Sevendust, Filter, and Gravity Kills lead the lineup for the inaugural Locobazooka tour, due to kick off June 27 at Milwaukee's Summerfest. Audiovent, Nonpoint, Reveille, and Mushroomhead are also confirmed for the trek, with additional bands to be added.

The tour takes its name from a concert held for the past nine years in Worcester, Mass., and sponsored by radio station WAAF. Last year's event featured Disturbed, Rollins Band, and Kittie, plus this year's tour participants Nonpoint and Reveille. The Worcester-based edition of Locobazooka is set for Sept. 22.

Sevendust is touring in support of its latest TVT album, "Animosity," which is No. 25 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart this week. Filter will be previewing material from its next Reprise set, "The Amalgamut," due July 23. Gravity Kills' latest Sanctuary set, "Superstarved," was released in March.

As previously reported, both Sevendust and Reveille are on the bill for the fourth Cutty Whiskey Rock the Boat tour, which hits Lincoln, Neb., tonight (May 7).
