If there is ever a good reason to be jealous of geeks being residents of the U.S., feel free to pile on and check this out! Linkin Park and 30 Seconds to Mars will be touring together this summer, with AFI joining as special guest act. The announcement was made yesterday at a Hollywood press conference and hyped with the release of a trailer featuring the bands on tour. For those of you lucky enough to catch any of the concerts, save up and prepare yourselves for the kick off set for August 8 at Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida.

If any of you are unfamiliar with AFI, check out our review of their latest album, “Buriels”.
