News has just reached Wyrd Ways HQ that three more bands have been announced for this year’s Bloodstock Open Air Festival at Catton Hall in Derbyshire.  Click on the image above if you haven’t got your tickets yet.  It’s looking like it’s going to be another good one.

Headlining the welcome party on the Sophie Lancaster stage on Thursday night, will be Phil Campbell‘s All-Starr Band.  The legendary Motörhead guitarslinger will also be officially opening the newly christened Lemmy’s Bar with the first drink at 5pm.  This will be their second appearance at the festival, following their appearance on the Jagermeister Stage back in 2013.

Also on the bill are British extremists The King Is Blind, following their Bloodstock debut in 2014 and release of their debut album, Our Father last month.  Frontman Stephen Tovey tells us:

“The Bloodstock crowd welcomed us with open arms and raised fists on our last visit, so on the back of Our Father, we’re primed and champing at the bit to bring a savage and energetic set of the heaviest metal to Catton Hall this August.  You bring the beers, the horns and the headbanging, we’ll bring the riffs and the truly crushing metal.”

Homegrown doomsters, Witchsorrow also join the bill. Says frontman Necroskull;

“It gives us no small amount of pleasure to once again rain doom down upon BLOODSTOCK. It is an incredibly special place for us, and we are incredibly proud to stand alongside Twisted Sister, Venom, Slayer, and Paradise Lost in bringing heavy metal madness to Catton Park. Doom forever. Forever doomed.”  

Their album, No Light, Only Fire, is available through Bandcamp or Amazon and needs your immediate attention.
