Coal Chamber Foresees Mayhem On ICP-Biohazard Tour

If it's horror-metal you're after, your desires should be satiated considerably when Coal Chamber hooks up with the Insane Clown Posse tour next month, joining Biohazard and Posse proteges Twiztid as an opening act.

MTV News spoke to Coal Chamber recently on the set of the video the band shot for its cover of the old Peter Gabriel hit "Shock the Monkey," and singer Dez Fafara and guitarist Meegs Rascon put their tour views in perspective.

"We just wanted to do something that was really different," began Fafara, "that people wouldn't expect, and put a package together for kids where they can come out and just see a giant freak show... So I think that's going to work out really well."

Rascon added, "With us in there and them, it's definitely going to be some mayhem backstage, and offstage, and onstage." [RealVideo]
