September 29, 2004

The time has finally come for the Hell's Pit Tour! This is it, Juggalos and Juggalettes, ICP's final Joker's Card Tour. Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope are gonna be bringin' it extra fuckin' wicked, and you ain't gonna want to miss this one! I managed to sneak a peek at the stage set, and I can't give any details away, but this is easily one of the fucking dopest sets that they've ever put together. That shit's gonna peel your wig back so far, you're gonna need a hair transplant! This tour is gonna be amazing, and with Mack 10, ABK, and Esham all performing as well, this is one night you're gonna have to see to believe!

The flavor starts this Thursday, 9/30, with a big ass Kickoff Party right here in Detroit at the Majestic Theater. The show's looking mad fresh, and it's gonna be a little different from the rest of the tour, so all you Juggalos around the 313 who're still deciding whether to go or not will wanna pick up a ticket and be there for a night that's sure to have a few surprises! From there, everybody's favorite axe-wielding clowns are gonna be going straight on the road for the next two months, doin' shows all over the country. The complete list of dates is in the Tours section of the website, so make sure you know when ICP's gonna be rollin' into your town. The Hell's Pit tour is starting, and nobody's gonna be safe from those wicked clowns!

We're gonna be hooking up some serious after party flavor in as many cities as we can! This is gonna be your chance to hang out and kick the shit with ICP, ABK, Esham, or thug it out with Mack 10!

There's plenty more than that coming, though... Make sure you're keeping your eyes open at the concerts to see when and where the shit's goin' down! Most of the parties'll be 18 and up, and it's gonna be hella cheap to get in--only $5 or so with your ticket stub from the Hell's Pit Tour.

Goodbye to Zug Izland

September 27, 2004

The time has come to say goodbye to our homies Zug Izland. It's always sad to have to part ways with guys that you've worked closely with over the last couple of years... and even sadder when those guys are your homies. But unfortunately, the reality of the matter is that these things do happen. We're not gonna delve too heavily into the events that led up to this matter, but let's just say that this resolution was mutually agreed upon. Simply put, the time had come. Syn and Mike P. will always be our boys, and ICP and many other Psychopathic acts have plans of doing more work with Mike P. on the production tip in the future. But as for right now, the future of Zug is uncertain. We wish them all the best.

The Wraith: Shangri-La Re-release!

September 22, 2004

Surprise! He's back! That's right, Juggalos, The Wraith: Shangri-La has returned and is better than ever! For those of you that don't know, the original Wraith was a joint venture between Psychopathic and another company. A few months ago, Psychopathic Records had obtained the full rights to the Wraith album and now, today, we are re-releasing it in stores! For those of you that only got one of the original versions, or were thinking about picking up the other version eventually but kept putting it off, this is definitely the time to pick up the other version. And for you collectors out there that must have everything, differences include a double red and gold foil stamp cover, a corrected and adjusted booklet, and adjusted silk screen on the bonus DVDs. Also, most places will have the release on sale for super cheap! And to hook the Juggalos up that already bought the album and were thinkin' about grabbing The Wraith: Shangri-La, for this week and this week only, HatchetGear has the album on sale for super SUPER cheap! Click here to check it outt.

We're gonna be keepin' it Shangri-La for a couple of days, but we'll be hitting you back up later this week with the Hell's Pit layout and more Hell's Pit flavor! Until then, we're gonna let it go back to raining diamonds for a couple more days, Juggalos.

September 17, 2004

Hey Juggalos, we just wanted to announce that Hallowicked is now completely sold out! But even if you didn't get tickets, or if you want to get all the benefits, don't panic that you ain't gonna get to see the Insane Clown Posse live and in concert... There's still some tickets left for the Hell's Pit Kickoff Party here in Detroit on September 30! That's going down at the Majestic Theater in Detroit, and tickets are only $18 through Ticketmaster. The show's starting at 7 PM, and it's gonna be some completely different flavor from what you're gonna see on the tour! But you better believe that these tickets are selling with the quickness, too, so you better get movin' on buying tickets for the kickoff party soon, or else you're gonna be assed out!

Website Contest Winners!

