From the start, Slipknot has carved out its own unique space in the world of metal, taking things to a whole new level.

Slipknot was formed in 1995 by local Des Moines musicians Shawn Crahan and Paul Gray. The pair brought on other local musicians and started to experiment with their sound.

After self-financing the band’s debut album, Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat., in 1996 and failing to pick up any major attention, Slipknot changed musical direction, adding melodic vocals to their music. The band also went through many lineup changes before settling on the core nine members of the group: Sid Wilson, Joey Jordison, Paul Gray, Chris Fehn, Jim Root, Craig Jones, Shawn Crahan, Mick Thomson, and Corey Taylor.

This new musical style and the band’s strong set of members attracted the attention of Roadrunner Records. which signed the band for a seven-album deal. The band’s first album on the label, Slipknot, was released in 1999 and did favorably on the U.S. album charts for a first album. Nonetheless, the album went on to eventually be certified platinum after the band’s extensive touring schedule picked up hordes of fans between 1999 and 2000.

This large fan base proved vital with the release of the band’s second album, Iowa, in 2001, which shot to number one in the UK album charts and hit number three in the U.S.

Slipknot’s popularity and mainstream success have earned the band recognition from multiple awarding bodies such as the Kerrang! Awards and even the Grammy Awards after the band’s 2005 single “Before I Forget” from its album Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) won them an award for Best Metal Performance.

Inspired by the likes of Black Sabbath, Metallica, and Led Zeppelin, the band has put its own chaotic stamp on the genre of nu metal. Slipknot is a band that is prepared to constantly experiment and evolve, and its fans love them because of this.

With a recently released album — The End, So Far — Slipknot is taking to the stage in a global tour, continuing to deliver a show unlike any other. For Slipknot maggots, there has never been a better time than now to find a nearby concert.

Live reviews

Origionally written for kingcrimsonprog.wordpress.com

Since I hadn’t seen them since Vol. 3, there is a lot of material I have never caught live yet. As I said, I like every Slipknot album. (Probably every Slipknot song if you don’t count demos and remixes). Unfortunately, they didn’t play anything off of ‘Gray Chapter this time, which I was a bit gutted by. I really like that album and would have loved to see something like ‘Custer,’ ‘AOV’ or ‘Sarcastrophe’ live. ‘Custer’ especially. From the first time I heard it I said to myself ”that is a song that will be in their setlists forevermore.” They also only played one song from All Hope Is Gone. I guess that’s reason enough to try see them a few more times, as I really want to catch more songs I haven’t heard live before. I’m keen to hear it all.

But given how great the new album is, I was most keen to see material from We Are Not Your Kind live. I was thinking about how much I wanted it on such a regular basis since end of the week that the album was released and it had all started to click with me. Turns out I was in luck, because if you count the 2018 stand-alone single ‘All Out Life’ which technically isn’t on the album (but which features the lyric ‘we are not your kind’ repeatedly chanted and I always mentally count as being part of that album, and have attached to the album in my itunes and on my phone and just pretend it is on the album anyway), then they played 5 new songs. Aforementioned ‘All Out Life.’ Big single ‘Unsainted,’ which opened the show. The dark, weird, almost formless album closer ‘Solway Firth.’ The groovy ‘Birth Of The Cruel’ and the stompy new single ‘Nero Forte.’ It was great to see this much new material live. It shows you how much confidence the band must have in the new album, and given the audience reaction, this confidence was well placed.

Not counting intros and outros over the speakers, there were 17 tracks. 6 of which I had never seen live before. Pretty great value. No wonder they didn’t have room for much material off All Hope’ or ‘Gray Chapter. The rest of the set featured the big singles from Vol 3; ‘Duality,’ ‘Before I Forget’ and ‘Vermillion’ as well as many classic concert favourites from the debut like ‘(Sic),’ ‘Surfacing’ and ‘Eyeless’ and topped off with a few of the heavier numbers from Iowa, like ‘Disasterpiece’ and ‘People=Shit.’

