Tickets for the Hot Topic Presents Sounds of the Underground Tour are now available through Artist Arena at a discounted price for a limited time. A portion of the proceeds generated from the pre-sale will be donated to Cure Autism Now.

In addition to the previously announced stellar lineup, which includes headliners GWAR, Chimaira, Every Time I Die, and Job For A Cowboy, the third annual Sounds of the Underground summer touring fest will feature additional bands in select cities:

  • Thrash metal veterans Testament will play before GWAR at the Starland Ballroom on July 14 in New Jersey.

  • Mushroomhead will close the show in their hometown of Cleveland, Ohio on July 21 and will also perform as special guests in Columbus on July 22, Chicago on July 23, and Minneapolis on July 24.

  • The legendary Suicidal Tendencies will close shows in San Jose, California on August 3, Irvine, California on August 4, and Mesa, Arizona on August 5.

  • Modern thrash titans Lamb of God will headline a recently added date on August 11 in Louisville, Kentucky and will be joined by special guests Hatebreed and Behemoth.

The regular lineup for Hot Topic Presents Sounds of the Underground includes headliner Gwar, with co-headliners Chimaira, Every Time I Die and a band to be announced soon rotating set times throughout the tour. The lineup will be rounded out by Job For a Cowboy, Necro, Darkest Hour, Amon Amarth, The Acacia Strain, The Devil Wears Prada, Heavy Heavy Low Low, The Number Twelve Looks Like You Goatwhore, This Is Hell, and 2 Cents.

Oderus Urungus, lead throat-thing of GWAR, rulers of Earth, when told of the addition of the various guests, responded, "I give my personal seal of filthy approval to this excellent selection of bands. Suicidal in particular played one of the first GWAR shows ever. Tonight I shall burn a baby upon the Altar of Eternal Syphillis."

It's a shame I won't be able to make it Mushroomhead puts on a great show. I'd like to see Testament too but I'm not even near there. Okay, didn't take too long for SOTU to tell the special guests. Now Ozzfest it's you're turn...

YES!!!! I was hoping that the NJ show would get someone like this, TESTAMENT and GWAR, who could ask for anything more. Anyone who says this tour sucks needs to turn in thier Metal Membership card.
