The lineup for the second-annual Rockstar Uproar Festival has been announced, and the top of the marquee looks awfully familiar to that of last year—O.C. hard rockers Avenged Sevenfold will return to headline the tour once more. "When we started hearing from our fans they wanted to see us back on Uproar this year, we thought, last year was a blast so let's do it again. The fans are crazy and the bands kick ass,” says Avenged Sevenfold's frontman M. Shadows.

Joining A7X on the mainstage will be Three Days Grace, Seether, Bullet For My Valentine and Escape The Fate. The second stage will feature Sevendust, Black Tide, Art Of Dying and the Black Cloud Collective. The tour will crisscross North America from Aug. 26 to Oct. 15; dates TBA.
