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

Masked metal band Mushroomhead has entered the studio to record their seventh studio album at the Filthy Hands compound in Cleveland, Ohio. The album will be released this summer through Megaforce/Epic Records.
Drummer/producer Steve "Skinny" Felton says: "Hell yeah, let’s go, after producing the last six albums I know what these guys can do and once again they are killing it! The cool thing about working with Mushroomhead is that there is always an idea on the table and someone brings it to the next level. Everytime someone tracks they raise the bar for the rest of the records, Thank God! They call each other out, they play each others parts they even fist fight! Their passion is undeniable and that is what rock & roll is all about! The sound is super dark and creepy and even violent at times."
Keyboardist Shmotz added "The new album is off to a great start and is full of aggression and intensity, although it is tough to be creative and keep a solid drug habit with all of the illegal downloading and file sharing these days!"
Mushroomhead has entered the Billboard DVD Chart at number 7 with their latest visual offering, "Volume 2." The disc features two and a half hours of content, including live footage from the three-year “Savior Sorrow” tour; music videos including “1200,” “Simple Survival” and the brand new video “Save Us”; video commentary and behind the scenes footage. The band has also confirmed that they will be entering the studio in January to record a new studio album, with plans to release it in the Spring.
