World's Loudest Month LogoWorld’s Loudest Month, created in partnership by AEG Live and Danny Wimmer Presents, continues to grow in 2014. Featuring the biggest names in rock music performing in seven distinct U.S. concert atmospheres, the World’s Loudest Month is excited to announce the addition of two new festivals, as well as the 2014 festival dates. In 2013, the World’s Loudest Month featured over 125 artists playing for more than a quarter of a million rock music fans across the country on five consecutive weekends, confirming that rock music is as vital as ever.

The 2014 World’s Loudest Month festival events and dates are as follows:

Monster Energy’s Welcome To Rockville: April 26 & 27 in North Florida
Fort Rock: April 26 in Fort Myers, FL
Carolina Rebellion: May 3 & 4 in Charlotte, NC
Rock On The Range: May 16, 17 & 18 in Columbus, OH
Rocklahoma: May 23, 24 & 25 in Pryor, OK
RockFest: May 31 in Kansas City, MO

“When we created the World’s Loudest Month platform, we did it with the goal of growing it to become the launch pad for rock festival fans across the country,” comments Joe Litvag, Co-Executive Producer. “We’re excited to add Fort Myers to the mix in 2014, which further expands our reach for the rock genre.”

The World’s Loudest Month kick-off weekend begins in the Sunshine state of Florida with Monster Energy’s Welcome To Rockville, April 26 and 27. Florida’s largest rock festival returns to North Florida for its fourth year and–along with the addition of Fort Rock (Fort Myers, FL) on April 26–kicks off WLM! Only the state of Florida could handle two major events on the same day! For ticket specials, hotel and VIP packages, visit www.welcometorockville.com and www.fortrockfestival.com.

“I’ve been saying all year that I keep hearing rock is ‘dead,’ yet record numbers attend our shows every year. Our festivals are for music fans who buck trends and remain true to the music they like. Our job as tastemakers in rock and roll is to find the markets where music fans are underserved and I am happy to add Fort Rock to our World’s Loudest Month and include it on the same weekend with Welcome To Rockville, says Danny Wimmer, Co-Executive Producer.

Next up is Carolina Rebellion, returning to Rock City Campgrounds at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina for its second consecutive year. With on-site camping, amazing VIP packages and a lineup featuring today’s biggest bands, in four short years Carolina Rebellion has quickly grown to be the Carolinas’ Biggest Weekend of Rock. www.CarolinaRebellion.com

Rock On The Range–the nation’s biggest and most-acclaimed active rock festival–will grow to three full days in 2014 after a successful expanded Friday Night in 2013. Over 105,000 die-hard Rangers attended ROTR last year, traveling to Columbus, OH from all 50 states and over the globe, resulting in a sellout for the first time since the inaugural, one-day Rock on the Range in 2007. Pre-sale Layaway tickets go on sale on Monday, December 2, and VIP, hotel, and camping packages go on sale Thursday, December 5 at  www.RockOnTheRange.com

Rocklahoma–America’s biggest Memorial Day Weekend party–continues to be the ultimate destination Rock event in the country. The three-day camp & rock festival features the top current active and classic rock artists at “Catch the Fever” Festival Grounds in Pryor, OK. Ticket renewals for 2014 will be available starting Monday, December 2. To renew your 2013 ticket location, call the box office at (866) 310-2288. www.Rocklahoma.com

RockFest celebrates its astounding 22nd year in 2014. Drawing crowds in excess of 55,000 annually at Penn Valley Park in downtown Kansas City, RockFest is definitely worthy of its title as “the BIGGEST one-day music festival in the United States.” www.RockfestKC.com

The World’s Loudest Month mobile app (available via iTunes and Android), released in 2013, will be updated early next year and will feature all festival information, the latest rock news, exclusive songs from current and previous WLM bands, and more. Band lineups and additional details for each festival will be announced in early 2014.

Monster Energy returns as a sponsor of the World’s Loudest Month for the second year in a row, along with the valued partnerships with Jägermeister, Jack Daniel’s and Ernie Ball. The World’s Loudest Month is also working with Revolver Magazine to bring you exclusive news, interviews and photos of all the festivals.

