Mayhem Festival

Artistically heavy The Devil Wears Prada highlights the lineup for this summer’s annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, most likely hitting a city in your vicinity. The band announced they will be returning to their former label, Rise Records, and will be releasing a new EP just in time for this festival.

Slayer will be headlining alongside King Diamond,Whitechapel and Code Orange, a special highlight from this past month’s South By So What?! Festival will also sneak in. Victory Records will repeat their stage again this year, seeing Sister Sin debut on the stage as hot as ever.
