After a record-breaking 2014 with over 60,000 fans in attendance, Rocklahoma - presented by Bud Light - returns to “Catch the Fever” Festival Grounds in Pryor, OK for its ninth year on May 22nd, 23rd, and 24th with a lineup featuring top current rock artists and classic bands.
The three-day camping festival features music on three stages each day. In addition, the campground stage hosts performances during the Thursday night campground party and in the afternoon and late night hours on Friday, Saturday. and Sunday. The current band lineup for Rocklahoma 2015 is as follows:
Linkin Park, Tesla, Godsmack, Slayer, Volbeat, Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, Halestorm, Queensrÿche, Live, Anthrax, Ministry, The Pretty Reckless, Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts, Of Mice & Men, In This Moment, Apocalyptica, The Winery Dogs (featuring Billy Sheehan, Mike Portnoy & Richie Kotzen), Motionless In White, In Flames, Aranda, Nonpoint, We Are Harlot, Young Guns, You Me At Six, Periphery, Jake E. Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel, Starset, Shaman’s Harvest, Upon A Burning Body, Sabaton, Like A Storm, Crobot, Islander, Sons of Texas, Wayland, Gypsy Pistoleros, Nasty Habit, Lynam, Bai Bang, Black Tora, ASKA, Kingdragon, BabyJane, Chaotic Resemblance, Firstryke, Dead Metal Society, Ratchet Dolls, Diamond Lane, Mystery, Ragdoll, Mycah, Delta Rose, Loveblast, Ruff Justice, Warlock Texas, Mach22, Dellacoma, Station, Tempt, Project Terror, London's Dungeon, Ivy Stone, Lamp Shade Betty, We The Ghost, Well Hung Heart, NICNOS, Even the Dogs, SONS, A Course Of Action, DREK, and Lovebettie, and will be hosted by Eddie Trunk.
“We literally spend months and months piecing together the exact right mix of artists for Rocklahoma each year,” commented Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the festival for AEG Live. “Linkin Park and Slayer happen to be two of the most requested artists by the fans of Rocklahoma to play, so to get them both at the same time is a major coup. But surrounding them with the exact right element of bands that span the spectrum of classic to current and metal to lighter rock, that’s the key. This year’s lineup has that perfect balance with a little something for everyone.”
Upon A Burning Body is set to head out on the co-headline "Slow Your Troll and Know Your Role" tour with label mates Veil of Maya this week, beginning on Thursday, January 8th in Atlanta, GA.

In a recent press statement, UABB’s Danny Leal mentions, “It was amazing doing a video with Ice-T. He is such an inspiration. To be able to have him in a UABB video is a true honor. We hope everyone enjoys and parties to our remake of 'Turn Down For What.'"

This week on the Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) returns after a jaunt in Europe, where he helped cover the celebrated Tuska Open Air Metal Festival in Helsinki, Finland.
A series of full-length articles are on the way, but for now, Mike shares a handful of impressions, recollections, and opinions. This year's Tuska featured numerous heavy hitters, including Dimmu Borgir, Anthrax, Emperor, Children Of Bodom, Carcass, Satyricon, and Insomnium. Check out Mike's initial breakdown of the experience, and learn which performances impressed (or surprised) him most.
Then it's on to a new review by co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead), this time of "From Parts Unknown" by eclectic Buffalo, New York noisemakers Every Time I Die. He's not yet sure how this varied release stacks up against his personal favorite, 2012's "Ex Lives," but is quick to assure you it brings plenty of thrills.
Finally, Kevin and Mike react to the recently announced Knotfest lineup - a thorough blend of mainstream and underground, old school and new - and the ill-advised kidnapping hoax by Texas deathcore band Upon A Burning Body, a publicity stunt that backfired spectacularly.
After an obvious hoax that for some reason got the fans really upset anyway when the band claimed front man Danny Leal had gone missing, Upon A Burning Body today officially announces a new album.
"The World Is My Enemy Now" is due for release on August 12th via Sumerian Records. The first single, titled "Scars," is now available online and can be heard below, courtesy of Revolvermag.com.
Update: Ash Avildsen from Sumerian Records has now posted this message online via Facebook:
"I woke up to a ton of missed calls and just saw all this stuff about Danny Leal of UABB posing as that he's been abducted or kidnapped. My phone hasn't stopped ringing since. As a child, we all learn the story 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' and it sticks within our consciousness for a reason. I do not condone this type of publicity stunt. This was done behind my back and I am not OK with it. In my eyes, there's never a time to use the possibility of real-life abduction, injury or murder of someone you care about to promote anything, especially an album. If you need to resort to that, then you have lost the plot. We as a society should have evolved past that way of thinking by now and especially within the rock/metal community, given all the tragedy that has happened in our world over the past few years. There are some people who owe us an apology."
Upon A Burning Body's Facebook page was updated with the following brief message earlier today:
"Breaking News: Danny Leal (singer of Upon A Burning Body) has been reported missing. He was last seen in his home town of San Antonio TX on Monday, June 30th."
It seems likely this is all a hoax to announce some upcoming activity, based on the only two posts from Danny Leal's personal Facebook page over the last several days (available below), and we'll check back in with more info as it becomes available. The band is due to kick off the Mayhem festival tour on July 5th.
The Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival has now revealed the lineup for the 2014 tour, which kicks of July 5th and will feature four stages.
The lineup will feature: Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Asking Alexandria, Trivium, Cannibal Corpse, Suicide Silence, Body Count Featuring ICE T, Miss May I, Emmure, Mushroomhead, Texas Hippie Coalition, Veil Of Maya, Upon A Burning Body, Darkest Hour, Ill Nino, Wretched, Islander, King 810 and Erimha.

Killswitch Engage will be headlining the upcoming California Metalfest. It's a special gig for the Grammy-nominated, Massachusetts metal band celebrating its 10th anniversary of 2002's "Alive or Just Breathing."

Having all these bands in the same place on one day is really exciting both as a fan and as a festival producer."
