It was pretty cool to see that Japanese metal band Maximum the Hormone were one of the bands playing the Knotfest this year. Undoubtedly brought to Slipknot or their management’s attention when they were on tour in Japan, the band’s heavy, weird and melodic at the same time, kind of like a much heavier Faith No More. Now it seems like the band are extending their US visit to the East Coast and playing New York City. They’ll be headlining the Best Buy Theater on Monday, October 27th, which is a pretty large venue for a band that most people in America don’t know about. However, there could be a lot of Japanese fans that have been waiting for them to come around again. Pre-sale tickets are on sale now by using the password OMEKO (which is slang for ‘vagina,’ btw) here. Tickets will be on sale to the general public on Friday, 7/11.
