BLOODSTOCK is only four weeks away, and we have another handful of bands – this time for the Jagermeister Stage at Catton Park.
MOTORHEAD guitarist, PHIL CAMPBELL is set to bring new project., the PHIL CAMPBELL ALL STAR BAND to top out the party on Sunday night. Phil comments: “I am very excited to announce that I will be playing Bloodstock on August 11th with my new band, featuring members of Straight Lines, The People The Poet, Dopamine and Attack Attack. It’s gonna be a lot of fun so come along and rock out with us!”
Also stepping onto the Jager stage on Friday are re-formed Nottingham rockers, WRAITH. WRAITH’s success back in the 90’s had them renowned for their signature ‘dual guitar’ attack and saw them touring globally with the likes of UFO, Saxon and Motorhead. Lemmy even sang backing vocals on their debut album, ‘Danger Calling’. They’re now back celebrating 25 years since their inception and brand new material recorded in 2012.
AWAKE BY DESIGN get added to Saturday’s bill. The melodic, modern metal band blend a combination of classic and prog rock, which has seen them garnering attention from the rock press and snapping up support slots with the kindred-spirit likes of Anathema, My Dying Bride, Apocalyptica and Sonata Arctica.
Also jumping in to a Saturday slot are INCASSUM. Having released their debut, ‘Rites of Passage’ late last year, this melodic death metal outfit feature one of the best female vocalists in the genre. Having met at Manchester’s Salford University in 2004, the band have built their reputation on the North West’s live circuit and are excited to make the cut for Bloodstock, enthusing; “We’re thrilled to be chosen to play Bloodstock this year. This is a milestone achievement realised & we can’t wait to get started”.
Rounding out Sunday’s bill are THE BASTARD SONS. Formed in late 2011, the York-based outfit are still fairly new, but have already courted a number of indie labels and have released a debut EP of ‘dirty rock n’ roll’, titled ‘Bones’. Come over to the Jager stage on Sunday to check ‘em out for yourself.
