Hailing from Red Lion, Pennsylvania, Halestorm was formed in 1997 by siblings Lzzy and Arejay Hale as a family band with their dad. Over the next few years the band would evolve, signing with Atlantic Records and releasing a live EP called One and Done in 2006. In 2009 their self-titled debut album was released, with the lead single “I Get Off” eventually being certified gold by the RIAA in 2017 and the album also reaching gold the year before. Their next full-length album The Strange Case Of… came out in 2012, the lead single of which would earn the band a Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance, and the record would go on to be certified platinum as of 2022, as would the second single “I Miss the Misery” in 2019.  Following the success of their first two albums, Halestorm continued to explode in popularity, releasing their chart-topping albums Into the Wild Life in 2015 and Vicious in 2018. Even the Covid-19 lockdown couldn’t slow the band down, as they released their Reimagined EP and launched the #RoadieStrong campaign to help support all the road crews who were unable to work. Most recently the band released Back from the Dead in 2022 and have been touring extensively, selling out Wembley Arena in 2023, and are currently scheduled to play all three dates of Knotfest Australia, headline several Danny Wimmer festivals including Aftershock, Louder Than Life, and Inkcarceration, and will be touring the US including headlining WDHA’s Rock The Park.

I Prevail was formed in Southfield, Michigan in 2013. At the end of 2014, the band released their first single, a cover of Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” on YouTube, which proceeded to hit number 90 on the Billboard Hot 100 and 23 on the US Mainstream Rock Songs charts, and as of 2024 has over 77 million views and Over 130 million streams on Spotify. Two weeks later, riding the massive increase in popularity, the fledgling band released their debut EP Heart vs. Mind and began to tour with bands such as Crown the Empire and Pop Evil. In 2016, the band would release their debut album Lifelines, which contained their next big single “Scars”, both of which would become certified Gold by the RIAA. The band has continued to grow and has toured across the world, playing with bands such as A Day To Remember, Beartooth, and Pierce The Veil has released two more full length albums in Trauma (2019), which was nominated for Best Rock Album and Best Metal Performance for the lead single “Bow Down” at the Grammys, and True Power (2022).  

 

While they may go everywhere, Hollywood Undead was started in Los Angeles California in 2005 by Jorel “J-Dog” Decker and now former members Aron “Deuce” Erlichman and Jeff “Shady Jeff” Phillips. Shortly after the once-masked rap-rock group started, Dylan “Funny Man” Alvarez, George “Johnny 3 Tears” Ragan, Jordon “Charlie Scene” Terrell, and now former member Matthew “Da Kurlzz” Busek joined. Rounding out the current lineup are Danny Murillo and touring drummer Matt “The Cat” Oloffson. In 2008, the band released their debut album Swan Songs which would reach number 22 on the Billboard 200 chart and produced one of the band’s biggest hits in the single “Everywhere I Go”, with other songs featured in games like UFC Undisputed 2009, Madden NFL 09, and Rock Band 2. Since then, the band has continued with their signature rap-rock style, ditched their masked personas, and stuck with their abrasive and occasionally offensive or controversial lyrics, releasing 8 total albums with each reaching considerable success and touring the world. 

 

Fit For A King, sometimes shortened to FFAK by fans, is a metalcore band formed in 2007 in Tyler Texas. While the group currently doesn’t have any original members, vocalist Ryan Kirby and guitarist Bobby Lynge has been with them since before their debut album, Descendants (2011), which has allowed the band to keep a consistent sound and direction. Throughout their career, the band has had considerable success on the charts, including their 2020 album The Path topping the Christian Albums chart, and peaking at number 2 on the Top Hard Rock Albums and number 6 on the Top Rock Albums charts. The group has also been on a near-consistent touring grind, having just finished two legs of the co-headlined Metalcore Dropouts tour with The Devil Wears Prada, which started shortly after their own headlining tour in support of their latest album The Hell We Create (2022). With the band releasing the single “Keeping Secrets” at the start of 2024, the potential for a new album in the near future is there, along with plenty more touring to follow for years to come.
