Shinedown Postpone Knoxville, TN Show

Shinedown have postponed tonight’s (May 7) show in Knoxville, TN due to frontman Brent Smith suffering from bronchitis. The concert was supposed to serve as the closing date on the band’s current tour with The Pretty Reckless and Diamante. Smith said the following:

“Knoxville Tn… I am so very sorry that we are having to postpone tonight’s show due to the fact that I have bronchitis… I know a lot of people are upset, and mad… Believe me so am I… All I can say is that we will make the date up, if you want a refund I TOTALLY understand and we will get it to you ASAP… We are working on figuring out a make up date as quickly as we can. Again I am so sorry… I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it now @shinedown only has one BOSS, it just happens to be everyone in the audience, and I know I’ve let you down. I promise we will make it up to you. Until Next Time 🙏”

Diamante Teams Up With Lit For New Version Of “American Dream”

Diamante has joined forces with Lit to record a new version of her song “American Dream.” You can find a music video for the updated take on the track below. Diamante said the following about the collaboration:

“To me, Lit exudes that American rock n’ roll spirit, so I couldn’t think of any better band to feature on this new take of my song ‘American Dream.’ I’m really honored they said yes to being a part of this, and I love that they made this version completely their own, down to the detail that the song was recorded in Nashville.”

Diamante Premieres “Unlovable” Music Video, Announces European/UK Tour

Diamante has shared a new video for her song “Unlovable.” This track is from her latest album “American Dream”

Diamante commented:

“Unlovable is about my deepest insecurity, which is my fear that maybe I am too hard to love. Everyone at some point has been made to feel this way because it’s easy to believe (after many heartaches) that you yourself are the problem. It was written in the middle of lockdown when I wasn’t out on tour playing shows every night, and I was finally forced to sit with myself and feel every emotion/memory I had been suppressing… and my fear of being unlovable was definitely a haunting feeling.”

Hellfest organizers commented:

“Hellbangers,

What can we say except that we are proud (and excited) to finally unveil the long-awaited line up of our anniversary edition! Keeping such a line up as a secret for several weeks has been no easy task, especially in the last few days…

It’s been more than 16 months since our work rhythm was turned upside down by the arrival of this virus, since the live music industry was extinguished. Despite this, our confidence has never been affected and we have kept working with a positive mindset.

The frustration of two years without a festival has led us to dream even bigger about our reunion! In 2022, we are offering a new and unique format spread over 10 days! Never done before, this formula will, without a doubt, remain in the history of so-called “extreme” music! Twice as historic, because this formula is meant to exist only in 2022 and will not happen again in the years to come.

After a first weekend from 17 to 19th June 2022, we double the fun with an additional weekend from 23rd to 26th June! A real marathon that will see no less than 350 artists on 6 stages!

As usual, the festival does not deviate from its principles: you will see artists capable of performing in stadiums, with artists who are usually playing in smaller venues, and for some even in pub caves. Punk, Heavy, Black, Hardcore, Death, Stoner, Pagan, Power, we have done our best to put together what we believe to be the “edition of the century”.

No need to list the program in detail as you are not, and for the second year, headbanging at the festival right now. You can find out all this by yourself, at home or with your friends, enjoying our virtual edition “Hellfest From Home“! (More information over here : fromhome.hellfest.fr)

This exceptional edition is also an opportunity for us to thank the pass holders who have been waiting for more than 2 years. Your loyalty and trust have kept us going and we do not have enough words to thank you. It seemed fair to us that you should access the ticket sale 24 hours before the public sale in order for you to obtain your ticket for sure.

We are aware that some of you, for professional, family or simply financial reasons, will not be able to attend this XXL edition. By going through (and only through!) our partner TICKETSWAP (please stop Viagogo and others…), you will be able to resell your pass for the weekend you are the least interested in, and thus make one more happy fan!

For all the others who will have the chance to live these 10 days of anthology with us, we promise that you will remember our reunion! As a bonus, we might even make you a nice “FINISHER” t-shirt so that this moment will remain engraved forever in your memories. Once in a lifetime celebration!

Last but not least, we could not finish without thanking all those who have supported us during these last months. Volunteers, intermittents, sponsors, service providers, media partners, people from Clisson, we are all eager to see you again and to live with you this future adventure, which promises to be historic!

Stay Strong. Stay Safe.
