Chris Daughtry of the rock band Daughtry stopped by this week to discuss the band's new album, "Break the Spell", their exclusive free Facebook concert on Wednesday, December 14 in conjunction with Duracell, their upcoming tour and how he and his family are gearing up for the holidays!
Candace Rose: How are you and your family gearing up for the holidays?
Chris Daughtry: "Well, my wife is doing most of the shopping, I'm traveling so much so I come in last minute and start wrapping stuff. That's how I contribute."
Candace Rose: There you go, that's the way to be!
Chris Daughtry: "Yeah."
Candace Rose: And you just got back from being on tour?
Chris Daughtry: "Yeah, we went overseas, literally around the world. We went to the Middle East, Europe, Asia playing for the troops for the Air Force. It was a pretty crazy experience."
Candace Rose: Can you tell us about your new album "Break The Spell?"
Chris Daughtry: "Yes, it's out; it's high energy. We're super proud of it. We can't wait to get out and start touring and get out there and play these new songs for everybody."
Candace Rose: And how about your exclusive Facebook concert?
Chris Daughtry: "Wednesday, December 14th, Facebook.com/Duracell. Check it out we're going to be doing a free concert for everyone to log on wherever you Facebook, whether that be your living room or your bedroom or your bathroom, we'll be right there with you! It's December 14th 3pm east coast time, so I guess that's noon your time."
Candace Rose: Yeah, so as long as you're a Facebook fan of Duracell you're good to go on the 14th?
Chris Daughtry: "Yeah, good to go. Sign in, all the details are right there. It's got a lot of stuff going on for the holidays for parents gearing up for the Christmas season. Also, they're donating 30,000 batteries to families in need for the holiday season, so it's a win-win for everybody."
Candace Rose: Absolutely; that's great to hear. Can you tell us what's next on your list?
Chris Daughtry: "Well, we're going to go home for the holidays, spend time with the family and we'll start gearing up for a tour hopefully in March, and we're going to hopefully be in a town near you. And check out DaughtryOfficial.com for any upcoming dates. We're gonna hopefully get out there and play these new songs for everybody starting in the spring."
