CHIMAIRA SET TO SPREAD THE INFECTION ON THE 2010 ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL APPEARING ON THE JAGERMEISTER STAGE ALONGSIDE HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL AND WINDS OF PLAGUE
2009 was an amazing year for CHIMAIRA as it saw the release of their latest album The Infection, U.S. tours with Disturbed, Hatebreed, and Trivium as well as a headlining European tour. 2010 started off with CHIMAIRA touring in Australia and New Zealand and they have a tour of the United Kingdom on tap for March. And if that’s not enough for you, the lineup for the 2010 ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL has just been released and CHIMAIRA have been tapped to play on the Jagermeister Stage with Hatebreed, Shadows Fall and Winds of Plague.
CHIMAIRA front man Mark Hunter had the following to say about the upcoming festival:
This summer is going to be a blast. In case you haven’t heard, we have been added to this years Mayhem Festival! CHIMAIRA love playing the festival circuit and we haven’t done so since 2007. So, to say we are ready would be an understatement. The line-up is killer, and filled with our friends and former touring mates, we simply can’t wait.
CHIMAIRA exploded onto the Billboard Top 200 charts in 2009 with the debut of their crushing new album, The Infection. The album landed at #30, with over 15,000 units sold. The Infection is the band’s fifth studio album and the follow up to their acclaimed 2007 release, Resurrection¸ which debuted at #42 on Billboard.
