GWAR, CRADLE OF FILTH, CKY and VAINS OF JENNA all sat down with the JamNOW.com crew to chat at the New Jersey stop of the "Rockstar Viva La Bands 2007 Tour". Head to JamNOW.com/VivaLaBands to listen to interviews with Oderus, Dani Filth, Deron Miller and all the boys of VAINS OF JENNA.
The tour comes on the heels of the release of "Viva La Bands: Volume 2", a compilation CD/DVD that appeared in stores nationwide on September 4 through a joint venture between Filthy Note and Ferret Music. The double disc CD/DVD includes twenty bands from around the globe, rare Bam Margera DVD footage, and seven exclusive tracks recorded just for the project (brand new selections from CLUTCH, BLOODHOUND GANG, CHILDREN OF BODOM, IN FLAMES, CKY, and more).
"The 'Viva La Bands' project lets me bring music I love to my fans that might not even know some of this rock exists," said Margera. "The Rockstar Energy Drink guys totally get what I wanted 'Viva La Bands' to be all about. They are great supporters of rock music and understand that this is supposed to be more than just another concert experience. It's a new-age vaudeville show."
In addition to the musical acts on the tour, "Viva La Bands" is projecting over sixty minutes of exclusive video content including deleted scenes from Bam's wildly successful MTV series "Viva La Bam".
"My MTV shows sometimes don't air the really funny or risky scenes so I raided their vault and decided to put the best never-before-seen clips on tour," said Margera. "I'll also preview some behind the scenes footage from my new film currently in production, 'Minghags'."
