GWAR, CRADLE OF FILTH, CKY and VAINS OF JENNA are rumored to be teaming up for the next installment of the "Viva La Bands" tour, organized by Bam Margera of "Jackass" fame. The trek is expected to kick off in October and will reportedly visit over 20 cities in the USA.

The "Bam Margera Presents…Viva La Bands, Vol. 2" CD/DVD combo, the latest in Bam Margera 's unique musical vision shared with his fans, will hit stores on September 4, 2007 and feature unreleased tracks from CLUTCH, IN FLAMES, CKY, CHILDREN OF BODOM, VAINS OF JENNA, and more. The compilation will also bring together a slew of Bam's other favorite artists such as GWAR, DIMMU BORGIR and THE SOUNDS. The DVD component to this rocking release contains 30 minutes of never-before-seen Bam footage — a must-have for the "Jackass generation!"

As one of the world's leading pop culture icons, Bam has achieved success in every aspect of modern media, including TV, film, Internet, and radio. Bam has also received acclaim as one of the world's finest and most popular action sports athletes. As an established "tastemaker," Bam is determined to deliver original high-energy music to an entire generation of his peers, while engaging and inspiring music fans and musicians alike.

Bam is as excited for the release as fans around the world will be. "I'm so fucking psyched that some of my favorite bands recorded exclusive songs this time around!" he says. "CLUTCH and IN FLAMES fucking rock and my brother Jess did a sick CKY remix. Obviously THE SOUNDS are one of my favorite bands — my wife even insisted that they play our wedding. I also sent the first band I signed, VAINS OF JENNA, into the studio to record a new track for the record." Revealing what will make the DVD a must-have for Bam fans, he adds "I'm finding some of my best, unused footage for the DVD. Everyone keeps asking me for a CKY5 but I think this DVD might be the closest thing to that!"
