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!
K-Lacura – Hobgoblin New Blood Stage, Saturday
Simple things first – Where are you guys from?
How long have you been playing together as a band?
We’ve been musically involved for eleven years, some of the band have been friends or acquaintances prior to the first meet up.
Where does the name of the band come from?
The name of the band was loosely based on some silly Portuguese game show that the singer had seen while abroad. It was kind of a Beadle’s About meets Jack Ass themed show.
Describe your music. What makes you unique?
We have similarities to Parkway Drive and Soilwork (extremely excited to see these again); fast paced and energetic. We also have a good looking bass player.
What’s your live show like? Why are people going to watch you instead of another band?
Having been together eleven years we are very comfortable with each other on stage. We are getting on a bit but still very energetic.
Have you been to Bloodstock before? What did you think?
Some of the band have been, and categorically said it was an epic experience.
Did you enter M2TM thinking you could win it? Which region did you win?
We entered M2TM in 2009 with Simon Hall at Nuneatons’ Queen Hall. We’ve played previous years in different locations from Reading, Oxford, and Nuneaton, every year we’d hope for a shot, but never had the mentality that we could win this, simply because there are a lot of amazingly talent acts that enter. We entered the Oxford region this year.
What sort of setlist can we expect?
We are very proud of the songs in the set, they are all energetic and hopefully represent K-Lacura’s personalities.
Which main stage band do you most hope you’re not squished up next to so you can see them play?
Luckily we have our time slot, and know we won’t be in this position!
What are you working on at the moment?
New tracks so we can finalise the ones that’ll make it onto the album we hope to release by the end of the year.
What’s the wildest thing you’ve seen or done on tour?
PC answer, we haven’t seen or done anything wild or incriminating whilst on tour, wink wink nudge nudge.
Jager, Hobgoblin Ale, Kraken, Kingstone Press Cider, Kaltenberg Beer or Bulleit Bourbon? And, yes, we’ll be counting all the votes!
Kraken and Hobgoblin… pint of.
