Anthrax: Anthrax was one of the pioneering groups of thrash metal in the 80s and has continued to bringing heavy metal to audiences around the world. Considered one of the "Big Four," Anthrax's signature sound and blistering tour dates have earned them a position as metal icons. While Anthrax has experienced an ever-changing lineup since its formation, its current setup harkens back to the "classic" lineup of Joey Belladonna on vocals, Scott Ian on rhythm guitar, Rob Caggiano on lead guitar, Frank Bello on bass, and Charlie Benante on drums. This Anthrax lineup will be performing concert dates in 2011 with the "Big Four" and one-off tour dates throughout Europe, Japan, and Canada.

Scott Ian and Danny Lilker formed Anthrax in 1981 and began their rise to fame with vocalist Neil Turban. Turban was replaced by Joey Belladonna in 1984 and Anthrax began to take off with the release of Spreading the Disease in 1985. The album afforded Anthrax a number of huge tour dates in the US and Europe, and was followed up by Among the Living in 1986. It was this album that launched Anthrax into the mainstream and began to develop their signature sound. State of Euphoria experienced similar success in 1988 and was followed by hugely popular US tour dates with Living Colour. While 1990's Persistance of Time featured a more somber style, it became a huge hit and even received a Grammy nomination.

In 1992, Joey Belladonna was fired from the band and replaced by John Bush. Under Bush's tenure, Anthrax released the hugely popular albums Sound of White Noise (1993) and We've Come For You All (2003), while playing sold-out tour dates around the world. In 2005, Anthrax went on concert dates with the much beloved lineup of Ian Scott, Joey Belladonna, Charlie Benante, Dan Spitz, and Frank Bello. While the tour was successful and delighted fans, neither John Bush nor Joey Belladonna returned to the band after the tour dates were over. While fans enjoyed Dan Nelson's few tour dates with the band, Anthrax welcomed back Joey Belladonna in 2010, shortly before the first "Big Four" concert date at the Sonisphere festival.

Anthrax continues to play tour dates while fans eagerly anticipate the release of Worship Music on September 12 (even though production began in 2008) and 2011 concert dates this summer. Next up for Anthrax are tour dates in Europe beginning on July 2; some of which will include the other members of the "Big Four." Due to the expectation of Scott Ian's new child, he will be replaced by Andreas Kisser until July 16. Anthrax with Scott Ian will head to Canada for two concert dates on July 23 and make an appearance with the "Big Four" at Yankee Stadium on September 14. Beginning on December 12, Anthrax will play four tour dates in Japan, thus rounding out their concert dates for 2011. Anthrax might add more tour dates once Worship Music releases, so check Eventful for updates.

Killswitch Engage formed with the dissolution of heavy metal bands, Aftershock and Overcast, in the late '90s. Mike D'Antonio and Adam Dutkiewicz left their respective bands and recruited Joel Stroezel and Jesse Leach and conceived Killswitch. The name was taken from an episode of the sci-fi cult classic series X-Files. They recorded a demo in 1999 and toured in hopes of finding a recording contract. They released their self-titled debut through indie label Ferret Records. While the album didn't chart, it did catch the attention of A&R execs from Roadrunner Records who signed the band. They released their sophomore set, Just Breathing, in 2001 and managed to score a #37 berth on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.

Killswitch Engage tour dates took them around the country fueling their rising profile. In 2002, Killswitch Engage tour dates were booked on the Road Rage Tour in the UK and The Netherlands with 36 Crazyfists and they continued to schedule concerts throughout 2003 before returning to the studio. They released The End of Heartache in 2004 and suddenly had a hit album on their hands. The disc debuted at #21 on the Billboard 200 and went on to receive a Gold certification. Rolling Stone magazine hailed the record as a "stunning collection" and praised the album's ferocious guitar riffs. Their single "The End of Heartache" was featured in the film Resident Evil: Apocalypse and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Metal Performance in 2004. Killswitch Engage tour dates were booked at the Reading and Leeds Festival in 2006 and throughout Australia.

