Chelsea Grin vocalist says he won't play shows where vaccination is required
Chelsea Grin (and Darko) vocalist Tom Barber appears to be taking a vaccine stance similar to that of rock legend Eric Clapton, who recently said that he will not perform any concerts where attendees must be vaccinated against Covid-19.
However, rather than singling out venues, Barber says that he refuses to perform in any states or countries that mandate vaccinations for concertgoers. Communicating via an Instagram story (see below), Barber had the following to say yesterday:
"If your country or state requires me to be vaccinated to play a show I will not play the show."
Although Barber certainly didn't mince words, it's unclear if his Chelsea Grin bandmates are on the same page.
It's worth noting that Chelsea Grin are scheduled to tour Europe and the UK this winter, meaning it's quite possible that Barber's resolve (with regard to vaccine mandates) will be tested.

Thank you for standing up for the rights of deathcore autists everywhere, you f*cking shit heal
He also said that if you are in a statethat requires to wear a seatbelt while driving he will not drive your roads you sheep... people die wearing seatbelts too so their not 100% effective.
^You just made that guys same joke, but a worse version of it. Good work.
Lmao what a clown. Looks like they won't be playing UK or Europe then 😂😂
I don't think McDonald's requires you to be vaccinated yet so he can still drop fries for a living.
Dude with a full neck tattoo has stupid thoughts. f*cking shocked.
hope every country requires this soon so this d bag will never get to play a show again
when they play a show that has no vaccination mandate and the turn out is only 12 people but it's hard to tell if covid played a part or that's normal business for them.
It's to everyone's benefit that he doesn't play any shows at all ever because his band f*cking sucks.
Don't worry Tom Tom, big gov will soon be knocking on your door to give you the jab, as well as every other retard that denies this pandemic. Get covid and die g*y.
Oh no, what will the world do without Chelsea Grin!?!
I miss the old days of this site, where commenters weren't beta cucks
Government is out of control. Next thing you know they'll be giving out identification numbers at birth and requiring some sort of card with your picture on it to identify you to drive and shit.
Leftists are horrible. They are super-spreaders but they are also cult members who are divorced from reality.
LMAO Twittertards and progressive douchebags have taken over this shoutbox because of course they bElIeVe tHe sCiEncE and overreact to everything in their pathetic, hollow lives, including a virus with a blatantly high survival rate. Enjoy your sugar water jabs and your return to "normalcy" that won't contribute to climate change or racism or whatever you're whining about otherwise.
"Don't worry Tom Tom, big gov will soon be knocking on your door to give you the jab, as well as every other retard that denies this pandemic. Get covid and die gay." Huh, I thought that the people that took this pandemic seriously also usually don't use homophobic and ableist slurs.
Antivaxxers are just afraid of needles so they've concocted several conspiracies to hide the fact that they're mentally 6 years old.
After Lollapalooza, Obama's party, and the wide-open southern border; you are a real Lambgoat liberal if you think "the variant" is going to hurt you and kill you.
The sad thing is that Proud Boys could make really good use of the average Lambgoater. Strong, smart, charismatic, aggressive. They would be good leaders for sure. But in the end it's up to the person whether or not they are willing to be a part of something that makes a difference. They have to think hard but I think many of them will make a wise choice.
Perfect. I would do the same if I was him. Get in trouble, be brave. Speak up!
If you don't wear a mask you are a bitch pussy who deserved to get her ass beat
If you don't want to play anymore just retire and quit. Sit at home and keep smoking weed all the time. Dude has a martyr complex like most vocalist do.
Mask = Muzzle Vaccine = Vagina China Flu = Communist f*ckery
I shouldn't be surprised at the sheer number of retarded right wingers on this site. I just kinda can't wait until they catch COVID at a backyard wrestling event with their 15 year old cousin/girlfriend. Careful loading those paintball guns, piss babies.
People still with stretched ears in the year of our lord 2021
"I shouldn't be surprised at the sheer number of retarded right wingers on this site. I just kinda can't wait until they catch COVID at a backyard wrestling event with their 15 year old cousin/girlfriend. Careful loading those paintball guns, piss babies." Your black God Obama was throwing a huge maskless party, you retard. Go back to watching cuck porn and fawning over fat, sweaty, infected sluts on hate5six
only chance to make money in the last 1.5 years and you shoot yourself in the foot like this lmaoooo
do the incel f*cks on LG only comment during Tucker Carlson commercial breaks?
rofl at the aforementioned retarded right wingers thinking that we give a shit about Obama. It's hilarious that you also seem to care about maskless events when it's not a shitheel like yourself doing it. Pick a side and keep seething, dorks.
