Back in December, we heard that Godsmack and Staind were gearing up to hit the road this spring, and now it’s been confirmed that Halestorm will join them on the trek, as well in their Mass Chaos Tour to headline 99X FEST! Dates below the jump.

Godsmack are prepping a live album for release in 2012, while Staind will be out in support of their 2011 self-titled disc. Halestorm, meanwhile, are set to release a new studio album this spring.

On Godsmack’s Facebook page Jan. 17, the band asked fans to help them name the tour and it's been decided.  The Mass Chaos Tour!
