After revealing last week that they will be touring together and launching a contest to name the trek, Godsmack, Staind and Halestorm have announced U.S. dates. The hard rock trifecta will come to the Kellogg Arena this Spring.

The Mass Chaos Tour will launch April 13 in Augusta, GA and will end May 18 in Bangor, ME. West Michigan will see the live show on May 9 at the Kellogg Arena in Battle Creek.

“We’re very excited to get back out with our Massachusetts brothers again,” says Godsmack singer Sully Erna in regards to Staind. “It’s been a pinch too long, and all hell is about to break loose!”

Staind frontman Aaron Lewis adds: “Going on tour with Godsmack was a no-brainer. Our fans are in for one hell of a rock show.”

Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale expressed her excitement for the Mass Chaos Tour.

“I am stoked to be supporting Godsmack and Staind on this tour,” says the Halestorm frontwoman. “To be touring with the two bands of my generation that paved the way for modern rock is an honor! This line up will crush your skulls!”

Apparently Hell and violence is the theme for this tour. See the full dates below.

Tickets for the Battle Creek show start at $39.75 and go on sale Friday, February 10. Fans can enter a contest to create the tour poster for a chance to win $500 and other prizes by clicking here.

I know where I’ll be on May 9. I’ll be Lzzy Hale’s boyfriend for the day…..probably not.
