Bloodstock announces MORE bands! Is there no end to this madness?!

Bloodstock 2016 FebJust announced from Bloodstock HQ are the following… Joining the Ronnie James Dio stage are the recently reformed industrial outfit, Misery Loves Company. The band inform us:

The UK was always special to Misery Loves Co, our very first show outside of Scandinavia was in London and without the support of the British people we probably would have stayed in Scandinavia for ever, listening to ABBA, eating herring and dreaming of the outside world…Misery Loves Co + Britain = a true love story. Now, when we return to the stage, we’re extremely happy to showcase our industrial demons in front of the British crowd once more. Doing a summer of festivals without coming to the UK would have been a failure, so, we can’t wait to come to Bloodstock!

Opening the RJD stage on Saturday are Brit tech metallers, Cambion. As proud Bloodstock alumni (2012/2014), the band are currently at work on their debut album, having released the Virus Extended Edition EP in 2014.

Stepping into the Friday night headline slot on the Sophie Lancaster stage are NWOBHM icons, Diamond Head. The likes of Metallica have often stated that without Diamond Head, they’d probably not exist, such is the Stourbridge band’s influence. Brian and his cohorts are set to release their first album of new material in over 8 years on 22nd April, simply titled Diamond Head.

Also joining Saturday night’s Sophie stage shenanigans are Brit metallers, Krysthla. The band’s debut album, A War Of Souls And Desires, can be snapped up at their Bandcamp.

With Easter weekend also looming, Bloodstock are once again gearing up the website’s very popular Easter Egg hunt, as they’ve done in years past. Will you be one of the lucky winners of a pair of weekend tix with camping?! Click over to the Bloodstock website at on Good Friday 25th March to take part.
