Daughtry has been touring behind their new album, “Break The Spell” and Friday night, April 20 found them stopping by NJ’s own Monmouth University for a tour stop at The MAC. I have never been to this venue before, but I was struck right away about how nice it was. I had heard good things and I knew we were all in for a good night.

Daughtry brought Mike Sanchez and a band I really love, Safetysuit, along for support. I was excited for Safetysuit to play, and the people I talked to around me siad that they were fantastic live. They came out while Daughtry’s set was draped with a white cover, and for 8 songs, they owned every inch of that stage. Opening with “Believe” which is a new track from their album, These Times. They started their set off on a high note.

Hailing from Oklahoma, Safetysuit is made up of Doug Brown on lead vocals and guitar, Dave Garofalo on guitar, Jeremy Henshaw on bass and Tate Cunningham on drums. They had some success a few years back with their Life Left To Go album and their next song, “Something I Said” was from that album. Most of their set was from their new album. “Let Go”, “Staring At It”, “These Times” and the closer, “Stay.” They also included an absolutely beautiful rendition of “Hallelujah”. I absolutely love that song and they did an incredible job. Their next to last song, “The Moment” was the only one on their previous album.

The energy was high for their whole set. Garofalo was all over the place, spinning and jumping. Brown’s vocals were on point and you could feel every emotion coming off of him. He came into the audience more than once, and for the last song he strapped a camera on his head, and literally ran all over the arena. From the first row all the way up to the top. Making everyone feel like a part of the show. They sounded and looked great, and the set felt too short.

Daughtry were up next and you could feel the packed house holding their breath for him. The stage was still covered with a huge white backdrop that showed random pictures of Daughtry and other things while the riffs of “Renegade” started. After 20 seconds or so, the backdrop fell down to reveal the band in full rock mode. Say what you will about Chris Daughtry and his band, but they certainly know how to put on a good rock show. It was clear that it was going to be a fun night.

The stage had a huge red banner across the back with Daughtry written on it, flanked by two smaller white banners with red stars. The drum kit was up on a riser made to look like it was made out of bricks. In dead center was Chris Daughtry flanked by 3 of his band members. “Renegade” is a heavier track of theirs and it got everyone’s energy up right away. Chris Daughtry is known world wide for being on American Idol, but since then he has built up a catalog of really solid songs, and he has become a great front-man for his band. And it does feel like a band. Although it bears his name, Daughtry never once acted like he was the star that he is.

Their next two songs kept the energy high. “Break The Spell” and “Feels Like Tonight.” Backing Chris was Josh Steely on lead guitar, Josh Paul on bass, Brian Craddock on rhythm guitar and Robin Diaz on drums. He also had a 5th member who was pretty much hidden behind the drum riser, but he played keyboards and guitar for the whole show. I would like to say again how nice of a place The MAC is. It certainly doesn’t feel like you’re at a college. The band sounded amazing, and the stage show was on point.

Daughtry said early on that they would be playing a lot of new songs and it was true, they played almost their whole new album. “Crawling Back To You”, “Losing My Mind”, “Outta My Head”, “Crazy” and “Start of Something Good” were next, all new tracks. They were polished like they had been playing them for years though. After that round of new songs, Chris came out and played a couple old ones acoustically. “What About Now” and one of his earliest hits, “Home.” Before “Home” he talked to the audience a bit about his first big record meeting and playing that song for the guys who would eventually sign him. He played one more song by himself, a brand new track called “4 AM”. He wrote it as part of an Esquire song writing contest for charity and it was absolutely gorgeous.

The band joined him on stage for the next song, “Spaceship”. Before this song the banners with the stars dropped down and the whole background became a mass of colors and then shooting stars. It was pretty and fitting, based on the track they played. “Louder Than Ever” was next then a couple of back to back older hits, “Over you” and “No Surprise.” The Tom Petty cover “Runnin’ Down A Dream” was next followed by “September.” The Petty cover was a surprise but they did it justice.

They left and come out for two more songs for their encore. Another cover, “Rebel Yell” was first and it was pretty fantastic.And then they closed out their show with their first hit, “It’s Not Over” which struck me as ironic, since in fact, the show was indeed over after this song.

I left having a new respect for Chris Daughtry and his band. I would say I have been a casual fan of theirs over the years. Some of their songs I liked more than others but overall I don’t know what kind of show I expected them to put on. There aren’t many “rock” bands these days it seems. Rock radio is dead in the NYC area and so many bands coming up scream most of their songs. Chris has great pipes whether he is singing cleanly or a little rougher. Their set was pretty long but everyone kept the energy up the whole time. Combined with the great light show and visuals, it just felt like a great rock show. Not to mention how great Safetysuit was live, this is definitely a great tour to catch if they come to your area.