Oh thank god. I was afraid their trash band might play more shows. Glad they got that concern taken care of.
Too many liberal crybabies in this comment section. Bow before your faucian god you cucks. The NEO is here and you're all too blind to see it. Tom has a right to not get vaccinated just like you all have the right to comment hate and other bullshit. The metal community needs to f*ck off.
The right-wingers on this website should get off Lambgoat and get some lube and dildo's ready for tonight's viewing of WWE Monday Night raw.
Tom has a right to be unvaccinated and to get his ass beat in a parking garage
My observation is that all Metal heads are liberals, hardcore kids are conservatives, and punks are anarchist and show both sides.
Liberals put ideology above everything. That's why they "don't care about Obama" not wearing a mask but care deeply about YOU wearing a mask. They are in a cult. It's all ideology and no reality. When confronted with their poor choices, these liberal immediately descend into profanity and name-calling. No critical or analytical thinking at all. These people need help.
Good, we need every band to do this. I'm not sure why its so confusing for some but just because there aren't mandates doesn't mean you cant still wear a mask or get the vax if you want to. It should never be required and more bands need to grow a pair and make this type of statement. When did everyone become such a pushover willing to forego all rational thought and just be told what to do?
Jesus f*ck, please can we keep politics out of metal in general… wrong or right… Tom… shut👏The👏f*ck👏Up
"Liberals put ideology above everything. That's why they "don't care about Obama" not wearing a mask but care deeply about YOU wearing a mask. They are in a cult. It's all ideology and no reality. When confronted with their poor choices, these liberal immediately descend into profanity and name-calling. No critical or analytical thinking at all. These people need help." Absolutely correct. They've handed out any critical thinking they had to the media. And they genuinely do need help, you're right. Everything is subjective and open to interpretation as long it's their subjectivity and their interpretation. Their brains are incapable of understanding contradiction. They know deep down that they've been duped and humiliated, that's why they scream at us to wear masks... instead of bettering themselves they want to drag everybody else down to their warped, self loathing, weak level.
Oh no, where will I turn to for my mediocre metal now!?
also if you're going to throw the "Devil Horns" tuck your thumb in, you f*cking retard. enjoy playing to the collective crew known as Jerry's Kids.
No metal head ever supported Trump, it was only the hardcore crowd that supported and supports him today.
anonymous 2 hours ago After Lollapalooza, Obama's party, and the wide-open southern border; you are a real Lambgoat liberal if you think "the variant" is going to hurt you and kill you.
You'd have to be a GOP Goater to believe any of that, your heads so full of shit I'm not surprised though
^^^^^ More profanity, name-calling, and bad grammar from a "progressive."
The Gaping GOP Goaters, has a ring to it. Republicans like to pretend they have a clean mouth but they have dirty hearts and dirtier souls, those close to them know how common child abuse and domestic strife is in Republican households. Fact is, it's not considered a problem among Conservatives. It's simply a cultural choice. But how long do we let child abuse continue at the hands of Republicans?
Can't wait to get covid and die. So I won't have to see this shit anymore.
Already knew what this comment section was going to look like before I got here. Not disappointed 😂😂. What a clown.
What about those places that mandate you show an "age passport" to get a drink. F those poses.
You know what's really shitty? Establishments that won't let me eat peanuts. Why are you controlling what I put in my body?
Awesome. Anybody that supports the requirement is a facist.
" The right-wingers on this website should get off Lambgoat and get some lube and dildo's ready for tonight's viewing of WWE Monday Night raw." Typical leftist projecting their homosexual desires upon others. You dorks will continue to believe what you see in the "news" and live in a fear of a virus with a 99% survival rate.
I'm against age restrictions. We already have public intoxication laws. Liberals don't understand this because they have no values. It's all ideology.
Prostate cancer has a 99% survival rate. If any of you retarded right wingers got skin cancer, you'd be sobbing and soliciting go fund me donations because you work at 7/11 and hospitals don't accept Monster Energy as payment.
