HEAVY MTL Lineup Gives You A Good Hint As To Which Bands Are Touring This Summer

The lineup is usually a good indication of which bands will be on tour this summer, as it's very rare for a band to just book this festival. So let's take a look at who's touring this summer, via the fest's just announced lineup:

Avenged Sevenfold
Rob Zombie
Megadeth
Godsmack
Danzig featuring Doyle
A Day to Remember
Children of Bodom
Mastodon
August Burns Red
At the Gates
Amon Amarth
Machine Head
Steel Panther
Gwar
Of Mice & Men
Finntroll
Baroness
Wintersun
Obey the Brave
The Acacia Strain
Halestorm
All Shall Perish
Cryptopsy
Augury
Unexpect
Oceano
Within the Ruins
Structures
Blackguard
Slaves on Dope
Havok

Tickets go on sale this Thursday at noon at the Heavy MTL website.

Obviously a good portion of these bands are on the already announced Mayhem Festival and Summer Slaughter tour but then there are some strays.

Is At The Gates only playing Heavy MTL or will they play a few shows to warm up beforehand? Avenged Sevenfold haven't announced a tour yet, but they should be putting out an album this year, so that shouldn't be a surprise. Wintersun will definitely be touring, they can't afford to fly over just to play this one festival, can they?
