Many of Cool Tour's notable artists had a few words to say about this exciting new festival! “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.”
Tommy Giles Rogers, vocalist of Between The Buried And Me is beyond thrilled. “Somehow, Between The Buried And Me, the un-coolest band on the planet, is part of a tour called Cool Tour. Even though this will not make us become cool, we are stoked to be a part of the tour. Pumped to get back around the U.S. and melt your fucking faces off.”
Booking agent Tim Borror of The Agency Group had some final words to say about Cool Tour. “To say I'm excited about Cool Tour this summer would sound too plain and generic. I'm more than excited; it's my honor to work with the people putting this thing together behind the scenes and my honor to work with these bands. I already have great relationships with a few of these bands and I'm at the beginning of starting great relationships with the rest of them. Good times with good people making great music. Fuckin' A, the Cool Tour!”

4/22/2010 3:57:59 PM
Okay, ferguson. I'm not allowed to go to a show because I think two of the bands playing are shit, when I really wanna see 2 of them and the rest I feel indifferent for? Nice thinking. Your username really says much about you, turd. Piece of shit.
4/22/2010 4:15:38 PM

"xburnfacex 4/22/2010 10:03:44 AM Would go for TAS and TAS only." Agreed, but I will not go in fear of seeing people like Turd at this show... Along with the mass of other shitty people that this tour will inevitably unearth.
4/22/2010 11:30:33 PM

4/26/2010 1:21:20 PM
I bet the guarantee for this tour is outrageous. Of course every promoter will make $it$ without a problem due to the surplus of gays that would actually piss money away for something like this.
5/5/2010 7:59:39 PM
