About this year's lineup:

sickpuppiesLos Angeles via Australia modern rock trio Sick Puppies slammed into the scene in 2006 with their groundbreaking “Free Hugs,” video, which has garnered more than 40 million views on YouTube to date. The video, which accompanied the band’s song “All The Same,” earned Sick Puppies exposure on Oprah, Jay Leno, “60 Minutes” and CNN. It also propelled “All the Same” into a top requested single at commercial radio stations across North America. Years before YouTube, Sick Puppies were winning prestigious commendations, including “Best Song” from Triple J Unearthed, and “Best Live Performance” from the Australian Live Music Awards. The Australian edition of Rolling Stone even called Sick Puppies “the most dynamic new band in the country.” This past year saw the release of their most recent album, Connect (via Capitol Records), which garnered the band an impressive #17 debut on the Billboard Top 200 chart. With infectious tunes, a jaw-dropping stage show and equal doses of hits and hugs, Sick Puppies are striking a blow against the horde of faceless modern rock bands that are virtually all the same.

lacunaMoving and powerful, mysterious and serpentine, the music of Lacuna Coil has always been somewhat of a mystery to nail down. Too brawny to be gothic, yet too melodic to be purely metal, the band has carved a path all its own with their unique sound and undeniable songwriting prowess. Fans are in store for a real treat this time around, as the band will debut songs from their newly recorded album; the Jay Baumgardner produced Broken Crown Halo, which is set for an April 1 release date through Century Media Records.

estkEyes Set To Kill have been providing fans with an outlet for their aggression since they first emerged from Phoenix, Arizona in 2003. Since then, they have amassed over 1.3 million Facebook likes, covered USA Today, and landed on Alternative Press's coveted "100 Bands You Need to Know List". On the road, they've developed into a veritable whirlwind, sharing stages with everyone from Papa Roach to Black Veil Brides. They've crossed the globe four times on tour and even headlined a festival in Jakarta in front of 8,000-plus fans. Their new album Masks is out now via Century Media Records, produced by Steve Evetts (Suicide Silence, The Dillinger Escape Plan).

CilverEmerging from the New York, NY rock scene, Cilver, fronted by Uliana, one of the 2014 Revolver’sHottest Chicks In Hard Rock, is quickly making a name for themselves. With their debut single, “In My Head”, which features Bumblefoot of Guns n’ Roses, the band has garnered attention from Revolver Magzine, Metal Insider, Blabbermouth, and many other sites. “In My Head” has also been the “Flavor Of The Week” on Music Choice TV and has been getting spins on Sirius XM Octane, along with dozens of other national radio stations. Cilver’s debut EP, “In My Head” will be independently released on January 21. Check out their video and single at www.cilverband.com
