.

Each of the bandmates sent out a statement to tell you how they feel about the upcoming tour.  

“I’m STOKED to be bringing Coal Chamber back to the United States,” said vocalist Dez Fafara. “These shows are going to f**king rule! The line-up is perfect! Hope to see you all there!”

Drummer Mike Cox added, “The past has fuelled the fire to bring Coal Chamber back stronger than ever. I couldn’t be more excited to tour the states on an amazing tour. HERE WE GO!”

Guitarist Meegs Rascón said, “I’m really excited and grateful to be a part of such an awesome bill! We will be slaying it across America and the world.”  

And finally, from bassist Chela Rhea Harper: “America is where Coal Chamber started; where the music first came to life. The entire experience in Australia and South America has been so surreal up until this point, and to be able to continue this adventure on the band’s home soil is an honor. The support from all has been tremendous.”
