Nice choice!

Two solid bands thus far....even if Fuel is a recycle.

Fuel hasn't been on a Summerland Tour before if that's what you meant by "recycled." Summerland 2015 is looking really good.

Another good choice. I have seen Fuel a few times live (one time with EC) and they are pretty solid. I must say, I probably know more American Hi Fi songs though. Really excited about the first two bands. Hoping the last band (announcing Wednesday) is someone pretty big in terms of this tour. This tour deserves the recognition!

By recycled he means that the current version of fuel has almost nothing to do with the one in the 90s. Their guitar player wrote all their songs, and he is gone now. The singer started to write his own songs and hired new people. The project was called Refueled at first but has been renamed since. Fun Fact: The lineups to their last two albums are entirely different. For the first one, the guitar player even hired a new singer.

I easily recognize both bands. I am impressed every year by the bands that Art and whoever else put together.

Yeah. I knew about that, wasn't sure if that's what he meant. Just look at our favorite band's changing lineups. And even Live is playing without Ed Kowalczyk. A Fuel with Brett Scallions has to be better than Carl Bell and the others without him.

So which Fuel is playing?

Any guesses on the third and final band?
My thoughts are The Offspring, Cake or Live

Fuel is now Brett Scallions (original lead singer) with other guys. I didn't hear the lineup of Fuel without him.

As far as Fuel goes, if you're going to a tour like Summerland, of coarse you'd rather see Fuel with the original singer and different band over the original band with a new singer.

So far this tour sounds awesome. Whoever the 4th band is must have been bigger than Fuel back in the day right? Offspring? That sounds logical.

Wow, I've heard a couple of people mention The Offspring now. That would be amazing! So far, my favorite lineup has been the original 2012 Summerland, but this could be a new favorite depending on today's announcement. Whoever the band is, I'm confident that Summerland will grow in popularity and give Everclear a real chance at some airplay with the new album.

It's The Toadies

Hoping tour dates come soon. And a release date on the album!
