Blue Ridge Rock Festival shared that Taproot will reunite to play next year's festival. The event will be the band's first major appearance since 2013.

ARTIST ANNOUNCEMENT #1: Taproot (Reunion)
We are stoked to announce that TAPROOT will be reuniting at Blue Ridge Rock Festival 2023! The Nu-Metal outfit has not toured since 2013, but will return to the Stage for 1 Night Only at Blue Ridge 2023. Taproot first broke out in the early 2000s with Gold-certified records "Gift" and "Welcome", as well as back to back Ozzfest Tours.
This is the first of several reunions and special performances already on-tap in our 2023 Lineup. Aside from all of the artists you have voted for, we are working hard to deliver you reunions and album plays that you would not normally have the chance to experience. Have a reunion or album set idea? Let us know in the Comments!

Damn, that bass is the most late-'90s/early-'00s "serious heavy musician" bass around, lol.
All window tinting businesses in a 250 mile radius will be closed for this.
Lambgoat and theprp are neck and neck with posting about washed up nu metal acts
STILL BETTER THAN TURNSTILE
Posers with gynecomastia are stoked.
I remember seeing Taproot headline. It was with Nonpoint, who was touring for their first album, and Drowning Pool, whose singer hadn't died yet. Fun show.
Why the f*ck do you guys post nu metal news?
anonymous 7 minutes ago I remember seeing Taproot headline. It was with Nonpoint, who was touring for their first album, and Drowning Pool, whose singer hadn't died yet. Fun show. this sounds like an ozzfest 2001 off date... i think i saw the same show elsewhere. 2 weeks later that guy died.
Just a good, thickly veined taproot for all to enjoy.
Ah, reminds me of the time I saw Static X right before Wayne died...
Looks like the general manager is gonna have to make the schedules now that these boys are hittin the stage.
I have nothing negative to say.
if you rearrange the letters in taproot, you get Toot Rap
COVID killed my grandma but not these assholes.
^Survival of the fittest.
Butt Rock glory
In 1998, Taproot sent their demo to Fred Durst after seeing a request for demos on Limp Bizkit's first album. Impressed with the material, Durst offered to get Taproot a recording contract through Interscope Records. However, after extended negotiations, Taproot decided to look elsewhere and finally landed a record deal with Atlantic Records. Durst heavily cursed the band on vocalist Stephen Richards' answering machine.
Taproot is better than 98% of the new horseshit posted on ghey5six youtube channel.

This fest is a dumpster-Furnace Fest
Lurk and Dylan are the two biggest dorks in the world.
Yo! Yo! Yo! Johnny Nobody here! We were gonna open up for Toproot in our home turf of Orlando, but the promoter said our music was too real for the masses. He also said my buggy, black eyes would terrify children. Ya feel me??? Suburban Noize records comin' at you in 2022! Whoop! Whoop!
