Hellyeah and Nothing More will be along for the ride as well.

Black Stone Cherry is rolling out a major U.S. tour schedule celebrating today's release of their new album, Magic Mountain. The band is already on the road with Seether, and next they will headline the hardDrive Live tour in July and August, with dates and details to be announced shortly. The band is also set to play a number of festivals this summer, including Rock On The Range on May 16, Rocklahoma on May 23, and San Antonio's River City Rockfest on May 24.

The late DJ E-Z Rock will be memorialized during the Hip Hop Hall of Fame awards show on Monday, May 19 in New York City. The ceremony will include an all-star performance in honor of E-Z Rock, who passed away on April 27.

Talib Kweli, Brand Nubian, Slick Rick, Busy Bee, Nine and Rakim will perform at the induction, and the show will be hosted by legendary female rapper Roxanne Shanté and DJ Mell Star.

The Dirty Heads are set to hit the road in support of their upcoming album, Sound Of Change, starting on July 16 in Minneapolis with openers Pepper and Aer. Sound Of Change is due on July 8 via Five Seven Music.
