As ever, we’re going to try and cover every single Jäger, New Blood and SOPHIE stage band before Bloodstock kicks off on August 10th. Your chance to check them out and start planning which bands to get there early for!
Trust us when we tell you that this is bound to result in some frustrating clashes because, as ever, there are some great bands on these three stages.
Our thanks to all the bands for taking the time out to answer our questions!
Bossk – Sophie Lancaster Stage, Sunday
Simple things first – where are you guys from?
Originally all from Ashford in Kent.
How long have you been playing together as a band?
We formed in 2005.
Where does the name of the band come from?
Bossk is a Star Wars bounty hunter.
Describe your music. What makes you unique?
Our sound is combination of things, melody, walls of sound, ambience and experimentation.
What’s your live show like? Why are people going to watch you instead of another band?
Smokey, loud and hopefully engaging.
Have you played Bloodstock before? If so, when?
Yes, in 2013.
How/when did you find out that you’d be playing the SOPHIE stage?
The promoter contacted us and asked us to play. We had a great time in 2013 so we said yes.
What sort of setlist can we expect?
Songs from Audio Noir.
Which main stage band do you most hope you’re not clashing with so you can see them play?
On our day I’m not too fussed about the bands we clash with. Not really my kind of music. We will all be going to watch Venom Prison though.
What are you working on at the moment?
Hopefully the beginning of a new record.
What’s the wildest thing you’ve seen or done on tour?
I have no idea what you’d consider wild.
Jager, Hobgoblin Ale, Kraken, Kingstone Press Cider, Kaltenberg Beer or Bulleit Bourbon? And, yes, we’ll be counting all the votes!
