After finishing up their first European tour and showing up as headliners in some recent festival announcements, the Disco Biscuits continue to flesh out an impressive 2008 tour schedule. We recently came across some rather defensive Bisco fanatics, but here’s even more news that ought to brighten their spirits (and bolster their defenses):

Today, MCP Presents and The Disco Biscuits have confirmed the first list of performers slated for Camp Bisco VII, the seventh annual three-day music and arts festival in Mariaville, New York this July 17-19, 2008. The 25+ performer lineup at the multi-stage camping festival includes:

The Disco Biscuits (3 nights)
Snoop Dogg (performing with a live band)
DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist
MSTRKRFT
Younger Brother Live
2020 Soundsystem
The New Deal
!!!
Tea Leaf Green
Lotus
Fiction Plane
RAQ
Eliot Lipp (Live PA);
LA Riots
Lazaro Casanova
DB
Dubwar NYC
Future Rock
The Bridge
Telepath
Amplive
Orchard Lounge
Grimace Federation
U-Melt
Strut
Jamie McLean
Push
Jimkata.

More artists and festival details will be announced in the coming weeks.

Maybe the next time some Philly bloggers want to talk shit about the band, fans will just point to this lineup and say, “Snoop disagrees….beeyatch!”

On a quieter note, the band also announced that it will be returning to Jamaica with jammin’ buddies, Umphrey’s McGee, to celebrate the second Caribbean Holidaze festival this December.
