Pre-order TMDP

ABK/DJ Clay Live

3 JCW Shows

Family Focus


      Two weeks are all that separate you from seeing the next explosive Insane Clown Posse concert! This shit is going to be so fuckin’ bangin’ that it’s going to leave the city of Mount Clemens, MI covered in wigs that were flipped straight out of the building during the show!

      ICP’s setlist is going to be so absolutely devastating that it’s going to slap the taste out of every single person's mouth that is standing in the crowd! It’s goin’ to be that good!

      On Saturday, June 23rd, the Insane Clown Posse will be taking the stage at the Emerald Ballroom in Mount Clemens, MI! Yup, takin’ it back to a local wicked clown show! You know Violent J and Shaggy have got much love for ‘Los and ‘Lettes all over the Earf, but nothing compares to a show right in the Murda Mitt!

      This show is goin’ to be cool as hell, too, because the Insane Clown Posse haven’t previously played at the Emerald Ballroom! It’s a fantastic venue that has had a shit ton of huge name grace the stage, so The Duke of the Wicked and The Southwest Strangla decided it was about time they added their names to the list!

      So, what do you have to look forward to? It’s everything you would expect from an Insane Clown Posse, plus SO MUCH MORE! With the era of The Mighty Death Pop steadily on the approach and practically engulfing the nation as we speak, ICP’s shows have been giving off an extra surge of karma that is impossible miss! Every single Juggalo and Juggalette in the building, old and new, can sense the magic that’s on the horizon and these concerts turn into a celebration of the next Joker’s card!

      But you know the usual suspects will be there as well! Dead fuckin’ decayin’ zombies will be doin’ the headless boogie all over the stage! Monsters will be crawling

out of their holes and gettin’ down the brutal beats! Don’t forget the wicked clown army that always comes out in full force!

      And what would an Insane Clown Posse show be without the sweet sugar bombs of two liter splendor soaring through the air!? FAAAAAAAYGOOOOOOOO! Thousands of bottles will be on hand and ready to cut through the air as the shit goes down!

      The Insane Clown Posse can hang on their own, obviously, but what’s the fun in that? They wanted some FRESH openers to help turn the night out. Good news? THEY GOT THEM, and then some!

      Hittin’ the stage first before the Insane Clown Posse will be the legend… KUNG FU VAMPIRE! His rhymes are just as bone chilling as he is and he tears up the stage like fangs ripping into a soft pulsing jugular!

      After that we’ve got Humblodt County’s finest… POTLUCK!! They bring the bud AND they bring the bass as they drop their hard hittin’ joints for the whole crowd!

      SHIT IS NOT TO BE MISSED! Grab a pencil, grab a pen, FUCK! Grab a sharpie and write this shit on your arm if you can’t fuckin’ remember! Saturday, June 23rd! Emerald Ballroom in Mount Clemens, MI! Doors are at 7:00PM EST! All ages are welcome! You gotta be there!

      Tickets for the show are available NOW on ticketmaster.com! Also at Roadshow in Roseville, MI! Rock of Ages in Garden City, MI! And hatchetgear.com! Just hit ‘em up, grab your tickets, and get ready for another night of face punching flavor from Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J!

      You know we can’t mention the freshness of The Insane Clown Posse and The Gathering of the Juggalos without goin’ right into talkin’ about the most highly anticipated album of the Insane Clown Posse’s fuckin’ career… THE MIGHTY DEATH POP!

      It’s the second joker's card of the second deck and its arrival is right on the horizon. It’s officially going to be dropping worldwide on 08.14.12! That means ‘Los and ‘Lettes will be able to pick it up no matter where they’re at!

      But if you want to be a hella smart ninja we suggest you mosey yourself over to hatchetgear.com and pre-order that shit right now! That’s the easiest way to guarantee that when the sunrises on 08.14.12, your Mighty Death Pop album will be waitin’ for you! And all pre-orders get a FREE Mighty Death Pop keychain!

      The anticipation is killin’ us. We can't wait to peel that plastic wrap off, to paw through the CD booklet, to pop that disc into our CD players, and to put on the biggest pair of headphones we own to zone the fuck out on some new wicked clown flavor. THAT’S how you listen to a fuckin’ Insane Clown Posse album for the first time! At least that’s how we do it! But you don’t have to figure that all out right now.

      For now, your biggest decision is to figure out which version of The Mighty Death Pop you’re going to claim! There are THREE versions to pick from, each with its own very distinct brand of wig splitting superiority to offer! Which one will you pick?

      Will it be the White Pop version that includes Mike E. Clark’s Extra Pop Emporium? It features 13 tracks of outtakes, remixes, and collabos with HUGE heavy hitters of the music scene! We’re talkin’ about Color Me Badd! Three 6 Mafia! Willie D! Scarface! Kottonmouth Kings! Swollon Members! Geto Boys! Ice Cube! and Kreayshawn!