They released the follow-up, As Daylight Dies, in 2006 which peaked at #32 on the album charts. Their cover of Dio's '80s rock hit, "Holy Diver", became the biggest single of their career and scored them another Gold record. Killswitch Engage tour dates were booked on the No Fear Tour throughout 2007 and they entered the studio to record their most recent album. The self-titled record was released in 2009 and became their first top ten album when it debuted at #7 on the charts. They then signed on to tour along the Mayhem Festival with Marilyn Manson and Slayer that year. In 2010, Killswitch Engage tour dates were scheduled at the Download Festival. Currently, the band is working on new material for their sixth album. With a decade in the business, Killswitch Engage has provided us with the most ruthless and hard hitting metal out there.

The Devil Wears Prada: The Devil Wears Prada is an American Christian metalcore band from Dayton, Ohio, formed in 2005.[2] They are currently signed to Ferret Records.[3] The band derives its name from an anti-materialistic mindset as stated by vocalist Mike Hranica, instead of directly refering to the the novel with the same title.

In 2005, the band released a demo entitled Patterns of a Horizon. Their first full-length album was released on August 22, 2006, entitled Dear Love: A Beautiful Discord, which featured guest vocals from Cole Wallace of Gwen Stacy. A demo song titled "HTML Rulez d00d" was placed on the band's MySpace profile on January 1, 2007. On July 11, absolutepunk.net began to stream their song "Don't Dink and Drance". Their sophomore album Plagues was released subsequently on August 21, 2007. On a recent interview with East Coast Romper, the band states their influences are Underoath and Still Remains, which was mistaken on their official website saying the exact opposite. The band performed a cover for the rap song "Still Fly", originally performed by Big Tymers, the cover song was released on the compilation album Punk Goes Crunk. Mike Hranica, the band's vocalist, also manages a clothing company called Shipshape Roolz Clothing with which he sponsors and endorses bands. Some of Shipshape's scale money goes to charities such as Skate 4 Cancer. The Devil Wears Prada began writing and recording a new album entitled "With Roots Above and Branches Below" after the Warped Tour for a planned release of May 5, 2009. Vocalist, Mike Hranica, stated that they would add a little more production to their new album."Expect a much heavier and more epic record," he stated. Keyboardist , James Baney , also stated that their new album would be more mechanical but still containing their same distinct style whereas drummer , Daniel Williams , stated that the new album would be crazier and wilder than their previous albums. In Autumn 2008, they debuted a new song off their upcoming record while on tour with Underoath, Saosin, The Famine, P.O.S., and Person L.

Last year at Warped Tour, in San Antonio, Texas, before the song "HTML Rulez D00d" was played, a small bird was on the set near the drumset. The entire "bird incident" is captured on the DVD that comes with the re-release of Plagues, as well as Youtube. The Devil Wears Prada are scheduled to tour the US and Canada from March to May with A Day to Remember, Sky Eats Airplane and Emarosa. They are also scheduled to perform at Warped Tour 2009 and will be playing on the entire tour. On March 13, they released a new song entitled Dez Moines along with a new layout on their MySpace. And on March 26, 2009, a song clip entitled "Assistant to the Regional Manager" was leaked onto Youtube. With the pre-order of their new album titled, "With Roots Above And Branches Below", you are given the option to receive several pre-orderd packages. One including a CD/DVD/Shirt deal, also it comes with a card with a code that lets you download two new unreleased songs, "Dez Moines", and "Assistant to the Regional Manager." "With Roots Above And Branches Below" was released May 5, 2009. Since the released date, the sales to the CD have been very satisfactory landing the CD #11 on the Billboard 200 for top albums.[5]

On April 22, 2009, the song "Sassafras" was released on their MySpace page. On the weekend of April 24-26, 2009, the entire album was available for listening to on Shockhound.com before its official scheduled release date on May 5, 2009.
