Former NEVERMORE/TESTAMENT Guitarist To Take Part In California's 'Shredstock'

Guitarist Steve Smyth (NEVERMORE, TESTAMENT), Doug Doppler (Guitar Hero), and Adrian Galysh will take Shredstock on the road across California. To add some local flavor to the tour, Steve, Doug and Adrian have launched the "YouShred at Shredstock Viral Video Contest." Three winners for each city on the California tour will have a chance to play a solo or a song to open the night. He or she with the most plays wins, so get your friends and family to catapult you to a moment in lights!

Shredstock's roots lie in guitar legend Uli Jon Roth's Sky Academy concert series, where Steve, Doug, and Adrian were invited to join the founding father of both the SCORPIONS and neo-classical rock on stage. From there they joined forces and created Shredstock.
