WRIF Presents: Buckcherry, POD, Lit, and Alien Ant Farm at Stars and Stripes Festival
June 30 @ 6:15 PM - 11:00 PM| $3 - $5
On their seventh full-length album, Rock ‘n’ Roll [F-Bomb Records/Caroline], the Los
Angeles quintet—Josh Todd [vocals], Nelson, Stevie D. [guitar], Xavier Muriel [drums],
and Kelly LeMieux [bass]—staunchly uphold the commandments of rock music with an
arsenal of new anthems primed to explode on impact and teeming with riotous energy, swagger, and primal chops intact. It’s something that the boys have done since
day one, but it’s more necessary now than ever.
P.O.D. (Payable on Death) formed in San Diego, CA, in 1992, and have since charted their own
course with worldwide sales exceeding 10 million, hugely successful international tours, and a series
of chart-topping radio hits. Over the span of two decades they have released eight studio albums of
original songs – including the triple-platinum Satellite – seen chart success with more than a dozen
Rock radio hits, including “Southtown,” “Alive,” “Youth of the Nation,” and “Boom,” the Active Rock
hit “Beautiful” and their No. 1 single, “Lost In Forever,” received three GRAMMY Award®
nominations, and racked up four No. 1 music videos.
Lit just wrapped a 30+ city North American Summer Tour, a chunk of which is part of
Summerland Tour with Sugar Ray, Everclear, and Sponge. The tours showcased a
new and buzz-worthy sonic direction for Lit into the Country realm. As
Nashville SONY/ATV writers, Jeremy Popoff and his frontman brother A. Jay have
immersed themselves in the Country music world with constant songwriting trips,
continuing to further their friendships – both on and off the stage – with some
of the biggest names in Country music. Lit recently joined Dustin Lynch at
Stagecoach Festival to deliver “My Own Worst Enemy” to over 50,000 of
Country’s most dedicated fans. The new sound of Lit shows a natural progression
into a genre they’ve long been connected to. Their brand new music video for
the song “Fast” will be debuted by CMT on Oct 26th.
Alien Ant Farm
Since the formation of Alien Ant Farm in 1995, the quartet has enjoyed worldwide success. Over the
course of their four studio albums, cumulative sales surpass five million units a Grammy nomination and
4 top 10 singles. The band built a massive following on the road early in their career via high profile
2001 runs with Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Warped, and as the headliner on an MTV presented Fall Tour.
In 2002, fame spread across the world, bringing Alien Ant Farm to the major European festivals,
Australia’s Big Day Out and a headline run in Japan. The following year they returned to Europe with
Metallica, and to this day the band has steadily delivered audiences in territories across the globe.
