[dropcap style=”font-size:100px; color:#992211;”]S[/dropcap]even more bands for BLOODSTOCK’s Sophie Lancaster Stage!
Crash landing into Friday’s Sophie line-up are London-based metallers, I AM I. Fronted by ZP Theart (formerly of Dragonforce), I AM I are currently hard at work on their new album and follow up to their ‘Event Horizon’ debut. Check out their website at http://www.iamiofficial.com/ for video updates!
Also rocking up the bill are HANG THE BASTARD, the stoner groove road dogs who recently released second album, ‘Sex In the Seventh Circle’ via Century Media and opened for Corrosion of Conformity on their UK tour.
British thrash stalwarts RE-ANIMATOR grab themselves a slot too, after reforming in 2013 after a 20-year break.
Hard rock riff-monsters, FIRE RED EMPRESS also land a spot. You can listen to their recent ‘Paint Me The Devil’ EP over at http://fireredempress.
Last (for this announcement), but not least, Denmark’s HEXIS also bring their unique blend of hardcore and black metal doom to Friday’s line up. Friday is topped out by previously announced headliners, DELAIN!
Rock n’ roll tearaways JETTBLACK will be Saturday night’s main support to Sophie stage headliners, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE. With their brand new album, ‘Disguises’ out this week, JETTBLACK are coming out all guns blazing with a bunch of fresh tunes! Check out some album clips over at http://www.jettblackuk.com/.
