Hey Mayhem- so far the tours eco initiative has been a success, but we still need your help! Come out and help our eco team recycle during the show to receive a free ticket. Email email@example.com with the date and venue if the show you'd like to volunteer for!
Pittsburgh was by far one of the craziest shows on the tour so far. There were a ton of people there and they were all fucking raging for every single band playing at the show. Eddie from All Shall Perish stops by to walk around the crowd for a little while, and we meet up with some really hardcore and insane metal fans!
Holmdel is always like a little family reunion for us. Our friends from Revolver and Roadrunner all come out. We met up with Matt from the Mayhem Eco Initiative, Jamey Jasta, and John gives us a tour of the Production Office in Holmdel.
The 2011 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival rolls into First Niagara Pavilion this Friday and we hope you're ready for madness that will ensue.

103.3 The Edge came out with a few of us to Darien Lake for some heavy metal. Before the show a few of us headed over to the theme park next door. We caught up with Dave from Machine Head briefly before riding one of the coasters. The big surprise was Megadeth stopping by to play the show as well.
If you have some killer tattoo work or tattoos that are specific to bands on the fest, Rebel Ink Magazine wants YOU to appear in their upcoming Mayhem Fest special! Simply collect outside of the Jagermeister Tent at 3pm and 6pm tomorrow, and Rebel Ink personnel will judge your tattoos and choose you to possibly appear in the magazine if selected!
Hartford, CT always throws down when we hit it in the summer. Kingdom of Sorrow was killing it on the Jager Stage, a few of our buddies from last summer were at the show, and the fans were crazy as usual. Rita from Dimebag Hardware checks in, and we caught up with a few crazy fans as well.
Tomorrow we are coming to heat up 103.3 The Edge's Summer BBQ! Doors are at 5pm and the show kicks off at 6pm. Head over to the Event Page for more info and, as always, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Myspace.
We can say this with complete certainty that every time we play in Canada we have a blast! Heavy MTL 2011 was pure madness. There were a ton of people there, the pits were crazy, and every single person at the show was into it! The fans up north are just as hardcore as anywhere else.
Day 10 of Mayhem brings us to Mansfield, MA; both Godsmack and Unearth's howmtown shows. The fans really brought some craziness and the pits were huge. We met up with Jack for some Mayhem home cooking with Jagermeister. Today was also Trivium's first show opening the Main Stage and Machine Head headlining the Revolver Stage. The greater Boston area showed us that they are still one of the most metal cities on the planet!
We're coming up north again for Heavy MTL 2011 and this year is going to be pure insanity. Head on over to heavymtl.com for ticket info. Doors for Saturday are at 12pm so be sure to get their early to secure a spot close to the stages!
Cincinnati turned out to be a killer show. First off, it was both Robb Flynn from Machine Head and our producer of the tour John Reese's birthdays. It rained really hard but not as much as it did last year when we came around. Riverbend Music Center is always a fun place to play, and just hang out. The side stage bands get to play in their own separate amphitheater, the river sits right next to the venue, and there's a ton of cool stuff around.
