Carnival of Madness 2012 featuring Evanescence, Chevelle and Halestorm at House of Blues
WHO ARE THEY: Evanescence is a rock band from Little Rock, Ark., that sold more than 15 million copies of its debut album “Fallen” in 2003. It contained the hit singles “Bring Me to Life” and “My Immortal.” The band was nominated for seven Grammy Awards for “Fallen” and wound up winning two. In 2006 Evanescence returned with “The Open Door,” which wasn’t the blockbuster its predecessor was, but still managed to sell 5 million copies. After several lineup changes, the band released a self-titled album in 2011, which debuted at the top of the charts.
Chevelle are a hard rock band from Chicago that released their Steve Albini-produced debut album “Point #1” in 1999. The band didn’t hit the big time, however, until 2002 when their sophomore album “Wonder What’s Next” was released and went on to achieve platinum sales status. It featured the singles “The Red,” “Closure” and “Send the Pain Below.” In 2004 Chevelle released “This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In),“ which featured the hit singles “Vitamin R (Leading Us Along),” “The Clincher” and “Panic Prone.” “Vena Sera” was released in 2007, with “Sci-Fi Crimes” following two years later.
The Red Lion, Pa.-based rock band Halestrom released its self-titled debut album in April 2009 with “I Get Off” as the lead single. The band became well known for its relentless touring schedule, performing upwards of 250 shows a year. In April 2012 Halestorm released its second album, “The Strange Case of…“
