Bloodstock 2021: Evil Scarecrow and 18 more bands announced

As the weeks tick on, Bloodstock is getting nearer every day. And with that, more bands announced for the biggest metal weekend of 2021.

Just announced are 19 more bands to appear across the weekend. Headlining the Sophie Lancaster stage on Sunday are returning heroes – Evil Scarecrow:

The band had this to say about playing for the first time in over a year:

“So, we haven’t played as a band for a year. Not even a practice! We closed and abandoned our rehearsal room. Our van is gathering moss on a driveway. We have 2 new members who we have never played with. One of them was our main stagehand and we have not replaced that position. Basically, EVIL SCARECROW are, in reality, unconscious in stasis, floating through the void of space until we clear the disease-ridden Van Allen radiation belt.  Along came the good ship BLOODSTOCK, who nudged us awake to see if we will come and play with them. “No”, we mumble, “No band yet.  More sleep”. They return with a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich. “It’s headlining the Sophie Stage” they whisper.  Shit.  So, we’ve sprung back into life!  We are dusting off our props and may even have a band practice or two. So, if you want to see the most shambolic, unpracticed, unprepared EVIL SCARECROW show ever, then join us!

As the Metal 2 The Masses events going forward, many applicants will be chosen to take part. Over 600 bands have applied to play The New Blood stage.
