Mushroomhead Set To Release New Album
September 25, 2010
Cleveland, OH art-metal collective Mushroomhead has finished work on its new video for the first single "Come On." The clip - taken from the band's forthcoming release 'Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children' - was directed by "House" of Precinct 13 and features "fight club" type scenes and bloody combat shot with stylish cinematography. House previously directed the band's 2007 video for "1200", which netted the band MTV Headbangers Ball "Video of the Year."

"Conceptually, it's about having the opportunity to vent your rage," says Mushroomhead's Skinny. "The song 'Come On' is a sucker punch and it's a metaphor for everything that's gone wrong. It's a modern day anthem for everyone who is fed up with everything, just like us." A teaser clip for the "Come On" video is available for viewing below.

Mushroomhead
recently premiered "Come On" -- via Guitar World. Check out the song now at this location. Additionally, 30 second preview clips of each song from 'Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children' can be heard now at this location.

Crossbreed Post Vlog Featuring Members of Mushroomhead
September 18, 2009
Florida industrial metal act, Crossbreed, have released a new video blog featuring members of Mushroomhead discussing Crossbreed’s new album 'KE 101' online. Check it out below. The guys in Mushroomhead were kind enough to sarcastically destroy the new Crossbreed disc on camera for fans, while also promoting it, during a recent tour stop with Hedpe.

Crossbreed
keyboardist Ian Hall says, “In the most loving way possible, we love to hate each other”, regarding the Mushroomhead’s review of Crossbreed’s 'KE101'.

Crossbreed’s
new album 'KE 101' was released through Driven Music Group, the independent label founded by former Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch. The group’s new album takes the slamming amalgamation of techno pulses, trademark grinding guitars Crossbreed is known for, and melds them together with infectious vocal hooks.

Crossbreed
burst into the spotlight when they dropped their debut album, 'Synthetic Division', in 2001 and took to the road with the likes of German industrial metal act Rammstein, and theatrical metal powerhouse Mushroomhead, along with countless others. 'Synthetic Division' would go on to sell over 50,000 copies in the United States while the band continued to tour across the country.

After releasing NSN in 2005 independently, Crossbreed’s 'KE101' will be the group’s first album to see a worldwide release, with a European release planned for October.

“This album is more melodic, and yet, more brutal than any prior. Our sound finally matches our stage show,” says frontman James Breed.

Crossbreed
has scheduled a series of warm up dates in September before embarking on a full scale US tour later this year.

Crossbreed Tour Dates:
9/26 - Saint Petersburg, FL @ State Theatre (w/ Deadstar Assembly)
9/27 - Orlando, FL @ House of Blues - FREE SHOW

(Hed)pe Shoots Video For 'Here And Now'
August 21, 2009
(Hed)pe have announced they will shoot a video for their new single “Here And Now” with director Dale Resteghini of Raging Nation Films (Mudvayne, Trivium). The video is expected to surface in the coming weeks, while “Here And Now” is now available through iTunes and other digital retailers. The track will also appear on a re-released version of (Hed)pe’s 'New World Orphans' along with brand new cover artwork.

"I am very excited for this new 'Here and Now' video. The director came with a really cool idea. We are going to film it in New York City and have me playing an 'End of The World' homeless type of guy preaching on a soapbox," commented Jared from (Hed)pe. "That gives me a chance to get in some imagery of what I actually believe we are in the middle of. I hope we can convey that message, that this is not the end of the world but actually the beginning of the Golden Age. I know our people will enjoy this video and we can't wait to share it with our fans."

For years (Hed)pe has pushed the boundaries of free speech and socially acceptable content, but with their seventh studio album, 'New World Orphans', the band has finally found its purpose. The group's new album exposes the corruption and the web of lies that are being force fed to the American youth and finds (Hed)pe leading the charge as the leaders of The Truth Movement.

'New World Orphans' was initially released with 3 different covers, with each version containing exclusive bonus tracks. New pressings will now be replaced by the re-released version of the album which features one standard cover and the bonus track “Here And Now”.

“We originally released our new album with three different covers, but we’ve now decided to make those collector’s editions for the hardcore fans that bought our album first and helped us spread the Truth Movement to the masses,” added Jared. “We’ve now stopped production on those three covers and replaced all new pressings with one cover and added the song ‘Here And Now’ to the record. If anyone wants the bonus tracks contained on those earlier three versions you better find copies now before they become extinct!”

