    Shinedown singer Brent Smith and Chevelle drummer Sam Loeffler sit down with ARTISTdirect.com in this exclusive interview to talk about the five-band package tour, Carnival of Madness, which has a unifying theme of all the bands having the same manager and more importantly, the kind of rock chops that'll get heads nodding and bodies moving!

    It's a good rock 'n' roll summer tour; it's all meat and potatoes, protein fortified rock, and that is just what the average, red-blooded American male and rock-loving females need in their lives. Smith and Loeffler sit down and talk about the economic value of their tour, and Smith sings the praises of some of Chevelle's songs, namely their biggest hit, "The Red."

    Smith also talks about how music healed him and how it can be a salve for the person shelling out hard-earned cash on the ticket.

    Also on the tour: Puddle of Mudd, Sevendust and 10 Years.

    Watch the clip here or below: and enjoy. It's about four minutes of fun.

    Are you going to check out the Carnival of Madness tour?
