LESS THAN 100 DAYS TO GO! BLOODSTOCK ADD SEVEN MORE BANDS!

 

BLOODSTOCK 2018 is looking to be the biggest yet, with tickets moving fast and set to sell out again in advance.  If you want to join us at Catton Park in August, don’t delay in grabbing your tickets! The countdown is now on, with just 93 days to go!  The remaining Friday/Saturday/Sunday slots on the Ronnie James Dio main stage and Sophie Lancaster 2nd stage rack up as follows. Thursday’s bill, the Jagermeister stage bill and of course the New Blood stage bill are all yet to come.

 

Adding some doomy melodeath to proceedings, NAILED TO OBSCURITY (https://www.facebook.com/nailedtoobscurity ) land an early main stage slot on Saturday. Curious about this German five-piece?  Listen to the song ‘Protean’ from their ‘King Delusion’ album, released last year by Apostasy Records: https://youtu.be/aURv2uR9-yM .

 

Everyone knows Sweden does metal well, and these guys are no exception.  Prog metallers EVERGREY (https://www.facebook.com/Evergrey/ ) grab themselves a main stage spot on Sunday morning.  They’ve ten albums of material under their belts, but get up to speed with their latest collection, ‘The Storm Within’, with ‘In Orbit’ at https://youtu.be/XKNg2dcO94k . The song features guest vocals from none other than Floor Jansen of BLOODSTOCK’s Sunday headliners, Nightwish!

 

Brit crew MONUMENT (https://www.facebook.com/monumentuk ) have the honour of opening the main stage on Sunday!  On a mission to bring back classic British heavy metal - citing influences like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Sabbath, Saxon, Rainbow, Thin Lizzy, and Led Zep - it’s no wonder Roar Records picked up these London headbangers!  Feast your eyes on their castle-shot video for ‘Lionheart’ at https://youtu.be/tijEVDun0dg .

 

Welsh death metallers SODOMIZED CADAVER (https://www.facebook.com/SodomizedCadaver ) play the Sophie Lancaster stage on Friday. Last seen at BLOODSTOCK on the Jagermeister stage in 2016, we’re delighted to welcome these old school metalheads back in a bigger slot.  Not familiar with them yet? Head over to their BandCamp page at https://sodomizedcadaver-isp.bandcamp.com/  and take a listen.

 

Making their BLOODSTOCK debut on Friday’s Sophie stage are South Africa’s DEITY’S MUSE (https://www.facebook.com/deitysmuse ).  Bringing their unique blend of alt rock, metal and prog all the way from Johannesburg, these guys are are an absolute juggernaut live.  Vocalist Wayne tells us, "I nearly choked on my coffee the morning we found out that we're included in this year's gargantuan BLOODSTOCK lineup.  To say that we're excited about the opportunity is a gross understatement.  We can't wait to share our music with the BOA festival goers in August. This is literally a dream come true for us four weirdo South Africans.  We're salivating at the prospect!" Check ‘em out at https://youtu.be/Dcta6hd98mI .

 

LIMB (https://www.facebook.com/LimbTheBand/ ) earn a Saturday slot on the Sophie stage.  If you like your classic rock served up with a side of stoner doom, these guys could be your new favourite band.  Watch their sci-fi inspired video for ‘Dawn Raiders’ at https://youtu.be/aKtj8i-wVTI .  They enthuse, “We can't believe what a great honour it is to be asked to play this amazing festival!  Our labelmates Vodun & Black Moth have both played incredible sets on the Sophie stage and now we get our chance to join them in stamping our name into the amazing BLOODSTOCK story.  We’re ready to make some ungodly noise for you all!”

 

Also playing the Sophie stage on Saturday are apocalyptic doomsters WITH THE DEAD (https://www.facebook.com/withthedead ).  Formed by ex-Napalm Death/Cathedral and Electric Wizard/Serpentine Path members, you may just recognise the unmistakable vocals of Lee Dorrian.  Get a sample via track ‘Isolation’ at: https://youtu.be/etLfQIgHzGY .  Might we suggest, one not to be missed!