Slipknot are pretty great at mixing up sets, and not just playing the same thing every tour, swapping in a surprise or two, and dropping a few expected tunes now and again for a deep cut. The (sort of) surprises in the set were first album bonus-track ‘Eeyore’ and Iowa deepish-cut ‘New Abortion’ although I have seen both live before and both have been on official live releases so not super surprising if you want to be pedantic, but I was satisfied. In terms of dropping an expected tune, this time they dropped ‘Spit It Out’ which is almost unfathomable, as therefore they didn’t do the ‘’Jump The Fuck Up’’ moment, (where they make the whole crowd crouch for a few minutes then jump up in unison) but I’ve had that three times and on all their live albums too, so I was glad to lose it if it meant more time for new songs.

In terms of stage show, it was the biggest and best I’d ever seen them. There were videoscreens all over the place (even on the drums). There was pyro and steam. There were fireworks. There was a Nikki Sixx style bass guitar flamethrower like on Motley Crue’s The End DVD. There were treadmills which the more expendable members like the DJ, Sid, would go and play about on when not needed musically. He did the moonwalk on a treadmill at one point. Their setlist didn’t feature many turn-table focused songs this time so I guess he’s got to do something. Clown got a flaming baseball bat out for the keg smashes on ‘Duality.’

Performance and sound wise, it was really good. That’s not always a given. As much as love this band, they aren’t what I’d call consistent. Some bands are just perfect every single time (Hatebreed spring to mind). Slipknot are not one of those bands. I mean, when you have 9 members, complex awkward songs with atypical structures, and a singer inside a mask running around, its hard to get everything sounding perfect…

If you look across all of Slipknot’s official and unofficial live releases, you’ll notice they have been really hit and miss over the years in terms of both vocals and audio mix. Even on just their Voliminal DVD, which features footage from a few different shows, the live stuff goes from amazing to quite poor. The 9.0 live album which I mentioned earlier features material from across a whole tour, and that album has quite poor live vocals and subpar sound mixes. Conversely though the Disasterpeices and (Sic)nesses DVDs have superb live vocals and mixes and are absolutely must-own. The pro shot live stuff from various festivals on the first two album cycles is really mixed also. I remember MTV2 used to have footage of the band on the Iowa cycle in Germany, where Corey’s vocals were really muffled and the kick drums overpowered all the guitars. When I first got into them, on the debut album cycle, the only live stuff available was bootlegs, and they were always pretty rough. You could get pirate CDs from shows like their first time in London or from dates on the US Ozzfest, but you could tell from the CD that Corey was running around, bouncing and going crazy so much, that the vocals would suffer. Even my own live experiences of the band were mixed. When I saw them live myself in Belfast the mix and vocals were brilliant and its still one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. When I saw them headlining on the Vol. 3 cycle, the vocals were poor (he has discussed in interviews over the years that he was drinking heavily in that period) but the mix was great. When I saw them supporting Metallica on that same album cycle, the mix was poor but the vocals were good. As I said, its not a given.

I guess there’s a lot of variables for the soundmen to get right and lots of chances to get it wrong. Depending on how much running and bouncing singer Corey Taylor does, and how his mask affects the microphones, there’s a big gap between his best and his worst shows.

However, tonight it was great. It was pretty close to a perfect show. I mean, if I had to pick pedantic holes in it then I guess the guitar-intro to ‘Surfacing’ sounded a bit weird, and the vocals on the chorus to ‘Nero Forte’ were a bit thin, but otherwise it was magnificent.

The sound mix was perfectly balanced. Even the additional percussion was actually audible and you could tell why they have three drummers. The bass was thick. The guitars were clear and didn’t go muddy. The drum kit was powerful and you could pick every element out individually. The vocals were just right. I couldn’t have asked for a better mix.

The band were energetic and enthusiastic and played like a band on the rise. Drums were absolutely battered. Riffs were practically thrown into the crowd. I guess buoyed by the success of the new album, they are revitalised and fired-up. This was definitely the 2nd-best I ever seen them live; sceond only to that very first time I saw them, back in Belfast in 2002, which boasted many more songs from my favourite album, Iowa, in the set, and featured the classic line-up when they were still mysterious and I was wide-eyed and young. (And to be fair, my memory of that could in fact be a little clouded in a rose-tinted teenage nostalgia).

I always regretted not seeing them live on the last two album cycles, but I would have been heartbroken to miss them this time. Thank goodness for the weird phone/website discrepancy! This was awesome. One of the bands that have meant the most to me in my whole life, playing brilliantly, with a great setlist and sounding great. This is going to be a show I remember for a long time.

