These natives of landlocked Austin, Texas are confirmed to perform on SHIPROCKED 2014: the ultimate rock music cruise vacation aboard the Jewel-class Norwegian Pearl. The over 2,300 passenger capacity ship will depart from the Port Of Miami on January 26th, 2014 and sail to the Great Stirrup Cay - a private island in the Bahamas - for a five-day excursion. Fueled by Monster Energy for the third year, the SHIPROCKED 2014 line-up includes headliners Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, Three Days Grace, Device (featuring David Draiman), Sevendust, Candlebox, In This Moment, Lacuna Coil, The Halo Method, Nonpoint, Love & Death (with Brian “Head” Welch), Aranda, Art of Dying, Young Guns, Crash Kings, Butcher Babies, SCORPION CHILD, Wilson, American Fangs, Digital Summer, and Andy Wood & The Amalgam. The cruise will also feature a special onboard DJ set by Neil Sanderson of Three Days Grace and a comedy set from Big Jay Oakerson.
