Q-Ruption, Rockstar Energy Drink's Uproar Festival, announced it's line-up several months ago with Alice In Chains and Jane's Addiction as your headliners. Since then, more bands have been added and we can officially say there will be a Third Stage this year!

The COLDCOCK Herbal Whiskey Showcase Stage powered by Ernie Ball will feature performances from breaking talent including The Dead Daisies, Beware Of Darkness, Charming Liars and more bands to be announced soon.

The Dead Daisies have a FREE EP, entitled "Man Overboard", that you can download now HERE. Their first single "Lock'NLoad" was co-written by lead singer Jon Stevens and Slash.

Beware of Darkness, who's first single "Howl" can be heard exclusively on Q103, are a three piece band that features of blend of loud, bold, blues-rock from Los Angeles. You can find "Howl" on their debut album "Orthodox" - which is out now.

Charming Liars are set to unleash their brand of music on the world this summer. They recently finished recording their debut with Bob Rock (Metallica) and John Fields (Jimmy Eat World). The album will be out later this summer.
