Anthrax, Black Label Society, Hatebreed, Etc. Set For 2022 Tattoo The Earth Festival

Tattoo The Earth is set to return as a single day festival. The event will take place at The Palladium in Worcester, MA on August 27 and it will include performances from Anthrax, Black Label Society, Hatebreed, At The Gates, Municipal Waste, Enforced, and more to be announced. On top of that, the festival will also feature a tattoo village hosted by Zaza Ink. Founder Scott Alderman commented:

“When I wrote ‘Caravan of Pain: The True Story of the Tattoo The Earth Tour,’ I never imagined it would bring the show back to life. Doing the show with the original promoter, Mass Concerts, and having Hatebreed on the bill, who were one of the 2000 tour breakout bands, is going to make for an amazing event.”

Anthrax’s Scott Ian commented:

“Zakk [Wylde] has been a friend and an inspiration to me as a guitar player, songwriter, and beard grower since we met in 1988. We’ve had the privilege to share festival stages with Zakk and BLS around the world, and it’s always been a head-banging mutual admiration society between the two bands. Now we get to share the stage every night on what is easily going to be the heaviest tour of 2022 — the ultimate pounding one-two combination of bands. Oh, and did I mention we’ve got fucking Hatebreed with us as our special guests? Holy crap, it’s going to be the night of 1000 crushing riffs. I can’t wait to see you all on the road.”

Black Label Society’s Zakk Wylde continued:

“ANTHRAX is one of The BESTEST LEGENDARY METAL/THRASH BANDS of ALL TIME — I have been buds with SCOTTY, CHARLIE, FRANKIE & JOEY for over 30 years and they are some of the BESTEST people you will meet. JON is The BESTEST new addition ANTHRAX could ask for — HATEBREED are The BESTEST HARDCORE/EXTREME METAL band & BESTEST friends w/ANTHRAX & BLACK LABEL SOCIETY. The ANTHRAX + BLACK LABEL SOCIETY & HATEBREED TOUR is going to be one of the BESTEST TOURS EVER!!”

Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta added:

“Listen up! It’s gonna be a hot summer! Anthrax, BLS, and Hatebreed will be on your case, in your face, and ready to kick you and your father back in place! See you in the pit.”

Parkway Drive Cancel North American Tour

Parkway Drive have cancelled their spring North American tour with Hatebreed, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Stick To Your Guns. The group said “the relentless nature of being in this band has given [them] very little time to reflect on who [they] are as individuals” and that they want to use “this time for the growth that is needed.”

The band issued the following statement:

“Dear friends, family and fans,

This is something we never thought we would be writing, but we not only all believe you deserve an explanation, but we feel the need to communicate and connect with true honesty. Firstly, this is hard, please know we are fully aware that another canceled tour is not what you want to see from us, and for any expectations or plans we have messed with, we are truly sorry.

We have been doing this thing called Parkway Drive for nearly 20 years. We started as kids and never looked back. It has been a wild ride, but over those years, the relentless nature of being in this band has given us very little time to reflect on who we are as individuals, who we want to be and the toll it is taking on ourselves and our friendships. It has always been 100% commitment or nothing. We feel the limit has been reached and we don’t want to fuck this up. The same devotion that we have put into everything before, we are now putting into processing what these 20 years have done to us. With this, we aim to grow and return stronger for what is yet to come. We know what we need to do and we humbly ask for your respect while we take this time for the growth that is needed. It has been said that it is better to burn out than to fade away. We do not want either, so know that our return will burn brighter than the past.

Jeff, Luke, Ben, Jia and Winston.

p.s. We are still focused and committed to our European tour, so that will go ahead as planned in Sep/Oct 2022.”
