Their album dropped in stores yesterday and the band has announced a new tour. You can find King Animal at the usual places you find new music. Now Soundgarden has announced a tour that will begin January 18th in Washington. They’ll be in Chicago for two dates at the Riviera January 29th and the 30th. King Animal is the first album of new tunes in 15 years from the band. A video for the first single, “Been Away Too Long,” is also available online. See that video below or at this link.
Speaking of tours, Three Days Grace, Shinedown and P.O.D. plan a tour. The co-headlining tour will kick off in Moline, Illinois February 1st. Then they’ll snake their way through parts of Wisconsin, Tennessee, Michigan, Kentucky eventually to end up in Maryland and Massachusetts. Three Days Grace’s new album is out now. Shinedown recently said they’ve got an entirely new album already in the can, but don’t have an expected release date.
Taking up residency
Motley Crue, and Guns ‘N Roses did it, why not Def Leppard? It’s not a tour, but it’s something that some more aged bands are taking up and that’s a residency in Los Vegas. The nine-date residency at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino begins March 22nd. The band plans to perform their Hysteria album in its entirety, then another set featuring some of their other hits. Band members say it will be an over-the-top rock show with elaborate sets made just for the residency.
