SoCal-based rockers Alien Ant Farm will need to go shopping for some winter duds as they sign on as the headlining act at this yearís SnoCore Rock Tour. Singer Dryden Mitchell is sure to bring his unique "my head weighs a ton and Iím trying to balance it" dance to the seventh annual installment of the show, which will kick off February 15 in Providence, RI. Though the majority of the routing has yet to be determined, the tour plans to last six weeks, coming to a close at the end of March on the West Coast. Last yearís event featured Fear Factory, Kittie, Union Underground, Boy Hits Car, and Slaves On Dope. Fenix TX, Glassjaw and at least one other group will offer support to AAF this year as they make their way across the states. In other AAF news, the group will be performing at the Big Day Out tour of Australia and New Zealand from Jan 18 ñ Jan 28, after which they will hit several European markets before returning home for the SnoCore shows.