Everything I've learned of the world I've learned from Lambgoat and Infowars.
Shout out to the Lambgoat snowflake. It's so progressive to call people "retarded."
Believing that vaccines work isn't "progressive". It's literally how we got rid of polio you f*cking morons. Stop just hating smart things because infowars tells you to.
^ are you implying that we didn't successfully eradicate polio with a vaccine?
I'm not taking life lessons from a weirdo on Lambgoat.
By weirdo you misspoke. I think you meant a random Alpha.
lots of bigbrains out today. stay mad maga-cucks. daddy trump is definitely coming to save you this time.
These leftists are the same people who think Chris Cuomo and Hunter Biden did nothing wrong.
Once Trump is back in on 8/18 you are going to be in a world of hurt
It's probably the same dude writing comments on this post talking to himself. Something something. Obama
About f*cking time I saw a band say no to this along with madball.
Madball, Chelsea Grin, In Flames bassist, Soulfly guitarist.. pretty healthy and strong list
I have a structured settlement and I need cash NOW
"Lambgoat" more like "Room Temperature IQ Reactionary Comment Aggregator" am I right fellas??
Takes balls to actually say you don't agree with medical tyranny these days. Crazy times. Good for him for standing up.
Props to him for standing up to Medical Tyranny and authoritarianism. f*ck leftism, f*ck Fauci, and f*ck progressive politics.
Sooooo this is a positive article about someone choosing what personal choice they make with their own body, right?
The way I see it, people who refuse vaccinations are American heroes. The world is facing an overpopulation problem. We need more people willfully dying for the sake of a nonsensical, long dead ideology. Mel Gibson said it best, FrEeEeEeeeeEDoMmm
This is a poor misguided soul that will be lost to COVID
Imagine joining the band in 2018 and thinking you control the band and what they do. You've toured with the band less than you've been sitting on your ass collecting government paychecks.
Gotta love these dingbat conservatives. You shitheels think saving a few bucks on your tax return is more important than the welfare of the country you claim to be oh so devoted to. You are a people so dense, so utterly swamp-minded, that you fear socialism when you were literally born into a mixed economy. You praise individualism and work-ethic, while hiding behind religion to guide your moral compass. If you don't want to be vaccinated, fine. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
lmao at wanting to beat others up for not getting vaccinated. Boston Beatdown 2021 is going to wild

Soon they will run out of ventilators and this problem will solve itself.
I'm glad this place is turning into ThePRP and metalsucks. I just can't get enough "Covid/rock" news.
The irony is that your all taking The Trump Vaccine.
Gotta love the dingbat "liberals" commenting on this post that think it is impacting them if someone else doesn't get vaccinated….. News flash: Corona isn't going away, but if you're vaccinated, your less likely to have a serious reaction to getting it…. You're safe…. Idiots
^I know I'll be fine, I just happen to give a shit about other people getting a now-preventable virus and potentially dying or suffering permanent damage from it. Is it so hard to believe that people care about others?
Attention all aspiring vocalists: Chelsea Grin fill-in announcement forthcoming
This metal head supports trump and Tom, sleepy joe can suck eggs.
Is it really a surprise 8Kun twats have migrated to Lambgoat? The ultimate irony of calling it "Trump's vaccine" yet fighting it every step of the way and claiming Covid isn't real. Which f*cking one is it? Where's that August reinstatement? Postponed again? Q just can't get it right. Wait Q (Watkins) hasn't posted since November so you guys just make the shit up on your own now.
I fuccon missed anonymous commenting so much - you guys are full tilt entertainment. In the Gummo kind of way.
The crybaby liberal that is 74lbs overweight thinks a vaccine from a billion dollar corrupt pharma company was designed to keep them 'healthy'. lol. You people are truly f*cktard, idiots that have never read a history book or seen a Hitler documentary on the shitty History channel. Go get out of breath and nearly pass out walking up a flight of stairs with your cuck masks on.
I remember when i associated metal with a sense of questioning authority figures and building your own path in life. By reading the comments, i can tell that was pure fantasy, bunch of weak, brainless soy fueled weaklings that obey orders with no question, and consume information without retort. I think this band sucks, but at least they have a man in their ranks.
