Mushroomhead have announced a special one-night-only premiere event for their new DVD “Volume III” (out August 17). It will be held on August 15 at the Cedar Lee Theatre in Cleveland Heights, Ohio and tickets are available for purchase HERE. Steve “Skinny” Felton commented:

“Members of our team originally wanted us to do this premiere in L.A. or New York, but Cleveland is our hometown and we want to represent! Our local fans are the people who made us who we are today, and this is a once-in-a-lifetime event. I’m excited to see how ‘Volume III’ translates to the big screen… we’ve never done this before, so it’s an entirely new version stage fright, ha! Good thing Cedar Lee has a bar!”

That event will be followed by a DVD signing at The Exchange in Parma Heights, Ohio on August 16 at 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. Fans will need to purchase a DVD to get autographs and photos.

Mushroomhead Premiere “We Are The Truth” Video

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.”

Guitarist Tommy Church has announced his departure from Mushroomhead. This news comes after it was previously revealed that co-founding lead vocalist Jeffrey Nothing was leaving the group as well.

Church commented:

“It is with a heavy heart tonight I announce that I have left Mushroomhead. I will miss all the crazy, loyal and most amazing fans and family I have made over the years and you will always have a special place in my heart. I wish Mushroomhead well in turning the page to this new chapter of life. It was an amazing adventure!”

Mushroomhead are planning to continue with their upcoming tour, and have even posted a teaser for Jeffrey Nothing’s replacement.
