It seems like Candlelight Red are refusing to take a rest from their breakneck 2012 schedule. In addition to recently issuing their debut full-length disc, The Wreckage (and single, “She’s Got the Look“), the band has secured a spot on the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival, which they will start a month after wrapping up tours with Lacuna Coil and Crossfade. The group will be rocking on one of two Festival Stages, which will also see sets from Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind, Papa Roach, Adelitas Way, POD, and many more.
Live Nation is the national tour promoter for the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival, and the tour will play more than 30 shows throughout North America during August and September. “We’re really excited about this year’s awesome lineup,” say tour producers John Oakes and John Reese. “It’s incredible to have so many of the biggest bands in rock together with some newer bands that are blowing up. By adding a second stage to the festival area and including even more great talent, we’re stepping things up a notch for the UPROAR fans.”
“Being on UPROAR is a huge honor,” says Candlelight guitarist Jeremy Edge. “To be playing on a tour with some of the biggest bands in rock today is very humbling!” Drummer Brian Dugan added, “This is a tremendous opportunity, a sign of many good things to come for Candlelight Red.”
Look for tour dates, venues and ticket on-sale information to be announced in the coming weeks.