I remember when I associated hardcore with free thought. Now I see all my hardcore family turned into sheep that blindly follow Fox News, Trump family, liars in general. Free thought means determine the truth. If the truth is majority opinion so be it. I would rather swim with the current in a clean river than swim upstream (blind counterculture) in a stream of shit.
It's totally punk rock to not prevent yourself from a potentially lethal virus! Y'all are absolute f*cking morons. I'm surprised you're not outside playing in traffic and sticking forks in light sockets. Y'all are worse than f*ckin Instagram antivax moms.
There is no "potentially lethal virus", you dimwit. I suppose, your tv tells you that men are women and women are men, and that gender is just a social construct. I mean, the only reason females become "females" is because they're told to wear pink. If not then they become Joe Rogan sized badasses who want to hang from construction sites and do manual labour 6 days a week. f*cking retards like you will believe anything because you have zero value. You sit there screaming at your tv to tell you how your body feels and how you're meant to think and act. You deserve to be muzzled forever, being injected 3 times a month, and being drip fed by a social worker, you loser.
This is the "science expert" on "health" liberals like you believe: https://www.hhs.gov/about/leadership/rachel-levine.html
"I'm against age restrictions." Sounds libertarian.
" f*cking retards like you will believe anything because you have zero value. You sit there screaming at your tv to tell you how your body feels and how you're meant to think and act. You deserve to be muzzled forever …" I like how you are talking shit on people supposedly copying things from tv but in reality the majority of people know the science of coronavirus and understand reality. They don't need to watch it on tv because their neighbors and co-workers have had it. After all this shit has been going on for 18 months. It's ironic that your so called brave independent viewpoint is manufactured by an oligarchic elite with an agenda to stay in power and sow confusion. You are the follower. The shit you say is just repeated from pod casts and websites engineered to make you think you are a thinker. In reality you are a puppet, a sheep, you deny reality and live in a falsehood. You contribute nothing unique, you are worthless and after you die will be replaced. Just a #.
"It's ironic that your so called brave independent viewpoint is manufactured by an oligarchic elite with an agenda to stay in power and sow confusion" You're absolutely deluded. You're accusing us of what you're doing. The "elites" (as you call them) run the New York Times, Facebook, Google, CNN, FOX. They're the ones pushing your "science".
Please daddy government, make me take the mystery injection from GloboPharma! Fight the power by giving GloboPharma trillions of dollars!
Imagine listening to Joe Rogan and Alex Jones podcasts and thinking you are smart and enlightened. You can't think for yourself so you need someone to tell you what to think at all times. The majority of us don't consume any of that media. We live our life and think for ourselves. It doesn't take a genius to see how deluded your perspective is. You wonder why no one respects you. Or why everyone rolls their eyes. Or why no one wants to be around you. It's because you brainwashed yourself with bullshit. It's not because of CNN and FOX News, it's because you are an asshole, an idiot, lack morals, lack ethics, tell lies, have no self discipline, and your whole life is out of control. It's not because of some outside force, it's because you are a f*ck up with nothing to contribute besides regurgitating bullshit like all the other mindless robots.
Imagine attempting to use anecdotal evidence as an actual dataset. "hurr Cletus, I keep hearin' bout this whole cancer thing but I ain't ever got it so it must be fake!" You're all inbred pieces of shit.
Imagine getting cheated on by your wife who sells oils and works as a glorified janitor in a hospital. Imagine other people taking her as an authoritative source on medical and science knowledge.
Steroids are actually good for you in large quantities
The people first in line to get vaccinated would be the first in line to jump off a cliff like the collective lemmings they are if you programmed them well enough. Also, most of the people dying of COVID are landwhales anyways that don't take care of themselves and whine about their families not falling in line on Twitter, these people are a strain on our resources yet we don't question them why their are others starving and/or in poverty that could have well benefited from the 15 cheeseburgers they constantly shovel down their guts. Obesity will always be around even when COVID goes away, don't need a virus with a 99% survival rate to tell you to lay off the sweets.
"The people first in line to get vaccinated would be the first in line to jump off a cliff like the collective lemmings they are if you programmed them well enough." cool thought, man.
Comprehensive cheeseburger redistribution is an admirable political platform.
