Sunn O))), Immortal, and Converge Added to 2014 Gathering of the Juggalos
And you thought Cannibal Corpse being a part of this year’s Gathering of the Juggalos caused an uproar: according to The Wall Street Journal, the Insane Clown Posse-created festival has just added three more insanely heavy acts not usually associated with this kind of thing… specifically, Converge, Immortal, and Sunn O))). Furthermore, the festival has announced that Profound Lore, one of the most respected metal labels out there today, has come onboard as a corporate sponsor.
Neither the artists nor Profound Lore have released any statement regarding their sure-to-be-controversial decision, but a source close to the festival’s curators has told MetalSucks that the move is “part of ICP’s effort to change their image… they’re tired of not being taken seriously, and they think associating with tr00 bands will get everyone on their side.”
Did it work? Would you brave a sea of Juggalos to attend a festival that includes these bands… or is it still not enough? Weigh in with your opinions in the comments section below!
