If you were planning on catching Judas Priest, Bullet For My Valentine, Jinjer, Nita Strauss, or If I Die First at this year’s Afterhsock Festival, well, it’s pickles on parade for you, because those bands have all dropped off. However, a pretty awesome crop of acts have signed on to replace them — specifically Danzig, In Flames, Prong, Set It Off, and Joey Valence & Brae.

Aftershock made the following statement via their Facebook:

“Aftershock Rockers! Unfortunately, Judas Priest, Bullet For My Valentine, Jinjer, If I Die First and Nita Strauss are no longer able to perform at Aftershock 2022. Please join us in welcoming Danzig, Joey Valence & Brae, In Flames, Prong and Set It Off to the Aftershock 2022 lineup 🤘

Wonder why those bands dropped off? Could it be a tour? Is there something about Aftershock we don’t know about?

In any event, here’s the festival’s updated line-up as it now stands:

October 6

October 7

October 8
