Tour de Force

Coal Chamber and Fear Factory Co-Headling Ultimate Meh Tour

0

Having just finished a headlining tour with a number of ‘Eh’ artists like Filter and American Head Charge, Coal Chamber are hitting the road again with Fear Factory to bring the ‘Ah, well’ to the people! Select dates will feature Devil You Know (huh?) and Jasta (buh?), with Saint Ridley and Madlife (who?) filling in the entire tour. Dates are below.

There used to be an era where any metal bands were jammed together on tours, which is how you caught bills featuring Motörhead and Morbid Angel, or Halford with Immortal and Testament. I’d much rather have some incongruous mishmash of bands than this line-up. Every act feels so safe for the Monster Energy Drink crowd. They couldn’t have thrown in a Jungle Rot or Pallbearer to liven it up a little?

Anyway, if all your laundry’s done and you’ve filled out all your time sheets, catch the bands at one of these dates this summer:
