Set for October 6th-9th in Sacramento, California, this year's Aftershock festival features an absolutely stacked lineup of heavy hitters — Slipknot, KISS, My Chemical Romance, Muse, Rob Zombie, Evanescence, Lamb of God, Bring Me the Horizon and many, many more are scheduled to play across the event's sure-to-be-epic four days.
Those names were set to include Judas Priest, Bullet for My Valentine, Jinjer, If I Die First and Nita Strauss, but unfortunately, according to an announcment today (June 28th), all five will no longer be able to perform at the fest. On the upside, the fine folks behind Aftershock have a contingency plan, and a good one. Replacing the aforementioned acts will be Danzig, In Flames, Joey Valence, Prong and Set It Off.
