Nu Metal Madness Tour Featuring (hed)p.e., Crazy Town, Adema + Flaw Booked for Summer
Rumors of the tour lineup began circulating earlier in March and now everything is officially locked in with the four bands hitting 20 cities, starting in Denver, Colorado on July 6 and finishing up in Reedley, California on July 30 after going coast-to-coast.
The timing couldn't be more ideal — tours have finally returned with full force after some bumps last year with a high volume of COVID outbreaks among bands and crew and nu-metal is enjoying a surge in popularity with the re-emergence of classic era bands as well as newcomers giving the style their own spin.
Headliners — or should we say, (hed)liners — (hed)p.e. have been among the most active of nu-metal bands over the last 25 years, steadily releasing new records with the latest being Califas Worldwide, which dropped earlier this year. Crazy Town, meanwhile, last released The Brimstone Sluggers in 2015, and Adema's most recent album dates back to 2007. Flaw, who rightfully came under heavy scrutiny in 2021 when singer Chris Volz used the n-word onstage, issued Revival this year.
