Tremonti + Trivium to Co-Headline 2015 HardDrive Live Fall Tour
Tremonti and Trivium have been announced as the co-headliners for the 2015 HardDrive Live tour. The seventh annual trek kicks off in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Sept. 9 and right now will be hitting 33 cities from September until the end of October with more dates expected to be announced soon.
Trivium are still touring behind their 2013 album Vengeance Falls, while Mark Tremonti just released his second disc under the Tremonti band name. Cauterize came out in May, and you can buy that album on Amazon.
Tremonti bassist Wolfgang Van Halen recorded Cauterize with the group, but fans should expect to see Tanner Keegan up onstage for at least part of this trek. The band has been touring with Keegan, so Wolfgang can fulfill his commitments to his other group, Van Halen. Right now, Van Halen have tour dates listed through Oct. 4.
Both Tremonti and Trivium hail from Orlando, Fla., and released statements about getting to share the 2015 HardDrive bill. “We in Trivium are incredibly excited to be going on tour with Tremonti,” said singer Matt Heafy. “It’s awesome to see two fellow metal and rock bands that are grown from metal, grown from the same bands, grown from the same hometown, to be able to go out and show the world our own brand of metal and show the world what we love to do and how we love to do it. We can’t wait to see everyone out there; we know it’s going to be a great time!”
While Mark Tremonti commented, “We are really happy to be partnering up once again with HardDrive for our upcoming US tour. We are equally as excited to tour with an awesome band as co-headliner. Our friends in Trivium!”
This is the seventh year of the music tour. Last year, Black Stone Cherry headlined the annual music tour, with We As Human and Kyng also on the bill. While in 2013, Bullet for My Valentine took on the headlining duties, with Halestorm and Young Guns acting as support.
