The last time Sevendust was at The Rust Belt, we rocked a Tuesday night with them on a hot June night.  Now, they'll be here during the slowest week of the year.  Perfect time to come out and join us.  Sevendust are one of the most prominent nu-metal acts, rising above their contemporaries with an aggressive blend of bottom-heavy riffs and soulful, accessible melodies delivered by vocalist Lajon Witherspoon.


Francesca Ludikar

One of the most requested bands to bring to The Rust Belt, Nonpoint has been the biggest and best-kept secret of the rock/metal genre across the country.  But not here in the Quad Cities. Their songs and renowned performances have had music legends, from all corners of the genre and music industry, standing side stage to revel in the mayhem, to witness magic unfolding and audiences ignited. Hearing the chorus of the crowd as they recite the iconic melodies and lyrics of vocalist and frontman phenom, Elias Soriano. Watching him tentacle his iconic dreadlocks feet from the spinning and flying bodies in front of him and surrounding him onstage. Then with just a look or wave of his hand, he makes a sea of people transform. Behind Elias, there’s roaring thunder created by co-founder and showman Robb Rivera as he flies through the air just before crashing down with unmatched force into their music.

ill Nino

ILL NIÑO is best known for their musically bending niche “Latin Metal”, the group has released 7 studio albums, 2 EPs, and 1 greatest hits album.

The debut album "Revolution, Revolución" is a Roadrunner Records classic. The album's single, "What Comes Around," enjoyed many weeks in the top 20 Active Rock radio charts. The song topped at #1 on the Mediabase Active Rock radio charts.

The second album "Confession” sold 40,000 copies in the first week. The lead single "How Can I Live" was featured in the film “Freddy vs. Jason” and featured as the soundtrack single.

Another Day Dawns

Another Day Dawns is a high-energy rock band established in 2010 by drummer Nick McGeehan and guitarist Tyler Ritter of Lehighton, Pennsylvania. Initially performing classic rock covers, the addition of front-man Dakota Sean ignited their evolution into a full-on original act.


The contest ends December 19 (so you can give them as a last-minute present...to yourself)
