SOULFLY Mainman Says It’s ‘An Honor’ To Play ‘Gathering Of The Juggalos’ Festival

SOULFLY will perform at the 2012 Gathering Of The Juggalos, set to take place August 8-12 in Cave-in-Rock, Illinois, where it’s been the last few years.

The event has been gaining mainstream media attention and getting larger and larger each year, with its organizers, INSANE CLOWN POSSE, welcoming hip-hop, hard rock and metal performers, professional wrestlers, and comedians to the event’s multiple stages, including everyone from ICE CUBE, GEORGE CLINTON AND PALIAMENT/FUNKADELIC, and METHOD MAN and REDMAN to GWAR and Charlie Sheen.

And now, SOULFLY will be the first Roadrunner Records artist to play for the notoriously volatile juggalo audience, who shower performers with love (and Faygo soda) if they like them and hurl bottles if they don’t.

Says frontman Max Cavalera, “It’s a challenge and at the same time it’s an honor that they specifically asked for SOULFLY to play at the festival. We’re gonna give our best show possible and we’re going to fuck shit up at the Gathering Of The Juggalos.”

SOULFLY tour dates run July 31 through August 17.
