Waylon Reavis (A Killer’s Confession, Ex-Mushroomhead) Diagnosed With Colon Cancer

Waylon Reavis (A Killer’s Confession, ex-Mushroomhead) has revealed that he is currently battling colon cancer. The frontman says he was diagnosed with the disease two months ago.

Reavis discussed his diagnosis during a recent virtual “Headbangers Con” event:

“My heart crashed. My father passed away from this at 58 years old, and my mother passed at 39 from breast cancer. I was just waiting for my time. Luckily, they caught it early, and they were able to cut it all out. I have had four removed, but they keep growing fast. I have changed my entire diet, thanks to my wife and taking medications. I may have to battle this the rest of my life, but I am going to live my life happy and fight.”

He later added that his cancer battle and his father’s death have also influenced some of the material on the new A Killer’s Confession album:

“A couple of songs are about my cancer and about my father. Those songs mean a lot to me. I cannot wait for everyone to hear them. I’m really excited about this one. Every album I write is different and will never be the same as the others. This one is both heavy and melodic. I took myself back to my roots. It’s what the fans want, so I always like to give them what they have been waiting to hear.”

The record’s first single, “Remember,” is set to be released on January 27.

Mushroomhead Premiere “The Heresy” Music Video

Mushroomhead have premiered a new video for their song “The Heresy.” This track is from the band’s new album “A Wonderful Life,” which will be released on June 19. J Mann described the track as “the soundtrack to a dystopian delirium, cinematic and surreal!” Steve “Skinny” Felton also added the following about the video:

“We wanted to do something a little more thought-provoking this time around. With the current state of the world going to Hell in a hand basket, we wanted to incorporate something that delivered the swift transportation of certain doom. The manufacturing of war power and the stockpiling of faith. The willful destruction of the past, the future, and ultimately humanity.”
