Metallica Adds To Orion
Metallica has added several more acts to the bill for the second Orion Music + More Festival, scheduled for June 8th and 9th at Belle Isle in Detroit. Top of the list is a reunion of Infectious Grooves, the ’90s funk-rock supergroup that featured current Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo as well as members of Suicidal Tendencies. Also appearing with Infectious Grooves at Orion will be Jane’s Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins and ex-Faith No More guitarist Jim Martin. Trujillo said in a video message, “To reunite with those guys after 22 years is going to be really special for me. Orion is the perfect place for that to happen . . . I’m looking forward to it.”
In addition to Infectious Grooves, other bands joining the lineup include Dead Sara, the reunited Rocket From The Crypt, the former Kyuss Lives lineup now known as Vista Chino, and Detroit favorites Matt Clarke and Calico.
Previously announced acts include Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rise Against, Deftones, Silversun Pickups, The Joy Formidable and many more.
