2010 will see the inaugural edition of the "Cool Tour," which will feature As I Lay Dying, Underoath, Between the Buried and Me, Blessthefall, The Acacia Strain, Architects, Cancer Bats, and War of Ages. The Cool Tour will begin on July 12 in Orlando, FL and comes to a halt in San Francisco, CA on August 1st.

“After taking last summer off to focus on writing new material, we'll be back out this year in support of our latest album, The Powerless Rise,” states As I Lay Dying guitarist Phil Sgrosso. “We've got a killer line up of bands that share the same passion for heavy music and putting on a great show every night for the fans. You don't want to miss a tour as good as this.”

“We're looking forward to get out on the Cool Tour this summer,” states Underoath guitarist Tim McTague. “2010 has been a transitional year for Underoath, and we are looking forward to putting our new direction in motion.” McTague also adds, “Cool Tour is the perfect place to come out and show everyone what Underoath of the future will sound like.”

EWW!!! The only band I'd like to see would be As I Lay Dying. And I don't think it'd be worth it after sitting through the torture of the rest of them.

NEW TITLE FOR THIS TOUR:

THE COOL GAY TOUR!!!

ADVERTISMENT FOR TOUR:

Its ok to be strange, unliked, picked on, pushed around, made fun of, etc....If any of these have happened to you and you never stood up for yourself, then come out and let your PANSY a$$ GAYNESS loose!! There will tons of sausages to play with in the PANSY PIT!! So many other strange gaywads like you running around acting tough, yet feminine like the gay pansy bands that are on the bill!!! COME ON OUT OF THE CLOSET YOU ARE HIDING IN AND GET CRAZY!!!

I'll probably show up late for As I Lay Dying and Between the Buried and Me. I wouldn't mind seeing Cancer Bats either but I don't know if I like them enough to sit through three crappy bands in a row after that.

I've never heard of cancer bats, but I'll have to check them out.....

war of ages is sick, acacia strain is ok, and underoath is ok....all in all a pretty good tour. Totally worth it just for AILD and BTBAM

BTBAM isnt anything like these other bands. So when you bash this tour for being "gay" do you guys think you could leave them out?

LMAO!!! I've been speeding right past this thread because we have a local church here that advertises on TV as "The Cool Church" and I just unconsciously bypassed it. Doesn't look as though I missed much. *nice job subconscious*

It's actually a pretty good line-up for me. I like As I Lay Dying, Underoath, Between the Burried and Me, and Blessthefall.

Well at least all the bands I dislike are touring together now, means they're not infecting good line ups.

Greed, whatever it takes to get you nonbelievers to go to church...using the words "cool" hipp" and "epic" still lure the masses to do,.....whatever.....especially kids, who i think theyre trying to appeal to these days since you grown ups are so stubborn and set in your ways, espcially with kill joy parenting techniques of there being no santa claus, no easter bunny, and no god.....you better hope your kids dont see that commercial, you may end up getting stuck dropping them off at sunday school...."at the cool church".....keep me posted....*daily morning schtick*

Cynic: You are not a fan of Between the Buried and Me? Watching Cynic, Devin Townsend and BTBAM on the same bill was an incredible experience.

Aside from BTBAM I agree with you. This bill looks awful.

Now Playing: ""Buried Dreams" by Carcass

Between the Buried and Me is the only band worth seeing. One of the only bands today who actually focus on making decent music. I'm not much of a fan of them, but they are actual musicians compare to the others. I don't wanna go there with a bunch of metalcore kids. Oh well, all the rest suck so much.

I've seen AILD live four times, taste of chaos 06, Sounds 06, 08 with unearth, and 09 co-headlining with Lamb of God, and they riped every time. But aside from them and Underoath, the rest of this lineup looks like crap.

With this many bands on the bill, how long of a set will each of them get? I'd like to see between the buried and me, but couldn't care less about the rest of them. Would it be worth going just for them, or should I just wait till they come around again without the rest of this crap?

Between the Buried and Me - obviously great.
Bless the Fall - is alright. They're new singer is sh**ty though
The Acacia Strain - sick as tits!!
War of Ages - Just as great as the rest
Finally,
Cancer Bats - Never listened to them but they sound dumb ha but I can't really say.
