Aw man. I'll bet COB feels about as excited for this tour as my brother did when they told him he would be doing sound for a year with Beyonce. My sympathies fellas.

I can see the groups now:

Municipal waste and COB become best friends, trading secrets on how else they can be better than all the othe rband son the tour

Dir en gray and Disturbed will suck each other off telling each other how awesome each other are, and will refuse to hang out with any of the other bands except maybe Dragonforce and trivium, because everyone else will be too poor to hang oput with them.

Dragonforce and trivium wont even play live, they'll just show pictures of their a$$holes on a widescreen to the tune of their music and get the exact same response as if they were playing. Proof that you can feed people sh** and they'll gobble it up.

Pain and Volbeat will just sit in the corner coloring, because nobody f***in knows who they are, but children of bodom and MW will occasionally drop by and hand them a sandwich and a thumbs up, because they're not complete douchbags.

the new video shot in L.A>; is for Last Journey Home.
It's mostly animated though not necessarilly a videogame sendup (yawn).
It also features live footage from the show at the Wiltern theater and is directed by Eric Zimmerman who did Holy Wars, Head Like A Hole, Bring The Noise, Jesus Christ Pose and other totally amazing vids. Funkit
