Bloodstock Festival 2019 adds FIVE more bands to a already packed lineup
Bloodstock has announced another five more bands for August 2019’s heavy metal weekender.
The Friday headliner on the Sophie Lancaster stage will be Swedish heavy metal trio, Grand Magus. Frontman & guitarist JB commands us;
“Dear Bloodstockers! The Magus returns to the UK to lay waste to your eardrums with metal! We are honoured to be headlining the Sophie Lancaster stage and we will put our hearts and souls into making it something special for all of you. Can't wait to see you all!"
Bringing some thrash to the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Friday are Bay Area five-piece, Death Angel. Frontman Mark Osegueda comments,
“We haven’t played BLOODSTOCK since 2013, when we had to run straight from the stage after a blistering set to a van that took us to the airport to make it to our next show! So we look forward to experiencing this incredible festival properly in all its glory in 2019! It will have been six years since we graced that stage and we have been dying to return. We promise to show you how eager we’ve been to get back to BLOODSTOCK with a pure thrash set fuelled by raw human aggression and passion! Thank you BLOODSTOCK for bringing us back!!!!”
Metal Church step into a main stage slot on Friday. The American heavy metal trailblazers are set to release their twelfth studio album, Damned If You Do on 7th December via Nuclear Blast in the UK. Their 2016 release XI marked the return of former frontman Mike Howe. Mike tells us
“We can’t wait to get over to the UK and bring ‘Damned If You Do’ to our fans overseas. Bloodstock is going to be an incredible time and a show not to be missed.”
Noted for founding both punk group The Dictators and the legendary Manowar, Ross Friedman and his band Ross The Boss join the bill. Having been introduced to Manowar co-founder Joey DeMaio by none other than Ronnie James Dio, it seems only fitting that Ross The Boss will perform on the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Sunday.
Last but not least, a Catton Park favourite, Evil Scarecrow will bring their intergalactic party to the main stage on Saturday.
