Sounds of the Underground has announced the lineup for their annual tour. Following two straight appearances in the middle of the day, the event will be closed most nights by splatter metal champions, GWAR; ensuring that fans will remain blood and gore-free until the closing hours of the show. Three other bands will rotate in the headlining position prior to GWAR: a block-buster artist yet to be announced, face-shredding metal pugilists Chimaira, and experimental noisemakers Every Time I Die.
The day will be completed with a bill including Necro, Darkest Hour, Amon Amarth, The Acacia Strain, The Devil Wears Prada, HeavyHeavyLowLow, The Number Twelve Looks Like You, Goatwhore, This Is Hell, and 2 Cents. Expect additional special guest headliners to join the bill on select dates.
The touring festival launches in July and runs into August.
Mark Hunter, Chimaira vocalist boasts, "We are happy to announce that we will be taking part in this years Sounds Of The Underground. We played the first year and we had a fucking blast. This year we are going to up the production level and bring something special to our fans. Then we will get wasted every night with ETID and Gwar. See you this summer!"
After being involved with the tour for it's first two years, Hot Topic is stepping up to present the tour this summer. Continuing another tradition, Hot Topic will carry the 2007 version of the 2CD + 1 DVD Sounds Of The Underground Exclusive Compilation - look for it in stores and online in late June.
The organizers for this year's Sounds of the Underground Tour; Paul Conroy and Carl Severson of Ferret Music, Tim Borror of The Agency Group, Larry Mazer of Entertainment Services, with Tour Producer Live Nation along with partners Metal Blade Records, Prosthetic Records, Trustkill Records and The Syndicate, and tour sponsors Music Choice, Ibanez, Tama, Purevolume, AOL Radio, Revolver Magazine, and Lambgoat are excited to embark on this third year of mayhem.
