I also think it's good there are a few veteran bands on the tour. There are some bands that I'm looking forward to, just not as many. I still think there are way too many chugga-chugg bands on the tour this year, though. haha
Compared to previous years there aren't nearly as many "chugga-chugg" bands on the tour, I counted 11. There are a few bands I do not know on the tour though. I hope you don't dismiss all metalcore, post-hardcore, hardcore etc bands as genericore either, as there are so great bands among the 'heavier' bands this year. E.g August Burns Red, While She Sleeps, Architects, Stick to your Guns.
