Scott Stapp Announces New Single and 'The Survivor Tour' Dates
Just seven months since The Space Between The Shadows debuted atop the charts, Scott Stapp announces next single, "Survivor," and the first dates on The Survivor Tour, which kicks off June 5 in Pacific Junction, IA. Presale tickets for Live Nation venues begins Tuesday, March 10, 2020 at 10am local. General ticket onsale begins March 13 at 10:00am local time on ScottStapp.com.
Last July, Scott's 1st album in six years, The Space Between The Shadows introduced "Purpose For Pain," Scott's highest-charting single since 2005. His North and South American tour dates came with all the power, pyro, and anthems expected of one of the biggest voices in recent rock music and he recently discussed his five-year journey of overcoming and rebuilding during a candid Q&A at the Pollstar Live! conference. Having fought for his return, "Survivor," is a powerful anthem to strengthen the resolve of anyone wrestling with adversity as Scott roars at the demons of the past, "how ya like me now?!"
Today, Scott also debuted an inspiring PSA video from his trip to Ecuador with ChildFund International, one of his philanthropic partners since 2015. Set to his song "Wake Up Call," the video illustrates every individual's potential and the joy of giving, for both the giver and the recipients. As he did last summer, Stapp will host ChildFund reps at each venue so that fans who are able can sponsor a child for $36 a month. To sponsor a child or learn more about ChildFund, please visit www.childfund.org/scott-stapp.
"ChildFund gives these kids a fighting chance of overcoming the reality they were born into. Children in need don't have to become victims of neglect," said Scott.
Stapp has come full circle with The Space Between The Shadows. Themes of facing the past, overcoming, and powering through adversity dominate - "Purpose For Pain," finds meaning in life's struggles; "Name," promises to end destructive cycles; "Gone Too Soon," honors musical peers and victims of unexpected tragedy; and "Survivor" promises above all, to never stop fighting.

In July 2019, his 1st album in six years, The Space Between The Shadows, celebrated five years of sobriety, re-introduced an evolved artist at his best, and debuted in the Top 5 and Top 10 across Rock and Album charts in the US and UK for his anthems of gratitude, optimism, and unflinching self-examination.