While still buzzed with energy from Carolina Rebellion 2015 I was on my songkick, browsing the next shows for some of the artists. I tapped on the image for Slipknot and began scrolling their tour dates. I litterally jumped to my feet when I saw they were coming to Virginia Beach. I knew I wasn't missing that show. I tapped on the link to get tickets and a short, very excited while later I was the proud owner of 2 pit tickets for my daughter and me. The songkick and live nation apps made it so easy to get tickets.

On the day of the show our energy was off the Richter. The other bands that played were perfect for priming the crowd for one of the best performances I've ever seen. We stood just a foot from the baracade and the energy was physically palpable as we waited while the stage hands made quick work of converting a simple stage into a formidable backdrop equivalent to the stuff nightmares are made of.

The buzzing started and the crowd roared and the logo encrusted curtain opened. One by one they appeared and carried us all away, into their world. We embarked on an ear bleeding, mind blowing, perfectly performed chaotic journey that could rival a Rob Zombie movie. It wasn't just a show, it was an adventure full of flashing lights, flames so big we could feel the heat, and Slipknot hypnotizing our minds and our bodies with their dark, poetic, brain melting music. Riffs and lyrics not just entering our ear drums but leeching into every fiber of our human form, putting us all into a head banging trance as only slipknot is capable of doing.

By the end of the night our voices were gone from singing along, our ears buzzing with the echo of what we just witnessed. And our minds, we'll they will never be the same again. Will I go see another Slipknot show, absolutely every chance I get and I will be in the pit for every one of them. It was the most epic night of my life. Thank you, Slipknot, for one hell of an adventure. Let's do it again sometime, real soon.

Slipknot's reputation is legendary. This cult classic band has developed a huge following and is one of the most successful metal and hard rock bands in history.

Slipknot's live show is an incredible experience. Frontman Corey Taylor is so energetic and gets the audience basically eating out of the palm of his hand. The rest of the band are like an intense ball of anger and energy.

The band often opens up with their best seller, "Duality", a high energy, fast paced nu metal track that crushes the audience, especially those of us in the epic mosh pit.

In that moment, you get absorbed: Slipknot are chugging away with their roaring vocals wailing and wailing on, striking every nerve in my body and making me want to thrash and scream the lyrics along with all of my passion.

Seeing this band live and in person is an incredible experience, and I seriously recommend every metal fan to go see them whenever they are given a chance. They are incredible. Their presence is phenomenal and their loud, abrasive sound is so clear and powerful.

Slipknot have always had a distinct style and it is heavy and far above other bands in the genre. The singer, Corey Taylor, has a lot of drive, and ambition, and the band is very creative. I truly cannot recommend this band enough.

This was a really, amazing concert, Slipknot is one of the best live bands in the world in my opinion. They're an energetic band and they know how to bring the noise. The guys in the band are really nice to the fans. I hung around near the tours buses after the show and met Mick and Jay, who were more than willing to come say 'hello' and sign things. Really great guys.

The show itself was perfect, but I do need to warn you if you wanna be in the pit, you gotta be careful and stay safe. The crowd does get really rowdy and people will shove. Careful with the crowd surfers too, try to avoid getting kicked in the face. Other than that, everyone in the crowd was really kind and will help you out if there's a lot of pushing.

This was my first Slipknot concert and my fourth concert I've been to. This band really did make quite an impression, and from everyone that's seen them live before, they aren't lying at how incredible these guys are. Chris was very active the entire show and so was Corey, despite his broken neck. The guys will recognize you if you call their name or something, Mick and Jim did wave and point at my friends and I.

I really urge you to see Slipknot live if your considering it. I promise you won't regret it.

A giant curtain concealed the stage for a half hour as the men in masks built their carnival of horror, so it wasn’t until 9:30pm when Van Halen’s “Runnin’ With the Devil” predicted the start of the show. Still in secretive mode, “XIX” was piped over the PA before any member of the band was shown. As the anticipation became something you could feel in the air, I wondered if Slipknot would deliver. I always have a hard time enjoying bands that I’ve never really listened to, so I couldn’t help but doubt that some nu metal band from Iowa would entertain me more than Lamb of God. But as the curtain split in half, to reveal an 8-piece band surrounded by a river of fire, I realized that Slipknot were in another league when it came to stage presence. The multi-level setup reminded me of King Diamond’s latest tour, but with a trio of percussionists (two of whom were beating kegs from spinning platforms), more pyrotechnics than I’ve ever seen at Red Rocks, a giant horned mask and funhouse mirror, it was the metal concert equivalent of Cirque du Soleil.

