Devildriver and Municipal Waste confirmed for Bloodstock 2013


BLOODSTOCK HQ are excited to announce Californian circle-pit kings, DEVILDRIVER, and thrash metal outfit MUNICIPAL WASTE on to the 2013 bill.

DEVILDRIVER are set to release a brand new album in August 2013, so Bloodstock will be your first opportunity to check out a brand new track or two! DevilDriver’s firebrand frontman, Dez Fafara is looking forward to next year’s fest, commenting; “DevilDriver is fucking stoked to be coming to Bloodstock!! We are thrilled to playing alongside our good friends in Lamb Of God, and no doubt the weekend is going to be insane! Grab a ticket and come get in the pit! DevilDriver won’t let ya down!” Check out this section from the band’s little-seen ‘warts n’ all’ documentary, ‘You May Know Us From The Stage’ (catch up with the remaining parts on YouTube). This instalment features a cameo appearance from Lamb of God’s Mark Morton.

Die-hard road warriors, MUNICIPAL WASTE are also looking forward to joining their Richmond, VA, hometown buddies & Saturday night headliners, Lamb Of God at Catton Park in August 2013. Ryan Waste enthused, “We are bloody chuffed to rock the BOA once again. It was my favourite UK festival to date and now that King Diamond and Accept have been added, I’m more excited than ever!” Check out the band’s first animated video, for the track ‘You’re Cut Off’, taken from their fifth and most recent disc, ‘The Fatal Feast’ at: Released in April through Nuclear Blast, the intergalactic, cannibalistic record is choc-full of ‘Waste trademarks: aggressive headbang-inducing riffs, tongue-in-cheek humour, and meaning extracted from the absurd. Besides their musical voyage into space, Municipal Waste are currently rippin’ up tarmac across the USA with Napalm Death and Exhumed.
