Viva La Bands Vol 2 Complete Tracklisting Revealed

Bam Margera has made it his mission to expose an entire generation of his peers to some original high-energy music through his VIVA LA BANDS album and tour series. Brought to you by Ferret Music and Filthy Note Records, VIVA LA BANDS, VOL. 2 will hit stores on September 4, 2007.

The CD features exclusive tracks, written and recorded for the CD/DVD combo from some of Bam’s favorite acts like CLUTCH, IN FLAMES, CKY, CHILDREN OF BODOM, VIKING SKULL and VAINS OF JENNA. A US-exclusive track from SHINY TOY GUNS and music from other faves like GWAR, THE SOUNDS, DIMMU BORGIR and KILL HANNAH also appears on the killer compilation. The full track listing for the 20-song album is displayed below.

Bam is as excited for the release as fans around the world will be… "I’m so fucking psyched that some of my favorite bands recorded exclusive songs this time around! Clutch and In Flames fucking rock and my brother Jess did a sick CKY remix. Obviously The Sounds are one of my favorite bands - my wife even insisted that they play our wedding. I also sent the first band I signed, Vains of Jenna, into the studio to record a new track for the record.”

The DVD component to this release contains almost an hour of never-before-seen Bam footage – a must-have for the ‘Jackass generation!’ Revealing what makes the DVD special, Bam adds “I’m finding some of my best, unused footage for the DVD. Everyone keeps asking me for a CKY5 but I think this DVD might be the closest thing to that!"

Viva La Bands’ companion tour will be taking out some of Bam’s favorite acts and is estimated to visit over 20 cities in the USA beginning in October 2007. Fans can also expect to see Bam and his friends at select shows.

More Bands Announced on "Viva La Bands, Vol 2"

BAM MARGERA PRESENTS…VIVA LA BANDS, VOL 2 is the latest in the skating/antic superstar’s unique musical vision shared with his fans. In addition to previously announced unreleased tracks from CLUTCH, CKY, and VAINS OF JENNA, exclusive additions to the track listing from IN FLAMES, CHILDREN OF BODOM, PLACEBO and THE BLOODHOUND GANG have just come in!

Jimmy Pop explains how THE BLOODHOUND GANG’s ‘romantic’ contribution to the compilation, "Screwing You On The Beach At Night" fits in (or doesn’t, in this case)… "I love so many of the bands on Viva La Bands 2. It's unfortunate that our contribution sticks out like a sore thumb. A big, gay, sore thumb." Placebo is also glad, albeit less comically, to be on the compilation, "Placebo is pleased that 'Soulmates' was hand-selected by Bam Margera to be a part of this project. He has exceedingly good taste," the band adds.

The CD/DVD combo will hit stores on September 4, 2007 and feature these unreleased tracks and much more. The compilation also brings together many of Bam’s other favorite artists such as GWAR, DIMMU BORGIR and THE SOUNDS, as well as newly acquired tracks from KILL HANNAH, VIKING SKULL, AND GNARKILL. The DVD component to this rocking release contains 30 minutes of never-before-seen Bam footage – a must-have for the ‘Jackass generation.’

CKY Drummer Reveals Side Projects

MTV.com reports that CKY drummer Jess Margera has revealed he's been keeping busy working on various side projects and lending his talents to other bands' work. He recorded all the drum tracks on Viking Skull's upcoming Chapter II LP and has formed a band called Partners in Crime with CKY guitarist Chad Ginsburg and Guy Heller of Moistboyz.

But the band he's most excited about — after CKY, that is — hasn't even been assigned a name yet. It features Fireball Ministry's Jim Rota and Clutch main man Neil Fallon.

"I was on a flight back from Germany, and I was looking at my iPod, and I looked at my top 10 list or whatever, and it was just like Clutch, Puny Human, Fireball Ministry, Led Zeppelin," he said. "So I called everybody but Led Zeppelin, for obvious reasons, because I was recording in my home studio. I just invited them all up to my house, and we worked on two or three songs. That turned into five songs, then eight, 10, and now we have 12 songs."

Margera said the Fallon-fronted act sounds like equal parts CKY, Clutch and Fireball Ministry, and had its first practice last month, following his pro-skateboarder brother Bam Margera's wedding to Melissa Rothstein. While the group does intend to release an album, he's not sure when that will be, given that the bands' hectic schedules will make tracking the LP difficult.

"It's like my supergroup, man," he enthused. "It's just cool as hell, and I'm psyched about it."
