Coal Chamber Finds New Management

After parting ways with longtime manager and surrogate mother Sharon Osbourne earlier this month, the Goth-tinged rockers of Coal Chamber have found new management.

The band has inked a deal with Left Bank Management, home to fellow rockers Mötley Crüe as well as Blondie, Meat Loaf, The Cranberries, and Yes, among others.

As we previously reported, the band staged an amicable split with Osbourne, who had shepherded the band through the last four years of its career (see "Coal Chamber, Osbourne Management Part Ways").

Following the break, bassist Rayna Foss Rose noted that the group was looking for "someone that's going to be really, really into what we're doing and is really hands-on, I think, which all managers should be" (see "Coal Chamber Talks About Management Change").

With its management issues settled, the group can now set its sights on

this summer, when it will roll out on the first-ever Tattoo The Earth tour with Slipknot, Sevendust, and a number of other acts (see "Slipknot, Sevendust, Coal Chamber To Tattoo The Earth"). An itinerary has yet to be lined up, but the tour is expected to kick off in August.
