Mushroomhead DVD Scheduled To Be Released, New Album To Be Recorded, Tour Dates Posted

It took almost three years to arrive, but the new Mushroomhead DVD is almost here. The band will release “Volume 2,” the follow-up to 2005’s “Volume 1,” on October 28 on Filthy hands/Megaforce Records.

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.

“Most bands release DVDs that don’t have anything but live or backstage footage,” says sampler Stitch. “Keeping the spirit of the old Pantera home videos, we always try to have more of the behind the scenes antics and drama that shows the human side of Mushroomhead and what goes on when we are not onstage. Everything about this home video is personal and we filmed and edited all of the content. If you own Volume 1 then Volume 2 will blow your f—ing mind.”

To support the DVD, Mushroomhead will hit the road with The Autumn Offering, XFactor1 and Human Factors Lab. Dates start October 3 in Findlay, Ohio and run through November 2 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After the tour, Mushroomhead will return to the studio to start recording their next album. The disc is scheduled for release in spring 2009.

After about a month in the studio, Mushroomhead will take a break to head out on tour with Brujeria, the ramshackle death metal band reputed to be composed of Mexican outlaws and murderers, but which is actually an underground supergroup that reportedly includes Carcass bassist Jeff Walker, Napalm death bassist Shane Embury (on guitar), Witchery guitarist Patrik Jensen and At the Gates drummer Adrian Erlandsson. Those dates kick off November 29 in Los Angeles and run through December 7 in Fort Worth, Texas.

My band A Prayers Emptiness played with mushroomhead! HAHA!!! It was fun. Nu metal is poop but it's dead. Just like straight up Hardcore. Hatebreed is to hardcore as Mushroomhead is to Nu metal. The originators are going to milk the teet as long as they can

Mushroomhead is NOT nu-metal. That is all I need to say about that. Mushroomhead has never had turntables. Slipknot has turntables...Mushroomhead uses a sampler and keyboards.
They had JMANN - he is awesome - who would flow/rap brutally throughout tracks..but JMann is no longer with the band. I have seen the band twice already, and they kick A$$ on stage, and they are cool guys. I wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors. Never Let it Go~

Mushroomhead member JMann was in a band called State of Conviction - which is Cleveland hardcore. They are great. JMann, Gravy, and Skinny are also in band called 216, and it is hardcore metal. Therefore, Mushroomhead has hardcore influences, in my opinion. J Mann is fukkin' awesome!

What the hell are you talking about you old turd? what am I pretending to pose as exactly? I had to wikipedia that crappy a$$ band cause they were established 8 years before I was even born. If that's your standard for music then you suck at life twatbag. Txmetalhead, thanks for responding rationally. Jeez. I didn't realize in order for a metal band to be nu then they required turntables. I hadn't a clue. I'm not going to pretend to know everything about music and I thank you for enlightening me on that well......"special" genre. Did you see mushroomhead when they played at warehouse live this year?

Jason popson (J MANN) is a god in metal music. He is also in Pitch Black Forecast as well as State of Conviction and (216). He's also in a few others and operates fractured transmitter recording company but that hasnt really done much at all. Mushroomhead is my GOD and i am seeing them on october9th again.

I am a devoted mushroomhead fan and have been with them from the beggining. However i think that they are becoming more about producing generic commercial crap then quality music. I fear that this new album will bring the closer to a slipknot like album in order to increase popularity and make more money. Now i dont like slipknot because of their past actions, and i hate the path mushroomhead has taken.

Drewbacca - If you don't know who either Minor Threat or Black Flag are, then officially you aren't allowed to use the word hardcore. I mean... seriously.

And what? Turntables, sampler who cares - they rap, they're slipknots doppleganger, they play watered down metal, they're nu-metal.

Black Flag, Minor Threat, Teen Idles. Then the Youth Crew bands like Gorilla Biscuts, Youth of Today, 7 Seconds, Sick of it All, Agnostic Front pfffft tons of bands were crying the hardcore flag before Hatebreed ever came into the picture. Last I checked they were not around in the early 80's?
I always considered Mushroom Head nu-metal. With the rapping and all.

To Cynic - I emphatically disagree..but you aren't going to change your opinion - so it is like arguing with a wall. To each his own. To Drewbacca - I have seen Mushroomhead twice - both in San Antonio, Tx...I still think it is cool that they came to play 2 shows in S.A. I saw Mushroomhead at the White Rabbit where I met Gravy, Stitch, Waylon, Jeffrey Nothing, and Skinny. I saw the Head again later at Rock Bottom Bar...it was great! Gravy is a real down to earth-guy. Skinny, Waylon and Nothing were very cool, as well. WTF??? Mushroomhead HAD rapping in its early days...they don't RAP anymore because Waylon simply cannot compare to J Mann. Who cares, I am psyched to see/hear the new DVD and I hope their is more footage of J Mann. I do respect Black Flag, and think Henry Rollins is a great guy who really understands music and the fans of music.

