Staind and friends ready to hit Southwest Florida

By Staff | Mar 12, 2009

Better hurry and get your tickets … LiveX hits the stage of the City of Palms Park in early April with featured acts Staind, Chevelle, Madina Lake and Cavo.
Staind is no stranger to the streets of Fort Myers, and its show April 11 is no different.
First hitting the stages of the public eye in 1995, Aaron Lewis and his band won over the hearts of fans with the repeated success of their albums, “Tormented,” “Dysfunction,” “14 Shades of Grey,” “Chapter V” and “The Illusion of Progress.”
With such hits as “Mudshovel,” “Home,” “It’s Been Awhile,” “Outside,” “So Far Away” and “Believe,” Aaron and Staind have a way of pouring their hearts and souls into their music without sounding too whiney in the process.

Chevelle is another group that formed in 1995, but really did not start attracting the attention from its hard-rock fans until about 2003 when its single “The Red” — from its “Wonder What’s Next” album — was released.
It was a smash hit, reaching as high as No. 3 on the rock charts.
Chevelle really cemented its success with its next two hits, “Closure” and “Send the Pain Below,” both reaching No. 1 on numerous charts.
The band was truly born.

Madina Lake
Madina Lake is a pretty new band when compared to the other two big guys on the bill. But, what it lacks in age, it makes up for in rock skills.
With a hard edge but soft demeanor, the Illinois boys of Madina Lake carry the vocal and the musical talent that will surely take them to the top.
In its debut album, “From Them, Through Us, to You,” the group’s music provides an outlet for the band’s views on politics, culture and the media’s obsession with celebrity status.
This is definitely a group to watch in the coming years. Visit: MadinaLake.com.
