Joining the line-up on the main Ronnie James Dio stage are the recently reformed industrial outfit, MISERY LOVES COMPANY. The band inform us;
“The UK was always special to MISERY LOVES CO, our very first show outside of Scandinavia was in London and without the support of the British people we probably would have stayed in Scandinavia for ever, listening to ABBA, eating herring and dreaming of the outside world… MISERY LOVES CO + Britain = a true love story. Now, when we return to the stage, we’re extremely happy to showcase our industrial demons in front of the British crowd once more. Doing a summer of festivals without coming to the UK would have been a failure, so, we can’t wait to come to BLOODSTOCK!”
Here’s a little something to whet your appetite:
Opening the RJD stage on Saturday are British Tech metallers, CAMBION.
As proud BLOODSTOCK alumni (2012 and 2014), the band are currently at work on their debut album. Check out the video for Heterodox here:
Stepping into the Friday night headline slot on the Sophie Lancaster stage are NWOBHM legends, DIAMOND HEAD. The likes of Metallica have often stated that without DIAMOND HEAD, they’d probably not exist, such is the Stourbridge band’s influence. Brian Tatler and his cohorts are set to release their first album of new material in over 8 years on 22nd April, simply titled Diamond Head.
Also joining Saturday night’s Sophie stage shenanigans are Brit metallers, KRYSTHLA. The band’s debut album, A War Of Souls And Desires, can be snapped up at their Big Cartel site, along with a load of other merch. Here’s the video for lead track Luminosity:
