The mars volta have been confirmed on as special guests on this summers System of a Down tour. Details coming soon...

SYSTEM OF A DOWN ANNOUNCE SUMMER TOUR
The Mars Volta will be Special Guests on All Dates

What will undoubtedly be a "must see" tour this summer, SYSTEM OF A DOWN is confirmed to headline its first major U.S. tour in three years, it is announced today. While specific dates are being confirmed and will be announced shortly, the band will kick off a two-month trek in early August that will see them playing arenas in major and secondary markets throughout North America. It is also announced that The Mars Volta will join System of a Down as Special Guests on all of the tour dates; a third act, yet to be announced, will open the shows.

"We're very excited about getting out on the road this summer," said System's vocalist Serj Tankian. "It's been a long time since we've done a major American tour, and with The Mars Volta on the bill, I think we're giving our fans a terrific show."

System of a Down is currently on a 10-date "guerrilla club tour" playing small venues and debuting a couple of brand new songs from their forthcoming release, "Mezmerize," Disc One of the 2-disc set "Mezmerize/Hypnotize," due out May 17. Disc Two, "Hypnotize," is expected to be released late this fall. "B.Y.O.B.," the first single from the new album, is already a Top 10 track at Rock/Alternative radio, and the band will perform the song when they appear as musical guests on "Saturday Night Live" May 7.


On a personal note - I met Serj at the Wiltern 13 Mars Volta concert and he was an amazingly nice guy.

I don't care much for SOAD.

But it sucks that this will most likely interfere with the time that the Volta will spend on stage :(

hmm, not the GREATest news... i would of rather them just headline again. this would be okay though... as long as its a smaller venue. how big of a venue do you think system would play? and if anyone's from Toronto, what venue do you think, the opera house, the kool haus, or the ACC, or what? cause the mars volta are playing the kool haus this time, and im just thinking SOAD would probably play a bigger place

i dont think its a particularly good combo. lots of system fans are used to chunky metal/rock riffs with Serj's powerful operatic voice behind it

dunno how they'll react to Cedrics wailing and Omars crazy improv
