Now something of an annual tradition, Roadrunner, currently the home to the likes of Slipknot and Sepultura, further extend their reputation as having one of the keenest ears for new (no, not nu, that’s just soooo lame) rock. This tour showcases the muscular metal talents of Chimaira (pictured), Ill Nino and Spineshank - three bands providing three different perspectives on how to abuse eardrums from around the globe.
