A cadre of hard rock acts led by Opeth, Unearth, Poison The Well and Clutch are uniting for the inaugural Sounds of the Underground summer festival tour. The bill will hit the road in North America in late June and run through late July.

Madball has been drafted for the eastern half of the tour, with Terror picking up on Western dates. Regional additions include the Red Chord (East Coast), Fear Before The March Of Flames (Midwest, Southeast) and Himsa (West).
"This tour will show the masses that real music is alive and well," Unearth's Trevor Phipps says. "The Sounds of the Underground will prove that you don't need 'pop-culture' to embrace your sound and way of life."
The tour is being produced by Face the Music Touring agent Tim Borror, Ferret label executive/artist manager Paul Conroy, Ferret label owner Carl Severson and artist manager Larry Mazer. The group has pledged to keep ticket prices below $30.
Dates for the trek have not yet been announced. The Sounds of the Underground Tour website will launch soon with full details.
The "Sounds of the Underground Tour" will rival Ozzfest and tickets will range from $20- $25. Bands include:
Lamb of God(main stage headliner)
Gwar (second stage headliner)
All That Remains
Poison the Well
Strapping Young Lad
A Life Once Lost
Every Time I Die
Terror / Madball (half of the tour each)
Contrary to rumors, Poison The Well have not broken up. Rather, since returning from their recent European tour with Dillinger Escape Plan, the group has been working on getting new members, Jason Boyer (guitar) and Ben Brown (bass), acclimated. According to the band, "We are very excited to be working with such talented people. Everything has been working out great thus far and we couldn't be happier." Meanwhile, PTW have been writing material for their next album, which they intend to begin recording this Spring. The band will once again be recording in Umea, Sweden at Tonteknik Studios with producers Pelle Henricsson and Eskil Lovstrom. Regarding the new record, the group states that "It's too premature to give a direction in which we are going, all [we] can say is it's going to be different."
Poison The Well, My Chemical Romance and Hopesfall will all be featured on an upcoming Smashing Pumpkins tribute album. As yet untitled, this is to be released next year by Law Of Inertia.
Poison The Well have reportedly added guitarist Jason Boyer to their lineup as a replacement for Derek Miller, who left the group last month. Boyer has been playing with Miami bands All Hell Breaks Loose and Target Nevada. Consequently, All Hell Breaks Loose has in turn added 24 Hours To Live guitarist, Chad, to their lineup.
POISON THE WELL guitarist Derek Miller has left the band. You can read the official statement over at www.poisonthewell.com.
