There will be special performances by The Stowaways, Mark Morton and We Are the Fallen.
Mark Morton, member of Lamb of God, shares his excitement to perform at ShipRocked stating in a press release, “We are thrilled to announce that Lamb Of God will be appearing on ShipRocked 2022! Live music is coming back in a big way and what better chance to make up for all the concerts you’ve been missing out on over the last year than to set out to sea for 5 days of non-stop rock?! Bring your sunscreen, Pedialyte and lots of Dramamine…Let’s gooooooo!”
In addition to ShipRocked, Lamb of God recently announced they will co-headline a tour with Megadeth. They also covered Bad Brains’ song, “I Against I,” with Fever 333 in April 2021. He Is Legend’s sixth and most recent studio album was praised by mxdwn album reviewer Cait Stoddard, who said “What is amusing about White Bat is how it is filled with a sense of imagination since in some ways some of the songs are storytellers since the lyrics are about scary events like the boogie man coming alive at night. If fans loved the band’s album Few, then they will surely appreciate and enjoy the music White Bat presents to them.”
UPDATE (6/18): ShipRocked has announced the lineup of the Stowaway Band as well as adding some new performers to the 2022 lineup. The Stowaway Band will include Mark Morton as well as H.R.

New additions to the festival include Spiritbox, Nonpoint and grandson, as well as “featured performances” by Drowning Pool, Islander and Otherwise.