As usual...SLIPKNOT shows why they are one of the biggest headlining acts in metal today...In metal history...The set list was a perfect blend touching on every one of their albums...Lamb Of God was also phenomenal as always...I missed the first 2 bands but I'm glad I didn't have to spend one minute more than I had to at that god awful venue...$60 ticket and what a terrible setup...It's almost a mile walk from anywhere you park to the door...And the staff??? WOW!!! Slower than any trip to the DMV and even worse attitude...If you're gonna charge me $13 for a beer that costs $1.29 at the store LEARN HOW TO POUR!!! The merch booth staff were on point though...However...I'll never attend ANY show at this horrible venue as long as I live...Had that not been 2 of the best bands on this planet I would've had a lot worse to say...

First Niagara Pavillion is ill equipped to provide concert goers with a topnotch music experience. Halfway through Marilyn Manson's set the power went out and we sat in the dark for 2 hours waiting for the show to resume. Meanwhile, we stood, drenched with rain, watching drunken fools slide down the hill on mudslides and throw mudballs at everyone. Finally, they announced the show was cancelled due to lack of power, and the mud-sliders started chanting "F*ck You", kicking over garbage cans and breaking things. The worst concert of my life, and it had zero to do with any of the live acts. Actually, what I saw of Of Mice & Men, which I wasn't really familiar with, was pretty good. I've never really cared for Manson, but the show before the power went out was pretty good.

Slipknot were amazing, first time seeing them live. However... the sound system was dire, we really had to shift forward to hear what was going on. We could only hear the bassline and some drums. Couldn’t hear guitars or vocals clear. My videos picked the sound up a little, but you can hear everyone talking it was that quiet. Only reason I say this is that I saw Korn play with Limp Bizkit at this same venue (Arena Birmingham) in 2016... and Ray Luziers drums standing at the back of the venue near where you walk in, his snares and kicks hit you in the chest like thunder, and you could hear the clarity of the vocals, guitars, bass, everything. This time around for Slipknot unfortunately the sound just wasn’t on par which is a shame

I've seen Slipknot quite a few times now, and they ALLWAYS deliver a remarkable show, with proper energy, musical quality in their performance, and almost theatrical charismatics that keeps blowing me away.

The Telenor Arena's sound ALMOST ruined the experience, as it just can't handle this sort of scale audience, the whole audio-experience seems dull and horribly low quality if you move anywhere towards the middle of the crowd or backwards in the standing section of the audience.

First part of slipknot and All of behemoth was simply drowned out, and they somehow managed to turn the sound up a notch throughout the show.. but I won't be going back there, unless they either lower the prices or upp their sound-quality.

SLIPKNOT Announce Here Comes The Pain North American Summer Tour

Facebook icon

Celebrating 25 Years of ‘Slipknot’ with special guests Knocked Loose, Orbit Culture, and Vended

Knotfest artist presale tickets available today at 12pm et here, general public on sale friday, may 3 at 10 am local here.

Heavy titans and cultural phenomenon SLIPKNOT are pleased to announce the North American portion of their Here Comes The Pain Tour . This year the nine are celebrating the 25th anniversary of their seminal debut album, Slipknot , which catapulted the band back in 1999.

In addition to recently announced dates across the globe, the Here Comes The Pain Tour , produced by Live Nation, includes arena plays nationwide this Summer. Highlights include New York City’s Madison Square Garden, Los Angeles’ Intuit Dome, Austin’s Moody Center and more with direct support from Kentucky’s young and vibrant hardcore/metal forerunners, Knocked Loose . Orbit Culture and Vended are confirmed as support on select dates.

Knotfest.com’s artist presale tickets are available  today at 12PM ET here . Tickets will be available to the general public on Friday, May 3 at 10 AM Local here . See below for a full list of dates including Slipknot’s homecoming performance at Knotfest Iowa in which the band will play a unique set drawing heavily from their 1999 debut, celebrating 25 years of the self-titled album along with their fans.

