Mushroomhead announces the DVD release of Volume 2, on October 28, 2008 on Filthy Hands/Megaforce Records. It’s the follow-up to
their 2005 DVD release Volume 1.  The new DVD features what’s
described as “2 ½ hours of pure mayhem” featuring exclusive never before seen
content, live footage from the past three years on their “Savior Sorrow”
tour, music videos including Headbanger’s Ball 2007 Video Of The Year “1200,” “Simple
Survival,” and the band’s brand new video “Save Us.”  Other extras
include video commentary, behind the scenes footage and band antics. 

 

According to
the band, “Volume 2 contains all
the content that fans are hungry for, all the ‘behind the scenes antics and
drama’ that shows the human side of Mushroomhead and what goes on when we are
not on stage.  Everything about this home video is personal, we filmed and
edited all of the content in it as well, over 2 1/2 hours of mayhem and comedy.
If you own Volume 1 then Volume 2 will blow your fucking mind.”

 

The band hits the road this week with The Autumn Offering,
XFactor1 and Human Factors Lab and December dates with Brujeria.  Mushroomhead
will also enter the studio this winter to record the follow-up album to their
2006 release Savior Sorrow.  The new CD is slated for
release spring 2009!

 

 The background:

 

In the spring of
1993 seven musicians from Cleveland,
OH came together to form a side
project called Mushroomhead.  The intentions of this project were to
create an eclectic blend of music, forceful yet melodic alterna-metal
incorporating elements of heavy rock, punk,  goth, and industrial,
yet combined with a vaudevillian stage show.  From the band’s first
concert it was obvious that this was far more than a side project, but would
soon become a pioneering band.  Known for its theatrical live show and the
black masks that most of its members wear on-stage, Mushroomhead is one of the
more unique and adventurous alternative metal outfits to ever emerged on the
scene.
