ROADRUNNER UNITED Is Teasing Something For Next Week

For Roadrunner's 40th anniversary.

Roadrunner United

Roadrunner United was a project headed up by Roadrunner Records in 2005 to celebrate the label's 25th anniversary. The project released an album called The All-Star Sessions and featured 18 tracks overseen by four "team captains" – Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison, Trivium frontman Matt Heafy, Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares, and Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn – with performances from musicians like Glen Benton of Deicide, King Diamond, Dani Filth of Cradle Of Filth, Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth, and Peter Steele of Type O Negative among a ton of others. Now it seems like maybe there's a second one on the way? Or at least something tangentially related to the project.

Both Roadrunner Records and Roadrunner Records UK have posted teasers on their Twitter relating to the Roadrunner United: The Concert release (also in 2005) with the hashtag #Roadrunner40. So maybe there's a show announcement coming to celebrate the anniversary? Or a second Roadrunner United? Maybe even a show, given they're using the Roadrunner United: The Concert logo?

Weirdly, both the North American and UK Twitters tease the date "X XI MMXXII," which could be either October 10 or November 11 depending on which country you're in. But given The All-Star Sessions came out on October 11, 2005, we're guessing the former. So I guess we'll see what's going on in a few days!