(Hed)pe is currently co-headlining the “Hed to Head” Tour with Cleveland's pioneering masked madmen Mushroomhead, Straight Line Stitch and Supe. Dates are as follow:

8/21 - Clifton Park, NY @ Northern Lights
8/22 - Providence, RI @ Rhode Island Convention Center
8/23 - Poughkeepsie, NY @ The Chance
8/25 - Rochester, NY @ Water Street Music Hall
8/26 - Pittsburgh, PA @ Diesel
8/27 - Columbus, OH @ Al Rosa
8/28 - Eat Sparta, OH @ Creekfest 2009
8/29 - Detroit, MI @ Harpos
8/31 - Maplewood, MN @ The Rock
9/01 - Fargo, ND @ The Venue
9/03 - Lawrence, KS @ Granada Theatre
9/04 - Dallas, TX @ The Door
9/05 - Houston, TC @ Meridan
9/12 - Fayetteville, NC @ Jesters Pub
9/13 - Jacksonville, NC @ Hooligans
9/16 - Knoxville, TN @ Valarium
9/17 - Atlanta, GA @ Masquerade
9/18 - Jacksonville, FL @ Jack Rabbits
9/19 - Fort Myers, FL @ The Spot
9/20 - Tallahassee, FL @ Floyd's Music Sto

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 1993
HOME TOWN: Cleveland, OH
MEMBERS:
Waylon (vocals)
Jeffrey Nothing (vocals)
Skinny (drums)
Shmotz (keyboards)
Pig Benis (bass)
Gravy (guitar)
Bronson (guitar)
Stitch (samples)

Early 2003. Cleveland, Ohio: The ultimate in all-terrain vehicles--a rental van--screams out of the parking lot of Mars Studio where Mushroomhead has been tracking for 32 consecutive 14-hour days. The passengers: three dark figures known only as Skinny, Bronson and Stitch. The freight: the band's personal Pro-Tools recording rig loaded with new tracks. The object: to beat the clock and drive to Los Angeles in nothing flat--or sooner--for mixdown sessions with Matt Wallace (Faith No More, Deftones).Skinny's leather-clad fingers grip the wheel. His jackbooted foot smashes the gas pedal to the floor as it would his kick-drum beater. The necessary stimulants--rough mixes of Mushroomhead's latest and greatest albumcrank from a boombox strapped to the backseat. The disc is titled XIII, partly in reference to the only sort of luck the band has known during its ten-year career. Hard. But with fuel like this, they might truly make it this time.The van careens cross-country, having its way with America's fruited plains, purple mountains majesty and nuclear-tested deserts at an average speed of 95 miles per hour. Time is indeed that short. But eventually the trio piles out of the hissing van and into the smog-filtered sun stabs of Los Angeles, California.Miles traversed: 2404. Time elapsed: 35 hours. Mission: Accomplished. This is not a video game. This is not a post-apocalyptic action movie. This is not a military maneuver. This is, simply, a day and a half in the life of Mushroomhead. And they're lucky to be alive.The latest soundtrack to that life--XIII--fully reflects that wild urgency and range for the first time in Mushroomhead's career. The mostly self-produced album features more... everything... in all directions. Punishing songs like "Kill Tomorrow" find the octet at their relentless riff-laden best. Mid-tempo cuts like "Sun Doesn't Shine," one of two tracks produced by Johnny K. (Disturbed), highlight the band's tough melodic sense. And dramatic tunes like "Nowhere To Go" showcase their mood-conjuring magic. "We really pushed the envelope this time," says Skinny. "Everyone was really focused and anxious to show what we can really do. Our only criteria was that the songs had to fucking rock. They had to be songs that we could go out and perform for the next three years and still love to play every single night."Lyrically, vocalists J Mann and Jeffrey Nothing achieve catharsis exploring familiar nihilistic terrain perhaps best summed up by song titles like "Destroy The World Around Me." To their credit, though, they never resort to cheap shock tactics for effect. Exhibit A: there's not one expletive on the entire album. "That speaks volumes about our singers' abilities," says Skinny. "They can convey these really dark images and powerful ideas without making things seem overly literal or too abrasive. We don't want to spell everything out for people. You have to let listeners apply the music to their lives as they need to apply it."And more people are likely to do that this time. Mushroomhead have always been outsiders pursuing their own unique vision. But perhaps the increasingly dark world at large is finally ready to catch up with the band. Listeners who've previously judged the band based on its theatrical stage show and over-the-top appearance are advised to leave preconceptions at the door. "I think this album will slap people across the face," says Skinny. "Our main goal was to make every song like an artwork you can hang on your wall and never get tired of looking at. I think people are going to be very surprised."
