Take the pledge this summer and celebrate American rock & roll with the debut of an exciting new package tour: the ROCK ALLEGIANCE TOUR featuring co-headliners Buckcherry and Papa Roach with Puddle of Mudd, P.O.D., Red, Crossfade and Drive A.

Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix says, “I’m f**king super-stoked to be on this tour.  It’s our last tour before we go away for a while and make a new record so it’s gonna be an all-out throw down.  No place I’d rather be than on a bill of kick-ass rock and roll bands.  It’s an amazing way to wrap up our touring cycle on Time for Annihilation.”

Set to kick off August 24 in Dallas, TX, the tour will unite these seven rock bands for an unforgettable American summer rock & roll party with a ticket price under $30.  The month-long ROCK ALLEGIANCE TOUR is presented by RIGHT ARM ENTERTAINMENT.

Buckcherry lead vocalist Josh Todd says, “Buckcherry is ready to join forces with our friends Papa Roach, Puddle of Mudd, P.O.D., Red, Crossfade and Drive A for some fun in the sun that doesn’t stress your wallet. Come out and rock with us–we’ll make it a summer you’ll never forget!”

Co-President of Right Arm Entertainment Del Williams who–along with Right Arm Entertainment’s Gary Spivack and Danny Wimmer–are presenting the ROCK ALLEGIANCE TOUR, says, “The Rock Allegiance Tour pledges an unforgettable evening of loud riffs & cheap tix for Rock fans across America.  With seven bands and discounted ticket prices on every tour stop, this will be THEE Rock & Roll party of the summer.”  Right Arm Entertainment also co-produce Columbus, Ohio’s annual Rock On The Range, which this year celebrated its fifth anniversary, Carolina Rebellion in Charlotte, NC and Southern California’s annual EPICENTER festival.

“This is a real rock tour for real rock fans,” says Puddle of Mudd’s Wes Scantlin.  “We’re looking forward to ending the summer with our good friends.  The Rock Allegiance Tour is where it’s at.  See ya there!”

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
