    Does that REALLY matter?
    A 90 minute set from those guys would be awesome! That and they are not coming to Michigan on the tour so It would kickass if they went to CPF.

    Not to mention that they also have Texas dates scheduled on May 7th, 8th and 9th (unfortunately, as I'd love to see them there as well).

    They recently played Heathen Crusade III in November. They were very good. I personally don't see them coming back over this quickly for the CPF '09.

    I saw that The Eternal announced a fest date in Texas on May 8th perhaps they will play Powerfest on the nineth.

    @ prncsslime - Scorps would rock! Altho' they're arena rockers and may be somewhat out of reach(?) for CPF you'll get no complaints from me about them.

    @ Mike - In Flames & Dark Tranquillity would be cool as separate entities or together for a combo set. If they did happen to agree to a combo it would probably have the potential to draw masses from all over the place.

    FYI...our plan is to make a band announcement one way or another on Monday...even if headliners haven't confirmed yet. We've waited long enough & feel confident enough with the lineup so far that we think people will at least be very intrigued.

    Think of it as the first jab...with the knock out to follow shortly. :p

    Thanks for the update, Rob!

    Let me add another wish-list band to the list of "potentials":

    Sacred Reich

    If they agree to get their bums out of AZ and play "Independent" and more at CPF someday then I'm a happy camper with a huge grin on my face, like this -> :D

    Check out this analogy, all other US metal festivals are this dreaded out ninja wannabe guy, and Chicago Powerfest is the shaved head white dude.



    Bitch you're gonna get owned Chicago style!

    Do you want to be just like someone on T.V.?


    Haha

    They did a killer cover of War Pigs once at The Thirsty Whale.

    Yeah. Bring it!

    Its not even noon yet guys. I figure most press releases are at least an hour or so afterwards...

    Anyway if I didn't have class, I would have stayed up to 12 am and be like "hey its Monday! Why haven't you announced the bands!?":lol:
