Mushroomhead Premiere “We Are The Truth” Video

Mushroomhead have shared a new video for an alternate version of “We Are The Truth“ off their 2014 album “The Righteous & the Butterfly.” The track features Jackie LaPonza (UnSaid Fate) and the clip will appear on the band’s new DVD “Volume III“ (out August 17). Drummer Steve “Skinny” Felton commented:

“As you can imagine, the entire Mushroomhead camp is heavily into Horror films. So, we decided to do an ‘Evil Dead‘ tribute. Dr. F, Stitch and myself were responsible for all set designs. I think the end result is very creepy and a lot of fun.”

Mushroomhead To Release New DVD “Volume III” In August

Mushroomhead Perform First Show With New Singer & Guitarist

On March 17, Mushroomhead played their first show with their new lineup at Music Lynxx in Mentor-on-the-Lake, Ohio. The group now feature vocalist Steve Rauckhorst (Pitch Black Forecast), who is taking over for Jeffrey Nothing, and guitarist Tommy “Tankx” Shaffner (VentanA), who is taking over for Tommy Church.

Turntablist Richard “Stitch” Thomas commented on the lineup change:

“I know a lot of you are angry and confused on the latest news, but this is not news to us. We were made aware that Jeff and Church were leaving and a plan was in motion to make a proper transition. They both decided to let the cat out of the bag on Facebook before a proper press release was made. This was not part of the plan discussed.

I’m not going to explain or air out the bands personal business and I’m not going to engage in any smearing of the two members that have recently departed.

I have been a Mushroomhead fan since 1994 and am honored to be a member of this band the last 17 years.

None of you know what happens behind the scenes or how people’s personalities and involvement in the band changes as years go on. Your assumptions and negative comments are quite disheartening, this is why I truly hate this social media era — everyone gets to judge you before you even have a chance to figure out what to say.

If I learned anything, it’s that Mushroomhead lives on no matter what and that is what we are doing right now.

If there is ever a day that I step down, it will still continue without me. The replacements for both members have been in place for quite awile, the new singer was even endorsed by Mr. Nothing over a month ago.

Both of these gentlemen are longtime friends of mine, they are talented musicians and have been in the mosh pits at Mushroomhead concerts since 1996. They are huge fans of the band and are going to breathe new life into Mushroomhead, carrying on its legacy into the next chapter. I’m very excited to be sharing the stage with them moving into the future.”