 

METAL 2 THE MASSES, our programme to support grass roots metal has reached its Grand Finals stage this month, with 31 events happening regionally to pick the best new bands to play BLOODSTOCK’s New Blood stage.  Glasgow and Belfast’s finals happen this Friday 11th May, more locations follow from there.  M2TM is the biggest initiative in UK & Ireland (not forgetting one-off locations in Norway and Poland) to not only support regional venues, but also give local bands a chance to win a slot at the festival, an opportunity to network and aspire to the winning acts that have gone before them.  As well as that chance to play this year’s event, there’s a bigger national prize pool opportunity where selected finals winners will be chosen to open BLOODSTOCK’s Sophie Stage in 2019, play a slot at Slovenia’s Metaldays Festival 2019, win recording time at Parlour Studios with Russ Russell, along with a raft of additional sponsor prizes.  Attending punters aren’t left out either, as they could walk away with a ticket to this year’s festival or any number of free giveaways on the night. The Finals are rolling around the country right now so be sure to get down and show support!

What’s more, our travel partners, BIG GREEN COACH have just added Cambridge and Norwich to their list of departure cities due to customer demand!  More details below. On to the bands...

 

We’re excited to welcome hotly-tipped Texan thrash squad POWER TRIP to the Saturday main stage bill!  Having just wrapped on one of the best metal package tours of recent years with Trivium, Code Orange, and Venom Prison, POWER TRIP’s incendiary live show is not to be missed!  Are they the future of modern thrash?!

Progressive black metal collective, A FOREST OF STARS also join the Sophie bill on Saturday.   The band, who describe themselves as ‘appointing a fusion of black metal, romanticism, the occult, psychedelia, folk and the improprieties of madness into one unsightly whole’ (awesome!) are hard at work on a new album due later this year.  In the meantime, check out their fabulous video for ‘Gatherer Of The Pure’ - https://youtu.be/7ZrKbecv8qc .

 

Grabbing a Sunday Sophie stage spot are hotly tipped trio, ALIEN WEAPONRY.  Hailing all the way from Waipu, New Zealand, they blend hardcore and thrash influences with their Maori heritage to create a sound uniquely their own.  Teenage brothers Henry and Lewis de Jong joined by Ethan Trembath on bass, the trio recently signed to Napalm Records and are readying their debut album, ‘Tū’ for release in June.  Check out the ‘Holding My Breath’ video for their first single to be sung entirely in English rather than their native Maori language - https://youtu.be/vDTdyGItPQ8 .

METAL 2 THE MASSES, our programme to support grass roots bands reaches its culmination this month with 31 Grand Finals kicking off regionally.  The first is in Coventry on the 28th April, then events roll out around the country. M2TM is the biggest initiative in UK & Ireland (not forgetting one-off cities in Norway and Poland) to choose the bands to play on our Newblood Stage.  The programme not only supports regional venues, but also gives local bands an opportunity to network and aspire to winning acts that have gone before them. As well as being in with a chance of playing this year’s festival, there’s a bigger national prize pool opportunity where selected winners will be chosen to open BLOODSTOCK’s Sophie Stage in 2019, play a slot at Slovenia’s Metaldays Festival 2019, win recording time at Parlour Studios with Russ Russell, along with a raft of additional sponsor prizes.  Attending punters aren’t left out either, as they could walk away with a ticket to this year’s festival or any number of free giveaways on the night. The Finals kick off at venues around the country very soon so be sure to get down and show support!

 

We're pleased to report that this year BLOODSTOCK is taking part in the 'Drastic on Plastic' campaign, a pledge we're supporting alongside 60 other independent festivals to try and rid festivals of non-recyclable plastics within the next 3 years.  As a festival catering to a large younger demographic, we've a duty of care to lead by example and promote the importance of not using plastic at festivals.  This year we're opting in to the 'Final Straw' initiative, ridding the festival of plastic straws, meaning none of our bars or retailers are permitted to use these on site.  Moving forward we aim to stop the use of single-use plastics on site by 2021, this will include plastic bar cups and drink bottles. 

It is estimated that around 8.5 billion plastic straws are thrown away in the UK alone each year, adding further to the 150 million tonnes of plastic waste current floating around the Earth's oceans. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation predicts that by 2050 there will be more plastic items in the world's oceans than fish. Already each year around one million birds and 100,000 sea mammals die due to eating or becoming entangled in plasticwaste. Recently, the British government announced plans to ban the sale of plastic straws, drink stirrers, and plastic-stemmed cotton buds in England entirely.  The ban is part of the government's 25 year plan to eliminate avoidable plastic waste, and follows the mandatory 5p charge placed on single-use carrier bags in shops and the ban on plastic microbeads.  It's estimated that the UK uses 38.5 million plastic bottles a day, a shocking 91% of which are non-recyclable. Please support us in this endeavour by being more mindful of the single use plastics you bring on to site and perhaps think about purchasing reusable steel containers for your consumables.  Every little helps!
