In a great conspiracy to wipe the earth of even the memory of Lust Control, the two-day Bamboozle Festival released its lineup. And, once again, Lust Control cannot be found on it.

“I don’t give a rip,” says lead vocalist Gene. “I really don’t. Do you have any more questions?” he asks, irritated. “My frozen lunch has just come out of the microwave. Can I just go now before it gets cold?”

Other bands on the bill include: The Devil Wears Prada, MUTEMATH, Relient K, Paramore, Hanson and many more. Fest takes place May 1 and 2 at Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, NJ.
