To say this is skate-related is a bit of a stretch, but we thought we’d share this Viva La Bands news item for the Bam fans out there…

THE MIGHTY GWAR ADDED TO THE 2007
“VIVA LA BANDS” TOUR LINEUP

Tickets On Sale Starting August 18th

New York, NY · August 16, 2007 /PRNewswire/ — Bam Margera and the rest of the VIVA crew are proud to announce the addition of the mighty GWAR to the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK “Viva La Bands"¢ 2007 Tour!”

“This tour is now a full blown rock show since we confirmed GWAR,” said Bam Margera. “GWAR assures the tour of even more madness and mayhem.” GWAR singer Oderus Urungus added, “I guess Bam didn’t get enough of us when we were on “Viva La Bam”. We’re excited to torture him some more on this tour.”

The ROCKSTAR Viva La Bands Tour (http://www.vivalabands.com/) hits 30 cities in the US and Canada September 24th through November 3rd 2007. Featured acts already announced include Grammy Award"¢ nominated British metal act Cradle of Filth, hard rockers CKY (featuring Bam’s brother, Jesse Margera) and hot Swedish band Vains of Jenna, who Bam recently signed to his Filthy Note records. Tickets for the tour go on sale this Saturday, August 18th.

The tour comes on the heels of the release of “Viva La Bands: Volume 2”, a compilation CD/DVD that will appear in stores nationwide on September 4, 2007 through a joint venture between Bam’s Filthy Note label and Ferret Music. The double disc CD/DVD includes twenty bands from around the globe, rare Bam DVD footage, and seven exclusive tracks recorded just for the project (brand new selections from Clutch, Bloodhound Gang, Children Of Bodom, In Flames, CKY, and more).

In addition to the musical acts on the tour, Viva La Bands will be projecting more than 60 minutes of exclusive video content including deleted scenes from Bam’s wildly successful MTV series “Viva La Bam"¢”.

Bam will be promoting the album and tour on September 5th during an appearance on FUSE’s rock show, THE SAUCE. Don’t forget to tune in at 6pm EST!!