Imagine attempting to use anecdotal evidence as an actual dataset. "hurr Cletus, I keep hearin' bout this whole cancer thing but I ain't ever got it so it must be fake!" You're all inbred pieces of shit. Comparing Covid to Cancer is proof of how brainwashed you are by your tranny and pedo activists, and youre completely oblivious to it. You have to be inbred to make that comparison. Cancer can be pinpointed and isolated. You can see the cells mutate. Even your "scientists" keep on telling you that they haven't isolated Covid because it's not its own virus, they're just diagnosing you with it if you have symptoms of a flu, or if you cough, or if you breath.
If you lined yourself up for the vaccine you literally have shit for brains and have never whipped out any All Out War booklets and read along to any of their songs. You deserve to have your genes manipulated and have your organs replicate spike protiens for the next year and a half. Besides being obese and never working out one day of your life, tell me another reason why you have kidney failure at the ripe age of 32?
^can't tell if this is satire, but if it is it's really f*ckin' spot on
Leftists can't admit that they got suckered by the democrats.
Republicans are all closet repressed homosexuals and actual pedophiles in a giant pyramid scheme
"Yeah it's actually like statistically almost certainly 99% fat losers who got the virus and deserve to die and died anyway so it's fine and I'm not at all worried lol nah I'm not stupid and I actually workout literally daily with a marine who said I have great form."
hope the band finds a new singer, this dude is whack job
The comments on FB are embarrassing Congrats all of you for playing the divisionist politics game. Literally playing us and them, a very very dangerous game
Good on him. f*ck the vaccine and every dumbass pushing it. Yeah let's get a vaccine where we can still contract and spread covid, so many sheep out here it's ridiculous. Even Germany has talked about Quarantine camps…camps and Germany, that surely hasn't happened before has it? Good on Tom and f*ck the vaccine 😂
" Congrats all of you for playing the divisionist politics game. Literally playing us and them, a very very dangerous game" It's pretty simple. If you spread misinformation and harmful opinions you are a dipshit. All republicans are doing that right now. Nothing divisive about saying that. Apparently only Trump can "tell it straight" and be applauded? Yeah right. Get f*cked.
homie is literally just spitting facts. Mr Chelsea Tom said that if your state or country requires a vaccination in order for him to perform, that he will not perform. and he's right. he will literally be stopped. but I have to say.. i do love all the pathetic rebounds who are probably taking money from the government on assistance programs spewing the whole "dOn'T bElIeVe ThE gOvErNmEnT" rhetoric. 10/10 entertainment. I'm not a robot
Enough of his bullshit. Kick him and bring back Alex, and while they're at it bring back the other 2 guitarists or at least find someone that can play those parts. They've literally done nothing in 3 years.
covid isn't a disease or virus, its a stupid cold. Vaccine not needed. Its just for depopulation reasons.
Who is still excited about Chelsea grin? Their core fan base is aged into their 30s now and probably not too shocked and amazed by one chug deathcore anymore
He says this now still probably under the protection of mommy and daddy's money. Most vocalists in bands are losers anyways. Wait till the tit runs dry and you start your prosperous career hanging sheetrock. That'll really stick it to the man, bro.
I support Tom 100%. All of you that talk shit, please take the death jabs ....
Todd Jones here. Can confirm, that was Tom and also he will never be one of us.
Bringing the literal sense of death to the shit genre of deathcore
Their 6 & a half ticket purchasers per city will be so disappointed
Tom just got even hotter, regardless of the Snoopy ears!
Metal used to mean something... ANTI- ESTABLISHMENT! Now all you f'n poosy millennial posers whine and bitch when you know NOTHING about life, you indoctrinated, brainwashed, f'n parasites!! You're NOT metal!!
So everyone mad about a fact that a grown ass man made a decision to not play shows that forcibly want him to get a vaccination. Y'all commenters are weird as hell for being mad about that. Y'all are acting like the vaccine abolishes covid, it doesn't the only thing vaccines does is give you antibodies to fight it off and make the symptoms less harsh. Y'all sound like trump and Biden at the debate. Childish as hell arguing about what someone decisions are . If he doesn't want to play a show that goes against his rights as a human being so be it. Who are we to call someone dumb about there decision.
It's sooo metal to simp for the government and trillion dollar big pharma. 99.98% survival rate for an alleged killer deadly super virus... Better inject myself with unknown chemicals. pushed by government officials with a history of integrity and transparency with their citizens LMAO You gullible idiots need to flush yourselves
