COAL CHAMBER To Join Forces With Their Former "Enemies" In SEVENDUST?
Late last year, SEVENDUST guitarist Cling Lowery announced that SEVENDUST were might be joining forces with COAL CHAMBER for a massive tour!
Well, according to Blabbermouth, COAL CHAMBER and SEVENDUST will be teaming up for a U.S. co-headlining tour this April. Thus far, only one date has been revealed: April 4 at the Diamond Ballroom in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
In 2003, the two bands engaged in a well-publicized feud and even SEVENDUST dedicated their single "Enemy" to COAL CHAMBER's very own Dez Farara. Morgan Rose from SEVENDUST told Tacoma, Washington's The News Tribune at the time about the war of words:
"It's been pretty humorous, actually, because, to be honest, [Dez is] not really someone who's important to society. So it's not like I'm talking about anyone that many people really know about." He continued: "COAL CHAMBER was a really popular band. Now they're not a band anymore, and my [then-]wife [bassist Rayna Foss] was probably the most popular member. The irony of this whole thing was I didn't want to give him any press. ... It was laid out on a press release that I kind of got tricked into. I wanted it to be a more universal song. A lot of people have people they don't like, that treat people that they care about with no respect. [My wife is] the reason I was mad at him in the first place. He treated her awful, while she was pregnant with my daughter inside of her. He was completely stressing her out and making her upset."
Stay tuned for more news about this touring package!
Don't forget that SEVENDUST will set out on a headlining tour with Lacuna Coil starting February 2, 2013 in Winston-Salem, NC at Ziggy’s. Tickets are on sale now! Fans should check their local ticket outlets for purchase info.