There actually was a time when Slipknot and the maggots (the loving name for their fans) did not completely rule the world. 25 years ago, the Des Moines band were just some guys trying to get their new LP noticed– a record that would start their metamorphosis into the most crucial band of the 21st century. That record would change rock as we know it, measuring success with a yardstick bigger than music, one for the influence on youth culture writ large. But these faceless demons from middle America would not only capture the hearts of the youth, they would help guide their tastes, and challenge them and their kin towards a new future.

Released on June 29th, 1999, Slipknot’s self-titled debut was a smash hit with critics and an instant classic with fans. It was, and is, a molotov cocktail signaling a revolution– embracing a creative direction that eschewed metal traditions in favor of fresh ideas. While the jaw-clenching riffs coupled with Ross Robinson’s venomous production were crucial to the album’s success, it was the care and attention to detail in the songcraft that moved the needle from “great” to “benchmark.” Not too shabby for a bunch of guys that only hoped to be heard.

“We loved what we did with the first record but we didn’t even know if there was gonna be anything after that,” recalls guitarist Jim Root . “We just wanted people to hear it. Selling out of records and shows, having successful tours– those are goals for any band. But the dream scenario in some ways, came true for us.”

In the years following, Slipknot’s popularity nipped at the heels of elder statesmen and even the band’s heroes, eventually navigating this brave new world with unending drive, fresh ideas and a bloodlust for odometer clicks. Tens of billions of streams and tens of millions of subscribers and followers later, the accolades tell the story: 64 award nominations and 27 wins including a Grammy for “Before I Forget“ from Vol. 3 .  A seemingly endless number of tour dates. Headlining slots at some of the biggest festivals in the world such as Download, Rock In Rio, Hellfest, Wacken and many more. Not to mention RIAA certifications by the truckload– 14 platinum certifications and 40 gold across more than 30 million in record and video sales.

In addition, Slipknot positioned themselves for success with the creation of their own festival Knotfest in 2012, a traveling, multi-stage and experiential event that has appeared 28 times across several countries and locations. The festival has since spun off into a successful entertainment media hub – Knotfest.com , which became a juggernaut of its own making, giving a platform to young freethinkers and like-minded artists.

All of Slipknot’s achievements have helped them claim their rightful seat as pioneers and thought leaders, establishing them as a generational talent– loved by parents AND their children alike. And of course with all those incredible live performances, all that influence, and all that history of playing all those incredible SONGS, Slipknot has only attracted the most dedicated of fans, reaching all the way back to that fateful self-titled effort.

Slipknot is approaching this 25th anniversary by making the conscious decision to connect to fans as closely as possible, in a similar way to how they encountered Slipknot all those years ago. “Every time I’ve walked on stage, it’s never been about how many people have been there because my culture, the maggots, always show up,” says founding member Shawn “clown” Crahan with a smile.

  “But as we’ve grown as a band, we have had fewer and fewer of those intimate, personal moments, trading them for massive ones. So we’re gonna make it more personal on the anniversary, but how remains to be seen. Just get ready to have your face kicked in. Because we just do what we do, spread that maggot culture – that disease. And you’ve been infected.”

Who is Slipknot?

Percussionist Shawn Crahan, former vocalist Anders Colsefni and bassist Paul Gray formed Slipknot in 1995. Vocalist Corey Taylor joined the band in 1997 as its new lead singer.

Crahan came up with the idea of wearing a mask when he brought a clown mask with him to rehearsals. Now he’s known as “The Clown.” By 1997, the band decided that everyone would wear a mask and a matching jumpsuit.

The band's seventh studio album, "The End, So Far," came out in September 2022.

Slipknot unveiled on Tuesday that they are heading on tour this summer for their Here Comes the Pain Tour to mark the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album. The news comes on the heels of the band’s announcement yesterday, April 29, that they will return to their hometown of Des Moines, Iowa to headline Knotfest 2024 .

The tour will see the group stop in North American cities such as Columbus, Baltimore, New York, Austin, Los Angeles, and Austin. They then head overseas for a slate of dates in Europe and the U.K. The group will bring Knocked Loose on the road for the entirety of the tour. Orbit Culture and Vended will join for select dates.

“Just get ready to have your face kicked in. Because we just do what we do, spread that maggot culture – that disease,” Crahan added. “And you’ve been infected.”