If my memory servers, Mushroomhead started as a side project in 95, and Slipknkot didn't form until 96-97, so calling them slipknots doppleganger is not only ridiculous, but just plain ignorant.
They released 2 full length albums before the first Slipknot Ep came out.

A couple other Popson side projects include Rape Whistle, AM Factory, (216), The Alter Boys, Unified Culture, and Lost Vegas just to name a few.

I like Mushroom Head. Always have and always will. I find it interesting how it has become taboo to like certian genres of music. If a rock/metal band sounds good to me, then why is it wrong to like them based on genre? Call these guys whatever you want to call them or any other band for that matter. If it sounds good then I like it. If it does'nt then it does'nt. I refuse to base my opinions of a band on the genre they belong to. Instead I'll base it on the creativity and talent of the band. If we spent less time bashing genres that are not popular anymore then more bands would play what they are good at instead of trying to be something they are not.

To clear things up, calling them nu-metal wasn't intended to be derisive. I own a copy of XX, and I remember wishing the review that I based the purchase on had spent less time talking pretentiously about amalgamation of genres and likeness to Tool, and more about their nu-metal tendencies.

Secondly, doppleganger to my knowledge doesn't include who came first, although since the word has an air of "copying" perhaps it was the wrong word of choice.

Whatever you think of Black Flag, they came first. Jamey Jasta should f*** off if he thinks anything about his band is hardcore. They remind me of the jock d***s that used to sexually assault the homecoming queen at the afterparty. Slogans, slogans, and more slogans is what Hatebreed is. And just because your dumb a$$ had to wikipedia Black-f***ing-Flag doesn't mean that I'm wrong for YOU being an idiot. This is your history, man, f*** slipknot.

<;---Huge Mushroomhead fan! Yes, Mushroomhead, it seems, will always be the band that everyone loves to hate...which is fine. They are still running on all cylinders, and look forward to seeing the new DVD, and was shocked to hear that they have ideas for another album next year. This is fabulous news. I like Slipknot, as well, but I like Mushroomhead a great deal more.

I don't even know why I said that. I'll think before I type next time. You people knew what I was saying though. Are those bands even around anymore? Black Flag, Minor Threat, Teen Idles, Youth of Today, 7 Seconds, Sick of it All, and Agnostic Front? I've heard the last two and believe they're still doing their thing but to be honest I don't care for straight up hardcore that much. If that's what they are, don't grill me for that please. Haha! I like the hybrid genres, like Veil of maya, Born of Osiris, Beneath the massacre, After the Burial and anything related. But I do know what a breakdown sounds like so I can say the word hardcore if you don't mind.

Oh and I guess I said Hatebreed cause they maybe kind of originated Modern Hardcore. I don't know just what I thought. Probably wrong about that too though.

Black Flag and Minor Threat aren't around anymore, but that's kinda besides the point. What you said about Hatebreed starting hardcore is like if someone said that Green Day started punk rock. They may have made it more palatable and radio-friendly and watered-down, but they sure as hell didn't start it.

Refused's idea of hardcore got stomped into dust by the fringe brigade. Bullsh** at Hatebreed starting modern Hardcore. Terror came out around the same time I think. Hatebreed's sound is along the same lines as Sick of it All. And I'd say that they set the stage for the modern core sound.

Al-f***in-right! Somebody who I actually want to hear their opinion on the new metallica songs.

I heard the new ones, I have my own opinions, but Crawford, if you could I would like to know what someone besides myself thinks. For the most part I like it though.

And for the record, I don't even listen to hardore music, but i still get insulted whenever someone calls Hatebreed good hardcore. Let's try and NOT say something stupid like that, Shall we?

dude, I think the new metallica is awesome. It's the best we're going to get from them at their age, so we should be overjoyed that they pulled it out and were able to make such a killer album. Rick Rubin may not be too deserving of credit, though. The new album, while maintaining a newer tone to the distortion still has a lot of classic metallica attitude. Especially in All Nightmare Long where he says "But cha luck runs out-tah!" The only track I don't really like is the instrumental. I think everything else is spot-on. It took me a week, seeing as I had to force myself to listen to it over and over, and maybe that's why I like it, but I know this much, it's sure as hell better than Breaking f***ing Benjamin or the motherf***ing Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. Or the Killers Or Coldplay. or Kid Rock or Nelly Furtado or Akon featuring T-Pain. I'll be listening to Death Magnetic for a long time to come. I've even thrown it into my metallica playlist to randomize around all the other Metallica classics.

As for Mushroomhead, Savior Sorrow wasn't that sweet, but XX, and XIII, goddamn! XIII mainly. But XX was okay, too.

From my understanding - maybe this was already said - but Hatebreed is Post-Hardcore, correct? Hatebreed is not pure hardcore, but has hard core elements. I still love listening to Sick of It All. I have a few of their albums. Agnostic Front is pretty good too. I like Black Flag because of Rollins.
