Tour de Force

HIGH ON FIRE ARE ON THE 2012 ROCKSTAR MAYHEM FEST TOO!

720

Have you had enough summer tour-related excitement for one day yet? No? Well, hot on the heels of this afternoon’s official announcement that Slipknot, Slayer, Motorhead, Anthrax, As I Lay Dying, Whitechapel and two other bands no MS readers will care about will all be playing the 2012 Rockstar Mayhem Festival, Slipknot just posted some kind of flyer/poster on their Facebook page that includes one more awesome band: High on Fire!

High on Fire are about due for a new album (their last was 2010’s Snakes for the Divine), so the timing for a blockbuster summer tour would make sense. Have those guys really taken it to the next level over the past few years, or what? Great gig for High on Fire — their presence on the fest gives us olds one more reason to attend, and they’ll undoubtedly pick up tons of new fans along the way.

Get the full list of tour dates here. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 6th.
