They join already confirmed acts including main stage headliners Kiss, Queen and Faith No More.
SONISPHERE KNEBWORTH has announced a further eleven acts for its 2012 event.
A festival spokesman said: "Exactly ten years to the date after its original release, Long Island hardcore innovators glassjaw will perform their landmark Worship & Tribute album in its entirety exclusively at Sonisphere.
"Formed in 1993, glassjaw took their hardcore and punk influences and DIY attitude to create a genre defying sound entirely their own."
Another ten-year anniversary comes in the form of Hundred Reasons' Ideas Above Our Station, which the Aldershot quintet will perform in full in Bohemia on the Friday.
Guitarist Larry Hibbitt said: "We are galactically excited to be playing Sonisphere Festival 2012.
"It's been way too long and we can't wait to get back to doing exactly what we do best. See you at the front."
Black Stone Cherry guitarist, Ben Wells, said the festival would be a landmark show for the band.
"Now we can check off another goal on the ole BSC 'wanna do it' list," he said.
"We can't wait to make our debut at Sonisphere 2012."