Tickets go on sale for the general public on May 3 at 10 a.m. local time. Fans can expect the group to deliver many of their earliest hits, which helped the group break through to a wider audience.

“We loved what we did with the first record but we didn’t even know if there was gonna be anything after that,” guitarist Jim Root said. “We just wanted people to hear it. Selling out of records and shows, having successful tours — those are goals for any band. But the dream scenario in some ways, came true for us.”

Slipknot Announce Knotfest 2024 and 25th Anniversary Tour

By Nina Corcoran

Slipknot

Slipknot have announced a 2024 North American tour that takes place this summer. The nu metal band is also returning to its hometown music festival Knotfest Iowa . This year marks the 25th anniversary of Slipknot’s self-titled album, and their festival set is billed as “a unique set drawing heavily from their 1999 debut.” See Slipknot’s full list of tour dates below.

“Every time I’ve walked onstage, it’s never been about how many people have been there because my culture, the maggots, always show up,” founding member Shawn “Clown” Crahan said in a statement. “But as we’ve grown as a band, we have had fewer and fewer of those intimate, personal moments, trading them for massive ones. So we’re gonna make it more personal on the anniversary.… Just get ready to have your face kicked in, because we just do what we do, spread that maggot culture—that disease. And you’ve been infected.”

Dubbed the Here Comes the Pain Tour, Slipknot begin their run in Noblesville, Indiana, on August 6 and perform in Baltimore, New York, Toronto, Austin, and more cities. While the North American leg ends at Knotfest Iowa in Des Moines on September 21, Slipknot have plenty more dates scheduled in Europe on through to the end of 2024. Opening select shows in North America are Knocked Loose, Orbit Culture, and Vended.

Earlier in the year, ORBIT CULTURE announced a new deal with Century Media Records .

Hailing from the small town of Eksjö, Sweden (located between the revered metal cities of Gothenburg and Stockholm), ORBIT CULTURE — consisting of guitarist and vocalist Niklas Karlsson , guitarist Richard Hansson , bassist Fredrik Lennartsson and drummer Christopher Wallerstedt — has grown into a global force, melding together, riffs that are equal parts thrash, death metal and industrial with arresting hooks and a layered atmosphere that invites comparison to GOJIRA , METALLICA and STATIC-X while carving out something that is uniquely their own.

ORBIT CULTURE 's 2023 album, "Descent" , and its subsequent EP release, "The Forgotten" , topped many recent year-end lists including Metal Hammer who described the album as "a formidable entwining of modern metal's most effective and exciting strands into an impressive milestone." Exhaustive worldwide touring and a steady stream of crowd-pummeling festival slots across the globe, have set the stage for something much larger.

In January and February, ORBIT CULTURE toured North America with MACHINE HEAD and FEAR FACTORY , as well as newcomers GATES TO HELL , on the "Slaughter The Martour" . The U.S. and Canadian run continued the Swedish band's exhaustive work in the territory, which has included tours with IN FLAMES and AVATAR and won ORBIT CULTURE a rabid fanbase and high placement on Sirius XM 's Liquid Metal "Devil's Dozen" year-end chart.

Founding member of rock band Train dies after fall in shower

A founding member of the pop-rock band Train is dead at age 58, according to a new report from TMZ .

Charlie Colin, a bassist for the Grammy-winning music group for a decade, died after slipping and falling in a shower in Brussels, Belgium. Colin’s mother told TMZ that the accident occurred while he was house-sitting for a friend; his body was discovered when his friend returned from a trip five days ago.

Colin’s sister confirmed his death to Variety .

Colin was living in Brussels at the time, teaching a music master class at a conservatory, his mother told TMZ. He was also reportedly working on music for a film and served as musical director for the Newport Beach Film Festival.

Colin formed Train in the ‘90s with singer Pat Monahan and fellow founding members Rob Hotchkiss, Jimmy Stafford and Scott Underwood. Colin played bass on Train’s first three albums, including “Meet Virginia” and the Grammy-winning smash hit “Drops of Jupiter.”

Colin left the group in 2003 due to substance abuse, according to Variety. He later performed with bands like Slipknot and Puddle of Mudd, plus formed the band Painbirds (with Hotchkiss) and Side Deal (with Sugar Ray’s Stan Frazier and the PawnShop Kings’ Joel and Scott Owen).

