Meet the MAKE AMERICA ROCK AGAIN 2017 Artists:

Scott Stapp’s artistic and personal journey have encompassed all the talent and torment imaginable in scaling to musical success. The founding member of Creed chronicled his questions, his quest for answers, and his dreams from faith to fatherhood in chart topping hits, “My Own Prison”, “Higher”, and “With Arms Wide Open”, which dominated the sonic landscape of the 90s-2000s. His soul-piercing lyrics backed by thundering rock riffs garnered a Grammy Award, and countless other accolades of creativity and chart domination, not to mention legions of fans, who felt a kindred spirit in his honesty. Since his original departure from Creed, Stapp has released two solo albums (The Great Divide, 2005 and Proof of Life, 2013 [#1 on Christian charts]), a revealing memoir (Sinner’s Creed, 2012), and a “rebirthed” Creed album, (Full Circle, 2009). In addition to his thriving solo career, Stapp is also the lead singer of the new supergroup Art of Anarchy, whose first album with Stapp, The Madness, was released earlier this year. |

Scott Stapp says, “I’m excited to headline MAKE AMERICA ROCK AGAIN! We’ve got a great line-up that I’m looking forward to touring with. It’s going to be a great summer of rock and roll for the bands and the fans.”

Since bursting onto the rock scene, Sick Puppies have sold over one million records and reached a RIAA Gold album certification for their breakout second full-length, Tri-Polar, which yielded two million in single sales. This included the gold-certified “You’re Going Down” as well as rock smashes “Maybe”, “Riptide” and “Odd One”. |

Emma Anzai of Sick Puppies adds, “Can’t wait to hit the stage with our good friends for the MAKE AMERICA ROCK AGAIN tour, we’re pumped and ready to go! See ya out there.”

Drowning Pool skyrocketed to fame with their debut album, Sinner, which was certified platinum just six weeks after its release. The band have more than fifteen years of success at commercial rock radio, driven by the hard rock anthems “Bodies”, “Tear Away” and “Sinner”, and hits including “37 Stitches”, “Step Up”, “Feel Like I Do” and “One Finger And A Fist”, to name just a few. Drowning Pool continue to support their latest release, Hellelujah (2016, eOne), and are currently at work on their seventh studio album while continuing to perform worldwide. Known for their unwavering support of the military, the band will celebrate on July 4, 2017 by performing for the troops at Guantanamo Bay, and also have summer shows for the U.S. military in Honduras, Romania and Bulgaria. They participated in the inaugural MAKE AMERICA ROCK AGAIN tour in 2016, and are proud to have been asked to return for the 2017 run. |

In a band statement, Drowning Pool says, “We can’t wait to return to the road and MAKE AMERICA ROCK AGAIN – last year’s dates were a blast, but pound-for-pound this year looks to be even bigger and better and is sure to be a don’t-miss experience. Drowning Pool and Scott Stapp were labelmates early in our careers, and it will be great to finally tour with him, our friends in Sick Puppies and Trapt, and our new friends in Adelitas Way. Together, we will… (wait for it)… (keep waiting)… MAKE AMERICA ROCK AGAIN! Can’t wait to see everyone on the road!”

Las Vegas-based hard rock outfit Adelitas Way formed in 2006, but it wasn’t until 2009 that they broke into the mainstream. Their anthemic song, “Invincible”, from their self-titled debut album climbed its way into numerous television spots on CSI Miami, WWE Superstars, the Fox Sports Network, ESPN’s Monday Night Football, and the American League Championship Series on Fox. Adelitas Way released its debut on Virgin Records in July 2009. The band’s sophomore effort, Home School Valedictorian, arrived in Summer 2011, spawning four top five singles – including two #1 hits at rock radio. The record was the band’s highest selling album to date, selling over 150,000 copies and close to one million singles. The band’s third album, Stuck, was released in 2014, and spawned a top 10 single with “Dog on a Leash” (#6) at active rock. Adelitas Way followed up with their fourth album, Getaway, in 2016 and will release their fifth album, Notorious, this year. |

Adelitas Way frontman Rick DeJesus says, “We love to rock and we love America, so this tour makes sense for us! We are ready to put on electric sets every night of this tour and set the tone for the amazing night music fans will have.”
