Bloodstock Announce Friday Night Headliner!

While large portions of the UK are cooing over the penguin in the John Lewis Christmas TV ad, over at BLOODSTOCK HQ, they prefer this little fella:

Can’t say we blame ’em.

If our SEPULTURA-listening friend is more your style too, BLOODSTOCK HQ have got your back, with three more crackin’ bands announced before the holidays, including the final headliner:

In a move that will REALLY get the whinging trolls going, Trivium have been revealed as Friday’s Main Stage headliners in a UK exclusive for 2015.  Always effusive in their praise of UK audiences, the band are thrilled to be making their first appearance at Bloodstock.  Frontman Matt Heafy raves:

“The UK is where the world first took notice of TRIVIUM, and to pay true homage to that, TRIVIUM will be playing the most Metal festival that exists in the UK: BLOODSTOCK!  We are thrilled beyond words to celebrate our first time at BLOODSTOCK with the the UK’s Metal elite.”

Swedish power metal titans (and perenial Wyrd Ways Rock Show favourites) Sabaton are elated to be locked in as Friday night’s special guests.  Bassist Par Sundstrom comments:

“We just had a kick-ass tour in the UK with lots of sold-out shows!  With this fresh in our mind, we cannot wait to return to these shores again and this time we can actually bring our full production to BLOODSTOCK!  It will be the first time we have done a show like this at a British festival!”

Portland, Oregon’s Dark Folk Metallers, Agalloch also join the bill for the Sunday.  Having released fifth studio album, The Serpent & The Sphere this summer, the band are excited to bring their atmospheric and progressive new material to Catton Park.  Check out the standout track ‘Dark Matter Gods’ from the latest album here:

In the interests of seasonal cheer, BLOODSTOCK will be upgrading two random ticket buyers up to VIP, for all purchases made before 15th December!!  Buy now to be in with a chance to win, or, if you’ve already bought yours you’ll be automatically entered into the draw!  Pick up your tickets now and you could be enjoying VIP status on site come August!!  Winners will be announced and contacted with the good news before Christmas.

Like the music in the penguin video?  Don’t forget, you can see SEPULTURA at BLOODSTOCK next Summer too.  No penguins will be appearing, but all of these awesome bands are…. Saturday’s headliner WITHIN TEMPTATION and special guests OPETH, Sunday’s headliner ROB ZOMBIE, plus CANNIBAL CORPSE, IHSAHN, ORANGE GOBLIN, DEATH TA, NUCLEAR ASSAULT, 1349, DARK ANGEL, ARMORED SAINT, BELPHEGOR, OVERKILL, and ENSIFERUM.  Heaps more bands are still to be announced in the coming weeks!
