And they are K! Relentless Energry Drink Tour 2008 headliners Coheed & Cambria and the mighty Children Of Bodom!
For Coheed & Cambria it will be a chance to exorcise the demons from their appearance at Download 2006, a period when the band was close to falling apart.
"We were one man down," explains bassist Michael Todd. "Our drummer didn't make it over, so we were playing with our drum tech as a replacement and it was less than cosy onstage. It was kind of a bum-out as it was one of the biggest shows that we have ever played. "Donington is one of those festivals that if you have a good spot on the bill, you've made it!" he adds. "It's going to be awesome."
"We've wanted to play Download for years," explains Children Of Bodom bassist Henkka SeppÑlÑ. "I can't wait to see Judas Priest. They're a band everybody has to see!"
The Kerrang!-sponsored Download festival will be headlined by: Kiss, The Offspring and Lostprophets
Other bands on the bill include: Alter Bridge, Children Of Bodom, Coheed & Cambria, Disturbed, HIM, In Flames, Incubus, Judas Priest, Motorhead and Rise Against,
The Download festival takes place the weekend of June 13 to June 15. Tickets are on sale now. Prices are as follows: a full weekend ticket: £130, standard camping: £20, camper van: £40, family zone camping: £20, lockers: £11, parking £10 in advance or £15 on the day.

LINKIN PARK frontman Chester Bennington has posted the following message on his official web site:
"We are starting to shoot our new video for 'Given Up' and I think it's going to turn out really good. The band has decided to go with a live video and I think it's perfect for the song. We always do really big expensive videos and it's nice to take a break from that."
According to The Pulse of Radio, LINKIN PARK will offer fans attending its upcoming tour the chance to purchase a "Digital Souvenir Package" with their tickets, in which they will receive an audio download of the concert they attend, exclusive photos and a digital tour program. Co-frontman Mike Shinoda said in a recent conference call with reporters what makes the offering unique. "The best part about it, to me, is that our live mixer, our official mixer who mixes our show every night, you know, finishes his night with us, then goes back to his hotel or bus or backstage and mixes the show for you," he said. "It's intended to be played, you know, in your headphones and in your car, and it's done by our official guy." More...
In an effort to appease Australian fans, Coheed and Cambria, after pulling out of the Soundwave Festival at the last moment to tour the US with Linkin Park, have announced a March/April tour of four venues across the continent. Tickets will be available from 9am on Feburary 1st, and the dates and locations of the shows are as follows:
Sunday, March 30th - The Tivoli, Brisbane (18+)
Tickets from Ticketek or 132 849, Rockinghorse and Kill The Music.
Monday, March 31st - UNSW Roundhouse (Licensed All Ages)

Chiodos, following the lead of Coheed And Cambria, Social Distortion, and Ace Enders, have become the fourth band to pull out of this years' Soundwave Festival in Australia. Though no news has yet been released on a replacement for Chiodos, replacing the other three on the line-up is Infectious Groves, City And Colour, and Alexisonfire. Coheed And Cambria decided not to come down under after being confirmed for the Soundwave fest when Linkin Park offered them a support spot on their US tour. Chiodos have now reported the exact same situation, and neither band has given any real reason for the late switch. A Soundwave fest organiser made this statement on the festival's message board:
"For the record, they were getting paid more from [Soundwave] than they are from Linkin Park. I suspect they are doing this stadium tour because their label and publisher demanded it and if the band did not do this they would have found their new album fall off the priority list. In any case, as is our policy at SW, we will always strive to replace any drop-out with a band of bigger or simillar stature. Sometimes, of course, it is impossible to get a carbon copy, but in terms of quality, we will always strive to match or exceed."
Coheed And Cambria issued the following statement:
"Linkin Park has personally invited us to support them in the US during this time and after a lot of thought, we have accepted. While this is good news for us and our fans in the US, we realize it is a blow to you down under and in mainland Europe, and we apologize for any inconvenience this will cause."
The band has assured us that they "will instead come to [Australian] shores at the end of March to play our own theater shows", but have not yet assured us of exact dates or locations. Chiodos' statement on their MySpace page said essentially the same thing:
"Dear the country/continent of Australia,
We regret to inform you that we have to cancel our dates on the “soundwave festival.” BUT WAIT, things will get sexier. We got an offer for a tour in the states that we couldn’t turn down with the position that were in. I know this sounds like were totally bailing on a bunch of totally wicked sweet dudes and dudettes, but were not. It was a really tough decision, all of us dudes were really really excited to hang out and head bang with you aussies, but it comes down to this opportunity that we can’t pass up. Hopefully you don’t hate on us and fly over to kill brad’s dog, steal derrick’s tobacco bong, give jason a shower, steal pat’s shoes, hot-wire craig’s car, and lastly pop my butt cherry. All of us know that violence is not the answer, BECAUSE we’ll be coming to australia soon, no worries. I have a scheduled fight with a kangaroo anyway, and that thing has been talking way too much shit, SO when that happens everyone is invited to watch me kick the shit out of this kangaroo, i’ve been training.
to sexy accents,

