Ash Avildsen (Summer Slaughter Founder) states: "Without a doubt, this is the biggest year in the history of the tour. We are honored to have such an incredible, diverse group of musicians all on the same bill. It's brutal, classic, progressive, fresh and still the most extreme tour of the year. Drink lots of water before you show up and get ready to rage!"

Ill def be at this show, not just cause I think it'll be fun and the line up is semi decent. Just the fact that it's a bunch of bands for $20 and a hell of a good time.

Alright, can someone give me a link to a Periphery song that actually sounds like a metal song? Everything I've heard of theirs sounds like indie-hipster-rock. Sorry to be an elitist prick, but seriously, how is this band metal?
