The Mayhem Festival has become the summer's hottest ticket by giving fans the opportunity to experience a thrilling mix of hard music's most influential artists and exciting young voices. This summer's lineup turns up the heat with a main stage lineup that sees Korn and Rob Zombie joined by Lamb Of God and Five Finger Death Punch.
The Jagermeister stage will feature Hatebreed, Chimaira, Shadows Fall, Winds Of Plague and the Jagermeister Battle of The Bands Winner. The second stage will spotlight Atreyu, Norma Jean, In This Moment and 3 Inches Of Blood.
The World's Greatest Freestyle Motocross team, Metal Mulisha, will return to rev up audiences with their unique style of death-defying motorcycle stunts. Also featured on this year's tour will be the bombastic Beacher's Madhouse, a sexy costume party combined with outrageous variety acts, beautiful dancers, scantily-clad Beacher's Babies, DJ's and so much more. Comedian Jay Oakerson (seen on Comedy Central) will also be on hand to deliver an onslaught of unbridled awesomeness and raunchy rock n roll comedy.
The Mayhem Festival will be the first major city tour for Korn in support of their 9th studio album, tentatively titled Korn III - Remember Who You Are. The new album marks the return of producer Ross Robinson, who worked with Korn on their first two releases, Korn and Life is Peachy. Lead vocalist Jonathan Davis has said that the new material matches the pure raw emotion of Korn's early releases while the current touring band has never been tighter. "It's the perfect mix," says Davis, "and Mayhem is the perfect place to set it off. We can't wait for the fans to hear it!"
Rob Zombie is gearing up for the February 2nd release of his Roadrunner / Loud & Proud debut Hellbilly Deluxe 2. Over the course of the past 18 years, Zombie has sold more than 15 million records as a solo artist and with his former band, White Zombie. Says Zombie, "It's been over a decade since my last tour with Korn, so this pairing is long overdue. Mayhem will be one amazingly destructive way to spend the summer. "
