Mayhem Fest 2012 adds Motorhead, Sumerian stage

Monday, March 05, 2012 7:42 AM PT

Two notable developments have taken place relative to the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.

For starters, festival organizers have now confirmed the addition of Motorhead to the lineup. Frontman Lemmy Kilmister commented, "Well, we're used to mayhem in this band, so it's kind of a family tradition! Bring it!"

Motorhead joins fellow main stage acts Slipknot and Slayer, in addition to handful of other performers.

Meanwhile, this year's Mayhem Festival will also feature the Sumerian Records Stage. Specifically, Sumerian will be bringing Upon A Burning Body, I The Breather, and one more act (to be announced) along for the ride. Additionally, organizers will be holding contests all over the U.S. for unsigned bands to win opening spots on the Sumerian Records Stage at the festival.

The full lineup, dates, and venues for the festival can be found here.

So now there will be 50 kids more to the tour. The other band is betraying the martyrs, since they're touring with uabb and itb already.

I'm glad Sumerian is having their own stage, that way I can watch Motorhead, Slayer, and Anthrax while all the annoying scene kids will be distracted by Ash Avildsen's carnival of mediocrity. Now all Mayhem needs is a Tapout stage in order to distract all the jocks and rednecks

3/5/2012 7:50:25 PM
The jocks and rednecks will be listening to Slayer, Anthrax, and Motorhead. gay.

3/5/2012 7:56:14 PM
^ Most likely, yes. But who is this "gay" band? Never heard of them, is that your band or are you just a fan?
