As we cruise in to Christmas, Bloodstock’s rolling out some early treats! Three more bands for your delectation, plus on-sale details for the VIP tickets.
First up for a main stage add are Fear Factory! Hot from their 20th Anniversary tour for their classic album Demanufacture this week, the band will be playing their Demanufacture set one more time at Bloodstock! If you missed it, don’t miss out this time!
In a UK festival exclusive, US prog-metallers Symphony X will also descend on Catton Park to treat Bloodstock’s faithful to some choice cuts from Underworld, their current ninth studio album out now via Nuclear Blast, plus various favourites from their 20-year-plus career.
Frontman Russell Allen says:
Symphony X is honoured to play a festival made by the fans for the fans! Come with us to the Underworld my brothers and sisters! Our journey awaits… See you all there!
Get ready for an obnoxiously good time with re-booted British thrash outfit, Acid Reign who are set to headline the Sophie Lancaster Stage on Saturday! Back in action after a lengthy hiatus, the band kicked back into gear touring with Xentrix this year and dropped new single “Plan Of The Damned” via their official site.
Frontman Howard Smith informs us:
We are ALL thrilled to be headlining the Sophie Stage this year. I played it in 2012 as a comedian, did a guest spot with Re-Animator last year and all that has served to make me even more keen to finally tread those hallowed boards ‘for real’. It’s things like this that make being in a band worth while! This is the big one, see you there!
