The fans are going to get their money’s worth, that is for sure! We can’t wait to get started on 9/29 in Chattanooga! We would like to thank the entire 3 Doors Down camp for giving us this opportunity.” says front man Leigh Kakaty.
The band will be doing a series of contests surrounding the tour as well. Fans will have the chance to win everything from a phone call from Leigh and Matt to dinner with the band. For more contest details visit the band’s facebook page.

The band also enjoyed an entire week of having the #1 record on the iTunes Rock Chart with “MONSTER YOU MADE” being the #4 selling current rock single during release week to boot. Preview / purchase “WAR OF ANGELS” on iTunes here.
The band shot a video for “MONSTER YOU MADE” with critically acclaimed director Robby Starbuck, which can be seen here.

Comments the band: “Finally after a spring/summer of recording and releasing the first collaboration with Metal Blade, our debut album HATED, its time for Sister to head down through Europe! This is what we have longed for the last year and all the work we have put into everything is pretty much the preperation of one thing. To hit the roads. we will tour as much as possible now with the album out and this tour together with the U.D.O-tour will be our first mark in Europe. There will be full-blown riots so take the chance to check us out when we come to your town!”
SISTER have also been confirmed as the opening band for a part of the upcoming European tour of the one and only U.D.O.!

Comments SISTER: “Udo and Accept has been a big influence for the members in Sister for a long time and to open for U.D.O. is fucking great for sure! We’re really looking forward to it all and this is one of many things that we wished for at this stage in our career. With the new album “HATED” out this summer the only thing we want to do is to hit the roads! Germany has been our “second home” the last years and has except for Sweden been the country we undoubtedly done most gigs. It´s always been a blast down there. This will of course be no exception and we will see all of you bastards when the time comes. We promise a riot on stage and thank U.D.O. and the organization around him for this opportunity! Cheers!”
About the band:
SISTER, who hails from Stockholm/Jönkoping Sweden, formed in early 2006 working hard to build up a name as a strong act both live and in the studio. SISTERconsists of 4 members- Jamie on vocals, Lestat on guitars and backing vocals, Rikki on bass and backing vocals, and Cari on drums and backing vocals- who combine the sounds of Punk, Glam, Rock, and Metal with an end result sounding something like the bastard child of GG Allin and Guns N’ Roses.
SISTER’s Metal Blade debut HATED has been released the 3rd/6th of June, 2011!
Pompei Nights is the latest hard rock export from (you guessed it) Sweden. Judging from the clips I have heard from their recently released CD, Rather Die Than Livin’ In Boundaries, Pompei Nights could have a pretty big year amongst the sleaze metal fans out there. Don’t take my word for it, check out their video clip for their song, “Midnight Mistress” below, or visit the band’s myspace page where you can hear additional tracks for the CD. If you like what you hear, you download the songs at Amazon.com, or if you are old school (like me) and prefer a CD, you can get one at the Street Sypmhonies store online at this link.
Modern Superstar has announced the following upcoming dates for September:
9/4 Newport On The Levee-Newport, KY w/Cinderella and Skid Row
9/15 Club Royal Key-Cape Coral, FL(Acoustic Show) w/Push
9/16 Club Royal Key-Cape Coral, FL
9/17 Club Royal Key-Cape Coral, FL
More announcements are forthcoming.