September 16, 2004

Man, you Juggalos out there really know how to bring the flavor when it comes to building some fresh-ass websites! We got hundreds of entries with Hell's Pit themes that we had to run through our judging process, which involved multiple people screening the sites and a comprehensive 100 point scoring system. When it was all finally said and done, though, we had to go with the numbers said--and everything was so dope, the scoring was pretty damn close. It'd be great to give out prizes to everyone who came up with something, but it's a contest, which means some Juggalos gotta win and others... well, they just get the joy of participating. So if your site didn't get picked as one of the winners, it's not because it wasn't a kick-ass site, but because there's just so many kick-ass sites that we had to choose from, and unfortunately, we had to choose. But there was so much fresh Hell's Pit flavor out there that we added in an "Honorable Mention" award which'll receive two tickets to Hallowicked! So, here's your website contest winners:

First place:
Second place:
Third place:
Honorable mention:

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest! If you're a webmaster or one of the main ninjas for one of these sites, make sure you're keeping an eye on your email, 'cause we gotta figure out how to hook ya up!

Agora Theatre in Cleveland

September 14, 2004

Hey all you Juggalos and Juggalettes out there, for those of you who haven't checked up on the Hell's Pit Tour page, you might be unaware that the Cleveland show on October 2nd has been changed from the Pavilion and is now scheduled at the Agora Theatre. If you have purchased tickets for the show prior to this change, then you better get that refund! The Agora will only be accepting tickets for their venue and nobody wants a ticket they can't use. So get a refund from the place you purchased your tickets and get your new one from the Agora. You never know what may happen when it comes to tours (new venues, corrections, changes, etc), so keep your eyeballs glued on the Tour page and keep yourself up-to-date on all the latest effects going down for this devastating tour.

Hell's Pit Tour Changes

September 10, 2004

Hey Juggalos, we've got some announcements to make regarding the upcoming Hell's Pit Tour. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we regret to inform you that Mushroomhead will no longer be part of the upcoming tour. But don't be thinking that this tour's gonna get any less fresh, because joining the Hell's Pit Tour will be none other than Esham the Boogieman! All you Juggalos know that Esham truly is the Godfather of the wicked shit! So if you thought the show was wicked before--with Esham joining the tour, we're stepping it up to a whole other level!

Major Detroit Concert Update!

September 09, 2004

We've gotta give all the Juggalos a heads up if you're planning on hitting up this year's Hallowicked, here in Detroit. Tickets for the show are moving pretty damn fast, and they're on the verge of selling out! If you were even thinking about going, you better make up your mind in the next day or so, 'cause chances are, if you wait longer, you're gonna be assed out!

But never fear... even if you don't get tickets for Hallowicked, or you just want to party with ICP before they go on tour, you're getting your chance now! On Thursday, September 30, there's gonna be a Hell's Pit Kickoff Party at the Majestic Theater here in Detroit! Tomorrow, at 10 AM, tickets go on sale through Ticketmaster for $18. Since it's not part of the Hell's Pit tour, there's gonna be some different flavor there than what you'll be able to see on the tour, so just know that you'll be getting a completely unique experience! It's gonna be ICP with a bunch of special guests that we're keeping on the down low for right now. Doors open at 7PM... Make sure you're there early so you don't miss a thing!

A Different Type of Review

September 09, 2004

Chances are that if you're here at, you've heard what we've had to say about Hell's Pit and what some of the Juggalo sites have said about the album. You may have even seen some of the mainstream coverage and reviews of the album. But there's a few ninjas out there who have their interpretations of the album based their own take on the Joker's Cards, not as a Juggalo, or from all the stale typical media angles, but just from what they've heard. One guy who definitely falls into this category has his review of the album posted here. It's lengthy, but detailed, and it's definitely worth a read, whether to see how one person interpreted Hell's Pit, or maybe to see if his thoughts are the same as yours.

Hell's Pit Burns Up the Charts!

September 08, 2004

Man, we gotta send a big thank you to all the Juggalos out there. Why? Because the first week numbers for Hell's Pit are out, and they are absolutely devastating. All the Juggalos really stepped it up this past week, going out and picking up Hell's Pit in hordes. As a result, the album is debuting this week at #1 on the Billboard Independent chart! You think that's fresh? That ain't even half the story. This album is scheduled to come in somewhere between #10 and #12 on the Billboard Top 200! Those numbers make this album ICP's second-highest chart debut ever! And seeing that it's been 5 years since Jeckel Brothers came out, we're very, very pleased about these chart numbers.

And for the rest of you who, for whatever reason, didn't pick up the album last week--your wallet got stolen; your car engine blew up; your cat got run over; whatever--it's still not too late. Go to the store and get what's destined to be an all-time ICP classic--Hell's Pit!
