MTV2 and Time Warner Cable could be giving Los Angeles rock band Art of Chaos a chance to make it big.
By winning “LA Battle Projekt,” a 135-band contest generated by MTV2’s “On the Rise” online music community, Art of Chaos will open up for Grammy-winning rockers Linkin Park at their Los Angeles tour stop for “Projekt Revolution.”
The final five bands left in the LA Battle Projekt competition duked it out Wednesday in front of celebrity judges for the chance to open up for Linkin Park. The sold-out show was taped for MTV2 and will air exclusively on Time Warner Cable’s Local On-Demand and Music On-Demand starting Aug. 23.
Judges at the concert included Brad Delson and Rob Bourdon of Linkin Park; professional skateboarder and star of MTV’s Rob & Big Rob Dyrdek; and Atlantic Records senior vice president of artists and repertoire Danny Wimmer.
The Los Angeles stop for the Projekt Revolution tour is July 28, and it will feature Art of Chaos. The concert will also include bands My Chemical Romance and Taking Back Sunday. The concert will be held at Hyundai Pavillion in San Bernardino, Calif.
