Rob Zombie has announced a new tour that is sure to deliver some incredible ‘90s and 2000s nu metal and industrial nostalgia!

Featuring Mudvayne, Static-X, and Powerman 5000, the Freaks On Parade tour feels like a lineup ripped right out of the ‘90s or early 2000s. All these bands experienced major popularity during these times, as nu metal and industrial metal gained more attention in the mainstream heavy music limelight.

Rob Zombie made his solo debut in 1998 with the release of Hellbilly Deluxe: 13 Tales of Cadaverous Cavorting Inside the Spookshow International. Last year, Zombie released his seventh studio album, The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy.

Mudvayne formed in 1996, but began a hiatus in 2010. The band then came back together in 2021; their most recent studio album is that of their 2009 self-titled album.

Static-X formed in 1994, then went on hiatus in 2010. The band came back together for a brief time (2012 – 2013), with longtime band vocalist Wayne Static sadly passing away in 2014. The band formed again in 2018 and are active to this day. The band have released seven studio albums at this time, with their most recent album being 2020’s Project: Regeneration Vol. 1.

Powerman 5000 features Rob Zombie’s brother Spider One and was formed in 1991. The band have been active ever since, releasing a total of 11 studio albums at this time; their most recent record is 2020’s The Noble Rot.
