Astoria, New York (PressExposure) June 01, 2011 -- The premier rock festival at sea, ShipRocked, marking its third annual voyage this November, has added another heavyweight band, Sick Puppies (MRI/ Virgin/EMI), to its already jam packed line-up featuring Buckcherry, Queensrÿche, Hinder, Hellyeah, Sevendust, Candlebox, Filter, Living Colour, In This Moment, Lynam, Broken Teeth and Rival Sons.
Sick Puppies are set to play to new fans and rabid existing fans alike onboard ShipRocked 2011, after having shared stages with the likes of Nickelback, Seether, Shindeown, Breaking Benjamin, Evanescence, Deftones, Velvet Revolver, and many more over the past four whirlwind years they've spent in the rock and roll fast lane. The band recently released their latest album, a new, deluxe version of their acclaimed "Tri-Polar," which has sold over 300,000 copies to date, and spawned four top 10 Rock tracks "Maybe", "Odd One", "You're Going Down", and their latest "Riptide" which is currently #2 on the Active Rock radio chart, steering the band's way to appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Lopez Tonight.
ShipRocked 2011 sets sail November 14-19, 2011 from Ft. Lauderdale, FL, heading for the tip of Mexico and its popular stretch of gorgeous Caribbean water known for scuba diving, shopping and bars aplenty. LA's multi-platinum Buckcherry, along with progressive metal pioneers (and SR 2009 alumni) Queensrÿche, Oklahoma retro rockers Hinder, metal titans Hellyeah (featuring members of Mudvayne and the legendary Pantera), SR 2010 crowd-favorite Sevendust, rock radio mainstays Candlebox and Filter, funk-rock pioneers Living Colour, and LA's In This Moment, led by the vocal pyrotechnics of Maria Brink, are all sure to wreak havoc on the high seas. Main support comes from SR perennials and late-night favorites Lynam as well as the inescapable Texas thunder of Broken Teeth and new sensation Rival Sons and their brand of 70's style guitar groove. With the addition of Sick Puppies, cruise goers have the chance to experience a concert event with an intensity only matched by 20-foot sea swells, helping solidify a four-pronged trident of rock and roll mayhem.
Event founder, ASK4 Entertainment's Alan Koenig promises, "ShipRocked 2011 will truly be the ultimate rock and roll cruise vacation. We've got an amazing lineup of artists, all meeting and greeting fans, performing multiple shows over five days and nights. We'll be sailing to two exotic ports-of-call onboard a beautiful new luxury liner filled with spacious balcony cabins. Mix in a lot of fun with the warm Caribbean sun, and it's simply the best value out there."
The setting is the MSC Poesia, one of the cruise industry's most acclaimed new super cruise ships, which features the luxurious Aqua Spa, two pools, four Jacuzzis, a state-of-the-art cardio gym, salon, sushi bar, a la carte Italian dining, wine tasting bar, and the Teatro Carlo Felice, a beautiful and intimate Las Vegas-style theater.
It all begins in Fort Lauderdale, FL, visiting the premier Mexican ports of Costa Maya and Cozumel.