      What about the Red Pop version that comes with Smothered, Covered, and Chunked? It’s straight covers from front to back all rehashed by the Insane Clown Posse! From Yo Gabba to Eazy E and everything in between!

      Or how about the Black Pop version that will come with FREAKY TALES? It’s Insane Clown Posse’s take on Too $hort’s ho flows of the same name from back in the day. While Too $hort’s song was well known for being long at eight minutes, ICP took it above and beyond by creating their own ho flow that goes on for sixty-four minutes! ICP, doin’ the damn thang bigger and longer than ever!

      Make up your mind then head over to hatchetgear.com now and pre-order your copy of The Mighty Death Pop. Can’t decide on which one you want? Just pick up all three! And for more news about the Insane Clown Posse, The Mighty Death Pop, and MUCH MORE just check out insaneclownposse.com!

He earned the fuck out of that title with a lot of blood, sweat, and other unnamed bodily fluids, so we’re proud as fuck to call him our champion. But with these three upcoming shows and Bloodymania at The 2012 Gathering of the Juggalos on the way, how long can it last?

      With the Insane Clown Posse’s next concert steadily comin’ up, it got us thinking about our first Insane Clown Posse concert. That turned into everyone around the Hatchet Herald Headquarters talkin’ about their first Psychopathic Shows.

      Some of us have been around from the very beginning chilling back stage. Others started out as ‘Los and ‘Lettes out in the crowd. But no matter who we were and where we were, we knew that we were witnessing somethin’ fuckin’ EPIC !

      So, that made us turn to you, our homies! We hit up facebook.com/insaneclownposse and asked everyone to tell us about their first Psychopathic show. Insane Clown Posse, Twiztid, ABK, Blaze, whatever it was we wanted to hear about it.

      While we got too many entries to print them all, as usual, we did go through them all and we enjoyed every last one. Whether your first show was waaaay back in the day or the American Psychos Tour, it doesn’t matter! A Psychopathic show is somethin’ electric and we can all agree on that!

      So, without further delay, here are YOUR STORIES about your first Psychopathic shows!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Chelsea Belle Katherine Rigney: It was the Wicked Wonka tour in SLC, UT. After that day this juggalette knew where she belonged. Whoop Whoop!!!

J.R. Kennie: House of Horrors tour...Myzery, Psycho Realm, Twiztid, and ICP at the House of Blues in Chicago. Psycho Realm had B Real come out with a gas mask with a bowl piece on the end. It was Twiztids first tour with ICP and they rocked it. Lastly ICP started the show with Dead Body Man. Not only was it my first ICP show but my first concert EVER.

Magika Shields: birmingham, uk - shangrila tour

Jay Lamar: Twiztid at chico,ca brickworks. Mostastless tour!!!! Best show ever! Then icp shortly afterwards because they were banned for a bit for leaving 3" of faygo in the senator theater before they gave up caring and welcomed our homies back with open rug doctors!!! Whoop whoop!

Osiris Dementia: House of Horrors at The Abyss in Virginia Beach.."on a stage thats so high the juggalos reach"

Stephan EagleEye Booth: I have a story about my brothers first time at an ICP concert here in Iowa, especially clive. My brother has never been to a concert and he is 14 years old. I explained to him that it can get crazy so be safe and alert. Well we was in the crowd and ABK comes on and says "all you juggalos on the left go to the right and all you juggalos on the right side go to the left when I say go. When he said go i swear me and my brother literally was on our side from the crowd moving around. The look on his face was priceless, his jaw dropped and he was in amazement. This was just ABK and when ICP came on he absolutely went wild..... To this day he is even bigger fan than I am. I have been down since '93. MMFCL!

Maggie Brothers: Twiztid Green Book Tour in Cleveland Ohio! My short ass plowed through the crowd to get up to the front! I will never forget the fun I had and I have the ticket displayed on my wall along with some pix of the demented duo!

Michael Daugherty: icp 2000 hallowickid in atl georgia was epic as hell been going to everyone i get a chance to ever since mmfwcl whoop whoop

Adam Haluska: Shangri-La tour was my first show, was awesome seeing 2 Live Crew open up

Bart Spanfellner: The first concert was in toledo ohio at the asylum it was back in 95 it was total chaos been going to shows ever since the one that stands out the most wax when the fire marshal shut the show down and violent j said fuck that we still got faygo and started throwing it to the crowd and the police came in the club and was swinging rubber bats and shooting tear gas it was so fucking cool and i've been down and always will be

Barbara Butts: Boondox and Blaze and it changed my life in a way that is beyond unexplainable. The Feeling that you get when you are around fam the acceptance the love the energy it something only another juggalo/Lette will ever be able to understand....MMFWCL

Ashlehh McDermott: i remember going to the hallowicked in 2008, man it changed my life to finally see you guys up on stage. that shit was off the chain


Jason Silva: The first psychopathic and or ICP show was the Wicked Clowns From Outer Space tour with Twiztid. It was amazing and I've gone on to see Icp 16 times.I love going to see a psychopathic show ICP the most though.

