Insane Clown Posse’s 15th Annual Gathering of The Juggalos Relocating…But NOT Canceled!

Insane Clown Posse’s 15th Annual Gathering of The Juggalos Relocating…But NOT Canceled!

insaneclownposse

Psychopathic Records and Insane Clown Posse released the following statement on the morning of Thursday, February 13, 2014, addressing news reports that the 15th Annual Gathering of the Juggalos would not be held at Crybaby Campground in Kaiser, Missouri as earlier reported.

“First of all, we at Psychopathic Records want to apologize to all the Juggalos as we announce that the owners of the campground that we have dubbed Harlequin Park in Kaiser, Missouri have decided to not allow the Gathering to take place on their property. This was a hard decision for the people of Harlequin Park and they did not make it lightly. 

Before we get into the details of what happened, we want to assure everyone who bought tickets/passes/campsites that their money will be refunded in full. We plan to work day and night to refund every last ticket promptly so please bear with us. 

We also want to add that the owners of the campground did not have a problem with the Gathering being held on their property and have mad love for all people, including Juggalos. We have been working with them to make sure this was going to be one of the greatest Gatherings ever and they have been nothing but supportive, kind hearted and open minded. They also fully understood what the Gathering was and were fully willing to welcome us with open arms (after all, this is the same spot that hosts a biker rally every year).

However, after we signed the contract and announced the location of the Gathering, some of the people that lived in the surrounding community began to raise hell. Not all of them, mind you, but enough to bring a lot of heat to the owners of the campground. Not only that, they also experienced a media blitz and their phones would not stop ringing. This was no doubt amplified because of the recent lawsuit filed against the FBI by Psychopathic Records and the ACLU for wrongly accusing the Juggalos of being a gang, as well as the reports of last year’s Gathering losing money. Some people in the community where the Gathering was to be held must have believed the nonsense because they kept saying a “gang” was coming to their town and we heard reports that some people were starting to arm themselves. Unbelievable!

Because of this, the owners of Harlequin Park were getting non-stop calls from angry neighbors and some even stopped by their property threatening to boycott their campground and even started a petition against them.  It was just too much of an onslaught of negative energy coming at them for them to handle. They endured the unendurable and suffered the insufferable to the point that they couldn’t take it anymore and decided to pull the plug. We want to add that we at Psychopathic Records hold no resentment toward the people of the campground. They really tried to make this work but with threat of their business suffering long after we have left, it’s understandable why they chose to do what they did. There was no way to prepare for how much attention this was going to get and how negatively some people were going to react to the Gathering coming to their town.

 

So … we DO have a plan B. Since we first realized that things were shaky with the campground, we have been aggressively looking into other areas to hold the Gathering and have a couple places already lined up. Now we realize that for some the news of the Gathering being moved is going to be a major setback.  It’s even sadder because the ticket sales this year have far surpassed those of the past several Gatherings. Apparently it was the right spot, the right time and the right mix of flavor because practically everyone and their momma was going to attend. 

We are now hard at work to make sure there is a new location locked in soon and even as the forces that be continue to oppress us and try to thwart the Juggalo community at every turn … we will endure. Even as close-minded people threaten us and accuse us of being less than human and close the gates in our face … we will march through. Even as they try to keep us from gathering as we do each year for our epic family reunion and people cry and complain … we will prevail. It has always been the Juggalo way to never bow down to the oppressors and to continue on, no matter the obstacles we face. Bear with us a while longer and we will soon be announcing a home for this year’s Gathering of the Juggalos.

Again, we apologize to all Juggalos for any inconvenience this may have caused you and we will strive hard to make this right.”

Insane Clown Posse Ask “Where Is God?” In Controversial and Thought Provoking New Video

Insane Clown Posse Ask “Where Is God?” In Controversial and Thought Provoking New Video

insaneclownposse

Since the beginning of their career, there has been speculation about Insane Clown Posse’s religious beliefs. Now, for the first time ever, ICP address the issue head on in their new music video “Where’s God?”

The video, which was shot on location in the streets of Detroit, features the arresting and controversial image of ICP members Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope carrying huge wooden crosses down a blighted street, as well as rapping in a church. Certain to generate much discussion, ICP hopes “Where’s God?” gives people something to ponder this Easter weekend.

Insane Clown Posse member Violent J released the following statement: “Where’s God? I think everybody at one time or another has had these feelings and questioned their own faith. It’s crazy. Looking around at the world sometimes, how can you believe in God and how can you not? I hope this video makes the point that nobody can be certain about anything. All we can do is hope.”

Insane Clown Posse Pay Tribute To Old School Campy Flicks In ‘Night of The Chainsaw’ Video

Insane Clown Posse Pay Tribute To Old School Campy Flicks In ‘Night of The Chainsaw’ Video

The Insane Clown Posse (ICP) recently released its horror movie inspired music video “Night of the Chainsaw”, the second music video from the duo’s The Mighty Death Pop album, which debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart.

It has been a couple months since ICP’s newest multiple disc, musical project The Mighty Death Pop (MDP) was released, and since then the face-painted duo has been super busy promoting the album, performing on its Hallowicked tour, and, of course, filming multiple, mind blowing music videos. ICP’s first music video entitled “Chris Benoit”, directed by French team The Deka Brothers, caused a little controversy as the subject matter of the song is about the horrific murders and suicide committed by the late pro-wrestler Chris Benoit.  The “Chris Benoit” video was so well made and interesting that it was one of only fifty videos submitted to a category of a Paris based film festival entitled Proclip Festival.  So, how does a band follow-up such a successful video?  Well, it creates another amazing visual story, but this time adds in gore, drugs, and murder!  I guess Insane Clown Posse got that memo because “Night of the Chainsaw” definitely measures up!

In “Night of the Chainsaw”, the second music video off The Mighty Death Pop album, Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J decided to shy away from controversy, but still wanted to give the music industry and Juggalos exactly what they would expect from a pair of Wicked Clowns – shocking, visual horror with a tiny bit of humor.  The “Night of the Chainsaw” video embraces the campy feel of good ole scary movies, having a dark, gritty look, green zombie blood splattering everywhere, and true madness from beginning until end.  Along with numerous zombies and the Insane Clowns themselves, Mark Jury stars in the music video as the chainsaw wielding maniac.  Juggalos may recognize Mark Jury as he played “Dirty Sanchez” in ICP’s 2010 film release Big Money Rustlas. ICP used long time friend of the label, Roy Knyrim of SOTA Productions to shoot and direct the music video, and the final edit was done by Psychopathic Records’ in-house video production team, which proved to be a great team effort as the “Night of the Chainsaw” music video ended up being pretty darn devastating!

Watch it here and decide for yourself…
