Coal Chamber Drops Off Insane Clown Posse Tour

Citing "production difficulties," progressive metal purveyors Coal Chamber dropped off of their tour with Insane Clown Posse and Biohazard over the weekend.

While the tour was scheduled to run through late August, but the band's last show with ICP and Biohazard came on Friday in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania just two dates into the tour (which launched the previous night in Philadelphia).

The band Mindless Self Indulgence has been added to the bill to replace Coal Chamber, and the tour will hit Fort Wayne, Indiana as planned on Thursday.

A spokesperson for Coal Chamber's record label, Roadrunner Records, said that concerns with lighting, stage space, and pyrotechnics were among the issues prompting them to leave the bill. Coal Chamber is now putting together its own U.S. tour with labelmates Slipknot and Machine Head. The tour gets underway on August 11, and a complete itinerary is expected to be announced soon.