The Winery Dogs_PromoJuly 31, 2013 –THE WINERY DOGS (@TheWineryDogs) is sending a huge thank you to their loyal fans in North America for giving their critically-acclaimed self-titled debut album a strong debut on the Billboard charts. Not only did it explode onto the “Top Rock Chart” at #5, it also opens on the “Top 200 Albums” chart at #27.

The power trio–Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, Avenged Sevenfold), Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big) and Richie Kotzen (Mr. Big, Poison)—self-produced THE WINERY DOGS, which was released July 23 on Loud & Proud Records. The album has been hailed as “…one of the most intriguing releases of the year” by Loudwire.com, and in a recent reader’s poll on Revolver magazine’s website, fans called it their “Album of the Week.”

Success hasn’t been limited to the U.S. shores. THE WINERY DOGS recently kicked off their first-ever tour in Japan and South America to sold-out crowds wherever they played. After one more stop in Buenos Aires on August 1, they’ll head home for their first U.S. shows, starting August 3 in New York City at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill. While they’re in town, THE WINERY DOGS will appear on “The Artie Lange Show,” which will air Monday, August 5 at 10pm ET on DirectTV and is streamed live on the show’s website. On Tuesday, August 6 at 7pm, the band will take part in an in-store signing session at Vintage Vinyl in Fords, NJ. For more information, visit www.vvinyl.com.

Once the first leg of their U.S. trek concludes on August 8, Portnoy, Sheehan and Kotzen will take a much-deserved break before heading back overseas for their first shows in Europe throughout most of September, which will include stops in England, Germany, Spain, Italy and Portugal. The U.S. tour will start up again on October 3 in Agoura Hills, CA at the Canyon Club.

Meanwhile, THE WINERY DOGS will guest on the nationally syndicated radio show, “Rockline,” with host Bob Coburn on Wednesday, August 14 at 8:30pm PT/11:30pm ET. Fans are encouraged to speak with the band that night by calling 1-800-344-ROCK (7625). The show will be streamed on Rocklineradio.com for two weeks beginning the afternoon after the live broadcast.

Records. Produced by Mike Elizondo, Hail To The King was recently proclaimed “the band’s crowning achievement” by Revolver Magazine.

Avenged Sevenfold also announced the Hail To The King Tour – a massive headlining U.S. arena tour to take place this October and the band’s first full scale American tour since 2011. The run of dates will kick off in Chicago, IL on Thursday, October 3rd and wrap up on October 26th in Las Vegas, NV. Supporting the band on all dates will be special guests Deftones and Ghost B.C. See below for a complete list of dates. Venues and on-sale information will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Additionally, starting today fans of Avenged Sevenfold can pre-order a special, limited-edition box set of Hail To The King (available on August 27th). The antique gold colored embossed foil wrapped “treasure box” will feature exclusive Hail To The King artwork and include a deluxe version of the album on CD with a download card to an extra bonus track, an exclusive Canvas Print, a 20-page photo book featuring photos of the band through out the years, a Death Bat Challenge Coin, Death Bat Skeleton Key, an instant download of the new single, and a download of the album on street date.

Hail To The King is the follow up to Avenged Sevenfold’s 5th studio album, Nightmare, which earned the band it’s highest ever debut on the Billboard album chart when it took the Number One spot and spawned three Number One, hit-singles “Nightmare”, “So Far Away” and “Welcome To The Family”. “Nightmare” broke radio records and was the most played current song at Rock Radio for all of 2010. Throughout 2010 and 2011 Avenged Sevenfold toured the world nonstop. They have achieved Diamond, Platinum and Gold awards for album sales in nearly a dozen countries and have sold out arenas the world over and headlined some of the worlds biggest and most prestigious music festivals playing to over one million people. Due to an overwhelming demand from the United States troops abroad, Avenged Sevenfold embarked on a USO tour in the Middle East including stops in Kuwait and tour of Iraq performing for US soldiers stationed abroad.

Avenged Sevenfold made an unprecedented appearance as characters in the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 video game in November 2012. The game was the biggest selling video game of all time and featured the band’s performance of a song written for the game, ‘Carry On,’ which then went on to Top the Billboard Monitor chart on January 13, 2013.

On August 26th, one day before the release of Hail To The King, Avenged Sevenfold will play a free show for their fans at the Hollywood Palladium.
