He said: “I am over the moon stoked to be one of the headliners of Aftershock this year.
“Honestly, this is like a dream come true. We have worked our whole career for moments like this, and cannot wait to be back in Sacramento, where it all began, for the hometown throwdown!
“NorCal better be f****** ready, cause it’s about to go down at Aftershock 2022!”
The Foos and Shinedown will conclude proceedings on the Sunday, and several other acts will also perform over the four days, including Bring Me the Horizon, Evanescence, Lamb of God, and Stone Temple Pilots.
