World-renowned drummer Gil Sharone of STOLEN BABIES is pleased to announce that he will be hosting an artist workshop at Guitar Center’s first Musician’s Expo on Saturday, April 6th at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, CA. Guitar Center’s Musician’s Expo gives the public a sneak peek at the best of next season’s music gear from the music instrument industry’s leading manufacturers, along with artist workshops, group lessons, panel discussions and more, all at one location. Gil Sharone, who is also known around the globe for his impressive work in the reggae world, as well as with bands like Dillinger Escape Plan and +44, will host the workshop at 4:00pm on the day of the event. He will be joined by musicians Chino Moreno (Deftones), Todd Wilkinson (Team Sleep) and Chuck Doom (Crosses). For more information on the expo, visit ModernDrummer.com’s news post on the subject.

Gil Sharone recently announced that he joined the Vater endorsement family! Gil’s fresh perspective on drumming, dedication, and his love for the craft have allowed him to play with many artists he came up listening to like Fishbone, Dillinger Escape Plan, OTEP, Dave Wakeling, Maynard James Keenan, Tom Morello, HR, and Eek-A-Mouse to name a few. Vater took notice to this and once he tried out the sticks, Gil knew it was a match made in drumming heaven.

Marking their first U.S. live performances in over 10 years, 90’s alt-metal band COAL CHAMBER is pleased to announce that they are back in action and kicking off a co-headline tour with Sevendust this spring. The tour will also feature special guests Lacuna Coil as direct support on each date, as well as Candlelight Red and Stolen Babies opening on either half of the run (see the split below). See below for a full listing of North American tour dates.

 

Each member of COAL CHAMBER had words to share about the announcement.

 

“I’m STOKED to be bringing COAL CHAMBER back to the United States,” exclaims vocalist Dez Fafara. “These shows are going to fucking rule! The line-up is perfect! Hope to see you all there!”

 

“The past has fuelled the fire to bring COAL CHAMBER back stronger than ever,” adds drummer Mike Cox. “I couldn’t be more excited to tour the states on an amazing tour. HERE WE GO!”

 

“I’m really excited and grateful to be a part of such an awesome bill! We will be slaying it across America and the world,” adds guitarist Meegs Rascón.

 

Bassist Chela Rhea Harper states, “America is where COAL CHAMBER started; where the music first came to life.  The entire experience in Australia and South America has been so surreal up until this point, and to be able to continue this adventure on the band’s home soil is an honor. The support from all has been tremendous.”
