This year’s Louder Than Life and Aftershock festivals will be hosting some special all-star tributes for the late Vinnie Paul (Pantera, HELLYEAH, etc.). The sets are being curated by SiriusXM’s Jose Mangin and they will feature various artists performing Pantera and Damageplan covers.

Members of the following bands will be participating:

Aftershock: Korn, Godsmack, Deftones, HELLYEAH, Shinedown, Sevendust, GWAR, Kyng, Emmure, and more.

Mangin commented:

“Vinnie is an idol turned big time friend, and he left a massive void on this earth. When Danny [Wimmer] and Gary [Spivack] asked me to put together something special for Vin, I knew the best way to pay tribute to him would be to throw a Texas-sized jam session belting out Pan-mutha-fukkin-tera songs loud & proud! Everyone involved is doing this because they love Vinnie, and together we can all carry on his name, music and spirit forever!”

Louder Than Life will be held on September 28-30 at Champions Park in Louisville, KY and Aftershock will be held on October 13-14 at Discovery Park in Sacramento, CA.

Sevendust’s Lajon Witherspoon “Writing With A Very Well-Known Singer In The Rock World” For Solo Project

Sevendust’s Lajon Witherspoon is still working on a solo project and has revealed that he will be “writing with a very well-known singer in the rock world.” He said the following on “Jon’s Untitled Podcast”:

“Actually, I’m still working on some solo stuff. So I’m excited about that too… You know I put a song out on iTunes called ‘Love Song‘ you know that some people seemed to dig. It was a little different side to what I do. I do know that I’ll be doing some writing with a very well-known singer in the rock world that I really admired. I think a lot of people will be excited about but I can’t say no more than that. We’ve been wanting to do some music for a long time l, so we’re gonna make that happen and it’ll be with my solo stuff. So yea just in the future, not too long. When the Sevendust ship starts slowing down a bit, taking on a lil’ water. [laughs]”