Train has not yet commented on Colin’s death.

The band, also known for songs like “Hey Soul Sister,” “Marry Me” and “Drive By,” begins its summer tour next month with four concerts scheduled in Upstate New York . Train will perform July 19 at the Artpark in Lewiston and three shows with REO Speedwagon on July 23 at the Broadview Stage at SPAC (Saratoga Performing Arts Center), July 24 at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, and July 31 at the Empower FCU Amphitheater in Syracuse.

Mayhem festival 2024 could fix what the metal scene desperately needs: new headliners.

STERLING HEIGHTS, MICHIGAN - MAY 23: Joe Duplantier of Gojira performs at Michigan Lottery ... [+] Amphitheatre on May 23, 2022 in Sterling Heights, Michigan. (Photo by Scott Legato/Getty Images)

It’s been a while since the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival unleashed it’s signature dose of metal mayhem across North America. The festival’s previous and thought to be final run in 2015 was somewhat of mixed bag to say the least. With its main stage lineup featuring Slayer, King Diamond, and Hell Yeah fans were left feeling underwhelmed and disappointed primarily because the festival proved it was capable of reeling in stacked and diverse lineups from it’s previous tours. 2012 for one featured Slipknot, Slayer, Motörhead, and As I Lay Dying as its main draws, and 2014 had the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Asking Alexandria and Trivium. Given the consistency of the festival in it’s previous years it was easy to understand why fans were left feeling disappointed with 2015’s lineup and why ticket sales ultimately suffered as well.

Fast forward 5 years and there were rumors of the festival making its big return in 2020. However, that was soon put to rest due the global pandemic. Now almost 10 years later it looks like Mayhem Festival will finally be making it’s longwinded return in North America, as the festival’s social media pages have all but confirmed this with an announcement teased for next week.

Knowing that it’s likely Mayhem Festival will be returning the festival has what could be a tremendous opportunity to not only reestablish itself but also further enrich the metal scene altogether, and all it needs to do is showcase a new wave headliners. Given the number of young and popular new bands in the scene at the moment there couldn’t be more a perfect opportunity for these bands to be given a shot at the headlining slot. Bands such as Spiritbox, Bad Omens, Power Trip, Sleep Token, and Knocked Loose all are headlining material in some capacity and each share the commonality of being relatively new bands.

With a festival like Mayhem Festival which has not been afraid to intermix metal sub-genres in years past, one can’t help but see there’s a massive opportunity here for the festival to make a strong comeback and also showcase a new era of headliners. The latter is something the heavy music scene has been consistently deprived of over the last decade. 20 year old plus bands like Lamb of God, Gojira, Mastodon, and Bring Me The Horizon are only recently receiving major headlining opportunities, whereas legacy and routine headlining acts like Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot, Mötley Crüe, Metallica, and Judas Priest are still the first picks when it comes to most major hard rock and metal festivals.

However, this is also where Mayhem festival might have the upper hand when it comes to presenting new and younger bands. Many of these major 3-4 day metal festivals rely on such big named acts because they need to sell 150,000-180,000 plus tickets to pack huge festival grounds. Outdoor amphitheaters the likes of which Mayhem Festival books, are the perfect space to take chances on these newer acts and give them the spotlight on the main stage. There’s not much risk involved when bands like Spiritbox, Bad Omens, and Sleep Token are capable of selling out 1,800-2,500 cap venues on their own too.

The best beers in canada according to the canadian brewing awards, nyt strands 84 hints spangram and answers for sunday may 26th.

Take for example if Mayhem Festival chose to intermix a bunch of prominent new acts like Spiritbox, Power Trip, and Lorna Shore as the main bands for the side stages, while giving bands such as Sleep Token and Architects mixed with tenured acts Lamb of God and Gojira the mainstage. This is simply one example to showcase the rich pool of superb bands Mayhem Festival could pick from, as there are plenty of other young and disregarded tenured bands that could fit the bill as well.

It would be a shame to see the festival play it safe and regurgitate lineups that it’s already had in the past with bands such as Slipknot, Rob Zombie, Korn, Avenged Sevenfold etc. And make no mistake, all of these are great and formidable acts but there desperately needs to be a new wave of headliners in the scene. Fans want it and there are plenty of bands who deserve it.