DAUGHTRY has announced the first leg of its upcoming tour in support of the multi-platinum selling rock band’s third album, Break The Spell (19 Recordings/RCA Records). Tickets go on sale over the next two weeks beginning Friday January 20th.

Daughtry’s “Break The Spell Tour” will begin its first leg on March 20 in Buffalo, NY and continue through April 30 when it concludes in New York, NY. Singer Chris Daughtry, guitarists Josh Steely and Brian Craddock, bassist Josh Paul and drummer Robin Diaz are excited to bring their bigger than life show into theaters across the country to provide an intimate experience for fans.

Daughtry is pleased to welcome special guest Nashville-based pop rock group SafetySuit whose new album These Times debuted No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Opening the show is singer-songwriter Mike Sanchez.

Daughtry is also dedicated to using its position to raise awareness about a number of charitable causes. For the “Break The Spell 2012 Tour,” the band will help combat Africa’s battle against malaria by donating $1 from every ticket sold to Malaria No More, a leading humanitarian organization determined to end malaria deaths in Africa by 2015.

The upcoming first leg of the tour will give fans a chance to experience a number of new tracks from Break The Spell, like the chart-climbing hits “Crawling Back To You”and “Renegade.” Singer Chris Daughtry says: “We recorded a hard-hitting rock album that is primed to blow the doors off these great theaters. Fans who come out are going to get an incredible show every night.”

Daughtry has scored four No. 1 hits, garnered four Grammy nominations, sold over seven million albums and played sold out concerts around the world in less than four years. Daughtry’s self-titled debut was the fastest selling rock debut in Soundscan history and its follow up Leave This Town marked the quintet’s second consecutive No. 1 album. Daughtry’s latest album Break The Spell, which was certified gold in 4 weeks, builds on the band’s reputation for melodic hooks and anthemic choruses while providing a powerful showcase for Chris Daughtry’s emotionally resonant voice.

Multi-platinum selling rock band DAUGHTRY has announced details about its highly anticipated third album, which will be called Break The Spell. It will be released by 19 Recordings/RCA Records on November 21st – five years to the day that the band released its self-titled 5x-platinum debut album, which shot straight to No. 1, as did the group’s second, 2009′s platinum Leave This Town. Two tracks have been released to radio: “Renegade,” which is climbing the chart at Rock, and “Crawling Back To You,” which was the No. 1 Most-Added track at Hot AC this week and could become the band’s fifth No. 1 at the format.

Break the Spell is a gleaming showcase for frontman Chris Daughtry’s powerful, emotionally resonant voice and knack for relentless melodic hooks and big, anthemic choruses. Produced by Howard Benson, who produced Daughtry’s two previous albums, Break The Spell gives the band room to evolve musically while aiming to satisfy its many long-time fans. “Going in to the writing sessions, we said, ‘Let’s not try to sound like anything. Let’s just write, and see what happens,’” says Chris, who co-wrote every song with either one of his band-mates (guitarists Josh Steely and Brian Craddock and bassist Josh Paul) or collaborators such as Marti Frederiksen, Busbee, and Bret James. “We came up with some pretty interesting tunes that sound nothing like anything we’ve done before. Even though some of them didn’t make the album, the process stretched us and took us to new places. It was an absolutely inspirational experience.”

The risk-taking is apparent on such primal, slithering rockers as the hard-driving “Renegade,” which Entertainment Weekly praised for its “wind-in-your-eyes hook and leather-glove-to-the-sky chorus” calling it “the ideal soundtrack for hitting the highway.” “I wanted it to be really upbeat and hard-hitting,” Chris explains. “At the same time, “Crawling Back To You” is a more uplifting and hopeful song that will appeal to fans who have been with us from the start.” More details about Break The Spell, including the track-listing, will be released in the coming weeks so stay tuned to www.daughtryofficial.com.

In other Daughtry news, the band has a song featured on the soundtrack to the video game Batman: Arkham City, a heavy rocker called “Drown In You” that is exclusive to the soundtrack, which will be released on October 4th. Daughtry is also featured on the upcoming ZZ Top tribute album A Tribute From Friends with a cover of “Waitin’ For The Bus/Jesus Just Left Chicago” due out October 11th.

The result is an eclectic mix of dynamic, atmospheric songs for an album that will appeal to fans of both the artists and Batman: Arkham City. Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez said, “I write in a very conceptual format with the stories that surround Coheed and Cambria, but Batman has a much larger, defined history and rules that go along with it.

Published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal master-minds.

The music and legacy of ZZ TOP–“That Little ol’ Band from Texas,” that has been part of the world’s musical landscape for over 40 years–will be celebrated with the October 11th release of A TRIBUTE FROM FRIENDS.

