Rock On the Range 2013 Full Lineup Boasts Soundgarden, Alice In Chains & More
90′s rockers will get more than their moneys worth at the seventh annual Rock On the Range, which features a grunge-tastic set of headliners the likes of which have not been seen since the early days of Lollapalooza. Soundgarden will be the main attraction, likely playing a set populated by a mixture of classics and songs from their comeback album ‘King Animal.’
Second on the bill is Alice in Chains, whose new album is set for release at some point this spring. Whether or not the album drops before the festival, which runs May 17-19 and is now a full three days, co-frontman/guitarist Jerry Cantrell says fans can expect some new AIC jams.“We’re really looking forward to returning to Rock On The Range with a batch of brand new killer Alice tunes to play for everyone!” Sound like they’re just as excited to play the new tunes as we are to hear them (click here for the latest on the new Alice in Chains album).
Smashing Pumpkins will also be on hand for the festival, who released their most potent, and undeniably Pumpkin-esque album in over a decade with ‘Oceania’ last year. Other highlights found on the incredible roster include Korn, Stone Sour, Bush, Papa Roach, Halestorm and a sneak peek at Dave Draiman of Disturbed’s new project — Device.
Much like last years schedule, which featured bitter rivals Falling in Reverse and Escape the Fate, ROTR 2013 definitely has its share of bands with troubled relationships. Lead Smashing Pumpkin Billy Corgan is on record calling the Soundgarden reunion nothing more than a “cash grab,” to which they’ve responded several times. All That Remains and Black Veil Brides may have some issues as well, after we inadvertently started a war of words between the two bands by making them face off against each other in The Cockfight.
The full Rock On the Range 2013 lineup is as follows:
