Bloodstock have announced the first round of artists scheduled to play at the annual metal festival at Catton Hall in Derbyshire. The festival will return next year for their twentieth anniversary, from August 6 to August 9. The first bands confirmed for the gig include a debut appearance from UK band, Vio-lence, Skindred, Black Dahlia Murder, Butcher Babies, Sacred Reich and Dark Tranquility. More acts for the metal gig are set to be announced later on.
Announcements were unveiled through Youtube and Twitter. Skindred, responsible for hits including ‘Nobody’ and ‘Kill the Power’, were amongst the line up at Download 2019 back in June. In a review of the festival, the article offered this to say about the band’s frontman Benji Webbe, “Webbe is arguably one of the best frontmen out there, and it does feel like, today, that’s been recognised.”
Tickets are available through Bloodstock’s official website. Last weekend, Bloodstock 2019 took place. The Catton Hall festival included performances from bands Children of Bodom, Scorpions and Parkway Drive.
This year’s Bloodstock was however plagued by weather problems, which saw Anthrax playing a shorter than desired set, with worse still, Cradle of Filth’s set being pulled altogether. Parkway Drive did finally take to the stage, reportedly around thirty minutes after initially scheduled.
Back in April, Skindred released the lyric video for the single ‘Loud and Clear’, lifted from their seventh album, ‘Big Tings’. The release of the album coincided with an April tour with Disturbed. Skindred drummer Arya Goggins said. “Finally, to round off the year, we are taking the That’s My Jam tour to Europe with Blood Command as our special guest, which finishes in late December. So, in short, it’s going to be a rollercoaster of a year!”
The ‘That’s My Jam’ European tour begins on November 29 in Amsterdam and ends in Lille on December 19.
