The organisers of the touring Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar tour have confirmed which bands will be taking part in this year's edition of the trek. Headlining the run will be Orange County, California based Avenged Sevenfold, who will be joined by Three Days Grace, Seether, Bullet For My Valentine and Escape The Fate. There will also be a second stage which will feature Sevendust as it's headlining act, along with Black Tide, Art Of Dying and The Black Cloud Collective.

"When we started hearing from our fans they wanted to see us back on Uproar this year, we thought, last year was a blast so let's do it again. The fans are crazy and the bands kick ass,” says Avenged Sevenfold's frontman M. Shadows. “We're spending the first half of summer playing some big European festivals so we're going to be ready to get back home and play America's top rock festival."

"We're thrilled to have Avenged Sevenfold back as headliners,” adds tour producers John Reese and John Oakes. “Their epic stage show helped elevate Uproar 2010 far beyond the standard outdoor festival. The fans wanted more, and we listened."

A portion of the proceeds of each Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival ticket sold will benefit Child Find of America and the Road 2 Recovery Foundation. More information on Child Find of America and the Road 2 Recovery Foundation can be found here.

"We’re excited to work with the Road 2 Recovery Foundation, since so many of the Uproar crew are fans of Motocross or just love to ride," says Mike Kelso, Marketing Director for Rockstar Energy Drink.

Not the worst lineup I've seen. I don't really have a major itch to see any of these bands. Like I'd like to see most all these bands live but not as much as the lineup on Mayhem. That peaks my interest a lot more. If I did go I'd see Sevendust, Three Days Grace and Bullet.
