CHIMAIRA frontman Mark Hunter has made the following comment about the band's participation as one of the main stage support acts for this summer's Sounds of the Underground tour.

"Ozzfest was fun, and it may have been cool to do this year, but when we got wind of this new tour and found out that our fans wouldn't be spending $150 just to get a ticket, a water and parking slot, we immediately jumped at the opportunity. We are proud to be on the road with a bunch of kick ass bands who don't have egos, and we look forward to a great summer of metal and mayhem!"