The album, to be released by Show Dog-Universal Music, features 11 classic ZZ Top songs interpreted by top-flight artists working in a broad range of musical genres. All of the album’s tracks have been newly recorded, specifically for the project. These include Filter’s performance of “Gimme All Your Lovin’,” Grace Potter & The Nocturnals’ take on “Tush,” as well as Wyclef Jean’s “Rough Boy,” “Legs” from Nickelback and Wolfmother’s interpretation of “Cheap Sunglasses.”

The album kicks off with “Sharp Dressed Man,” from The M.O.B., Mick Fleetwood’s ad hoc group that includes fellow Fleetwood Mac founder John McVie as well as Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and guitar great Jonny Lang. Fleetwood commented, “We’re delighted to honor ZZ Top this way. Their legacy, like that of the original Fleetwood Mac, is steeped in the blues we all love so much. I know that Steven and Jonny feel as strongly about their legacy as John and I do.”

After Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard, the original–and continuing–members of ZZ Top were informed that A Tribute From Friends was in the offing, they issued the following statement:

“When we were told there was going to be a ZZ Top tribute album a while ago and logically asked, ‘Who are we paying tribute to?’ Then we found out that a bunch of great artists were paying tribute to us and we were in disbelief. For the past 40 or so years, all we’ve done is get out there and crank it and try to have a good time while doing so. To a great extent, we’ve succeeded since we’re still having a good time so that would be reward enough for ‘the same three guys playing the same three chords.’ Now comes A Tribute From Friends and we’re so delighted that our music resonates with these great musicians whom we so admire.”

A Tribute From Friends also includes “Waitin’ for the Bus/Jesus Just Left Chicago” by Daughtry, “Got Me Under Pressure” from Duff McKagan’s LOADED and Mastodon’s version of “Just Got Paid.” Coheed & Cambria contributed the anthemic “Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers” while country superstar Jamey Johnson’s track is the seminal “La Grange.” Of their invitation to be a part of the album, lead singer Chris Daughtry said, “We were completely honored! A classic great band with amazing songs? We’re in!” And of ZZ Top’s music, “It’s classic! Simple chord progressions, great riffs with hooky choruses…very inspiring to a band like us.”

The co-executive producer of A Tribute From Friends is Carl Stubner, ZZ Top’s manager, who noted, “A Tribute From Friends underscores the legacy of ZZ Top in the most musical way possible and illustrates just how important Billy, Dusty and Frank have been to successive generations. It was a privilege to work with the pantheon of brilliant artists who contributed their efforts and so much love to this project.”

Since Billy, Dusty and Frank founded ZZ TOP on the last day of 1969, the band has been responsible for the worldwide sale of over 50 million records highlighted by many of the very same songs heard on A Tribute From Friends as well many others including “Sharp Dressed Man,” “Pearl Necklace,” “I’m Bad, I’m Nationwide,” “Tube Snake Boogie” and a score of smash hit albums that include the RIAA Diamond Award winning (10 million sold) Eliminator as well as gold and platinum winners Afterburner, Fandango!, Deguello, Recycler, Antenna, El Loco, Tejas, Tres Hombres plus compilation sets. Their hit repertoire, iconic and award-winning videos and massive touring schedule has made them a favorite with audiences throughout the world and beyond – they previewed a track from their forthcoming album aboard the Soyuz space vehicle. They are recipients of the Texas Cultural Trust’s 2011 Texas Medal of the Art and had previously been named “Official Texas Heroes” by the state’s House of Representatives. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones in 2004 who cited the band’s remarkable consistency and longevity and, first and foremost, the fact that ZZ Top is “steeped in the blues,” calling them “the heartbeat of the whole country and the heartbeat of rock ‘n’ roll.”

Making their first U.S. concert appearance in four years – and playing their only U.S. show in 2010 – GUNS N’ ROSES has been officially recruited with DAUGHTRY to join the inaugural ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL and cement its assault on the legendary Sturgis Rally’s 70th Anniversary celebration in Sturgis, SD, at the newly constructed Rock N’ Rev Amphitheater at Monkey Rock USA.

GUNS N’ ROSES will headline the fifth and final night of the festival, as it moves to the Brand New Rock ‘N Rev Amphitheater at Monkey Rock USA in Sturgis, adjacent to its original location. L.A.’s notorious rock ‘n’ roll bad boys – one of Q magazine’s “50 Bands to See Before You Die” – have combined forces with HDlogix and DC3 Global for this rare and very special appearance on home soil to bring the “full-out rock ‘n’ roll spectacle” (Spin) of their 2010 “Chinese Democracy World Tour” to Sturgis and finish off the hijacking of the world’s biggest, baddest biker event, Monday, Aug. 9 through Friday, Aug. 13, 2010.

