As previously reported, DISTURBED frontman David Draiman revealed during an appearance on the Seattle station 99.9 KISW that his band will also be appearing on this summer's Ozzfest.

DISTURBED's last appearance on Ozzfest was in 2003, when they shared the main stage with OZZY OSBOURNE, KORN, MARILYN MANSON and CHEVELLE.

In addition to DISTURBED and BODY COUNT, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY's booking agent recently told Billboard magazine that Zakk Wylde and Co. have also been confirmed for this summer's trek. Additional offers to play the tour have been extended to AVENGED SEVENFOLD and ATREYU, according to recently published interviews with both artists.
