BLOODSTOCK’s early bird tickets are flying out the door in the wake of Halloween’s ROB ZOMBIE headline announcement, but festival HQ aren’t resting on their laurels, they’re announcing more bands.
Bands already announced for 2015 are headliners ROB ZOMBIE and WITHIN TEMPTATION, special guests OPETH, plus CANNIBAL CORPSE, IHSAHN, SEPULTURA, DEATH TA, NUCLEAR ASSAULT and DARK ANGEL. Even more bands will be announced soon, including the third headliner!
British stoner/doom overlords, ORANGE GOBLIN are set for a main stage slot in 2015. Having recently unleashed their eighth studio album, ‘Back From The Abyss’ via Candlelight Records, the band are currently on tour with St Vitus.
Norwegian black metallers 1349 also sign up. With latest studio release ‘Massive Cauldron Of Chaos’, the band have also found time to collaborate with Minnesota’s Surly Brewing Company and launch their own ‘1349 Black Ale’. Check out this video clip with drummer Frost and vocalist Ravn explaining how the whole thing came about:
Also joining the bill at Catton Park are reunited US metalheads ARMORED SAINT. The band are about to hit the studio to record their new album; their first since 2010’s sixth studio album ‘La Raza’. The band are looking forward to their slot at the festival, enthusing “ARMORED SAINT are super excited and honoured to be a part of BLOODSTOCK 2015! And by then we’ll have our new record out! See you all soon!”
BLOODSTOCK will be held at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 6th-9th August 2015. Head to BLOODSTOCK’s official sites at www.facebook.com/bloodstock and www.bloodstock.uk.com. Tickets available right now, but early birds are running low.