GUNS N’ ROSES’ final night performance, immediately following previously announced Aug. 13 headliner Alice in Chains, is the ultimate climax to five full nights of undeniable rock ‘n’ roll bedlam, and now gives the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL six of the most explosive, multi-platinum AMERICAN Active Rock Bands of 2010. DAUGHTRY, supporting its second consecutive #1 album, will join 3 Doors Down, Hinder and others on Aug. 12, the 4th night of the ROCK N’ REV FESTIVAL.

In order to welcome GUNS N’ ROSES and DAUGHTRY to the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL, new festival owners HDlogix and its producers, DC3 Global, are starting construction immediately on the Rock N’ Rev Amphitheater at Monkey Rock USA, a new custom-built amphitheater on a 25-acre site at Monkey Rock designed to maximize logistical opportunities while enhancing the overall experience for everyone attending – from the bands to the fans.

“We are truly blessed to be able to announce the addition of GUNS N’ ROSES at this historic moment in the band’s history, along with DAUGHTRY, just as we relocate the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL to our own Amphitheater at Monkey Rock USA,” said DC3’s co-founder, Daniel E. Catullo III. “Monkey Rock’s vision to create a nationally recognized brand among the world’s top motorcycle rallies is a perfect fit for us, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them as our partners.”

ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL’s relationship with Glencoe Campground is amicable amid the change in logistics. As such, they are working together to arrange special VIP accommodations at the festival for all Glencoe campers that week.

Raising the insanity level to previously unimaginable heights, GUNS N’ ROSES and DAUGHTRY are just the latest high octane multi-platinum rockers to join the growing list of bands at the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL. They unite with fellow headliners Stone Temple Pilots, Godsmack, Creed, Alice in Chains and 3 Doors Down to establish the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL as “The Home of Rock’s Hardest New Chart Toppers” – a different one topping each night’s lineup.

Tickets for the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL are $45 per day, general admission ($150 for a five-day pass), and ON SALE NOW through Ticketmaster.com and rocknrevfestival.com and at all Ticketmaster locations, or by calling Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000. Tickets also will be available in person beginning August 5, 2010 on location at the Festival’s on-site box office. For more information on exclusive VIP packages ($150 for a single day, $300 for all five days or $1,000 5 day platinum packages), including backstage access to a VIP area to special, air-conditioned tents with private bars, motorcycle parking, luxury bathroom facilities and more, go to rocknrevfestival.com.

With an unrivaled lineup of twenty bands over five nights and spectacular fireworks displays each night at Monkey Rock USA, the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL promises to be the hands-down largest party ever thrown at the world’s largest motorcycle event, which annually draws over a half million patrons. World famous showman Jim Rose and his circus are set to emcee the five-day event and help give attendees a show they will never forget.

ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL’s sweltering lineup also includes Three Days Grace, Hellyeah, Cage The Elephant, Theft, Sweet Cyanide, Charm City Devils, Rev Theory, Eagles of Death Metal, The Darling Stilettos (featuring former GNR drummer Matt Sorum), Pop Evil, Skillet, and Swayback — just some of the bands making massive music at this colossal biker bash.

Everything about the ROCK ‘N REV FESTIVAL will appeal to the “leather and chrome” sensibilities in everyone who attends…from those who embody the biker lifestyle to the more casually minded weekend warriors and their families. The Vendor Village will be overflowing with an assortment of food, clothing, gear and other accessories, top tattoo artists and the best barbeque and related cooking specialists from the nation’s sauciest hotspots such as Austin, Memphis, Chicago, and New Orleans. The overall Mardi Gras atmosphere will recall some of Europe’s top festivals, with a decidedly American flair. After all, biking and rock ‘n’ roll are two of America’s greatest heritages.

Daughtry will premiere its new video for “September” online today on the music network Vevo.

Directed by Chris Sims, the highly personal video features singer Chris Daughtry, bassist Josh Paul, drummer Robin Diaz, and guitarists Brian Craddock and Josh Steely playing live and looking back at their the past.

The third single from the group’s #1 platinum album Leave This Town, September continues to climb steadily on radio charts, approaching the Top 10. Chris Daughtry and Josh Steely wrote September together, a bittersweet ballad that draws on the singer’s experiences growing up in a North Carolina town of 100 people.

“September reminds me of my life in Lasker,” Daughtry explains. “I loved living there, it built my character, but knew I’d have leave to make something out of my life.”

Daughtry also announced it will once again perform at Rockefeller Center, taking part in the Today Show’s Toyota Concert Series for the second consecutive year. The band’s live performance will be featured throughout the broadcast Friday, August 20.

Recently, Daughtry completed its hugely successful, first-ever headlining arena tour, which began last summer. The group will continue to perform select dates in the U.S this summer then make stops in Europe, South Africa and Asia this fall.
