Mark Hunter, CHIMAIRA vocalist, boasts, "We are happy to announce that we will be taking part in this year's Sounds of the Underground. We played the first year and we had a fucking blast. This year we are going to up the production level and bring something special to our fans. Then we will get wasted every night with ETID and GWAR. See you this summer!"

Continuing another tradition, Hot Topic will carry the 2007 version of the 2CD + 1 DVD Sounds of the Underground exclusive compilation. Look for it in-stores and online in late June.
