System Of a Down & Mars Volta Plan Summer Tour

For what will be one of the most potent rock double-bills in recent memory, System Of A Down and the Mars Volta will team for a two-month North American tour later this year. Dates and venues have yet to be announced for the outing, which will begin in early August and feature support from an as-yet-unconfirmed third band.

This will be SOAD’s first extended North American tour since 2002. “With the Mars Volta on the bill, I think we’re giving our fans a terrific show,” says SOAD frontman Serj Tankian.

The group will be out in support of “Mesmerize,” the first of two discs it will release this year. That set arrives May 17 via American Recordings, while the second album, “Hypnotize,” is due in the fall. First single “B.Y.O.B.” is No. 9 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks chart this week; the band will perform it May 7 on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”
