Halestorm is gonna rock Sturgis. News has it that the band will be playing for a ton of bad ass bikers at the 2013 Sturgis Buffalo Chip Motorcycle Rally and Music Festival August 4th in South Dakota. The band will be opening up for ZZ Top. An organizer with the event said that Halestorm is unstoppable, and their recent Grammy Award proves that. Kid Rock is also set to rock the stage at Sturgis, as is Sublime with Rome. So all you bikers planning your summer time treks, be sure to put Sturgis on that list. Sturgis runs from August 2nd through the 11th.
New album in the works
AC/DC is working on new material. That’s according to band bassist Cliff Williams. The band isn’t in the studio at the moment, but the Brother Young (Angus and Malcolm) are working on piecing together new riffs for new songs. This will be the first album from the band since 2008’s Black Ice. No word yet on a possible release date.
