Hedpe and Mushroomhead Team Up For Summer Tour

The leaders of The Truth Movement, (Hed)pe and Cleveland’s pioneering masked madmen Mushroomhead are planning to hit the road this summer on a co-headlining tour sponsored by Jagermeister. Both bands are notorious for their energetic live performances and commanding stage presence that is sure to make this one of the summer’s hottest tours.

“It will be nice to tour with Mushroomhead for the summer. I’ve always admired how they have stayed hardcore and underground,” says (Hed)pe frontman Jahred. “We finally found a band that isn’t afraid to tour with us. Our live show is so high energy that a lot of the time bands won’t want to go out on tour with us, because they would have to follow our set. Mushroomhead put on an amazing live show and can go toe-to-toe with anyone. This tour is going to give fans the best bang for their buck this summer.”

“We definitely admire what Hed(pe) has accomplished and that they have kept active in the scene over the years much like ourselves. It has been awhile since we co-headlined with another band and we are very excited to see what will come of this tour,” states ST1TCH of Mushroomhead

With their seventh studio album “New World Orphans”, (Hed)pe sent the youth of America a call to arms. The album, which mixes heavy thrash riffs with punk-rock and hip-hop beats, is more than new music; it shows the band exposing the corruption and the web of lies that are being force fed to the American youth. After a series of releases with major labels that stifled the band’s creativity, (Hed)pe has been embraced by an underground movement that celebrates the musical melting pot that their music exemplifies. The group’s video for their new single “Renegade” is available online at http://www.youtube.com/hedpetv
Mushroomhead are currently completing work on their 7th album at their Filthy Hands Recording facility in Cleveland, Ohio which is due out winter 2010 via Megaforce/Sony Music. Produced by co-founding member and drummer Steve “Skinny” Felton, the yet-to-be-titled new album is promised to be the bands most vicious and ambitious sound to date! The band is also gearing up to take their hardcore vaudeville act on the road and will embark on a short run of dates on the Mayhem Tour alongside Marilyn Manson, Slayer and Killswitch Engage at the end of July and will then launch this summer tour with (Hed)pe which includes a stop at “The Rock The Ink Festival”. The band recently released their “Vol. 2” DVD last year which debut at #7 in Billboard’s “Top Music Videos” chart.
