Taste of Chaos 2009 is the fifth installment of the Taste of Chaos tours created by Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman. Lyman handpicked each band for the tour and believes they are "all on the brink of breakout success." Bring Me the Horizon, Four Year Strong, and Pierce the Veil will rotate their set for each date on the tour. As in previous years, one Battle of the Bands winner from each city will open for this tour.
