Indian folk-metal sensation Bloodywood is headed back to the U.S. for a whirlwind spring tour, and they're bringing two of Revolver's favorite nu-metal revivalists along for the ride. The band's just-announced RAKSHAK USA Tour will see them joined by Vended (featuring vocalist Griffin Taylor and drummer Simon Crahan, sons of Slipknot's Corey Taylor and Shawn "Clown" Crahan, respectively) and Limp Bizkit- and Jonathan Davis-approved U.K. duo Wargasm.
"We are thrilled to be back playing for our fans in the United States," Bloodywood vocalist Jayant Bhadula commented. "This tour is going to be a celebration of heavy metal, Indian culture, and the power of music to bring people together."
The trek will kick off on May 2nd in Seattle and wrap up at the Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival in Columbus, Ohio, on May 25th. Check out the full itinerary below.
