Ozzfest 2008 Details Announced
May 15, 2008
All eyes and ears will be on Dallas, Texas Saturday, August 9 as Ozzfest, the original and iconic hard rock festival, returns in 2008 as a one-day stadium spectacular that teams Ozzfest founder and namesake Ozzy Osbourne (in his only U.S. concert appearance this summer) with Metallica (marking their Ozzfest debut).

Produced by Sharon Osbourne and AEG Live, the all-day festival at Pizza Hut Park in hard music-loving Dallas will feature three stages of non-stop talent (with many Ozzfest alumni) and reliably twisted Ozzfest side attractions.

The full main stage lineup will also spotlight performances by Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Hellyeah, Jonathan Davis (Korn), Cavalera Conspiracy, Shadows Fall, Apocalyptica and In This Moment. Also scheduled on the main stage is a special all-star tribute to slain Pantera guitarist ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott. Second stage acts include Sevendust, Devildriver, Kingdom of Sorrow, Soilent Green, Witchcraft and Goatwhore. The Texas (third) Stage — “an homage to the many great metal bands that come from Texas,” says Sharon Osbourne--features The Sword, Drowning Pool, Rigor Mortis, The Destro, and Within Chaos.

Ozzy just finished an 11-month world tour so I think he deserves a summer off,” Sharon says about this year’s one-day Ozzfest. “We’re going to be a stadium destination festival for now--we have gone past doing the sheds every summer. We’ve given everyone else the blueprint and we have to keep evolving Ozzfest. This is just the beginning; AEG Live and I have a lot of new ideas for Ozzfest.”

This year’s dynamic line-up encompasses artists who’ve played Ozzfest before in different incarnations such as Serj Tankian (System of a Down); Jonathan Davis (Korn); Hellyeah’s Vinnie Paul (Pantera) and Chad Gray (Mudvayne); Kingdom of Sorrow’s Jamie Jasta (Hatebreed) and Kirk Windstein (Down); and Max Cavalera (Soulfly, Sepultura) of Cavalera Conspiracy. Other Ozzfest graduates include Shadows Fall, Sevendust, Devildriver, Drowning Pool and In This Moment.

Ozzy has great relationships with all of the bands that have played Ozzfest,” says Sharon. “We’re the only real festival for harder edge bands and these artists have been very loyal to us--there is lots of love on this line-up.”

Tickets for this year’s Ozzfest will go on sale Saturday, May 31. For up-to-the-minute details go to www.Ozzfest.com.

Droid Fights With Korn, New Video On HBB And More
October 23, 2007
Contrary to the rumors that Droid has left Korns "Bi#%h! We Have A Problem" tour, Droid continues to destroy the stage, and Droid guitarist Jamie Teissere breaks the silence to clear the air about rumors of Droid being sent home.

The rumors are not true, says Jaime, We are on our way to Tucson, Arizona as we speak and will continue until the end of the tour.

Munky could not be reached for comment, but label representative Christy Priske had this to say: The band and label bond is as strong as ever. The band has not been asked to leave the tour. Jamie & Munky have been best friends for years and the reported fight they got in was nothing more than a drunken scuffle that ended in apologies. All is well in both camps and Droid are moving forward to finish the tour.

Droid are also pleased to announce that their brand-new video for the single Fueled By Hate can be seen on MTV2s Headbangers Ball as well as the Headbangers Blog. The video will can also be seen on Fuel TV, AOL Music on Demand, Yahoo Music, Music Choice On Demand, and Singingfool.com.
