Whitefish, MT-based rock quartet Uncommon Evolution have been confirmed as the opening act for of Shinedown at KettleHouse Amphitheater on August 20, 2019.
Uncommon Evolution have previously performed at the Top Hat and opened for Clutch at the Wilma earlier this year. Now, they’ve graduated to the big stage on the Blackfoot River opening for the multiplatinum group Shinedown — quite the accomplishment for the local rockers.
The band has played all across the U.S. including a festival appearance at SWSW. Their most recent studio album Junkyard Jesus came out in 2017 on Argonauta Records. It was produced by acclaimed music producer and engineer Gene Freeman, known professionally as Machine, who has worked with bands like Lamb of God, Clutch, As It Is, Crobot and others.
Uncommon Evolution guitarist and vocalist, Briar Gillund, filled us in on the band’s excitement regarding the support confirmation:
“We’re Not Worthy scene/ Wayne’s World. We never in a million years believed we would ever get to play this stage, so it was never on our radar. But as an artist, you dream of getting a call like that. Still, you could have knocked me over with a feather. This is going to be a very special event! We cannot thank Shinedown, Logjam and KettleHouse enough for this adventure. So much fun to be had!!! We’ll see you out there!!”
