AILD, Gwar, In Flames, Trivium Confirmed For SOTU

According to MTV.com, As I Lay Dying, Gwar, In Flames, Trivium, Cannibal Corpse, Terror, the Black Dahlia Murder, Behemoth, the Chariot and Through the Eyes of the Dead are all confirmed to take part in the second Sounds of the Underground Tour.

The Sounds of the Underground organizers are taking a different approach to this summer's festival by keeping the number of bands on the bill down and extending the length of set times. Last year most bands got no more than 30 minutes to play.

While dates for the trek — including the official launch date — are still being worked out, SOTU will return to Denver, St. Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Los Angeles, as well as cities in Texas, New England and western Canada. Tickets will go on sale in late March.

More bands will be announced in the coming weeks.

ex-The Black Dahlia Murder Drummer Comments

Drummer Zach Gibson, formerly of THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, who was removed from the band on the last date of their recent US tour, has posted the following message on his MySpace page:

"Yes, the rumors are true, I AM NO LONGER THE DRUMMER FOR THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER........I was asked to leave the band after our last show on the BTBAM/CEPHALIC CARNAGE/INTO THE MOAT tour 10/28/05 in Detroit,Michigan,our home...I was quitting anyways and they knew it,they just wanted to save face and beat me to the punch.I'm gonna sound like a total asshole, but anyone that knows me knows that this is the truth and i'm very very far from being a dick head.....BDM is nothing without me,they were nothing until I joined.Had I not joined last year when I did, they never would've continued, and even if they did, half the shit they did with me in the band would've never happened,and Miasma wouldn't have turned out the way it did,they know all of this is true as well, because i've been told by them many a times.I want everyone to know that reads this that Brian from BDM is a total dickhead and doesn't care about anything accept making money,and on top of that, he is not half as good of a musician as you may think,he is one of the most un-talented musicians i've ever played with. He doesn't care about friendships,having fun(Basically really being in a band).....

For his part, Gibson has issued the following statement:

"Yes, the rumors are true, I am no longer the drummer for The Black Dahlia Murder.

Black Dahlia Murder Guitarist Arrested

The Black Dhalia Murder guitarist Brian Eschbach was arrested for indecent exposure while filming footage for FUSE TV’s Uranium on July 23rd at Ozzfest in Pittsburgh, PA. Brian was given Uranium host Juliya’s camcorder and was walking around the second stage area interviewing random bands and fans when someone pulled his towel off, which happened to be the only thing he was wearing. The police immediately seized Brian and escorted him away to a holding cell on site where he was detained for about 30 minutes before being let go with a citation. Luckily FUSE’s Uranium was onsite and caught everything on camera which will be aired not only on Uranium and Metal Asylum, but also on a FUSE special on Ozzfest. MTV News was also at Ozzfest and you can catch both The Black Dhalia Murder and As I Lay Dying in their coverage of the festival ten to the hour every hour or watch it on MTV Overdrive right now by going to MTVNews.com, and at the bottom of the page click overdrive. Here’s what Brian had to say about his brush with the law in Pittsburgh, “I’d like to start off by saying that it feels good to be free. Of coarse its weird saying that when this incident just draws so much light on how much injustice there is in America and how much general lack of freedom we really have. But it feels good to be back on tour rocking with my band mates… and word up to all my boys in cell A and I hope to see you all again soon.”

*FUSE Ozzfest special airs this Friday 8/5 @ 6:00pm PST/9:00pm EST
*Metal Asylum on Monday 8/8 @ 8:00pm PST/11:00pm EST
*Uranium Ozzfest special airs Friday 8/19 @ 6:00pm PST/9:00pm EST

Black Dahlia Murder, Bury Your Dead Detained @ Ozz

Black Dahlia Murder guitarist Brian Eschbach was detained by police during Ozzfest's Pittsburgh stop and ticketed for obscenity. As the bearded axeman explained, "I was helping out someone else with a camera and a microphone and I got my towel taken [from me], which was the only thing I had on at the time, and I was apprehended." But he wasn't the only person busted by the authorities that afternoon. Bury Your Dead guitarist Slim B. was also arrested for crashing one of the Ozzfest golf carts. "I was too fast, too furious," he explained. "I shouldn't have been driving at all, and I made a boo boo. I took a hard right which happened to be a hard left and ended up eating sh--." Slim B. sustained facial and arm scrapes in the accident.

The Black Dahlia Murder Make Billboard 200

The Black Dahlia Murder’s sophomore album "Miasma" has made it's way to 119 on the Billboard top 200 during it's first week of sales. Selling around 10,000 albums. The band also landed the #1 spot on the Billboard Heat Seekers chart, which celebrates new artists’ releases. In addition The Black Dahlia Murder made 5 on the
Billboard Independent chart and 14 on the Billboard Hard Music chart.

Vocalist Trevor Strand stated, “We feel that the new record is more intense than the last on every front. I would almost say less accessible than "Unhallowed". It’s awesome to see that our fans are growing right along with us, musically speaking, and are accepting the record with open arms”.

The band is currently making their rounds with Ozzfest and have been well received, “The fans have been coming out in droves, yet at the same time, we’ve been reaching a lot of new people, which is very important to us. We get to speak for a genre that is highly overlooked with this opportunity, and possibly save people from Nu Metal damnation.”

Black Dahlia Murder is also touring with It Dies Today and the Haunted on their off-dates and will be headlining a fall tour. Here are all of the current tour dates including Ozzfest and off-dates: More...
