Latest Mushroomhead News
Below is our complete Mushroomhead news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
It's a review-o-rama this week on the Metalunderground.com Official Podcast! Your co-hosts Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) and Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) treat you to a whirlwind of reactions to three very different new metal releases - but not before Kevin reminds you of our ticket giveaway for DevilDriver at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, June 18th. Interested Florida residents should tune in for details.
First order of review business: the self-titled debut of eclectic supergroup Killer Be Killed, featuring Max Cavalera (Soulfly), Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan), Troy Sanders (Mastodon), and Dave Elitch (ex-The Mars Volta). This review is mainly Kevin's bag, with a few cents from Mike on some of the distressing "metal hipster" comments on YouTube.
Next, Mike takes over to rave about Arch Enemy's hotly anticipated tenth studio album "War Eternal," the first to feature new guitarist Nick Cordle (ex-Arsis) of Charlottesville, Virginia fame (Mike's proud hometown) and vocalist Alissa White-Gluz (ex-The Agonist) of Montreal, Quebec. As far as Mike is concerned, this is some of the band's strongest material since the classic "Wages Of Sin"  and is a must-buy release of 2014.
Finally, with heavy hearts, Kevin and Mike tackle the unpleasant burden of dissecting the new Mushroomhead album "The Righteous & The Butterfly," which both confirmed fans sadly agree constitutes the band's weakest material to date - a major letdown after a four-year wait and the hyped return of beloved vocalist Jason "J-Mann" Popson. However, they do their best to look on the bright side, though it is admittedly a struggle.
Tune in here, enjoy, and don't hesitate to offer us your feedback.

Yesterday it was announced that former vocalist Jason Popson had re-joined Mushroomhead, which led to questions of just how many vocalists are in the band and if anyone had left.
Mushroomhead's Waylon Reavis has posted the following brief message online clarifying the situation:
"Just so everyone is clear on this..... Mushroomhead now has 3 singers Jeffery Nothing, JMANN, and myself. I have no intention on leaving the band. Also don't worry on how it will work it just does!"
The band will also be touring the U.S. throughout September and October. Dates can be found at the band's Facebook profile here.
Update: Waylon has since released a statement that he is still in Mushroomhead and no one has left the band. Check it out right here.
Mushroomhead has been re-joined by former vocalist Jason Popson, who stated on a brief message online: "Old school, new school, this is the WHOLE school. Mushroomhead, buckle up kids, I'm back!"

Talk around rival bands Mushroomhead and Slipknot touring together is heating up. During a Q&A on a recent show of "An Evening with Corey Taylor," Corey was asked about the possibility of doing a tour with Mushroomhead, surprisingly Taylor answered with a "maybe" bringing some boos until he explained:
"My problem has never been with that band, at the time my problem was with his fans. The first time we played Cleveland fans came down, did not say shit and his f...ans down and threw stones against us. They beat Paul in the face with a padlock the size of my fist; This while we were on stage. When we finished playing, we took all our shit and went to the hearing. There were plenty of them, but we were all nine of us, was Machine Head and all our friends for a group called Amen. - Say you just take care of the damn thing right there. "
Corey explained on the proposed tour with Mushroomhead:
"I would welcome. I love to do something well, you know. Especially now. I think it would be nice to ride something together and see that shit happens. Slipknot, Mushroomhead, GWAR and Mudvayne's cursed. Because if one thing I learned is that do not cling to a stupid shit, let it go. "
On the other hand, Mushroomhead has also seen the good side of this, published in their official Facebook message:
"Jeffrey Nothing (vocals) ... Honestly, I think Paul would have wanted this to happen and JJ (John Sekula, guitarist Mushroomhead who died in October 2010) as well. Seriously, let's do this 'thing' becomes a reality, join the group!"
As a sign that the bands' relationship is on the mend, a show has been announced featuring members from both bands and their side projects. Here are the details:
Tuesday, April 17th Peabody's in Cleveland, OH
#0 Sid Wilson from Slipknot DJ Set
Stitch From Mushroomhead DJ Set
Nothing (Jeffrey Nothing's side project; first Show in North America)
Tenafly Viper (Waylon's Side Project)
Fans are showing their support for the bands coming together to tour via a Facebook page dedicated to the cause. Slipknot's manager reportedly contacted the Mushroomhead camp and said if they can get enough likes on the facebook page, the tour would be a go.
