106.5 The End to resurrect Weenie Roast?

Click on the home page of WEND 106.5 The End and there's a banner ad announcing Weenie Roast `12. The station will be announcing the lineup this week. Recently resurrected cross continental alternative rock band Garbage, who released its first album in seven years in late May, is listed as one of the festival's headliners. The other artist posted Monday was Evans Blue. Our Lady Peace, Charlotte's Paper Tongues, Anberlin, Coheed & Cambria, and Switchfoot have since been added to the bill.

The concert is set for September 16 at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre.

Coincidentally WEND's End of Summer Weenie Roast and Garbage bowed out around the same time. The alt-rock band went on indefinite hiatus after 2005's "Bleed Like Me." The End hosted what was assumed would be it's "last weenie" on September 11, 2005 with headliner Three Doors Down as well as Shinedown, Alter Bridge, and 30 Seconds to Mars. Garbage released its debut album in 1995 - the same year of the inaugural Weenie Roast.

Updates about the September 16 lineup and ticket information will be posted as it becomes available.
