The organizers of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival are pleased to announce the addition of Motorhead to the 2012 line-up. This marks the first summer tour that Motorhead has taken part in for several years. The legendary metal veterans join the already stellar 2012 main stage line-up, featuring multi-platinum Iowa cult metal groundbreakers Slipknot in the headlining position, as well as legendary thrash metal kings Slayer—both returning to the festival for a second turn at pummeling fans.
Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister commented, "Well, we're used to mayhem in this band, so it's kind of a family tradition! Bring it!"
Motorhead just finished up a run with Megadeth on the 2012 Gigantour. On January 24th, Motorhead Music/UDR released "The Wörld Is Ours-Vol 1 - Everywhere Further Than Everyplace Else," an official DVD containing some of the finest moments from the band’s recent The Wörld is Yours tour, which also includes a special bonus double live CD of the Chile stop. Frontman Lemmy will also be part of a Ronnie James Dio tribute album which will be out later this year.
This year, in addition to Slipknot, Slayer, and Motorhead, the main stage will also spotlight a ferocious rotation of today’s best artists, including The Devil Wears Prada, As I Lay Dying, and Asking Alexandria. The festival will make a 27 date trek across the U.S. beginning on June 30th at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California. Head here for ticketing information.