Steve Isaac: Dark Lotus - Black Rain Tour at Clutch Cargos in the 'D'. They were all dressed in pinstriped suits...was the most awesome thing ever!

Sarah Houston: First time was Twiztid's slaughterhouse tour. February 20,2010.At the palladium in Worcester.!I went with some of my friends. Another juggalo came up next to me and started dancing with me. I definitely felt the hatchet love. In line my friend and I got sprayed with blue-ras faygo when it was freezing fucking cold I couldn’t feel a fucking thing. Down for 5 years now and loving every damn second of it.! I've been going to every show since then and Tech N9ne is tomorrow.! Whoop Whoop? Mmfwcl.

Randall McNeill: ?2001 Hatchet rizing tour, it was madness. 11 years old standing in line with my dad, people were tearing the bricks off the wall of the masquerade in atlanta waiting to get in. Seeing everyone that night (Blaze,Twiztid,ICP,Dark Lotus) was a memory that has stayed with me and will continue staying with me. Thank you for the memories Psychopathic.

Bill Dunn: My 1st show was in 99 on the Amazing Jeckyl Bros tour at the E Factory in Philly!

Destin Leatherwood: The house of horrors tour in Atlanta, shit was crazy fresh all the classics were played it was the last time they used assorted flavors of faygo in Atlanta and the last time they played the tabernacle.. I haven't stopped going ever since.. I'm down with the clown..

Mike Malicoat: great milenko in 98.. 14 years later my hatchet is still swangim mmfwcl from the 71666

Mark Mayhew: My very first psychopathic show I ever saw was the Hell's Pit Tour in Spokane, WA. My best friend and closest ninja at the time K.C. Panik (Kody Beardsly) paid for my ticket cause I was just a broke ass young ninja. Our teacher's excused him, I, and our other 3 ninjas so we could drive out to the show early as fuck. It was one of the best times of my life man. We met Billy Bill and he had us help him set up barricades for the show and gave us each a faygo as pay. What stands out the most to me about it is that my homie K.C. Panik is dead now and has been for a couple years but when I think back on that night I feel my ninja with me. Whoop Whoop! MMFCL RIP KC PANIK!

Jennifer Grody: My first show was a Hallowicked in Detroit in 2008. First GOTJ was 2009 & has hit up every Hallowicked since & I have 2 GOTJ's under my belt (3rd next yr.). I'll idmit I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into at my first show, but I promise you this..I will NEVER get the LOVE I feel at any other concert & Can't wait to see you on the 23rd as well! MWCL!

Kegan Ault: My first concert, not just Psychopathic, but EVER was the "Psychopathic All Stars" at St. Andrews Hall. It was Jumpsteady, ABK, Blaze, and Esham on the ticket but Twiztid and ICP both showed up as surprise guests! It was, to this day, one of the BEST shows I've ever been too! What a way to start off your first concert huh? MCL!

Matt Wilburn: ?1995 The Odeon in the Cleveland flats, Riddle Box tour! Friends of mine who I went to highschool with who weren't even fans of ICP opened up, they were called Superfund. Their parents still have the video footage from that show but they won't give it up, and it happened 17 years ago, holy shit I feel old! Then I went to the infamous show shown in the Shockumentary at the old Peabody's where the stage caved in, ahhh memories!

Lee Jenkins: Icp twiztid and biohazard was the open act at hammerstein ballroom nyc I think it was back in 97 or 98

Brett Simpson: October 1998 - ICP at the Dome Arena in Rochester, NY! Very insane times! I got up on stage and everything. My two brothers were with me, and one is no longer with us, but at least he got to experience a great, wild old school clown show with his blood fam and hatchet fam!

Eli Malone: My first show was The Hell's Pit tour,the excitement building up to that day was unbelievable,me and like seven other people got a limo for the show and showed up in style, I don't even remember the opening acts that might because I was too anxious for Icp to come out, finally after what seemed like hours they hit the stage, all the lights went out and Walk into the Darkness started playing, shaggy an J walked out(shaggy and J both had shaved heads, it was crazy seeing shaggy without the dreads) dressed in bloody white robes and mule heads on a stick,t hats the most I remember in detail because the rest of the show was complete chaos and faygo, I’ve been to many gatherings and seen them many times here in Indy but that show will forever be my favorite

James Goode: ?1999 grand junction colorado. psychopathics from outer space tour. my first ever show & i walked out with monoxides hockey jersey that he threw into the crowd. i still got the jersey & that was the best show ever
