Ex-MUSHROOMHEAD singer Jason Popson (a.k.a. J-Mann) rejoined his former bandmates Saturday night (July 2) to sing a song at a packed Peabody's Down Under night club in Cleveland, Ohio. Jason, who is one of the singers for THE ALTER BOYS and the lead singer for (216), sang the song "Ego Tripp" to a surprised group of fans there to see the first of two days of back-to-back MUSHROOMHEAD "old-school" shows.
Popson's THE ALTER BOYS project are scheduled to play Peabody's Down Under on July 16.
As previously reportd, MUSHROOMHEAD will release their first DVD, entitled "Volume 1", on July 26 via their own label, the Lumberjack-distributed The Filthy Hands Co. The title is available for pre-orders at www.mushroomhead.com for $19.98 (pre-orders will arrive one day before release date).
The band self-produced, shot, directed and edited the entire DVD, which offers fans the opportunity to experience the band in several ways. It includes music videos, "Solitaire/Unraveling" from their Universal debut "XX", as well as tracks from their follow-up, "XIII", "Sun Doesn't Rise" and "Kill Tomorrow" (a new video which the band lensed themselves), live performances and candid behind-the-scenes footage of the band, unmasked.
