The main stage will feature metal titans Slipknot and Slayer. A major special guest will play the third slot, but they won’t be announced until March 5th. The main stage will also spotlight a ferocious mix of today’s best artists in a rotation, including The Devil Wears Prada, As I Lay Dying, and Asking Alexandria.
The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival will make a 26-date trek across the U.S. beginning on June 30th at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California. Get Off Your Ass pre-sale tickets become available on April 6, 2012.
As I Lay Dying will enter the studio this spring to record their fifth full length album and follow-up to 2010’s The Powerless Rise, which debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Charts at Number 10. The band has chosen a producer and will announce more details about the album in the coming weeks. The album’s release date is tentatively scheduled for this summer.
