BLOODSTOCK are thrilled to announce that French super-heavyweights and Metal Hammer Golden God Award ‘Best Live Band’ nominees, GOJIRA, have been added to the Saturday line-up.
Still basking in plaudits for current album, ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’, the earthquake-inducing four-piece stole the show on the recent 2013 Jagermeister UK tour. Frontman Joe Duplantier enthuses, “Hey everybody! We are super excited to play Bloodstock again this year, we had an amazing time back in 2010. Looking forward to seeing all of our UK fans again and kicking your asses!” Sure to be one of the live highlights of the weekend, cast your eyes over this festival clip of fan-favourite track ‘Flying Whales’ and see the treat that Bloodstock’s in for on the Youtube video below:
