Mower Added To San Diego, CA Date of Rockstar Mayhem Festival Featuring Slipknot & Disturbed
San Diego, CA’s Mower have been added to the July 16th San Diego, CA date of the Rockstar Music Mayhem Festival featuring Slipknot and Disturbed. The band will be performing alongside metal heavyweights like Machine Head, 36 Crazyfists and Five Finger Death Punch in the group’s hometown.
“THANK YOU! That’s what you say about performing on the Jagermeister stage in San Diego on the biggest tour of the summer, the Rockstar Mayhem Festival,” says frontman Brian Sheerin. “We’re wrapping up the new Mower CD this month and we’ve got some heavy new material we’re looking forward to playing at Mayhem.”
Mower recently entered a Los Angeles, CA recording studio with producer Eddie Wohl (Anthrax, Ill Nino, 36 Crazyfists, Dry Kill Logic) to record their upcoming new album. The album is a split release with six brand new Mower songs and six songs from the group’s jazz alter ego Slower. Slower is comprised of the Mower band members performing jazz and lounge versions of Mower songs.
“We’ve a couple guest guitarists, guest vocals, string sections keyboards and percussion for this album. Stay tuned in the coming weeks and we’ll announce a pretty sick list of musicians that have been collaborating with us in the studio,” Sheerin says. “Our writing style changed in that there are more songs about events that we lived through and people in our lives, but our sarcasm hasn’t faded one bit and neither has our sense of humor.”
The band recently released a video for the track “American Psycho”.
The track appears on the group’s critically acclaimed sophomore effort, “Not For You”, which saw them tour the US relentlessly alongside (Hed)p.e. and Diecast. The album’s lead single “Road Rage” was one of most requested tracks on Sirius Satellite Radio’s Hard Attack for twelve consecutive weeks.
