Mushroomhead to Headline Inaugural ‘Summer of Screams’ Tour
After teasing hard music lovers for a few weeks, the creators of the brand new "Summer of Screams" tour have revealed this year's headliner. Mushroomhead will head up the inaugural run of the tour, joining a wealth of other acts.
Powerman 5000 will play select dates on the tour, signing on for the latter part of the run from Sept. 2-15. Psychostick are also on board, playing Aug. 17-31. Meanwhile, Voodoo Terror Tribe and Earth Caller will split time in the opening spot. Voodoo Terror Tribe are on board Aug. 17-30, with Earth Caller taking over the opening slot on Aug. 31 and continuing through Sept. 15. Other acts participating in the full tour include The Browning, Kissing Candice and Unsaid Fate.
Scream Factory and Dread Central are putting on the trek, which will find the package tour playing 25 dates across North America. Tickets for the run will go on sale this Wednesday (June 6) at 12N ET. See all of the scheduled dates below and keep up to date with tour info at this location.
Mushroomhead recently underwent a pair of lineup changes with co-vocalist Jeffrey Nothing and guitarist Tommy Church leaving the band. Steve Rauckhorst has joined as a clean vocalist, while Tommy "Tankx" Shaffner has filled the void on guitar.
