Bloodstock have announced more bands for the Sophie Lancaster stage! Symphonic metal band Delain has been announced as the Friday night headliner, who said:
“We are really excited to perform at the awesome BLOODSTOCK Festival for the very first time this summer! Having written our previous records’ title track ‘We Are The Others’ about Sophie Lancaster, it will be an extra important and special occasion for us to headline the Sophie Lancaster stage and meet up with our friends at the Sophie Lancaster Foundation (“Stamp Out Prejudice, Hatred & Intolerance Everywhere!”) again. We look forward to rocking out at BLOODSTOCK and hope to see many of you there!”
The group are currently touring Europe with power metal vikings Sabaton, in support of their latest album ‘The Human Contradiction’, released last April via Napalm Records. Watch their latest video for ‘Stardust’:
The also newly announced Fleshgod Apocalypse will be taking stage for the Saturday night headline spot, on the Sophie Lancaster stage! The band said:
“We’re very happy to be part of this amazing festival for the first time. It’s a great honour for us and we can’t wait to crush one of the most important stages in the UK and Europe! See you all there mates!”
The band are working on their follow-up to 2013’s ‘Labyrinth’ concept album, which will hopefully surface via Nuclear Blast before the end of the year. See a preview of the carnage they are sure to bring, on this live video from Wacken 2014! –
Also appearing Saturday will be Swiss thrash metal band Battalion, metal titans Destrage, and newly reformed Bay Area hip hop thrash funksters Mordred join the Sophie Lancaster stage bill for Sunday.
