Five Finger Death Punch recently released their fourth single, “I Apologize,” from their No. 1 album “Got Your Six.” In the U.S., it debuted at No. 1 on Top Album chart, No. 1 on the Overall Digital Album chart, and No. 1 on the Hard Music Album chart, as well as at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200, and sold 115K in the first week of release. This was the first No. 1 Album for the Las Vegas hard rockers. Five Finger Death Punch have grown exponentially in just a few years, racking up 16 consecutive Top 10 hits, five No. 1 hits, six gold, and one platinum album.

Shinedown’s latest single “Asking for It” – the third off of the multi-platinum band’s current album, “Threat to Survival” – follows back-to-back No. 1 singles “Cut the Cord” and “State of My Head” and is currently in the Top 3 at rock radio. Known worldwide for their unparalleled streak of hits, Shinedown is one of the most successful rock bands of the 21st century. Their unmatched ascendancy over multi-format rock radio has seen the band achieve a record-setting 20 No. 1 singles. Hailed by fans as a fiery and always exciting live act, Shinedown has shared their explosive performances with audiences across the globe.

Formed in 2007, Sixx:A.M.’s mission has remained steadfast: to provide the masses with iconic hard rock that boasts unrivaled musicianship. Comprised of vocalist and producer James Michael, guitarist DJ Ashba, and bassist Nikki Sixx, the band has previously released four studio albums – “The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack” (2007), “This Is Gonna Hurt” (2011), “Modern Vintage” (2014), and “Prayers for the Damned” (2016) – and have sold over 1 million albums globally.

As Lions, comprised of vocalist Austin Dickinson (son of Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson), guitarists Conor O’Keefe and Will Homer, bassist Stefan Whiting, and drummer Dave Fee, formed in late 2014 and have been on the road ever since. This year, As Lions will release their debut album, produced by multi-platinum award-winning producer David Bendeth (Paramore, Papa Roach), on Better Noise Records.
