In celebration of the release of its new DVD, Volume III
, the local metal act Mushroomhead will host an exclusive, one-night-only screening/premiere of the entire two-hour DVD at 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 15, at the Cedar Lee Theatre. Tickets, which include a copy of the DVD, are $25.
"Members of our team originally wanted us to do this premiere in L.A. or New York, but Cleveland is our hometown, and we want to represent," says producer/drummer/founder Steve "Skinny" Felton in a press release announcing the screening. "Our local fans are the people who made us who we are today, and this is a once in a lifetime event. I'm excited to see how Volume III
translates to the big screen... we've never done this before, so it's an entirely new version stage fright, ha! Good thing Cedar Lee has a bar!"
Then, on Thursday, Aug. 16, the band will take part in a special DVD signing at the Exchange in Parma Heights. The signing will take place from 7 to 10 p.m. and will feature the band members in full costume. DVDs will be available for purchase at the signing, and a DVD must be purchased in order to have access to photos and autographs with the band.
Few critics figured that the local metal act Mushroomhead, which first formed in 1993, would still be going strong 25 years down the road. But the band has fared well — it continues to relentlessly tour and is currently gearing up for the Summer of Screams tour that’ll pair it with Powerman 5000, the Browning, Psychostick, Kissing Candice, Unsaid Fate, Voodoo Terror Tribe and Earth Caller.
Now, the band has just announced the upcoming release of a new DVD, Volume III
Due out Aug. 17, the DVD features more than 90 minutes of new material, including new music videos, footage of backstage antics and exclusive never-seen-before content. Pre-orders are available now via Amazon
