Heidi Shepherd commented:

“Blasting back into the realm of live music is already the thing that I am most excited about in life. Adding in playing our debut album ‘Goliath’ every night on top of that makes this one of our most explosive tours to date. I’m especially excited to bring our friends in Infected Rain and Stitched Up Heart along for the ride. This will without a doubt be a DO-NOT-MISS tour with some of the fiercest ladies in metal!”

Carla Harvey continued:

“After almost a year and a half of dark stages, we are so thrilled to be going back out on the road. I cannot wait for that first electric moment in front of a live crowd again, celebrating the return of music together! I expect lots of happy tears in the mosh pit on this run. Making the return even sweeter, we’re bringing along some of our favorite women in metal. This is our first female fronted tour package in the United States, a display of girl power at its finest!”

Henry Flury added:

“We can’t wait to unleash ‘Goliath’ in the stage. Beware kids…we’ve been hibernating. On a scale of 1 to melted faces, get ready to receive an 11.”

Powerman 5000’s Spider One Calls Out Bands For Playing Upcoming “Herd Immunity Fest”, Nonpoint Drop Off

In unsurprising news, the upcoming “Herd Immunity Fest,” which is set to take place at The Q&Z Expo Center in Ringle, WI on July 16-18, has been generating some controversy, considering we are still in the middle of a pandemic. Among those who called out the event was Powerman 5000’s Spider One, who tweeted the following:

Nonpoint, who were scheduled to perform at the festival, also responded to Spider One saying that they dropped off:

Organizers have also addressed the backlash themselves by changing the name of the event:

“For the record the venues land can accommodate up to 10,000 occupancy. This is an OUTDOOR EVENT for 3 Days. We are only selling 20% of that so anyone has the choice and ability to social distance. The Festival is also not called “Herd Immunity” and the name no longer tied to any of our social media or promotion.”

Static-X, Nonpoint, Dope, Etc. Set For “Herd Immunity Fest”

A number of rock/metal acts will apparently be performing at a mini-festival in Ringle, WI next month. The event, which is being called “Herd Immunity Fest,” will take place at The Q&Z Expo Center on July 16-18 and the daily lineups can be found below:

July 16: Blacktop Mojo and Flaw.

July 17: Bobaflex, Royal Bliss, Thunderstruck (AC/DC tribute), ONE (Metallica tribute), and Saul.

July 18: Static-X, Nonpoint, Dope, Kaledio, and Versus Me.
