At this point, its in secret that Immortal Music is based in the southern parts of Florida, right? That 'secret' stands very strong with the latest announcement regarding the third annual Fort Rock. There's mixed feelings for Immortal Music regarding this event, though it has nothing to do with the event itself. Its more with the venue, but we decided not long after the lineup for 2015's Fort Rock was announced that maybe we judged a bit too harshly.
The 2013 Fort Rock was the first concert Jetblue Park had ever held (or at least, it was the first festival), so things were quite disorganized. This lead to an awful experience, that caused us to leave only two hours after getting there. Its not the festival's fault, but the memories did stop us from attending the 2014 Fort Rock, despite the killer lineup.
This coming year's announcement is frankly even more tempting than this year's. We personally are incredibly intrigued to see Breaking Benjamin back in action, We Are Harlot, Motionless In White again, as well as Slipknot, The Pretty Reckless and Papa Roach. The fact that Breaking Benjamin is officially back now, excites thousands. After they went on their hiatus, and it was made known that it was for health reasons on Ben's part at first, it looked as though they would never return. That was a disappointing thought, as they do put on a great show. They were at the first rock concert Immortal Music's founder ever went to, and they have not returned to the state of Florida ever since that year.
Some research showed Slipknot has barely played Florida at all in the past few years, and they're one of those bands that we sort of feel everyone needs to see at least once. We saw Motionless In White in 2011, but they were new to Immortal Music so we feel that maybe their performance wasn't enjoyed as much as it could have been. We'd love to give them a second chance.
The lineup just looks incredible, and because of that, Immortal Music is greatly considering going. Forms have already been filled out, and we are just waiting confirmation about press for this event. If it is granted, we will be asking for interviews with several of the bands. We already have a pending one with Tony Palmero from Papa Roach, so we are trying to decide if we will be asking Papa Roach for a second interview or not. We currently plan on asking for interviews with Slipknot, Godsmack, Breaking Benjamin, In This Moment, The Pretty Reckless, Motionless In White and We are Harlot. Surely not all of these will be granted, but with so many being asked for, chances are someone will say yes. So, if you have questions for any of the bands previously mentioned, please feel free to send them to me here in the comments, or through Facebook or Twitter.
Reviews on the latest albums for all the bands will be coming soon, as long as time permits it. Stay tuned for that! For more information regarding Fort Rock, including the full lineup and ticket prices, please click here!