The Pulse of Radio reports: The first two dates of LINKIN PARK's next headlining North American tour, scheduled for February and March of 2008, have been announced. The trek will reportedly kick off on February 16 in Detroit, with the next stop on February 18 in Manchester, New Hampshire. COHEED AND CAMBRIA is said to be opening, although more support acts could be announced. A New York City show is also in the cards, although the date for that has yet to be determined. The jaunt will be LINKIN PARK's second major trip around North America in support of its "Minutes to Midnight" album, following this past summer's Projekt Revolution festival.
Another Projekt Revolution package is also in the works for later in 2008.
LINKIN PARK made history on November 18 by becoming the first international rock group to perform at a stadium in China, playing for a sold-out audience at the prestigious Shanghai Hongkou Stadium.
LINKIN PARK's Music For Relief organization teamed this month with Unite the United on an eBay auction, with proceeds going to recovery and reforesting efforts in the Southern California areas devastated by last month's wildfires.
One of the prizes in the auction is a trip to New York to see the band perform.
Coheed and Cambria have issued a statement that they will no longer be playing the Soundwave Festival in Australia and Europe as they have changed their tour plans to allow them to support Linkin Park in the United States. The statement follows:
"Dear Australian fans of Coheed and Cambria,
We in Coheed and Cambria regret to inform you that we will not be performing at this year's Soundwave Festival, and will instead come to your shores at the end of March to play our own theater shows.
Linkin Park has personally invited us to support them in the US during this time and after a lot of thought, we have accepted. While this is good news for us and our fans in the US, we realize it is a blow to you down under and in mainland Europe, and we apologize for any inconvenience this will cause.
We plan to announce the rescheduled dates for late March in the coming week. We deeply apologize to everyone at the Soundwave Festival, for all they've done, and how this affects them, but we know that the Festival will be phenomenal with or without us.
See you in March,

CLUTCH's video for the song "Electric Worry", filmed at the historic Maryland Theatre in Hagerstown, MD, is available for viewing at YouTube. The track comes off the group's latest album, "From Beale Street to Oblivion", which came out on March 27 through DRT Entertainment.
Coheed And Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez tells Kerrang! that they've recruited Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins to play drums on their new album, following the departure of Josh Eppard in November 2006.
The band are busy recording the snappily-titled 'No World For Tomorrow', their follow-up to 2005's 'Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness' with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters) at The Path studios, Hollywood.
"Taylor's actually brought a tremendous amount to the band," says Sanchez. "He's an interesting drummer in the fact that he's a songwriter, so when he's playing the drums he's not thinking of it as 'Oh, I'm a drummer, how flashy can I be?', he's really 'What is going to add to this song and make it the strongest it can possibly be?' So it's definitely a new take on that part of the band and I think it really works well."
'No World For Tomorrow' will be released in the autumn.
When an event has been around for 13 years, it's usually time to shake things up. And while Ozzfest chose to do that by going free, the Vans Warped tour opted to piece together one of its most diverse rosters to date. While not a metal tour, it does feature a hand full of heavier metalcore and screamo bands, most notably Norma Jean, As I Lay Dying, Funeral For A Friend, Haste The Day, Parkway Drive, and Maylene and the Sons of Disaster.
The tour, which will kick off June 28 at Chula Vista, California's Coors Amphitheater, is currently slated to play 45 shows through an August 25 date in Los Angeles with a lineup that includes Coheed and Cambria, Bad Religion, New Found Glory, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Cute Is What We Aim For, Bayside and Canadian rapper K-os.
Among the other groups that will be on the road with Warped all summer are Amber Pacific, Circa Survive, Tiger Army, Escape the Fate, Hot Rod Circuit, Big D and the Kids Table, Paramore, Gallows, the Matches, the Fabulous Rudies, Meg and Dia, All Time Low, Bleed the Dream, the Unseen, Spill Canvas, Evaline, Bless the Fall, Boys Like Girls, My American Heart, Vincent Black Shadow, Throw the Fight and Pepper.
Tour founder Kevin Lyman said he had plenty of options to choose from when putting together the roster. "We received over 4,000 submissions, so in booking the tour this year I felt that a diverse lineup was in order," he said in a press release announcing the dates. "The tour has always been a place to explore and discover new music. This year's lineup has old school, emo, punk, screamo, hip-hop, more ska than you have seen in a long time and everything in between. If you're open-minded, this will be a great show."
Members of the online Warped community will get their annual shot at Internet presale tickets starting April 1, where they'll be offered a ticket and a copy of the Warped Tour double-disc compilation for $19.99.
Among the other acts scheduled to play select dates are: A Static Lullaby, the Actual, Agent Orange, Alesana, Alkaline Trio, the Almost, Anberlin, As Cities Burn, As I Lay Dying, the Automatic, Biffy Clyro, the Briefs, the Briggs, Buck O Nine, Cinematic Sunrise, the Confession, the Dear and Departed, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Envy on the Coast, the Fall of Troy, Family Force 5, Fishbone, Flogging Molly, the Fold, Funeral for a Friend, the Graduate, Haste the Day, Hawthorne Heights, Human Abstract, I Am Ghost, Madina Lake, Mayday Parade, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, New Year's Day, Norma Jean, Parkway Drive, Pennywise, Pistolita, Play Radio Play, POS, Poison the Well, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Set Your Goals, So They Say, the Starting Line, Straylight Run, Supernova, the Toasters, Underoath, the Used, Valencia, The Vandals and Yellowcard.

Avenged Sevenfold and Coheed and Cambria are hitting the road together for a 31-date US co-headlining tour.
A7x guitarist Synyster Gates comments on the odd pairing of the two bands:
"We're the same kind of band," he reasoned. "You either love us or hate us, so we definitely have that in common. And we believe there will be a crossover there between both our fans. It's not the same genre of music, but the same kids listen to us and them. You know, anything can completely flop and some things can work out perfectly. We're big fans of their music, and I think, from what we hear, they're into us. So, it just felt right. We'll have to see what happens."
The trek was originally conceived as a triple threat: Avenged, Coheed and H.I.M. all sharing the rotating co-headlining bill. But that plan "just didn't work out," Gates said without further elaboration. There's no word yet on who'll be recruited to warm up the crowds on this forthcoming Avenged/ Coheed trek. Gates said the bands are considering going with a comedian or a circus act of some kind as the opener for all of the tour's dates, "because we don't want another band that sounds like us [on the bill]," which, the guitarist added, is "impossible these days."
